    Tumi makes quality products, it's like buying a vaja case for the iPhone I spent almost 4k on a laptop a 130.00 case doesn't seem like much

    It doesn't look like it provides much in the way of protection, but I'm just judging from the pictures.

    Maybe post a review?

    I think my $15 Incase sleeve does the same thing

    I got a "Second Skin" from Tucano. $20. Fits perfectly and has a nice pocket that protects the rMBP from the zipper.

    The product posted by the O.P. looks to be pretty high-quality leather which is why it's so expensive. If you aren't into real leather, there's no reason to spend that much. :)

    You are correct on the laptop to case ratio - a premium product like a MBP deserves a good case - but I still don't see the quality/value in your chosen sleeve :(

    I'll put some nice pics up to each his own but I like tumi as a brand and love this case, it's mainly for stylish transportation but its defiantly eye catching I assure you

    ----------

    Perhaps show me one nicer then I don't mind having two.

    Pretty ugly.

    Regardless if it's leather.

    You can get really nice messenger bags for $200-400, you're better off investing into that. You can also carry books, etc. in those things. Sleeves are useless. I have a neopreen and never use it. I just use my messenger bag (saving some money to get a really good one).

    Already have a nice carry brief from Montblanc, I was looking at their leather sleeves but they are upwards of 700.

    I like the Puma sleeves you can get in the Apple Store. The neoprene is thicker than the other sleeves I tried. It makes a great container for rMBP.

    My Picasolab leather case is similar in price (about $30 less) but is open at the top (no zipper). Although, your sides look incredibly flimsy. I like leather cases and you're right, $130 isn't bad when covering your several thousand dollar device.

    Sometimes you can grab a second hand fine tuned leather bag for super cheap.

    I was in Europe for a few months and came by a really really amazing second hand bag and my laptop fit perfectly. Only €80. I did some resesarch afterwards and these things cost around €300

    Nice bag! I'm a fan of Tumi as well. My personal preference is something slim that that with handles/shoulder straps so it doesn't slip out of my hands (e.g., Incase Sling). Congrats on the Tumi. I like it!

    Nice sleeve, OP. I like leather as well, though I can't always afford the best quality.
