    What sleeve do you use for the 15" PB? I'm thinking a sleeve would be more versital than a backpack.
    Thanks.

    Thread #50 for fav PB sleeve and counting...

    The one by Radtech is by far the sleekest. But that's just me. I hate plastic wrappers.

    Marware

    The Sharkskin sleeve made by Marware (no handles) is a great, high quality product. I highly reccomend it.

    timbuk2.com makes some kicking bags. . . extremely durrable and extremely simple if you only need a laptop sleeve to fit into something else. i use one with my timbuk2 messenger bag and it works great! i can even stick the sleve in something else, like a backpack or suitcase when i travel. it will probably last longer than your laptop! mine has already outlasted my iBook and is working on protecting my PB right now.

    Waterfield's SleeveCase has served my 15" well.

    Waterfield

    Only thing I wish is that it had a flap that would close over the opening to protect from dust or moisture (my pb goes everywhere).

    I have a Waterfield for my 15" as well. For a little extra, you can order a flap that closes over the opening.

    I have one, and I think it's pretty good. Nice amount of cushioning, fits really well, well made, and looks good. I use it so I can throw my 12"pb into any old bag and not worry. I'd say go for it and buy one. The only caveat is that it's the only sleeve I've owned, so I'm not comparing with others

    I have a Tucano. Very well made. I think that they are water-proof.

    does anyone know where i can find a case that would fit a 12'' powerbook that has the straps at each corner and zips up so i can keep the laptop in the case while i am typing? they usually are not real hard cases and i think someone said theirs was made out of a wetsuit type material. i dont really care what mine is made out of but if anyone can help me out i would be very happy.

    I have the Tom Bihn brain cell. I think it works great as just a sleeve and offers a lot of protection! I would totally recommend it. www.tombihn.com

    I recommend Incase laptop sleeves. Very high quality. I can't link you because their site is down, but Apple carries their products.

    If you want to get a Tucano skin shipped domesticaly, check out outpost.com. Search for tucano and they have multiple kinds to pick from. I plan on getting one for my 12" PB that I just ordered. Hope this helps.

    I have a Booq PowerSleeve12 for my 12'' PB. They also make 15'' and 17'' versions. They are top notch quality and don't charge extra for a flap (that's crazy if you ask me). Check them out here:

    Those are nice. But expensive.
