Best Looking/Nicest MacBook 13.3 sleeve

ok i need some suggestions on a macbook sleeve/case.

I do not want to spend a lot of money, i use to have the "Incase" black w/ interior lime green sleeve for my iBook and it was pretty nice. But now i need something along those lines, any suggestions are welcome.

please provide some links/websites where to go to! thanks people.

current owners of macbook/macbook sleeves are preferred!

I recommend the ACME MADE bags. I have a "Slim Cargo - gray flannel" for my MBP.

They offer the "Slim" & the "Slim Cargo" which is more bag like w/extra compartments. They are pricey if you opt for any of the designer fabrics but the black ballistic nylon isn't too unreasonable albeit a little higher than some other options, but it is overall a great bag & value.

Edit: OOPS they can be found at www.acmemade.com

they're very expensive, but very sleek.

Why not just get another Incase? Those are great IMO.

Yeah I really like the Incases as well- not too flashy, and when it's zipped up you can't even see the lime green :-)

Plus it prevents you from advertising that you have a notebook on you.

It's an Australian store, but shipping to Ireland was cheap. I have the red cord macbook pro sleeve and I'm very happy. There are some pretty wacky ones on the site, but all seem to be made from quality material.

I love sleeves from WaterField Designs (www.sfbags.com). Their bags are highly customizable; the MacBook sleeve can run you anywhere from $39 (sleeve-only) to $109 (Sleeve+suspension strap+piggyback+flap=full lightweight case). They come highly recommended from many people online.

They definitely feel more durable than the InCases that I have seen in the Apple store.

I'm cm's from buying a Waterfield MacBook sleeve, but I'm wanting to know how padded it is. A lot of sleeves seem to flimsy to me. I'm going to be carrying my MB in an existing backpack that is usually loaded with books and papers, so I want something that is going to be affordable (which the Waterfield is only just) and durable. The config I was thinking of was everything aside from the strap (since I have more than enough straps lying around). Do you think the Waterfield will work?

Thanks!

My search for a laptop bag for my Macbook Pro 13" is endless! It's either I'm being picky or the ones I like are too expensive :T
