    DELIGHTED with my 13" uMBP purchase. Help me choose a sleeve. I intend to carry it in a backpack for light use or a hard box for road trips. Both need some kind of cushioned liner sleeve.

    OPTION A: CaseLogic sleeve. Economic (@$20usd), pocket for power cable. Zipper pro or con?

    OPTION B: Speck Tuck (@$35usd). Has pocket and nice lining, but looks bulky for putting in a backpack. Does have straps for carrying alone, but they remind me of seatbelts.

    OPTION C: Black corduroy Foof sleeve, sherpa lining (@$40usd). Fits snug, can remove from backpack without removing entire sleeve. Cool but pricey.

    Opinions?


    EDIT: Follow up: I got the Speck Tuck pack and love it!

    Waterfield Sleeves, best purchase I've made, bought it for my old white MB about 3 years ago, the uMBP fits snugly in it.

    I love it. Cheap also, but probably cheap in quality.
