I got this sleeve from http://foofshop.com/ and put it to use before reviewing, as It is intended for use and wear. I wanted to see how it held up before reviewing it. The foofbag is now a little flatter, it will come a little more fluffier than this when you order it, and it ships in a tasteful recycled envelope and a reusable plastic bag. Foofbags are ethically handmade, and co2 free which scored about a thousand and two cookies while I was in the market for macbook sleeves The foofbag held beautifully as I took it to school everyday and used it as a place mat for the laptop wherever I go. The only maintenance -quite a minor one at that- was to align the lining every other week or so, so that it doesn't bulge in the bottom. I heard concerns about the sheeplike lining shedding it's wool; I say bollocks, It never shed a single thread. And since it's reversible, it's easy to clean if it ever get's dirty. I have the tsunami pattern, they now have a new koe pattern which Im thinking of buying for a new macbook pro. I highly recommend their products and their customer support.
