    Forgive the noob here, I spent some time searching to no avail, but can I use both a sleeve/case AND a hardshell with my MBP?

    I was looking at the Incase Hardshell for my 15" but would also like something to carry it around in (like this one http://store.apple.com/us/product/T...fnode=MTY1NDA2Ng&mco=MTA4MjU1ODM&s=topSellers)

    I have 2 young (1 year and 3.5 year old) kids and travel for for work once a week, so I need as much protection as I can get.

    Thanks :cool:

    The only potential issue with using both, is that the sleeve may not be large enough to accommodate the MBP and the hardshell.

    That's my concern and why I asked. I was looking for someone who might use a sleeve and hardcase already who could show me a good combo. Thanks!

    All of the sleeves I've seen are made so that its a snug fit.

    I would get something like the Zagg invisible shield for it if you're using a case or sleeve too. The case can protect it from dents, and the invisible shield will protect is from scratches.

    i used a neoprene sleeve with my incase hardshell around my MBP. there was absolutely no problem. If the sleeve were made of some other material like leather, i could see it being a problem, but not with neoprene.

    incase hardshell and incase neoprene sleeve fits okay? i LOVE my purple neoprene (but might return it because want a incase hardshell too). bcuz i dont want to be struggling with it in class taking it on and off.

    i tried with speck satin seethru and neoprene..kind of difficult. and im not a fan of speck..

    anybody know of any good sleeves that will be easy for the hardshell to easily slide in/out?

    It ain't cheap at $70 a whack, but the Tom Bihn cases are FANTASTIC. They open more than a sleeve does, but they're roughly the same size, and have enough "flex" to accommodate a hardshell as well.

    Speck tuckPack + speck case. The tuckpack was designed for the speck case.
