    I've been reading some old threads on MacBook Air Sleeves but I still can't find what I'm looking for.

    I wan't something like this;

    But not as expensive and available in the UK.

    I just want a plain sleeve type case without a zip. I don't mind if my MacBook is a little exposed.

    Can anyone recommend me anything?

    I have a crumpler the fug sleeve. It is pretty slim while still providing some cushion and no zipper. If you use this with another larger bag I think its perfect.

    Not sure about the UK availability but I have an Acme Made Skinny sleeve and rather like it.

    Probably not what you're looking for, but I really like this sleeve:

    I was after something cheap and simple after my old sleeve needed replacing, and bought it just because I needed a sleeve/case quickly - I didn't think I'd be very impressed, but for £10 did it anyway. 4/5 months down the line and I'm really pleased with it, well made and looks pretty slick.

    I have the Rainsuit sleeve from Cool Bananas and am fully satisfied. It's the old version with no zipper, the Rainsuit P2 has got one.

    Don't know about UK availability though

    Moshi Muse rocks! One of the finest sleeve you can buy in terms of quality of material and fit and finish.

    Except they don't!! The zip never comes close to the laptop, first image shows this better and even if it did the zips plastic so won't mark the aluminium anyway.

    Mine's been in and out of this case several times a day for over two years without a single scratch.

    I have this case, it's the best case I've used by far. It somehow protects really well and the zip does not scratch it at all. The case is the perfect size, other cases like the incase pictured about with no zip are too snug. If the case is too snug it makes it difficult to get the mba in and out.

    I second this. InCase sleeves are quite nice for a cheapie sleeve. I have one that I use as a spare on the rare occasion I don't have my Waterfield sleeve.

    I bought the Côte&Ciel 13" Zip Sleeve from the Apple Store. Fit is really nice, and has good protection to avoid the zips scratching the device.

    Has anyone tried the cheapo envelope looking fake leather sleeves you get on ebay and amazon?

    If you can find one, the Incipio Orion sleeve is worth a look ... nice looking, inexpensive, and usually to be found in something approaching a neutral color. It leaves a bit of the laptop exposed so you can withdraw the MBA with your fingers, but that's probably the only drawback.

    I have used the 11" Acme sleeve and was disappointed to find that it left rather unsightly black smudges on my Wrapsol. I'd recommend the Acme products only if you have no "skin" on your MBA.
