For a gift this week, we’ve teamed up with WaterField Designs to give MacRumors readers a chance to win an Apple Accessory Package that includes a Pro Executive Laptop Bag and AirPods Max Shield Case.
This “giveaway” is unique because these two products were created through the WaterField Designs community design process, whereby the company receives feedback from clients during the design and prototyping process so that the resulting product meets their most important customers’ needs.
The Pro Executive Backpack, $ 389, combines the functionality of the backpack with the style of a professional leather bag. It is constructed from black ballistic nylon with touches of full-grain leather available in chocolate, gray, black or scarlet.
There are two main compartments. The front room is designed to accommodate all the necessities needed for a day in the office, while the back room is closed and can carry a MacBook, iPad or documents. The backpack can be paired with an optional executive bag that doubles as a case for your MacBook. The Backpack Pro is compatible with all Apple MacBook models, including the 16-inch MacBook Pro.
When placed, the backpack is designed to stay upright for easy access to the items inside, and there are padded shoulder straps and a back notch for use with the travel bag. With the main compartments, there are two large side pockets, a deep front pocket and two zip pockets on the front panel that can be accessed when the backpack is folded from the shoulder.
The AirPods Max Shield case is available at $ 89, which is the case that Apple should have offered with the AirPods Max instead of the Smart Case, which has proven unpopular with AirPods Max owners. Unlike the default smart case, WaterField Designs’ AirPods Max Shield Case provides complete protection for your AirPods Max.
The AirPods Max Shield Case is ideal if you need to store the AirPods Max in a backpack or travel bag. It has three layers of protection plus a luxurious soft interior that protects “AirPods Max” from scratches. Waterproof fasteners are included to protect against accidental water damage, and the fasteners can be partially closed to allow charging in the case.
There is an interior pocket to accommodate the power adapter or other accessories, an expandable mesh back pocket and an easy access panel at the front. A nylon loop at the top can be added to a carabiner or used as a handle. The built-in magnetic butterfly function is designed to put “AirPods Max” in low power mode when placed in the case to save battery life, and acts as a separator between the ear cups.
There are several leather variants for $ 99, as well as four vegan options of Forza Waterproof Fabric available for $ 89. Both versions are identical except for the exterior materials. There is one model in chocolate / brushed leather, and three in black, blue, and crimson leather and ballistic nylon. Vegan models are available in black, green, red, and blue.
