Protects well, fits nicely and airport security don't need the macbook removed from the sleeve to X-ray.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Case Logic PAS-215 15-Inch Macbook Neoprene Sleeve, Black (Personal Computers)
I purchased this sleeve to take my Macbook Pro 15" on long-hual international air travel. I wanted to take the laptop in my wheelie cabin bag, without the need to carry a separate laptop case. But I didn't want my Macbook Pro floating around in my bag unprotected, so this seemed like a good solution.
The best thing about this case is that it seems to meet the airport security requirements, in that I was never requested to remove the laptop from the sleeve when it was being x-rayed. This meant the laptop was protected in the conveyor trays, rather than lying it "naked" in the dirty, gritty trays.
The case has a small pocket on the front which is suitable for carrying small accessories, such as headphones, USB memory sticks, dongles, etc. I wouldn't recommend putting the power supply in this pocket however, as it would easily apply serious pressure to one corner of the laptop should pressure be applied to the width of the sleeve. Also I would suggest if you pack this pocket full of stuff, you may then need to remove the laptop from the sleeve whilst going through x-ray.
The zippers are very good quality, and run smoothly. They have plastic covered toggles making them easy to get hold of.
All in all, I could not have asked for anything more from this sleeve. It fulfilled the purpose I bought it for perfectly, and I returned home, having travelled half way around the world and back, without a single scuff or scrap on my Macbook Pro.
The only usage recommendation I would make is to place the macbook pro into the case, such that the macbook logo on the laptop ends up against the little pin-wheel logo on the case. This means that when the zipper on the sleeve is done up, the zipper ends up over the power/ethernet port area of the laptop. Otherwise the back of the zipper mechanism can leave a little scuff on the edge of the aluminium case when the sleeve is zipped up. At least with the zipper ending up over the ports, it will not leave such a scuff.
Brilliant sleeve, look no further if you want a soft sleeve for your Macbook Pro.
