WaterField Designs Inc., creator of the Custom Fit SleeveCase for laptops,\u00a0says proper notebook PC protection starts with a proper fit. The San-Francisco-based\u00a0company\u00a0will\u00a0make Custom Fit SleeveCases for virtually any laptop. Each SleeveCase\u00a0is made of\u00a0high-grade neoprene wrapped in a ballistic nylon shell. And the Custom Fit SleeveCases are TSA friendly, according to the company.\n\tThe Custom Fit SleeveCase\u00a0can be\u00a0purchased as\u00a0a stand-alone laptop-sleeve or as a bag with shoulder straps.\u00a0If you choose to use the\u00a0product as a stand-alone\u00a0sleeve you can\u00a0specify the \u201cD-Ring\u201d option when placing an order. If\u00a0you want to use the\u00a0sleeve as bag\u00a0you simply specify what type of shoulder strap you want, and you\u2019re good to go.\n\tTo ensure the proper fit for your laptop, WaterField asks for horizontal\u00a0and vertical\u00a0measurements, and the company\u00a0posted\u00a0a video\u00a0on how to\u00a0get a\u00a0suitable measurement using\u00a0a tape measure. Additional information such laptop height, width and depth are also requested, though the company is flexible, and it will\u00a0work with details such as the model number of laptops (and battery option where applicable) for newly purchased laptops that you may not have in hand to measure.\n\tThe\u00a0Custom Fit SleeveCases\u00a0are available in horizontal or vertical orientations, and you choose\u00a0whether you want flap closure or not.\u00a0\u201cLead Indium\u201d or \u201cBrown Leather\u201d trim can be added to the Custom Fit SleeveCase,\u00a0and you can also get\u00a0an additional \u201cPiggyback\u201d pouch.\u00a0The Piggyback is a small bag with two small metal snap-hooks that attach to the metal D-rings\u00a0on the\u00a0SleeveCase's\u00a0shoulder strap. The removable pouch is a convenient way to carry accessories such as power adapters, mice, sync cables and other peripherals.\n\tThe\u00a0neoprene\u00a0that composes the\u00a0WaterField Custom Fit SleeveCase isn\u2019t thick enough to save your laptop from a bad fall. But it is good protection\u00a0against occasional bumps and knocks. And\u00a0I am impressed by the impeccable stitching and overall craftmanship of the product, which is made entirely in San Francisco. As such,\u00a0the SleeveCase should last for a long time.\n\tThe Custom Fit SleeveCase by WaterField costs $49 for a basic protective sleeve without flap, but you'll have to shell out\u00a0$123 for the case with all the various customization options. The cost of the case may be a bit much\u00a0if you plan to use it with a\u00a0$399 netbook, but it is a\u00a0reasonable price if you plan to use it with an expensive laptop. And the case sure is unique; I am not aware of any other company that makes customized laptop cases with the same kind of quality and style.\u00a0The company also makes SleeveCases for Mac Laptops, the iPad and other tablets.\n\tThe WaterField Custom Fit SleeveCase\u00a0hugged my Sony laptop to protect it against bumps and knocks.\n\tThe Custom Fit SleeveCase is available\u00a0with Lead Inidium and Brown Leather trims; the latter is shown in the picture here.\n\tA close-up short of the D-ring on the Custom Fit SleeveCase with shoulder strap and Piggyback pouch attached.\n\tThe Piggyback has internal pockets to hold peripherals like computer mice and power adapters.\n\tThe Custom Fit SleeveCase is made entirely in San Francisco.
