    So I have the new MBA13, I've previously had a MBP15 as well.

    I've looked around at cases for ages and have seen all of the popular ones listed a load of times. This is the reason I've started a new thread on the matter - I want something that is either new and exciting or something that isn't really well known at the moment.

    I'd preferably want a case and a sleeve.

    Anyone got any suggestions? :)

    My sleeve of choice

    I bought an Untype case here. I recommend the all felt or felt with leather in charcoal or grey.

    They have a coupon code: "Summer11".

    Mine is the 13 inch merino wool charcoal + leather strap.

    Pros: very durable, thin/light, looks amazing with the MBA
    Cons: expensive

    I put my 13 inch into the sleeve and then into my messenger bag and it's held up quite well.

    The leather strap one is the mad note. Good call.

    Thanks for all of your suggestions, I've had a look at the Bookbook, not sure it's my cup of tea - I notice they have it in stock here: http://www.gearzap.com/twelve-south-bookbook-macbook-air-13-leather-case.html for whoever it was looking for one!

    I like the Colcasac quite a lot, and also the Wrappers sleeves. I was hoping for some form fitting products like Speck but maybe a bit more unique...but guess I'll go for a sleeve if no-one knows of any. I've seen Incipio and Hard Candy but seem just like a more expensive version of the Speck SeeThru IMO.

    Just ordered the same. How good does the MBA fit into it? Could you send me some pictures?
