I have been shopping for sleeves for the air and haven't found many that I like. There is only really this one (http://www.overdriveelectronics.com/products/Case-Logic-MAS%252d13-Reversible-Black-and-Gray-Neoprene-MacBook-Air-Notebook-Sleeve.html) that I really like. Why don't I just buy it then?? Because I am not sure if it is even made anymore unfortunately. Does anyone know of any stores that may have some old stock hanging around? Might be a long shot but who knows.

If not the other one that I like is this one (http://www.caselogic.com/13_macbook_pro_laptop_sleeve/product_detail/index.cfm?modelid=150153&productid=10018545). However, it is made for a pro and from what I have read, even the pros fit loosely in it, meaning that an air would feel lost in it. I am looking for a case that fits the air tight, is made of neoprene, and would like if it had pockets for usb etc, but that's not a deal breaker. I am not too worried about impact resistance since I will be carrying it in a padded pocket in my backpack, I am more worried about scratches and water.

So.. anyone know of a store with the first case or have suggestions for a similar one?

There are plenty of neoprene sleeves for the MacBook Air, and there have been threads on it in the past. I like the Tucano Second Skin line, since it has an inner lining to prevent the zipper from scratching it.

I'm using that as well. The inner lining IMHO serve much better to prevent your precious MBA slip out when you unzip the sleeve.;)

okay thanks, i like the looks of that one. My first question still stands though, does anyone know where to get the case logic MAS-13?

For the thinnest and simplest protection (no zipper to scratch anything) I use the iSkinz.com (http://www.iSkinz.com) sleeve. Best part- $20.

That's a really nice case. I like how it opens up at the end, rather than being an open-sleeve at the end.

that is the sleeve i just got. i do like it but you should know that image is sort of misleading. it makes it seem like the top flap is not secured in anyway and will just sort of lay on top to close it. this is not how it works at all. it's neoprene so that top flap doesn't actually flap open like that, although that would be awesome.

instead, you shove it in (easy enough) but then the last 20% of the MBA is still outside the case. then you have to stretch the rest of the case around it to actually close it. it can take a good 30 seconds. really hoping this loosens up over time.

Thanks everyone, I really like both of those. I think I will go with the Iskinz one though just because it is half the price of the other one.

I went with the incase version because of how it is padded all around the MBA's edges. It has neoprene piping around the perimeter.

okay, tried to buy the iskinz one but i guess they can't ship it to canada so maybe i'll just go with the other one.

edit: just realized its only for the 11" as well so it wouldnt have fit my air anyway.

Thanks for all the feedback guys. The one i ended up going with was this one (http://www.tucanousa.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=BF-NU-A13). I liked the way the tucano looks, it looks like it fits the air nice and tight and looks like its good quality. I also got it for 30 bucks shipped to canada so it was pretty cheap as well

These are really nice sleeves (especially that Cocoon one), but they look a bit 'bendy'. Not that I intend to bend or deliberately apply any shearing forces to my MBA :)

Does anyone know of any slim but sturdy/rigid/firm 13" sleeves? I should also mention that I live in the UK so I'd like to avoid paying $50 to get something shipped from the US :) I'm not too bothered about the weight of the sleeve.

EDIT: Something like this would be perfect, but I'd prefer it to be shipped from the UK:
