View Full Version : Need Sleeve for 12" PowerBook

Aug 7, 2003, 10:49 AM
Hey guys. I just switched from Dell to the 12" G4 PowerBook, which I love, but I'm in need of a good laptop sleeve. I'm going to college in a few weeks, and I want to be able to lug around the PB and throw it in my backpack without banging it up, etc. I've been looking into the Timbuk2 sleeve, but I haven't made up my mind. Any advice?

Waterfield makes a good sleeve, from what I've read. Also some nice cases... I have a Marware Sportsuit, that really isn't much more than a sleevecase, it's quite nice and could be used as stand alone as well. Marware also makes a sleeve.

There are a ton of good ones, and I don't know that there is a lot of difference between the ones that make just plain sleeves , usually they all have pretty much the same features (some durable outer covering with some kind of soft, non-scratchy liner). Waterfield does offer options for adding things to the sleeve (flap, D-rings).

Buy from a company you like and I suspect you'll be happy.

I still have the InCase that was the first sleeve/carrying bag made specifically for the 12"PB.

Soft padding, comfy shoulder strap, enough room inside for some paper, and stretchy pockets under the handles for your power block.

want comething stylish?


i was kinda holding out on the new 15" to get one, but since i bought a 17" and a big messenger bag, i don't think i'll be buying one from this cool line.
