Great design, great material, great sleeve.
I bought this because I wanted to protect my brand new MBA from the "dreaded dings" without taking up a lot of space in my courier I bought this because I wanted to protect my brand new MBA from the "dreaded dings" without taking up a lot of space in my courier bag. After seeing this on the Apple website I decided to step into the Apple store to check it out. Needless to say I was sold in a second. It's made out of a sturdy, stiff, almost ballistic nylon material that is not at all flimsy like so many of the neoprene zippered pouches out there. It's soft and well padded on the inside and really does fit my machine like a glove. Best of all, it adds very little thickness to the computer so the portability of the MBA really shines through. Oh, it looks cool too. Well done Thule, easily the best sleeve out there. …

Sturdy and Slim
I don't usually buy cases like this (Apple sent it to me as an apology for a shipping delay) but I must say I'm quite impressed. T I don't usually buy cases like this (Apple sent it to me as an apology for a shipping delay) but I must say I'm quite impressed. The material Thule uses feels practically like Kevlar. I feel like I could carry it under my jacket and stop a knife attack. Needless to say, it will keep the bumps and nicks off your computer.
The inside is smooth felt, and the velcro flap is strong and secure. My 13inch Retina MacBook fits snugly, and the whole thing barely adds a couple millimeters of thickness to the laptop. It still fits well in my computer bag. Now I have one more layer of protection. Nice! …

Cracks After 3 Months
I bought this at the Apple Store because of its sleek and durable look. While it is pretty durable, there are cracks developing at I bought this at the Apple Store because of its sleek and durable look. While it is pretty durable, there are cracks developing at the two ends of the opening. Because of these cracks the case is getting more loose. Also, the Velcro closing seems to be weakening.
Overall, I expected more from this product and brand. If you want something super durable, you might want to look elsewhere. …
