    I'm going to be getting the 15" macbook pro in august for college. I wanted a very protective case since I'll be carrying it from my dorm to classes and the library. I would like to be able to fit my case into this tote bag.

    Do you have any recommendations for the best protective case that would go inside that bag?
    Thanks

    Thanks everyone. I'm thinking of getting the one above or the Tom Binh case - both would protect it well?

    checkout www.colcasac.com, I like them better than neoprene and they are very durable and protective. Might be a bit more aesthetically pleasing too.

    measure ur tote bag length wise and let me know the length so i can let u know if it will fit

    regardless you should get atleast a sleeve for your macbook as it will keep everything eles in ur tote bag from scuffing or damaging ur macbook

    i recoemnd the incase neoprene sleeve plus. its simple, slim and has a fully lined faux fur interior to protect ur macbook.

    i made a video on it, sub if you like lol

    it should fit it with the tote bag, depending on how big ur bag is though.

    the other thing u can consider is a hardshell case made by speck or incase. but, id recoemnd the sleeve over the hardshell as the sleeve is easier to use and more convieninet. i made a vid on the incase hardshell on my channel if ur interested in that.

    hope this helps!

    Thanks everyone! I found a case I really like: the Brenthaven Metrolite. That's what I'm getting!
