WaterField Helps you Take Tender Care of that Magic Trackpad

I’m not certain why you’d want to carry a Magic Trackpad around with you since the MacBook has one built in, but we won’t judge if you’re using two hands with two trackpads for double the precision. (Is that even possible?) Being the careful gadget nerds we are, we’re always looking to sheath our trusty peripherals. WaterField has a couple of neat sleeves that’ll not only keep your Magic Trackpad warm and cozy, it’ll also protect your device from any unfortunate water-bottle spillage as you bike down crazy street with your man bag.

Waterfield Socket

Waterfield Socket

It’s a few too letters for “sock,” but WaterField’s Socket is the padded pouch for a student budget. At only $12, its pocketed design is fitted for the #1 mouse alternative.

Waterfield Slip

Waterfield Slip

But don’t look away too fast. WaterField’s Slip can stop bullets with it’s ballistic nylon casing that comes in any style you choose. I’m partial to red, but these bad boys will set you back $25 for superior trackpad protection.
