    looking for a slim, protective, simple, minimalist sleeve, and these two seem to fit the category best, but which one is better?

    They seem pretty identical... but the second skin has the 'pocketting'... is the incase neoprene plus better in any way???

    feel free to suggest others, but keep my preference in mind... no handles, need zippers, <$40, and as stated as above.... but i do need input on these two as well...

    Thanks!!!

    EDIT: Removed Incase and now considering caselogic, please scroll down :)

    Neither one is better than the other. The Tucano is probably a higher-quality product, but I've owned an Incase for years and it's been fine. I actually find the Tucano to be a bit awkward to get on since it's so tight-fitting; a negative when you have to take it out to put it through the airport scanner :(

    Yes, the Incase neoprene is, go buy one.


    Anyways, after some looking around... it seems like protection wise, Incase > Second Skin Elements > Second skin Microfiber?

    Is that correct? is it by a lot to the point where i should just get the incase?

    I bought the be.ez sleeve and loves it. Memory foam gives it a little "shock proof" protection and macbook pro slides right in really easily.

    Not sure if you can swim with it, but it will protect your laptop from heavy rain (Water column >5,000 mm)

    Whatever protection you get, be carefull of temperature differences creating moisture inside.

    Tucano has the protective lip that goes around the edge of the machine to protect it from the zipper. This lip is very well designed and serves it's purpose very very well. It is also considerably lighter than the incase and the incase won't guarantee the zipper never makes contact with your machine. For me it's a no brainer. The Incase is a vastly inferior product.

    Isnt the incase more protective? shock-wise? the Tucano seems really thin and doesnt offer much protection at all... this is talking more than scratches; bumps and slight drops...

    Any input on the CaseLogic?

    I wouldn't want to drop my laptop in either to be honest. But I currently use the Tucano in the Incase nlyon case so I'm not worried about shock too much. I really don't think the Incase sleeve is going to help you much in a drop vs the Tucano. For that you need to look at something like the the Tom Bihn Braincells.

    i wouldnt want to drop it either... but i want to prepare for the worst case... minimal damage

    so if they offer pretty much the same protection... wouldnt the case logic be best since it has a neat little bag?

    +1. Spot on. The fit is flawless. I've had both. Tucano wins all the way around. Superior sleeve.

    Yea, ruled out the Incase; now its between Tucano and CaseLogic... seems like not much popularity on the CaseLogic here, but everything about it seems good and the reviews elsewhere are good, just not 'specially designed for the MBP'

    Recently purchase tucano as my first mbp sleeve and it works wonders. I like the front and the back design too.
