    What are your thoughts on this "sleeve/messenger bag'ish thing"?

    Both pros and cons will be appreciated :)

    I will have to use the bag at my high school. When traveling to school it'll be in a Hägloff quality backpack, but when i have to switch classes 4 times a day, it gets pretty annoying to pack my laptop into both a sleeve and a full backpack. It's a lot easier to carry around in a bag like the InCase one.

    If you think the InCase suck, i would appreciate an alternative to this one..

    Please help me out guys =)

    - Have a nice day, Mojoz

    Speck Pixelsleeve

    I have the Speck Pixelsleeve and I love it! The flap that opens is on the side, and has a band that keeps the laptop from sliding out if the sleeve is unzipped. I think its like 28 on amazon and 35 directly from the speck website.

    When I bought my Black MacBook, I purchased that case but the 15 inch version since Best Buy didn't have a 13 inch case, and I liked it. It wasn't the exact same case, since Incase has changed the design of them a couple of times, but it looked very similar.

    I ended up eventually going for a sleeve though, since I found it more convenient to simply pack it inside my backpack instead of carrying a backpack and another case on my shoulder.

    Go with the Tucano Second Skin sleeve. Its a lot cheaper. That bag you posted is $60 You could buy a new messenger bag for that much from Timbuk2 that will last a lot longer. Tucano Second Skin sleeve feels a lot nicer than Incase. There is a zipper protection so that it doesn't scrape your Mac.

    I carry mine in the Tucano Second Skin. And put it inside one of Timbuk2 bags.
