I'm trying to find a decent case which can be easily obtained in the UK. The shipping charges for incase are too high for me, and on the Apple Store Online all of the incase ones are apparently 'too loose' and not the retina version of the case... Amazon is full of junk as usual when looking for cases etc.

So what case/sleeve/bag are you using?

i'm using a sleeve case from Acme Made bought from the store

it's actually made for cMBP so it wont tightly fit to the rMBP

i'm looking for a new sleeve as well

I first saw this in PC World...
Tucano Microfibre Script Second Skin Macbook 15.4" - Grey
Looked nice, came with the additional keyboard cover, but was £30 and I'd still have to find something to put other bit like the power supply in.
Note: Just found it on Amazon for £23.99... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tucano-Microfibre-Script-Second-Macbook/dp/B001MHN110/ref=sr_1_4?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1346140470&sr=1-4

So I bought this to start with...
Staples 16 Pocket Laptop Sleeve
http://www.staples.co.uk/office-supplies/new-office-supplies/16-pocket-laptop-sleeve?r=bf
Super cheap, just to protect my rMBP while I found something better.

I then spotted this in Comet...
Port Designs Marbella Series 15.6 inch Notebook Briefcase - Dark Grey
Not too big, space for the essentials (power lead, USB Hard Drive, HDMI Cable, TB > VGA Adapter, etc... but it was at some silly price, around £50, so didn't bother.

Quick search online when I got home and found it on Amazon...
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004SO8SE4/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00

Works a treat! :)
However, the pocket for the rMBP within the main compartment is a little spaceous as it's not designed for such a slim unit. But the foam insert that was inside the cheap sleeve I bought fits perfectly to pad it out and provide extra protection :)

Two sleeves that fit perfectly for my rMBP, Incase Neoprene Slim Sleeve followed by Incipio Selvage Denim Sleeve. I also use a Wrapsol skin protector and Kuzy case for extra protection.

Still waiting on a thule gauntlet that is made for the retina. I want a rigid sleeve, not a neoprene one, any suggestions people?

I have an iCarbons skin on mine, I think it looks beautiful with the skin on. I actually prefer the look of the computer with the skin on.

I'm using a ColcaSac. If you order two sleeves (bringing the order to $80), UK shipping is free so it might be something to consider doing along with a friend.

It's a nice idea but I don't have a friend to do it with.

I'm trying to decide between this and this. Both a very similar price and the latter is made for the rMBP so I imagine will fit it better, but I prefer the material and look on the first. Anyone had experience with either, especially the first one? Does it matter that it'll be a bit big for the rMBP or is it still snug?

Hi, I have the second one, the RainSuit since I will carry my MBPr on a Eastpak bag and on Winter this sleeve can protect my MBPr from the rain.

Using the exact same case. Perfect, and I highly recommend it.

I'm in the market for the same sleeve. Mind sharing your thoughts and/or pictures when you receive yours? Thanks in advance.
