It's just a big hunk of 1st class leather with great stitching....I like it....Expensive, but ok with me.....

Looks really good. How snug is the fit?
Just ordered the 11 inch so researching away!

Nice. Just got a 11" as well so currently researching like HstephenG !

How stiff is the leather? Is it difficult to quick insert/extract the Air? My understanding is that Saddleback extend the life of their products by not selling them already soft. So they start out quite stiff and slowly soften over time.

Looks nice. The Picaso Lab guy that sells on eBay has similar nicely made sleeves. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/MONOGRAM-Macbook-Air-11-FULL-CASE-w-SOLID-EDGE-TECH-BROWN-RED-179-/170830966653?pt=US_Laptop_Cases_Bags&hash=item27c651af7d#ht_5230wt_1025

Correct...it is very stiff but the cut is perfect...it is snug to pull it out, but it is very minimal effort...

Yep, they are amazing. I posted this on a couple other threads as other were interested in how they are. Here is my review of it. http://www.twentysomethinglondon.com/picaso-labs/

I love my Saddleback Leather sleeve as well. I am a huge fan of their leather, my 15" MB Pro rides to and from work in one of their thin briefcases, and their large gadget sleeve is perfect for my iPad Mini.
