    I bought a Speck SeeThru Hard Case for my MacBook Pro and I love it. Not only does it have style points (i.e., red color), I feel so much better when i hold it with one hand.

    That said, there are enough openings in the case that I don't feel that comfortable putting it in my backpack as it is. Any suggestions on a sleeve that would fit a MBP with the Speck Case?

    i have mine in an incase sleeve, the one with the handles. it's a REALLY tight squeeze but it gets in there. i have a timbuk2 backpack as well and it fits better in there.

    By the way, I don't mind if the sleeve looks ghetto. I just want it to completely cover my mbp (with speck case) while in my backpack.

    Tom Bihn should work

    I have a Tom Bihn sleeve for my mbp. I haven't purchased the speck yet as I am waiting for their c2d model to come out, but customer service at Tom Bihn said there shouldn't be a problem with having the spec cover on and getting the mbp into the sleeve. The lady I talked to even went to the speck web site to check it out while we were on the phone. She also said if it doesn't fit I can return the Tom Bihn no problem.
    I love the Tom Bihn sleeve (braincell horizontal). I think it offers great protection from the bumbs and jostles my computer experiences in my messenger bag.

    So. Is there anyone else with experience with using a sleeve for an MBP with a Speck Shell?

    I have the speck shell see thru case (Red) and use a Booq Viper case.

    They fit perfectly and I am now happy to place this in my backpack.

    How tight is the fit? I used to have a booq vyper for my old powerbook, and the fit was pretty tight with just the poewrbook.
