Our new cashmere-soft lining is amazing; run your fingers through it, and you’ll know your MacBook is getting top treatment.

WaterField Designs announces the refined Zip Brief, created to protect and showcase the new 12-inch Apple MacBook. Ideal for portability, the ultra-slim Zip looks sleek from every angle. Lined with sumptuously-soft material, the Zip’s internal pockets cradle the MacBook on one side and accessories on the other, and an angled front pocket holds a smartphone, wallet or commuter pass. The exterior combines leather with waxed canvas or ballistic nylon for a comfortable yet sophisticated look. TSA-friendly, the Zip can be fully opened for airport security while contents remain safely secured.

“The new 12-inch MacBook is so elegant that we wanted to create a brief that enhanced its sleek design,” said owner Gary Waterfield. “We created a compact, lightweight case that stays ultra-slim even when packed, and we carefully designed it to included only necessary features. Our new cashmere-soft lining is amazing; run your fingers through it, and you’ll know your MacBook is getting top treatment.”

The Zip Brief is available in tan waxed canvas or black ballistic nylon with full-grain, naturally-tanned leather trim. Inside, plush padding cushions the 12-inch Apple MacBook in a custom-sized pocket and an additional two pockets protect and stow a hard drive, power supply or other accessories. A few files or a notebook fit easily into the center main compartment. For quick access items, an angled front pocket keeps items safe yet accessible. Waterproof zippers extend around three sides of the Zip, allowing travelers to lay the MacBook bag flat and leave contents inside and protected when going through airport security. The Zip has two nylon handles and a removable suspension shoulder strap. When closed, the Zip’s sleek profile hangs lightly against the body.
