What is everyone's favorite sleeve for protecting the 2015 rMBP?
I use the Mujjo 13" sleeve and I love it
Acme Made Skinny Sleeve
Sits in my laptop bag and easy to slide in and out.
Probably not enough drop protection by itself, buy OK in my bag.
Found some on eBay at lower prices and sometimes on sale at the local computer store.
Great suggestions so far. I'd also submit the Incase Icon sleeve, which I have been using for a few weeks now. Here are a few of my own observations about this sleeve:
Well made, good build quality
Fits the 13" MBPr like a glove, almost literally (which is generally a good thing, but it can be a bit difficult to remove the MBPr from the sleeve at first until it breaks in a bit)
Provides very good protection for a sleeve, a lot of which is owing to a rubber ring that runs around the perimeter of the sleeve (which, unfortunately also adds a good ~1.5 inches to the width of the MBPr)
Vertically oriented, meaning it loads from the short side of the MBPr (which could be advantageous if you're carrying it in a backpack or other vertically oriented bag, but could be cumbersome if you're carrying it in a briefcase or other horizontally oriented bag)
Expensive (~$70 at the Apple Store)
If you plan to tote your MBPr in a backpack that doesn't have a dedicated laptop compartment (or one that is oversized for a 13" laptop where it tends to flop around a bit during transport), then I think this is an excellent sleeve for that purpose.
EDIT: Perhaps you have seen the sticky thread at the top of this forum that is dedicated to this question? Admittedly, it is over 2,800 posts long at this point, so it's kinda hard to wade through all of it.
I just bought this last week and love it!
+1 for this sleeve. I have one for my 13" rMBP and it is excellent. Perfect for carrying it in my backpack without damage.
Absolutely LOVE this sleeve for my 2014 Macbook Pro Retina
A little pricey but very well protective ...
Best sleeve out there for the money IMHO ...
Thanks for all of the replies. The incase Icon seems like a really nice, protective sleeve. I forgot I bought my dad a cheap vinyl 13" sleeve from Amazon (looks like an envelope). He wasn't using it so ....
Her it is:
Until my bank account recovers from purchasing the machine I'll probably use that one. When I can, I will probably get the incase Icon.
I managed to pick up a Herschel Anchor Sleeve for £5 on eBay (it is only very slightly used). Although I bought it on price, I am pleasantly surprised with the brand and consider it worthy of its normal £30 retail price.
Crumpler sleeves are my favorite for laptops, iPads etc.
It says for MacBook Air only. So is your 13" rMBP fitting in there alright?
Im not 100% sure that's the exact model (b/c I just did a simple search on Amazon ... although I originally purchased it there). However, it was for my dad's MBA 13" ... so I'm going to say yes. Plus, if anything it fits on the large side.
Interesting ... Crumpler has the 13" neoprene pretty cheap. I have used their photography stuff before.
I own one of these and it works great.
I bought this one and it turned out ok. Not too snug.
Can't argue with that price
That one looks nice
I like Joli sleeves http://jolioriginals.com/collections/textured/products/macbook
The joli looks great, but it's pricey!
It's actually not bad for a quality leather case. Some of the other sleeves are neoprene and will cost you $40-60. The leather one will last a long time. Likely outlast the computer. Also now is the time to buy as the dollar to Euro rate is fantastic.
What do you guys think of hardgraft sleeves? I think that they are beautiful and classy, pricey of course , but the zip is the thing that puts me off buying it, it may scratch the Mac and I want a case to protect it from scratches. Any thoughts ?
I bought this for my MBA
and I just tried it for my 13" rMBP. It works great. I like it because I can carry my SuperDrive, external hard drive, charger and cables.
I really like their products too and own some of them. The Zip that's used for the laptop selves is made of plastic and will not leave scratches on a MacBook.
Sounds awesome! Can you post some pictures ?
I got a Thule Sleeve for my new 15"... protects it well.
