I handle my 13" Air somewhat rough (tossing it on the table, shoving it in my backpack full of stuff, tossing the backpack) when it's in the sleeve and it's been great so far.
+1 for Waterfield....have use them on several laptops...always great sleeves..

I came across these Chinao Sleeves which I really like:


Seems to be what im looking for.. does anyone know about these cases?

How well would it protect my air?

I noticed it uses a magnet to keep the case secure.. is this a bad idea for a sleeve?

I bought one of these cases (chinao) from the USA - I am in the UK and it is nice, but not for me. I also got a speck sleeve and I think I am sticking with that.

In fact I have it for sale on ebay if you are in the UK. I paid more for shipping and import duty than the sleeve which was a pain but now I just want to try and recover less than half my costs if someone is interested. Search and you will find it.

Also I retract my statement on this thread about the incipio feather. I wrote it while on order from amazon and now it is going back. First off, once on, a real amount of trouble to get off!

Second I kind of felt it added just that little bt too much weight to make the air as light as it is and also it looked okay from a distance but not as special as the air itself when just left alone!

I had my heart set on the Booq Vyper but you can't carry the power adapter in the case, and it's kind of bulky. Ended up going with the STM Jacket

i've got an 11". i have a speck hard case. it is brilliant, adds very little bulk or weight, and looks gorgeous (clear).

i doubt that i will be getting a sleeve. i usually just go to campus with my ipad, but when i bring my mba along, i carry it in my man bag. it seems pretty secure to me.
