Earlier this year, I reviewed the Outback Solo for iPad Air from WaterField Designs. That’s the link if you want to read the review, but the basic gist is that the Outback Solo is the kind of product that makes you want to take your iPad places you otherwise wouldn’t just so you have an excuse to use the bag. And now that there’s an Outback Solo for the 13″ MacBook Air, you’ll be doing it with that, too.
Made of the same rugged waxed canvas and premium leather as the iPad Air version, the Outback Solo for MacBook Air looks professional enough for work and fashionable enough for whatever you end up doing on the way home.
The Outback Solo cradles the MacBook Air with two layers of protection—high-grade neoprene enveloped in highly water-resistant, tan waxed canvas. The offset, brown, distressed premium leather flap secures contents with a firm magnetic closure and lends the bag a vintage look. Two front pockets fit a smartphone or iPad Mini, necessities like wallet and keys, and a charger for overnight trips when the new 12-hour battery is not enough. An optional strap transforms the MacBook Air case into a svelte, minimalist over-the-shoulder bag.
The Outback Solo for 13″ MacBook Air is available in waxed canvas with a naturally-tanned, premium chocolate leather flap, and will run you $109. If you opt for the shoulder strap, that’ll cost you another $19. That isn’t cheap, we know, but quality rarely is. You can pre-order the Outback Solo for MacBook Air now, with shipment expected on May 16, 2014.
