BOULDER, Colo. (March 22, 2021) – Matador Travel Equipment, the award-winning producer of high-performance travel equipment, today introduced the Laptop Base Layer and Camera Base Layer, lightweight, waterproof protective cases for transporting cameras, laptops and other valuable electronics. The base layers feature flexible and durable exteriors for padded protection, and seam-sealed, rolltop liners for waterproofing against extreme conditions.

“Traveling with electronics can be a total nightmare – potentially compromising thousands of dollars’ worth of equipment,” said Chris Clearman, Founder and CEO of Matador. “We wanted to eliminate that stress and provide superior protection for all your technological valuables. The Laptop and Camera Base Layers offer the peace of mind so you never have to worry about your tech again, and you can focus on the road ahead.”

The Laptop Base Layer offers a waterproof layer of padded protection, designed to fit most laptops that are 16 inches and smaller. An adjustable fold-over closure provides a customized fit and fast access, and the cushioned shell provides protection from bumps and scratches. An integrated drybag and rolltop closure offer full waterproof protection when needed. The Laptop Base Layer additionally features a carry handle and an external pocket for chargers and accessories.

The Camera Base Layer, a revamped version of one of Matador’s best-selling products, is designed to protect mirrorless and compact DSLR cameras during travel and outdoor pursuits, with insulative synthetic padding and an integrated drybag. An innovative magnetic closure system provides instant, one-handed camera access, and a seam-sealed liner offers full waterproofing. The Camera Base Layer can be used with a camera strap or clipped to a backpack using an integrated aluminum carabiner. It also features a zipper pocket for storing lens caps and other accessories.

The Matador Laptop Base Layer (MSRP: $59.99) and Camera Base Layer (MSRP: $74.99) are available now at select retailers and online at
