    With the exposed side.... I could never put that in my knapsack, otherwise you are just inviting dirt and dust to get into it. Depends on your use of it though...

    If you just carry it in your hands, then hopefully you never grab the wrong side and have it slide out onto the floor.

    I bought one. I think I'm going to return it. It's a nicely made product and all, but I also picked up a Macally AirShell and I'm keeping that! No sliding in and out of sleeves, fits very snugly and to my liking hides the glowing Apple logo on the lid. Three weeks and I'm very satisfied with it.:)...and no heat issues.

    I have been using this case for more than a month and I'm very pleased with it. Offer excellent protection and keeps it thin for slotting into my bag or just carrying it around by hand. Worth the $35 IMHO.

    The incase sleeve is garbage... wait until you struggle for five minutes putting your computer in the case and you'll return it.

    incase

    the incase is the one I have and just like in the youtube video it's simple, fast and nice and snug so it doesn't obviate the reason for buying the MBA in the first place.
    if it takes you 5 minutes 'struggling' to get in and out of maybe you shouldn't be using an MBA and stick to a desktop instead.

    In my eyes the Crumpler sleeves are far and away the best:

    Hey man, you still liking the Airshell? Can you post some pics up?

    I'm seeing them on sale, and out of the leather shells, they look the nicest.. without an ugly square cut out around the Apple logo....

    I think you have bigger problems than the InCase sleeve, my friend...

    For real.. I can't understand how someone could find the Incase difficult to use. He probably was the kid in kindergarten that tried to put the circle in the square.

    I have the case and it couldn't be more simple to use.

    It's an REI case, they're housebrand and found in their laptop section.
