    Hi Guys,

    Long time lurker here. I'm looking for some advice on travel bag options for my Retina Macbook Pro 13 (late 2014).

    I've been trying to find a messenger style bag with shoulder strap that fits snugly around the MBP and also has a shoulder strap. Since the silver coating on the laptop is prone to scratches, I'd rather have something that doesn't have a zip for the compartment that holds the MBP.

    Has anyone got any suggestions? The closest I've found is Brenthaven's Collins Sleeve Plus but it's not available in the UK. :(

    Hi, thanks for the reply.

    That's the only reason for not wanting a zip really. I know it technically doesn't have a coating, but the brushed metal does seem to get scratched easily. I've only had it for a week and there's already a hairline scratch on the right side near the SDXC slot. Call me paranoid.

    Thanks for the suggesting Timbuk2. I'll take a look but they do seem a bit pricey...
