    Hi Everyone,

    I'm taking a look around for the best laptop sleeve for my 15" Macbook pro. I was just wondering what you guys though was the best one. I want one that looks good and still protects the computer when I put it in my bag.
    I really like the Vaja Cases (http://www.vajacases.com/) but there a bit too expensive at the moment.
    I was also taking a look at the Knomo bags (https://www.knomobags.com/)
    and
    Toffee sleeves (http://toffeebags.com/?mod=store)
    Has anyone here used any of those brands or would recommend a cool looking and well made sleeve for my MBP? The toffee ones are the most reasonable but are there any other similar ones around?

    Thanks for your help!!!!

    Incase Sleeves

    I swear by Incase sleeves.
    You can get them at the Apple store.

    The Best for your money

    If your looking for a sleeve that will not just protect your notebook from scratches I would highly recommend one of these two:

    Check out the hard sleeve by axio

    http://www.axio-usa.com/

    I'm thinking I am ether going to get that one or the one by Booq which has a sleeve called the viper M2

    http://booqbags.com/

    As for the incase sleeve that apple sells I have heard many arguments that the zipper can scratch the laptop when opening and closing. Do you have that problem jalagl? Or have they fixed that?

    By The way I just ordered my MacBook Pro today (High End 15" model) and have been researching this since last summer.

    Wow those Vaja ones look cool (and very expensive)
    The Toffee sleeves look nice, but not very protective (other than scratches).

    I have a Booq Vyper M2 which is great, and a tweed Foof which is cool for daily scratch protection in my backpack.

    Brenthaven also make decent cases.

    And search the forums, there are dozens of threads like this:
