Featured Review: Waterfield Smart Case for the Nexus 7

April 13, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Today, we’re taking a look at a new Smart Case from Waterfield. They create a variety of different cases and sleeves for laptops, tablets, portable gaming systems and even smartphones. The Smart Case we’re looking at today is available for both the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. It’s also available in 6 different colors. The smart case has multi-layered padding and includes a high-impact, rigid insert along with an Ultrasuede scratch-free liner. It’s under an inch thin, yet it still provides quite a bit of protection for your Nexus 7 or 10. There is also a pocket on the outside which is made of mesh and is a nice place to put your headphones, charger or anything else you might want to take with you.

The Smart Case is probably the best tablet sleeve I’ve ever used. I have the Green one for the Nexus 7 and my tablet slides in real nice and snug, but it’s not hard for it to come out either. Of course, it’s hard for it to slide out on it’s own which is always a good thing. The mesh pocket on the side is a really nice touch, because I can easily throw in my Nexus 7 charger or a pair of headphones when I’m leaving the house. I can even throw in a portable charger.

If you’re one of those that loves to keep your Nexus 7 or 10 naked, without a case but still want the protection of a case. This is probably the best alternative. As it will provide protection when you’re walking around with it, but when you want to use it it’ll still be thin and sleek and naked.

You can pick up the Smart Case from WaterField’s website. The Nexus 7 Smart Case is $57 and the Nexus 10 Smart case is $59. WaterField also has many other cases and products that you might want to check out as well. Probably the best apart about WaterField’s cases are that they are made in San Francisco, so you’re supporting an American company. And not a company that has their products made somewhere else – like China.
