WaterField Designs Introduces New Gear - WaterField Designs Introduces New Gear
Tue, June 10 2003 | 2:58PM | PermaLink Feedback?

WaterField Designs, a leading maker of custom-fitted computer cases and bags, today introduced a new model of its Racer-X computer case product line that is custom-sized for the recently released Apple 12-inch PowerBook notebook computer. This new model joins the current Racer-X computer cases for the 17-inch PowerBook and 15-inch Titanium PowerBook. WaterField now has a Racer-X model optimized for each Apple PowerBook model.

"I designed a different size of the Racer-X specifically for each PowerBook," said Gary Waterfield, chief designer at WaterField Designs. "Each Racer-X is tailored precisely for each PowerBook size to ensure maximum protection while maintaining a compact size and light weight. Judging from the runaway success of our recently introduced Racer-X for the 17-inch PowerBook, we think we have a winning formula with this newest Racer-X."

The 12-inch Racer-X computer case is 12.25 inches wide, 10 inches tall, and 4.5 inches deep. The case features two zippered, interior compartments: one that encases and protects the PowerBook with layers of plush neoprene, foam, and corrugated plastic; and another for documents and files that also has pockets to keep accessories such as DVDs, spare batteries, and ac adaptors organized. It also has an exterior pocket for magazines and files and another pocket that conveniently slips over most carry-on luggage handles. Racer-X computer cases have an exterior lined with wear-resistant military grade ballistic nylon and trimmed with Indium fabric that come in a choice of five colors. The cases can be hand-carried with its slip-resistant mountain bike grip or carried on the shoulder with its comfortable, removable shoulder strap. They are designed and manufactured to exacting standards in San Francisco and come with a lifetime warranty for manufacturing defects.

Availability and Pricing: The Racer-X computer case for the 12-inch PowerBook is available today at for $129. Racer-X computer cases for the 17-inch and 15-inch Apple PowerBook models are available today at for $139 and $134, respectively.

WaterField Designs Ships New Case for New Apple iPod

WaterField Designs, a leading maker of custom-fitted, computer cases and bags, today started shipping its new iPod Case that is specifically designed for the recently released, new Apple iPod. The new WaterField Designs iPod Case has a bottom-entry design for easy use with the new iPod docking station. It also has a slit on the bottom to enable users to easily attach a cable to the iPod's new bottom slot. And like the previous iPod case, the main controls are not covered with plastic, which more easily allows the user to use the iPod's buttons by touch and which will not accumulate debris that could lodge underneath the plastic. All WaterField products come with a lifetime warranty for manufacturing defects.

"Apple really improved its already great iPod, and we've improved our popular iPod Case as well," said Gary Waterfield, chief designer at WaterField Designs. "While others have announced that they will sell a case for the new iPod in the future, WaterField Designs is proud to be one of the first, if not THE first, to actually release to market an iPod case designed specifically for the new iPod. It's one of the many benefits of designing and manufacturing in the USA."

Availability and Pricing: The new WaterField Designs iPod Case is available today at  for $40.
