Well I just ordered my WaterField case for my Air 13. I got the horizontal with leather and D rings with strap. I was going to get the extra piggy pouch but decided not to at the last minute...I guess I can always order later if I decide I really want it. I cant wait to receive it, I will post a mini review once I have it...it seems like a good product.

Cool story bro. Would've been even cooler had you posted in an existing thread.

I received mine a few weeks ago. You will not be dissappointed. This is my first Waterfield product, but far from my last.

No different than the 5-10 wobbling/creaking threads, multiple "which one should I get", and other threads we see so many of. :)

Yup, you'll like the WF case for the Air. I have the vertical with flap since I use a vertical style 'carry my junk' bag in the ballistic nylon as well.

Just got my case in the mail. First impression: very good craftsmanship. Material looks and feels very sturdy. I am very happy with my purchase. It fits like a glove.

I do have two minor complaints.

1. The strap did not have the "made in SF" tag on it....like I have seen in pictures others have posted. I just kind liked the way the tag looked. I am going to email Gary see if they can send me another one with it but if not, I guess not a big deal.

2. Someone else commented on the smell and I agree. I smells pretty bad but I am hoping that is just temporary and part of the construction smell(adhesive etc) that will go away.

Let me know if anyone has any questions.

Any padding?

I ordered and am using a Waterfield for my 13" MBA as well, but went with the vertical orientation, because it fits my notebook-backpack better that way.

Got the beefier shoulder strap, but plan on returning it as it's overkill for the Waterfield case and too bulky to pack. I'll be looking for a less-bulky strap.

Still, a good product, with excellent workmanship, made in the USA. And I don't think $86 shipped is that bad for what you get (Leather trim, flap, shoulder strap...)

Any padding?

Yes. 1/4 neoprene padding. Very nice, very secure.

Any padding?

Yes, they do very well protecting your machine.

Yes, padding is better than most if not all sleeves I have seen for the Air.

Never really liked the waterfield look. But nice, congrats!

Got mine today. Went with the flap, standard lower section and no strap.

What a great case! Excellent service, including a hand written note on the invoice thanking me for my business.

Just enough padding to keep my new baby safe in the event of a drop and still thin enough to fit inside a larger case if need be.

Just got my sleeve case and vertigo bag from the g/f for Christmas. It's everything I expected, which obviously was a lot given the praise these things have been getting around here. My MBA has been naked for over a month now so I'm really happy to finally have some protection for it!

Anyone else's sleeve have like grease stains on them?

Can't wait to get mine (horizontal, flap, no leather, no strap), I hate not being able to take my MBA with me (no chance I'm taking it with me without proper protection). Nonetheless, thanks for the thread, now I know I made the right choice.

I;ve got one on order for my ultimate 13" Air. I've bought lots of their products in the past and have always been very satisfied.

Just received mine for my 13" MBA, and I must say that I'm amazed by the quality of this sleeve case.:)
