    I know theres a million threads about sleeves, so all I can say is I looked through many

    basically I'm looking for the 13 MBA equivalent of this for the MBP:


    Something well padded and somewhat rigid so I could throw it in my backpack or briefcase, with a pocket that could hold small stuff (hdmi cable, iphone cord, earbuds)

    anything like that for an air? or would you not be concerned about the extra space in that guy designed for a MBP

    thanks in advance!

    This one from WaterField looks great...seems people that buy it are happy with it. I am thinking of ordering it today, I am currently using a Codi sleeve that came with my bag, fits ok but a little too big for the Air 13. If I get the WF do you guys recommend getting it with the rings, just in case I ever want to use it with strap?

    Planning on getting the horizontal, leather, rings, maybe strap. Seems all reviews are pretty positive with the WF sleeve. Any other opinions (especially in this configuration, with rings, useful or not)?

    I did take a look at those; for $50, not really interested in the nice design.. I'm a little more utilitarian ;)

    Depends on how you'll use it. For me, the sleevecase would always go inside another bag, so I wouldn't put the rings on mine. I do definitely prefer the leather, and horizontal vs. vertical would depend on how I'd carry it or what type of bag I'd put it in.

    That's one of the beauties of Waterfield. Depending on how you'll use it, you can configure the bag to work for you.
