    Figured i'd do my first review and try offer something back to the MR community so here goes.

    Firstly their website: http://shop.cushcaseonline.com/shop/

    I'll be honest ive never heard of these guys before, I actually stumbled upon their web shop on eBay.

    Their eBay shop: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/CushCase

    I bought this one: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Corduroy-Lapt...cessories_LaptopCasesBags&hash=item563cda3b18

    £9.99 with free P&P

    Features

    * Constructed from quality corduroy and ultra soft fleece.
    * Velcro fastening allows for easy opening and closing.
    * Sandwiched foam layer helps protect your MacBook against bumps and scratches.
    * Incredibly durable for everyday use.
    * Designed specifically to fit the Apple MacBook Pro 13 inch (all versions).
    * Outer Material: Tan Corduroy.
    * Inner Material: Black Fleece.
    * Designed and Made in England.

    The material is nice to touch, the parts are all well made and well put together, a really good quality feel to the fabric and construction. I'll be honest, it cost £9.99, i wasn't expecting much but it feels and fits great.

    I'd like a more elegant solution to sealing it, other than the black velcrow, but i guess i can live with that.

    Here are some photos.

    Black velvet interior, hugs the MB pretty well, can't imagine it scratching at all, its very soft, perfect imo for the inside of a case.

    Pretty stylish, goes inside my carry bag nicely, its closes up sufficiently, not amazing, i mean i dont think its supposed to be a perfectly closing case, its not that sort of style.

    Overall it fits nice and snug, clearly designed for this size MB, its the right width, depth and length.

    Conclusion:


    Very very cheap, really good build quality with a unique look, well constructed and offers good scratch resistance for use within a carry bag. It won't protect it from knocks and bangs, but, of course you guys are careful ;)

    Would i recommend it as a buy? Totally, and even more so from their eBay shop, £9.99 with free delivery, thats pretty damn good.

    :)

    Nice review! Also, that looks like a good case that works either in another comp bag or by itself.
