For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with WaterField Designs to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Bolt Briefcase for the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro. For those unfamiliar with WaterField Designs, it's a small San Francisco-based company that specializes in high-quality bags and sleeves for Apple devices.
The Bolt Briefcase comes in Small, Medium, and Large, to fit up to a 17-inch laptop, and it comes in six different color combinations in either ballistic nylon or waxed canvas, both of which feature leather accents and splash-proof zippers. Ballistic is more professional and lighter in weight, while the waxed canvas is more casual and will become better looking as it ages.
The Briefcase has a padded laptop compartment to keep a notebook safe from drops and damage, along with two deep interior pockets for holding things like hard drives and power supplies, and a bunch of exterior pockets.
There are two quick access pockets at the front for things that are used frequently, like a smartphone or earphones. Above that, there's a zippered iPad-sized pocket that can hold a tablet or paper documents, and at the back, there's a pocket to allow it to fit over a suitcase handle and another to hold newspapers or magazines.
WaterField's Bolt Briefcase can be purchased from the company's website for $249 for the Small (13-inch laptops), $259 for the Medium (15-inch laptops), and $279 for the Large (17-inch laptops).
