If you buy a powerful new Mac Studio desktop computer and you need to take it somewhere, what are you going to do? Re-pack it? Here’s a better idea. Get a stylish and protective new carrying case like the one WaterField Designs just released.

The San Francisco-based luxury bag maker for tech gear adds the new Mac Studio Shield Case to its list of quality goods, including sturdy leather AirTag accessories and a cool AirPods Max case that Apple should’ve made.

WaterField Designs Mac Studio Shield Case

The new Mac Studio Shield Case is designed to help you transport your Mac Studio computer and accessories. WaterField said it protects your gear from bumps and scratches in a “tough and rugged case lined in ultra-soft material and surrounded with foam padding.”

The foam padding also gives the case structure, WaterField said. The case’s bottom is reinforced with additional neoprene for a soft landing when the case is set down.

Front and back pockets on the sturdy little case hold accessories and keep them from bumping against your Mac Studio. And you can add an optional Supreme Suspension Strap for carrying your computer comfortably over your shoulder. When you’re not using the strap, carry the case by its leather handle.

And fans of products made in the U.S. should take note: “All our products are designed and made in our San Francisco workshop, where rent is high, labor expensive, and competition intense. We wouldn’t go anywhere else,” WaterField declares on its website.
