    I like the incipio sleeve available online. Nice look and feel, protective and very slim. Not real leather though.

    knomo leather sleeve. A little pricey, but beautiful, well made and good protection.

    The Acme Made sleeve is one of the best around, I got one for my 13" and one for my wife's 11"...its padded, slim, and has stiff sides which protect the computer very well. Not to mention a strap to hold everything together....I put my comp in this sleeve and in my bag every time I go anywhere....

    Here is an amazon link to it:

    Thank you!
    I have to choose between the three sleeves that apple offers online.So if you had to choose what will you go for? Timbak2, Acme or Thule?
    Is that an option to buy the incase Neoprine case for macbook pro and put the Air inside it? will it protect it?

    I'd suggest buying the case for the air not the pro otherwise it might bobble about.

    I'm going to buy for the knomo sleeve too, I have their 10" bungo messenger bag which has been battered for a year since buying my first iPad and looks as good as the day I got it. Customer service excellent and husbands bigger kilkenny also looks pristing. I'm guessing you're not in the uk as they have these online and instore. If the sleeve was bed sized, you'd climb in and nod off straight away!

    Incase makes a slip sleeve for the air. It's what I'm planning on buying for mine.

    DO NOT get anything that has a zipper if you can avoid it. Case makers are getting better with this, but more often than not, the metal teeth of the zipper end up scratching your computer before you do.

    EDIT: link for 11"
