Protect Your 2013 Nexus 7 the Waterfield Way!

Waterfield Nexus 7 cases

I broke down and ordered one of the second generation Nexus 7 tablets the other day. As much as I love my iPad, I really wanted to see what the latest generation of Google’s tablet has to offer. Knowing it is on the way, I wanted to make sure I had a good way to carry and protect it. Thankfully our friends at Waterfield have some great cases that will keep the new Nexus 7 pristine when on the go. Let’s take a quick look at just a few of the cases that are sized perfectly for the slightly smaller — but oh so much more powerful — Nexus 7 2.

Waterfield CitySlicker Tablet Case

CitySlicker Tablet Case: I love the CitySlicker I have for the 11″ MacBook air and can see it being a terrific case for the Nexus 7. The CitySlicker offers three layers of protection— impact-resistant plastic and high-grade neoprene and a padded liner— that will keep the Nexus tablet safe and snug. Beneath the leather flap there are multiple accessory pockets. Options include handle, D-rings, and strap with prices starting at $89.

Tablet Smart Case: If you like a simple slipcase this is the case for you. The Smart Case offers multi-layered padding that includes a high-impact, rigid insert and an Ultrasuede scratch-free liner.
