    I'm curious to see what accessories you guys carry around with your new MacBook? Cases, sleeves, adapters, mice, etc. Whatcha got?

    So far, I only have a few items with me:

    • My simple sleeve that I use to carry around the MacBook so that it doesn't get scratched.
    • USB-C/USB-A thumb drive for transferring documents. I really think this is a smart product, thought somewhat expensive.
    • Apple USB-C to USB-A adapter. No way in hell am I paying $79 for the multi-adapter. I'll wait for a more reasonable option.

    I've got a couple of other products that I'm either deciding if I want to pull the trigger on, or waiting for them to release.

    Here's my before and after laptop bags. This is what I carry with me every day for the commute around to all my clients. The first one is essentially what I'd been carrying around for 4 years prior to the rMB. Of note is that I have found that even with the one port, I still only have two adapters with me, and have gained a USB-A port slot!

    I carry:

    1. USB-A to USB-C cable (from mono-price)
    2. usb wall charger capable of 2.1A (not fast enough to charge rMB when using, but will when it's turned off, perfect when I sleep over at my girlfriend's)
    3. USB-C to USBA dongle (from mono-price)
    4. powerbank

    Literally, I carry the MacBook in a felt sleeve. That's it. Occasionally a solar power bank able to charge the laptop up to 75%, but I rarely have to bring it.

    I like your sleeve. For now I'm using a cheap one until I find the right one. I have the Voltus on order also. As well as the KADi Port.

    Most of the time I just carry the rMB alone. But when traveling for longer than battery life permits I add:
    • Apple 29w USB-C charger and cable
    • Apple Digital AV Adapter (allows charging while connected to HDMI monitor and/or USB 3)
    • Anker 3-Port USB 3.0 HUB with 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Converter and cable (combines with the previous two items to form a pretty good wired docking solution thats light and compact and modular)
    • Apple USB-C to USB 3 adapter (haven't used it but just in case)
    • Sandisk 32gb USB-C/USB-A flash drive
    • Pawtec MacBook 12-Inch Retina Neoprene Sleeve (holds all of the above along with the rMB)
    The best part is that its still lighter than my equivalent 11" MBA setup
