WaterField Designs has served up another elegant carry case with the Outback Solo for the 12-inch MacBook. It's a handsome, practical US$109 case made of waxed canvas and premium leather.
Not only does it hold your MacBook with style, it’s great for carrying an iPhone and iPad mini, as well. Two front pockets hold a smartphone or smaller tablet, items such as wallets and keys, and a charger for an overnight trip. An optional strap ($19) transforms the case into an over-the-shoulder bag. I’d recommend springing for this as it's extremely handy when you’re hoofing it.
The Outback Solo is durable and offers substantial protection. It cradles the MacBook Air with two layers: neoprene enveloped in highly water-resistant, tan waxed canvas. If you need a Mac Book case that's both stylish and rugged, the Outback Solo fills the bill.
