    EDIT: Nevermind, saw there's already a thread for this, my bad.

    I'm looking for a beautiful sleeve to accompany my new rMB as soon as it gets here.

    My favorite so far: the felt sleeves by Byrd & Belle

    If you have come across any other nice sleeves, be sure to post them here.

    Isn't it light enough to carry naked everywhere? Seems like the first notebook that I would just carry around like an iPad. If I'm paying that much for extreme portability, a sleeve just seems like a hassle.

    Agreed, but the sleeve I posted doesn't seem to add much bulk/weight
    + has the added benefit that you can use the pouches to store your USB-C dongle & charger cable ;)

    Some people similarly agonize over sleeves for their iPads :)

    For me, it's more about protection when throwing the MacBook into a bag with other sharp or rigid objects. I don't care about skins, screen protectors, or anything like that, but if I'm packing the device, I want it to be protected.

    I only use an Acme Made sleeve in my bag to add some protection.
    And covered with Best Skins ever matte.
    For me, no point in carrying in the sleeve - won't provide much drop protection.

    My cousin prefers the greater protection of the Incase TENSAERLITE and goes without a skin.

    Cases are for losers :D

    I'm going commando, as I have with all my iPhones for years.

    even your iPhone 6? Those are made to have cases imo. The leather ones from Apple are the hotness.

    Never owned a case. Never scratched or dropped my phone. I guess I'm just not a careless slob like most people.

    I use my phones naked, but they are in my pocket. I guess I just like the added protection a case provides.

    Hey! Easy there! Though I do recall an incident way back that involved my iPhone, a pair of jeans, and a washing machine...
