Good cases (not sleeves) for 13" MBA?

It seems there are a lot of sleeves (without handles) out there, and most of the threads here focus on those. Also, most of them seem to be for the 11.6" model. I'm interested in learning more about CASES (with handles and a removable shoulder strap) designed for the 13" Air. Most of the nice cases I've found researching the Internet are for the 13" MacBook Pro and might work for the Air but probably wouldn't provide the nice snug fit that I want. Does anyone know about a good case for the 13" Air?

Tom Bihn has a great bag called the Ristretto. It's built for the 13 MBA, Lenovo x300, etc. and the MBA fits perfectly in the laptop slot - http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/200/TB0223 It is on backorder right now but is shipping out later this month according to their site.

The other very nice bag is the Muzetto by Waterfield Bags but you would need to add their sleevecase to the order to have a perfect fit for the MBA as the Muzetto doesn't have a built-in laptop compartment - http://sfbags.com/products/muzetto/muzetto.htm

How about the SleeveCase from SF Bags? Add the "flap" and "strap" option and you have a nice slim case that compliments the Air while still offering protection. There is a pocket on the back of the case or you can add the "pouch" option if you need more storage. Mine has worked out perfectly

I bought this for my 13" MBP from Apple, and now use it for my 11"... it's a great case to carry some files and the MBA... doesn't hold much more. From a style perspective it's HOT ! For overall usability not amazing, but it's got both of my thumbs-up!

I just got my 13" Ristretto today... It's an absolutely awesome bag if you need something that's about the same footprint as the 13" MBA, but also capable of carrying additional stuff comfortably.
