WaterField is a luxury bag maker that creates high-end bags and sleeves for electronics. We've reviewed the Rolltop Backpack this year and the Outback Solo for the Surface Go, each receiving high praise from our executive editor Daniel Rubino. Now, WaterField announced four new sleeves for the brand new line of Surface devices, the SleeveCase, Dash Sleeve, Vero Leather Laptop Sleeve, and Outback Solo. The Surface Pro 7 sleeves are shipping now, while the Surface Laptop 3 cases will ship on November 1, and the Surface Pro X cases will ship on November 20.
The SleeveCase is a water-resistant sleeve with options for either a black ballistic nylon or tan waxed canvas shell. It has shock-absorbing neoprene to protect the device and a padded flap to keep the sleeve closed. It can be used as a shoulder bag with option D-rings or as a standalone sleeve. The SleeveCase costs $69, but D-rings ($5), the Suspension Shoulder Strap ($22), and Piggyback accessory pouch ($34) cost extra. It's available for the Surface Pro X, Surface Pro 7, and Surface Laptop 3.
The Dash Sleeve features impact-resistant compression foam inside either a ballistic nylon, waxed canvas or Luna woven textile exterior. It has an open-top so you can access ports and accessories and a rear mesh pocket. The Dash Sleeve costs $79. It's available for the Surface Pro X, Surface Pro 7, and Surface Laptop 3.
The Vero Leather Sleeve is made from handcrafted hide that can build a patina over time. It has an ultra-plush liner to cushion your device and a leather strap along the base to reinforce the bag and make it easier to remove devices. The Vero Leather Sleeve is available for $119. It's available for the Surface Pro X and Surface Pro 7.
The Outback Solo is a sleeve and bag hybrid with neoprene on the inside, and water-resistant tan waxed canvas on the outside. It has a leather flap with a magnet to secure the device and a pleated front pocket for accessories and other items. It has a removable strap so you can use it as a sleeve or a bag. The Outback Solo is the most expensive of the new items at $159. It's available for the Surface Pro X and Surface Pro 7.
Many of the sleeves come in several sizes that snuggly fit a range of devices. The Outback Solo has the widest range of sizes, including options for the Surface Go, iPad Pro, MacBook Pro, and Surface Book, in addition to the new Surface Pro X and Surface Pro 7 sizes.
This sleeve comes in waxed canvas or vegan-friendly ballistic nylon. It has optional D-rings that allow you to use it as a bag or just as a sleeve.
This sleeve comes in black ballistic nylon or blue, green, gray, or red Luna textile that's coated with a Nanotex water and stain-resistant coating.
This sleeve comes chocolate or grizzly-hued premium full-grain leather.
The Outback Solo can be used as a sleeve or a bag thanks to its removable strap. It' available in tan waxed canvas or ballistic nylon with a chocolate leather flap.
