I don't often review cases etc unless I'm particularly impressed. This case is perfect for a MacBook. Being very "particular" with everything I buy, I don't like settling for something that will just do. I've tried numerous cases for my MacBook and all have them have been ok but lacking somewhere. IE they were either too bulky with plenty of protection or too flimsy. I've tried all price ranges from £10-£100. This is one of the cheapest I've tried, if not THE cheapest. It's perfect for light day to day use and offers fairly good protection when travelling too. If you're prone to dropping your Mac on concrete then this might not be ideal for you but, if you're sensible its going to be all you need. It's lightweight with a nice lining so the felt doesn't shed fluff into the ports. Pocket on the front for phone , notepad and possibly the charger but this might add bulk to it. Simple elastic loop to hold the flap in place too and does the job. No buckles, studs or zips to scuff the Mac which some cases seem to have. Best of all it looks smart and discrete. Other cases scream "MacBook" which I personally don't like. Either that or they have an ugly logo blasted across the front of the case. This has a small tag which you hardly notice. From a distance it could easily be a file for paperwork which should deter MacBook thieves. Adds very little weight to the MacBook too.Overall, a really great case for the average user. If I was going to be harsh I would say it won't offer full drop protection (although it might) but if you drop your Mac on concrete you don't deserve a Mac.

I tried a number of cases trying to get a one that actually fitted my Macbook Pro Retina 13" and finally found this one. So many of the other cases are generic sized allowing the laptop to slide around inside, not this one it's a near perfect fit. The macbook slides in and out easily and I expect you could also fit a hard shell if you wanted.

The felt provides good bump protection and the fleece liner stops any scratches. The elastic band keeps the flap shut but I wouldn't trust it to stop your macbook sliding out if you picked the case up upside down. I'm not sure how well the felt will last but someone has pointed out that felt was used for hats and boots in olden times so perhaps it will do better than I think.

Overall this is a simple but effective case and good value for just over £10.

Overall this product is good. The material is soft and seems durable. Macbook Pro retina 13 fits well (even with the speck hard case)
Very good value for the money, I would say.

Lovely case, the lining is very soft and the padding is good enough to give me a little peace of mind.

That being said, it is ever so slightly small, so that the first couple of times of getting it in and out were challenging to say the least. I ended up needing to pull so hard to get it out that when it finally came out there was so much momentum in it I wacked it into my ribcage and I now have 3 bruised ribs. (Injuries are conditioned on you being an absolute numbnut- don't expect this kind of damage if you aren't very special like me…)

I've given it a good old stretch and it is getting easier with each time I do it. The only reason I am sharing my humiliation is so that you don't buy this thing in the hope of looking all fancy at an important meeting and then have to look like an idiot wrangling with your lovely new laptop case infront of your new boss.

I use this with my 13 inch macbook, and it fits it excellently. It's snug enough that it shouldn't slide out when you don't want it to, but it's not difficult to get in and out. The felt material feels nice, and strikes a nice balance between formality and good looks. I would feel comfortable bringing this case into a business environment. The inside of the case is lined with a microfibre-style cloth, so there is no risk of the sleeve scratching your laptop.

The extra pockets are quite small, and don't really stretch, so they're only really good for storing small or flat items, like screen cleaning cloths (what I store in them), or maybe some headphones. They would not hold a bigger item like a charger without badly (and probably permanently) deforming the sleeve.

The level of protection this case offers is good for preventing scratches (e.g. when carrying the laptop in a bag), but I wouldn't trust it to provide much protection in the event of a drop from any great height. If this is what you need, I recommend you look elsewhere, possibly at hard cases, or ones with more shock protection.

I can't say too much about how this sleeve will hold up in the long term, as I've only got experience of three months of quite light use. However, I haven't seen any signs of stitching failing or other visible wear, so I am optimistic.

Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase, and can thoroughly recommend the product.

What it is -
This is a lightweight, minimalistically designed wallet for a 13" Macbook Pro Retina.
A slim, tailored felt wallet with an elastic retainer over the front. Neoprene feel tight woven felt on the inside, covered in a nice woven felt fabric on the outside... open it up and you have a cushoined, snug space to fit a year 2014 13" Macbook Pro RETINA (the THINNER macbook with Haswell Intel processor and Iris graphics), plus a pair of pockets for business cards and dvd-roms, and a little elasticated loop to hold a biro.
It's really nicely stitched together and looks professional. Your macbook will feel very snug and cosy inside. At around a tenner depending on which seller you go to, this is total value and worth the purchase.. you will have total peace of mind that your precious will come to no harm when wrapped up inside.

What it isn't -
This definately isnt for most laptops or macbooks due to the extremely precise tailoring for a 13" Macbook Pro Retina model (remember it holds only the Retina display / haswell chip / iris graphic macbook). if you have a super thin ultrabook, you may also be in luck, but check your laptop measurements against the macbook pro.
It's not a rugged outdoor carry case and it doesnt have hooks handles or loops. you carry it by hand as you would a book (remember those?).
Therefore I recommend you use this to supplement your standard laptop carry bag/satchel. Its perfect for once you're indoors and want something snazzy on your desk without your satchel stealing all the space.
This wallet looks like water, juice, tea and indeed your Venti mug of Latte would soak into it and stain very easily so be careful at the caffe!...

Summary -
Be prepared for comments such as "Wow, that's loveley! and I'm not talking about your Mac"
If you want something to protect your mackbook from picking up scratches while about the house or while inside a rucksack or satchel, this is for you. At around the ten pound mark with free saver-delivery, its a no brainer.

I use this case for my Retina 13.3 and even though simple it still looks fashionable and more importantly provides great protection for my mac in the house as I tend to use it in various rooms in the house. The fit is great too, not to tight and not to loose. I didn't get the small pouch for the cable but would not use it anyway.

I take that back.. Its a perfect fit for my samsung NP5403UC 13.3 inch ultra book..

I think £10 for this was worth it, it does not have a zip, but uses a black elastic type material (as pictured), It does not have a zip, so it should avoid being scratched as some have already mentioned. There isn't really much to say, as its only a protective case, it doesn't come with straps you will be using your hands, unless you put it inside a bag. And finally i love the simplistic grey look, nothing fancy so it can be used by professionals and students without feeling embarrassed.

I don't really feel that the views regarding this case really do it justice. This was a really nice case for a relatively good price. The inner layer is super soft and protective of the Macbook and the elastic band across the top is fine for the purpose of holding down the cover. The case itself looks really neat and professional. I was worried about whether this would fit after reading the reviews and it fit on perfectly fine. This product is for the newer Macbook Pro's (the ones without the CD drive). The new Mac is a lot more slimmer than the previous model and this case fits mine snuggly. It protects it when it's in my bag and on the way to uni and the pockets on the outside are useful for when you need to put important notes in (i.e. for a presentation). You can't really fault it. There's even a slot for putting in a pen or pencil.

Bought for my Early 2015 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display.

First of all, it arrived the next day which was ideal considering I had nothing to protect my new MacBook with.
For the price, this product is faultless; it is attractive and of good quality. The elastic strap keeps the MacBook secure and safe from moving around. My MacBook fits inside perfectly - it is not too tight, nor too spacious and is very light, which helps massively in terms of portability. The extra compartments are very useful and you can easily hold a wallet, phone, pen and business cards inside.

The only thing I would have liked is a compartment for my iPad as I have seen this on other, similar sleeves. Furthermore, the stitching is slightly off and is not perfectly straight. However, for the price this is not a problem at all.

I recommend this product: it is perfect for protecting your MacBook from scratches and marks when on the go.
