Loose fit and zero drop protection
on 29 December 2013
The case is made from a floppy material similar to a wetsuit with a similarly unpleasant strong smell. The padding is quite soft and whilst will no doubt protects the laptop from scratches, it offers zero drop protection. The velcro is a great for avoiding scratches, but it's worth noting it makes a loud ripping noise when opening and this may be of issue to those who open their laptops in quiet lectures/libraries/meetings etc. In terms of fit this design is particularly loose even on a non-retina macbook pro; on the retina macbook pro it's loose enough to fit two of them. Overall, it adds a lot of bulk to your laptop and the whole package seems over-sized. It is, however, fairly well made.
I can't recommend this for everyday use versus other brands and designs out there - particularly the larobe - but there is one positive; the loose fit plus the extra pocket means I can no only fit my macbook, but my iPad and a spare keyboard - ideal for airport security.
