    Can you use that sleeve with the MBP in a hardshell case?

    People actually think that looks good? That is pretty much the worst looking sleeve ever made.

    I used to use both. Since I moved to the Booq Python Pack I no longer have a need or physical room for a sleeve. (I use the Incase Hard Shell)

    People realize that when it comes to solely protecting something, it does not matter.

    MBP 15 Sleeve

    Forget the hype. Buy something made out of memory foam or neoprene off of ebay. there's tons of stuff from HK for quite cheap. I carried my old BlackBook in a $10 neoprene sleeve inside my messenger bag for over 3 yrs. Not a scratch on it. Don't throw the thing off the roof and it will cushion and protect your computer nicely.

    --these cheap sleeves also come in solid colors and don't look absurd like the linked item.

    I use the Contour Re-versible sleeve, it looks great, is made of neoprene so offers some alright protection. Isn't too bulky. It's perfect for me :cool:

    A bit pricey but can be customized pretty well and can stand alone as a laptop bag too: http://www.sfbags.com/products/sleevecases/sleevecases.htm

    My MBA is covered with a Cote et Ciel sleeve but I won't bother linking their site since it seems to have been made into a total flash hell. :rolleyes:

    I use a case logic envelope sleeve. It won't protect my MBP from falling but it protects for scratches. I bought it at Dillard's this past week for $5. I suggest checking it out if that is thf protection you are looking for.

    Booq Vyper is nice! Its what I use on my 17" MBP Uni. Good padding, safe from zipper scratches...etc.

    I bought this for my MBP as a whole if you want a good bag as well:
    http://www.booqbags.com/laptop-backpacks-laptop-bags/17mbp/Python-XLsystem-with-Vyper-XL2

    Using the above items. I traveled from Seattle Washington to Kuwait.....not a single problem or a scratch on my mac. The bag is quite durable as well. I work on C-17's. I have carried this bag around with my David Clark headsets, gloves, water...sunglasses/goggles...ipod...headscarf(for sand storms)...etc. This bag has taken a beating out here on deployment with me. Need to blow off some talc sand and it would still new new.

    I destroyed my bag that I had out here last year with the elements (heat and sand) and usual wear and tear...
