    I bought the Bitolithic Sleeve for my MacBook. It's perfect :)

    It is made from the same material as an STM Glove but rather than having a single zipper at the top so you have to stretch it over your MacBook it zips all the way around. Inside is velvet and it fits like a glove without being too tight. It's not too thick so won't add extra bulk inside your bag, but it's strong enough to provide excellent protection to your MacBook.

    For the price you get the sleeve, an additional zippered pouch big enough to carry a portable external hdd and a screen protector that covers the entire top of your MacBook. (Note: previously the screen protector fabric was too thick to close the lid over, this one is thinner and doesn't interfere with the lid closing at all).

    I'll post some pics later if you like. I highly recommend this sleeve.

    $41 to a paypal account? A bit steep / shady...

    Why? They're a legit company, I just bought one of these myself.

    If I didn't think they were legit I wouldn't have posted here.. how insulting!

    I agree, the Waterfield Designs sleeve is excellent and I am very happy with my purchase!

    I went with waterfield for my old MBP. For the MB, I went with a Brenthaven Edge for cheaper and more protection.

    i bought my girlfriend a waterfield for her mbp; for my mbp, i got a tom binh monolith... not bad, a bit bulkier than the waterfield, but does yield a bit more protection. i was more concerned with not scratching the outer casing of the mac. so far so good... somethign about the binh irks me though. 'seems' cheap.

    the only qualms i have with the biolithic and applesleeve(?) cases, is i like vertical loading for a knapsack. both the binh and the waterfield offered that.

    I'll chime in another positive feedback on waterfield designs... I picked up my sleeve there after it was reviewed on arstechnica and haven't looked back. Their customer service is second to none.

    Agreed the Waterfield designs product is first class. I went for the model with the flap. Very practical.
