Not many companies offer clear skins for MacBooks compared to the past.
Zagg still offers them if you contact them directly. Unfortunately Zagg only offers glossy film, and as they’ve been doing for the past decade, they’ve continued to price themselves out of the market.
I tried Best Skins Ever, and without question, an amazing product that is virtually invisible on a MacBook. The matte finish matches the Apple finish perfectly.
The customer service for Best Skins Ever is as bad as their product is good, so be prepared to never speak with a human if there was an issue, and you’ll likely wait days for any email response.
As a Zagg customer since their inception, I would recommend the Best Skins Ever product, just beware of the non-existent customer service.

In the past, I have had excellent experience with the best skins ever products. Several 15 MBP and iPads. Last two orders took forever to arrive. The MBP 16 matte skin I received, the top case skin is not a perfect size. Leaves a small margin around the edges. waiting for a reply from BSE.

As of yet, BSE are unresponsive to the size issue of the top skin for the 16" model. I would hold off ordering for the 16" until they get their act together.

The url you have includes the fbi web site. When I use the regular URL, www.bestskinsever.com, their web site is as usual. Still no reply to multiple support tickets regarding their 16” MBP being undersized

Thanks for the reply. I was redirected to the url that included the www.fbi.com, but the redirect was caused by my VPN. Site was fully accessible when the VPN was off. .

I went with the Slickwraps Naked Matte and did a wet install, adding a little heat at the end. I could not find wet install instructions for the skin on Slickwraps but have done enough that I thought I would give it a try. The results are very good.
