CitySlicker MacBook Air Case Offers Standout Protection and Style for the Mobile Office

Share Article

Take your MacBook Air mobile office along in WaterField Designs’ thin and light CitySlicker— a case so well-made it not only outlasts the new Apple battery, but even the laptop itself. The black ballistic nylon exterior is graced with a supple leather flap that snaps into place, giving the case a clean, retro look.

WaterField Designs, an innovative leader in locally-manufactured laptop sleeves and designer bags and cases for digital gear, announces the svelte CitySlicker, a protective case that complements the MacBook Air’s thin, light body. The MacBook Air's improved battery life and enhanced Wi-Fi performance now allows people to stay connected all day, all the time. As working in cafes, restaurants, and bookstores becomes the norm, protection-on-the-go is a high priority. To keep the slim MacBook Air safe and secure without adding weight or bulk, WaterField Designs' MacBook Air Case is the perfect answer.

Measuring just an inch-and-a-half wide, the CitySlicker MacBook Air Case keeps the laptop snug in lightweight layers of padded lining, neoprene, and impact-resistant plastic. The black ballistic nylon exterior is graced with a supple leather flap that snaps into place, giving the case a clean, retro look. Customers can choose from bold or subtle leather colors. Small, stretchy pockets underneath the flap and a backside, semi-opaque pocket with self-locking zippers keep accessories organized. Options include adding a handle, a strap, or both.

WaterField offers MacBook Air sleeve and bags for Apple’s new 11- and 13-inch models in addition to the CitySlicker. These include the classic SleeveCase, Outback Sleeve, Suede Jacket, Smart Case, Air Wallet and Travel Express. Thirteen-inch specialty laptop bags include the Racer-X, HardCase, Muzetto (Leather and Outback styles) and Medium VertiGo.

"The challenge of designing a case for the Air is figuring out how to keep it thin and lightweight, even with the chunky, square power supply”, shared founder Gary Waterfield. “We found a creative way to do this with the CitySlicker. The new Air may have a really long battery life, but people will still need their power supply when they’re out and about.”
