Swimming with Screens

Make a splash with sleek and stylishly stitched laptop cases upcycled from excess wetsuit material that otherwise would have been discarded. This cushy nylon neoprene protects your laptop from scratches, bumps and thumps, while keeping a slim profile. Small zippered pockets hold loose change, business cards or other small items. Made in China.

The goal of upcycling is to prevent wasting potentially useful materials by making use of existing ones. This reduces the consumption of new raw materials when creating new products. Reducing the use of new raw materials can result in a reduction of energy usage, air pollution, water pollution and even greenhouse gas emissions.

I use this case for my 13 inch MacBook Air. It fits inside perfect, although there is no extra space for accessories.

    Comments about UPCYCLED WETSUIT LAPTOP SLEEVE: 13":

    I love this product! What pushed me over the edge? the color! After reading the reviews that said it was bright orange, well i was hooked and not disappointed.

    I do travel frequently for work, so the thin padding of the case has me slightly worried. But i will definitetly not mistake my computer for anyone elses when going through security.

    Since i have started to use the product, so many people are attracted to the playfuliness of the product. And i can tell them i am helping to save the earth at the same time!

      I'm a full-time college student so I needed something to protect my new computer between home and school. This totally does the job! The case is not quite as thick as a regular neoprene case but it's thick enough to provide protection from scratches and most bumps your computer will encounter. Really love my case.

          Needed a protective cover for my laptop: not too bulky and not too anonymous. Love the idea of using excess material. Love the swirly stitching. Got it in time for big trip. Will look good while lugging it through airport security.

          The two pockets were an surprise bonus - great to tuck a key fob into. Fits the computer like a glove.

          Excellent way to use "upcycled" material

          My nephew recently purchased a mini-laptop. The wetsuit "upcyled" material worked out perfectly to protect his valuable "investment". Fit in perfectly with his new adventures of scubba diving too :0) The two outer pockets also protect his iPod and his mini-mouse. Couldn't have chosen a better product!

          Keeping it because it was a wetsuit

          the orange is construction cone orange. brighter than picture. the wetsuit is not the most protective/thick for a laptop but i'm keeping it because I like upcycling. and i don't travel much with my laptop. if you want something truly protective, i would not suggest this
