  • Compact and custom-fitted, the case protects the Mac Studio and accessories in transport.
  • Closed-cell foam on all sides disperses external forces and resists compression.
  • High-grade neoprene­, in addition to foam, cushions the bottom for extra protection when the case is set down.
  • Plush padded lining — as soft as a puppy’s ear — cradles the Mac Studio.
  • Waterproof YKK zippers open on all three sides with dual custom zipper pulls that overlap to accommodate a lock.
  • A plush-lined, zippered front pocket keeps a power cord and mouse (or other small items) readily accessible. 
  • An open-topped, stretch mesh, rear pocket stows additional connecting cables or accessories.
  • A sturdy, leather-wrapped handle, both sewn and riveted, facilitates a quick grab.
  • Metal D-rings attach to an optional strap to carry the case over one shoulder.
