I'm looking for a sleeve to protect my Macbook when it's in my backpack that fits the Macbook just right and isn't bulky... I've searched around a bit but haven't found anything that looks too great. Any tips? Oh, a vertical sleeve would be preferable.

I just bought a Tucano sleeve for my MacBook from the local London Drug for about the same price, very nice case, worth the price IMO. I looked on ebay first and found similar sleeves for around the same price after shipping and brokerage.

I just got my sleeve from sfbags.com. They have great products and they are made in CA, not in China. Also, they ship wicked fast.

I dont know but im using a Sony Vaio case. it works great and it comes with a power adapter case. it works fine with the macbook and protects it enough for me to keep it in my backpack.

i just bought a case-mate glovez sleeve. picked it cause its velchro, heard zippered sleeves, if improperly designed, can scratch up the corners and sides. i havent gotten it to say how much i like it, but it looks like a good case. got it at drbott.com i got the black one.

I have a Tom Bihn horizontal and it's a quality sleeve. It's thick and definitely protects my Macbook when I put it in my duffel or backpack. They also have a vertical one.

Also the good thing about the Tom Bihn is that they use a velcro flap rather than zippers, so you won't have to worry about scratching it when zipping up your sleeve!

Hope this helps.

I just picked this up, the InCase Nylon Sleeve. It is a a much better option then their Neoprene Sleeve. I can fit my PDA, Logitech Mouse, and iPod into its little pockets and the thing stays amazingly streamline. I specifically did not want a huge, bulky, and ugly black laptop case.
