WaterField Designs, a design firm based in San Francisco, is now letting customers create their own laptop SleeveCase.
The SleeveCase, which resembles a portfolio, is a neoprene skin that’s encapsulated by abrasive-resistant Ballistic nylon. The neoprene provides shock absorption, while the Ballistic keeps the SleeveCase “looking like new for many years,” according to the folks at WaterField. See our

Previously available only in a horizontal version, WaterField Designs is now introducing a vertical size that’s more appropriate for inserting into backpacks. WaterField is letting users customize their own SleeveCase by adding a strap or a flap front covering, according to Gary Waterfield, company founder.
To customize a SleeveCase, first you choose a size based on your laptop, then the orientation, either vertical or horizontal. Then you can add a flap for additional protection, if you wish. Or you can add a strap that includes D-rings, and a non-slip WaterField Shoulder Pad.
SleeveCase prices range from US$35 to $42, an additional flap is $15, and the additional strap, D-rings and shoulder pad are $25.
