    Just got my Moshi clearguard for my 2016 MacBook. It is listed as for the 2015 but fits the keyboard perfectly. I had previously used a Moshi on my now departed 2014 13 inch rMBP. It saved my keyboard from a few coffee spills, jam, and many thousands of sesame seeds!!

    Maybe just dont eat or drink near it. The keyboard is low profile enough. Iono how a clear cover would actually work well. Any pix? Does it slide?

    It is incredibly thin and fits perfectly. Doesn't move around at all. Not cheap but it is very well made and the feel on the keys is almost the same as without. I consider it a cheap insurance policy for a very expensive machine.

    I am using the ClearGuard as well and I used cheap silicone ones before. This one is definitely the best one to protect the keyboard! And it's nearly invisible and noticeable.

    I am not a fan of these keyboard covers. Because they add to the mass of the keys, it may cause the keys to press up against the screen when its closed and damage the screen.

    This happened to me on my rMBP, what basically happened is there was white looking smudges in some parts of the screen that wouldn't come off. It was from the protector. Never again!

    Luckily, I had an unrelated issue which was fixed under AppleCare not too long after it happened and they replaced the screen while they were at it. If it wasn't for that, it would have driven me crazy!

    I have an ultra clear screen protector installed to solve this problem, so that's no issue for me. Had this problem before, too. But the ClearGuard from Moshi is also made out of another material than the cheap ones.
