    I'm looking for a sleeve for my new Retina MBP. First I can't seem to find any that are made for the Retina model (all the them are just MBP cases that they say are compatible with the Retina model...). Also I want something that doesn't have zippers, for my 13" MBA I have one that looks like this: http://www.amazon.com/Incase-Neoprene-Sleeve-Macbook-11-Inch/dp/B004J19IPE

    Is there anything like that for the 15"?

    I think you might be best waiting a little while for more cases to come out that are 'designed for retina'

    if you have the money I would spend it on waterfields sleeves from sfbags.com I already use one for my Air and I just order one for my RMBP. They might not be the prettiest sleeves and they cost about 30% more then some other brands but they are the thinnest with the most protection I have ever use and I've been though dozens from my other macbook days.

    Wow yikes, that is pricey. I don't do leather so accessories are generally cheaper, I just have to search around for them.

    WaterField is the best! Very well made. I have review posted if anyone is thinking of buying.

    WaterField

    I do adore the WaterField gear as well... Their stuff is top notch! I'd gotten one of their sleeves for a PowerBook G4 12" back in the day - it was great.

    I really dig the HardCase and CitySlicker cases (not a sleeve), but they're pretty pricey.

    Nice sleeve. I'm looking at this one too. Did you go with the vertical or horizontal orientation? I use a backpack, so I'm thinking vertical is the way to go for me. Does it matter?

    I decided to go with the horizontal orientation since I will mostly be just carrying it around under my arm, I figured the vertical orientation would be awkward in this regard.

    I got an email from them a few days ago to let me know they received their rMBP and were going to do some sizing and get them going out the door - very nice customer service touch imo.

    the guys at easy seem to be slapping a 'for retina' sticker on their normal stock...

    I'm waiting for one that fits retina and nothing else..
