I bought the iPearl case for my Macbook Pro glossy display. It's a nice color but too smooth. I don't feel secure carrying it from room to room, or setting it on the desk. The Kuzy case advertises a rubberized exterior. If you have any experience with it, does it feel more grabby? Thank you in advance.

Actually, someone wrote me back on Amazon and suggested Speck. He said it stays in place better, and grips, more rubbery. Anyone agree? Thanks.

I heard the Speck picks up more scratches. I just got my Kuzy case in the mail today and I like it so far. Does the job of what I need it to do. I feel its grippy enough for me.

Hey Tee00max, thanks for responding. Does the exterior feel rubberized as advertised? I had a Otterbox Defender case for my iPhone 4 for example, and that silicone skin was wonderfully grippy. It held right onto your hand. Is your Kuzy case somewhat like that?

Yeah it has a slight rubbery feel, Im trying to think of what it feels like...Have you ever had a hard case for a cell phone that was a matte with that rubbery feel? That exactly what it feels like. I don't feel like its extremely grippy but good enough for what I need it to do.

The kuzy case is plastic not rubber at all. It has an opaque satin coating on the outside that gives the feel of rubber, but there is no rubber on the covers at all. In fact they are very cheap plastic and if you are lucky enough to get one that properly fits your mac, consider it a gift. I had one on my other 2015 13" macbook pro, and it was one hell of a tight fit on the lid of the laptop. The base fit was ok, but the rubber feet quickly started to move off position and it was only a matter of time before they fell off. But for the price its a good bargain if you get one that fits snugly. And their rubber keyboard cover is a godsend for people that eat and drink near or over their macs. It fits perfectly via static, and its a dream to type on. Looks great too, but only transmits some of the backlighting through. Unless you have the keyboard lighting cranked, you won't be able to see it through the cover.

Thank you. Yeah I'm looking for one that grips the table, or even my lap. Are there any such cases? How about Speck? I know they fit better and cost more, but I'm wondering if Speck are grabby enough.

Not sure about the speck. I too would like a truly rubber, hard rubber case for my macbook pro but I have yet to find one. The Kuzy is ok for the money. Ill probably get another for this new one.
