It’s a timeless design and so carefully crafted that it is likely to outlast your device.

WaterField Designs, a San Francisco manufacturer of custom laptop sleeves, bags and cases for digital gear, unveils the upgraded Dash 2.0 iPad and MacBook Sleeve in custom sizes for Apple’s new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, the 12.9 inch iPad Pro and the updated MacBook laptops. The ultra-light and protective laptop sleeve now includes a rear, zippered mesh pocket for accessories, a choice of a vertical- or horizontal-oriented opening for easy use with backpacks or briefcases, and a colorful new highly-durable fabric coated with water-resistant Nanotex®. The slim Dash complements the agile appeal of the Apple’s svelte iPads and MacBooks while offering stylish, rugged protection on the go.

“We wanted to maintain the sleek design of the Dash while enhancing its functionality, so we added a zippered back pocket to secure the Apple Pencil, cords and other accessories,” explained owner Gary WaterField. “The slim Dash takes up very little space within another bag, and the new colorful material is water-resistant. It’s a timeless design and so carefully crafted that it is likely to outlast your device.”

The new ultra-lightweight, custom-fitted Dash 2.0 protects iPads and MacBooks with plush lining, impact-resistant compression foam and an outer shell available in ballistic nylon or a new blue, green, red or gray Luna® tweed-like textile coated in Nanotex® for extra water and abrasion resistance. The open-topped Dash allows access to ports for recharging even with the laptop inside, while an elastic top band keeps the laptop securely within the sleeve. A rear zippered mesh pocket holds cords and accessories and includes a dedicated Ultrasuede® holder for the Apple Pencil.
