Nice going Waterfield Designs. I like the fact that these sleeves are customizable.
They don't list one that fits the XPS 15. Any idea if any of the other sizes will fit it?
Seems a bit expensive to me.
I don't think this needs to be in the news feed. I mean someone will say, "it's related to MS," well so is the weather, as in the general weather, between apps and meteorology, so that argument doesn't really hold up.
On the other hand, they are nice bags.
Meh......I'd rather use something that had some actual padding, that I could carry with a handle. These look way too thin to actually protect a real laptop from a regular fall. Plus they are pricey for sleeves or something without a handle.
Perhaps a detachable handle option would have been clever.
