    Hey guys,

    Has anyone bought one of these sleeves, and if so, what did you think of the quality and level of protection? Do you find wool/dust getting in the ports/screen with this case?

    I really like the design but am am wondering about the dust issue and the level of protection that it offers :)

    have one that is a year old and the only complaint I have is the white interior looks a bit gross after a while. There have been no issues with the wool/dust/ports/etc.

    I just receive a Zagora 13" mba sleeve today. I'm not happy with it.

    First, I must warn you the photos on the website do not reflect the products' true colors. The Zagora is black with a blue tint, not navy like my MBA's screen showed. It could be that my MBA's screen was not calibrated correctly to display the right shades but their pictures are off as well. The fleece inside is cream white instead of the pure white shown on their photos.

    Second, I'm not 100% happy with the quality. My pocket was sewn on crooked and I have some loose/uncut threads. This would be okay if I paid $20 for the case, but for $40 I'm more critical.

    I'm going to email them about an exchange. I hope I won't have to pay for return shipping. :(

    I've used AppleSacs (aka ColcaSacs) for years and very much like them. Good protection in an inconspicuous package. Also they feel much better in my hands than plastic cases.

    I got a zagora case when i was in the US on holiday and couldn't be happier with it. I much prefer these cases to the standard sleeves. I like that they're a bit different and the soft inner lining is much nicer than a standard neoprene case

    Before the arrival of my MacBook Air 13, I ordered a Zagora sleeve and I need to say that it is a great sleeve to carry a new shiny machine around. It is well-made and looks good. I would say: try it!

    I had one of these with my iPad for awhile. I really liked the thing. It had its flaws, but you could definitely tell that it was hand sewn. Agree with above posters that the inside can get a little grungy though.
