10 Fresh Laptop / Macbook Cases [2013 Edition]

I once saw a man carrying his laptop in a plastic bag. A PLASTIC BAG. If there’s a fashion hell, he’s going to find himself in it. Apple takes great pride in creating devices that are just as dreamy to look at as they are to use, so you should take pride in how you cart yours around. Here are 10 fresh (and different) Macbook / laptop cases and covers that will protect you gear in style.


Case #1 – Defy Bags 15” Macbo
ok Pro Sleeve
The Macbook Pro is a beautiful, carefully-considered piece of design, so it deserves a case with equal attention to aesthetic detail. The 15” Macbook Pro Sleeve from Defy Bags is made from character-filled Horween leather, hand-cut from hand-measured patterns. That’s a lot of character crammed into just 15”.  (Price: $210.00 BUY)


Case #2 – Mujjo Macbook Air 11” Sleeve Brown
Mujjo’s hand-crafted Macbook Air 11” Sleeve blends high fashion with high functionality. The asymmetrical vegetable-tanned leather flap, single-snap closure, and grey 100% wool felt body make for a simple but effective sleeve that keeps your tech safe. As an added bonus, the materials are water repellent, sustainable, and renewable.  (Price: €59.95 BUY)


Case #3 – PKG Red Crown Collection Skinny Sleeve
PKG spared no expense to create the Skinny Sleeve for the Red Crown Collection. It’s made from a combo of genuine top grain distressed leather and 20oz canvas, available in several colorways. Inside you’ll find custom cotton striped lining, and outside it’s finished off with antique brass hardware and a rear stash pocket.  (Price: $89.99 BUY)


Case #4 – hard graft Grab Laptop Folio
This list would not be complete without one of the stunning wool and leather pieces from hard graft. The Grab Laptop Folio earned its name because it’s all you need to look good in a hurry – just grab it on your way to work and dash out the door. (Price: $230.00 BUY)


Case #5 – Silva 15” Bamboo Macbook Pro Case
When was the last time you saw a wool-lined laptop case made from a solid sheet of bamboo at the office? Yeah, I thought not. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth, making the Silva 15” Bamboo Macbook Pro Case a more sustainable option for your office gear.  (Price: $179.99 BUY)



Case #6 – Lusso Cartella Luxury Leather 15” Macbook Pro Sleeve
The Lusso Cartella Luxury Leather 15″ MacBook Pro Case is all about the beauty that can be found in simplicity. The only detail is a logo stamped into the front, meaning the focus is kept on the premium artisanal leather exterior, brushed luxury interior, and subtle blue stitching.  (Price: $99.99 BUY)


Case #7 – CC x CdG Diver Sleeve (Design A)
Let’s go bold. The CC x CdG Diver Sleeve (Design A) is the result of a collaboration between Côte&Ciel and COMME des GARÇONS. The brightly colored, dotted sleeve comes in Côte&Ciel’s signature Diamond Grip textile, with a second-skin fit for maximum durability and easy access to your laptop.   (Price: €52.00 BUY)


Case #8 – Incase Sling Sleeve
Constructed of custom weather resistant nylon, the Incase Sling Sleeve features a 7 mm cushioned interior with plush faux-fur lining, double-stitched concealable nylon handles, and an exterior magazine pocket with Velcro closure. Like everything from Incase, the Sling Sleeve is simple, comfortable, and convenient. (Price: $59.99 BUY)


Case #9 – Mismo Natural Leather 13” Laptop & Document Folder
Mismo believes in clean lines and high-quality materials. Both are on full display in the Natural Leather 13″ Laptop Case & Document Folder, a snuggly-fitted sleeve in a beautiful natural color. The folder also offers two pockets for pens, keys, business cards, and other vital office supplies. (Price: £220.00 BUY)
