    Hey

    I'm looking for a sleeve for my new 17" MBP!

    I'm thinking about something without zipper and a nice tight fit. And of course it should be gorgeous to look at :rolleyes:

    Any recommandations? Thanks!

    thanks for your posts!

    i've already seen the foofbags....i really like the idea but they seem to be a bit on the bulky side for a 17".....the look pretty thick padded so the big mac will be quite a fat package to hold.......would you agree?

    i really like the style of those hard graft bags, but pricewise they are a bit on the high side.........

    i'm getting the impression that it is rather difficult to find something really really nice for the 17-incher, it's easier for the smaller models somehow....

    I've used these for years and I love them. Most of the time I just have the sleeve case in my backpack, but if I need to go to another building for meeting I just pull it out and it's another case since I got the flap and the D-rings/Strap. A+ fit/finish/materials.

    I've also been looking into cases for my future 17" MPB (still saving up)...

    My favouite so far ist the Moshi Codex 17 in silver (also available in black).
    It's a little pricy, but looks really sturdy and I love the simple design.

    Second place (and much cheper) goes to the "Stealth Laptop Sleeve (Postal Envelope Bag).

    Another fun option are these Anti-Theft Macbook Sleeves. However, they don't seem to have any flap for closing. A deal-breaker for me...

    Further 17" bags/sleeves I'm considering:
    BOOQ Vyper XL2
    be-ez
    Mareware Sportfolio
    Timbuk2 Bags
