If they are going to charge a premium for their bags then they should stand behind them better. The way they warranty them now is unacceptable.

I almost ordered a FUG from crumpler, it's quite nice also for a sleeve, i had one for my MBA.

I already have a messenger bag so all i needed was something to stop the laptop from getting scratches when i move it!

Wow the SFBAGS look awesome! Don't forget to review it here once you get it.

I want something to put around the Rmbp full time not a sleeve. Are there any cases like that yet?

Speck cases are what you're looking for, unfortunately they won't have any for the rMBP for at least another month. That's according to their twitter feed.

I noticed Booq's warranty was a bit.....unique. But I figured it was just a front and if an issue occurred, that basic customer service would come into play.

Did you contact Booq about your strap? I would be surprised if they did take any action.

Booq has told me that are working on products for the Retina. I am hoping they release some sleeves first!

15" rMBP sleeve from Colcasac - I just got this and fits around the rMBP perfectly. Very snug fit.
http://www.colcasac.com/macbook-sleeve/

In general, any case made for the regular MBP will fit the rMBP.
Nice find with the Colcsacs - look great and not overpriced - ordered! Use the voucher code "newmbp15" to get 15% off till 29 June.

I haven't had a Mamba but I do own two other Booq sleeves and the quality is top notch! No issues or damage to my MBPs with either one.

I received the Hard Graft felt and leather trim RMPB slip case the other day, its a perfect fit and super classy, offers nice protection and is very discreet, looks like carrying a big document sleeve rather than a laptop

Quality, as you'd hope, is superb. A lovely product. Also got a SF Bags carry case on order for when I'm travelling less lightly

I have the Booq Cobra Courier M:

http://www.booqbags.com/us/all-products/CCRM-BLK

I carry it almost every day with my MBP, soon to be RMBP, charger and 3-4 other documents or files. Since it does have the flap and velcro, I have been able to overfill it and still secure what I put inside. Works well for me!

Beyond the fact that I don't understand why people would want a leather case for such a nice looking machine, why would someone want an open ended sleeve? I guess I worry about dust/dirt/water/whatever.

Someone posted some nice looking ones from etsy but the open end worries me.

I have always had open ended ones, specifically the sfbags sleeve case for all my macbook, macbook airs, and macbook pros. And never had an issue.

For me, it's not a problem because I don't use this as a standalone but use it in conjuction with a backpack, thrown in with my carryon, or in my messenger. There are always other things I need to carry when meeting with clients or when headed into the office anyways.

I wanted something a little more nondescript for airline travel so I bought a Colcasac sleeve. It is pretty awesome and really doesn't look like a laptop cover which is what I wanted. It wraps tightly around the rMBP so that if i even wanted to put it into another sleeve/case, I could.
Just ordered mine

How do you like it?

As in both.

How do you like rickshaw vs colca

I just pop my MBP in it, and I just put it in any bag and I don't have to worry about it.
Just ordered one!
