Now let’s talk about sleeves. This is the easiest one of the bunch because honestly, there aren’t too many bells and whistles available with sleeves.
A good sleeve really just prevents dirt, debris or minor bumps and scratches. The differences between them are usually material and additional storage spaces. With that in mind, sleeves are usually for a laptop in the 12″ to 15.5″ range, so bigger sizes may require a bag.
Either way, whether you choose a backpack, sling bag or sleeve all that matters is that you’re protecting your investment in your laptop and the data therein. So, here are the best laptop sleeves for 2018 (they’re so similar, so it’ll be a short one.)
BUYER NOTE: Most cases are made to fit a standard MacBook. Please pay attention to the sizing. If you’re the type with a super laptop that has an odd or uneven shape, a bag may be a better investment.
All purpose for most sizes
Slim and sleek while still providing extra this powerhouse of a sleeve by Lacdo covers most of your bases. The Protective Laptop Sleeve Case borders between sleeve and briefcase for your convenience and has two additional pockets on the outside for storage.
This shock-resistant and water repellent case is compatible with all your standard laptop sizes and comes in a variety of colors. Your laptop is protected inside and out by an anti-static lining and previously mentioned shock absorbing outer padding.
This one is my favorite on the list as it blends functionality with a clean look.
If you already have a bag and are look for a cover or simply want a minimalistic way to protect your laptop – Comfyable and their Mac Air Case have nailed the essentials.
This case is really really good looking. It’s simple with everything you’d need and none of what you wouldn’t. It’s protective enough for minor bumps and shocks and its nylon exterior is tough and water resistant.
As additional features, it comes with an accessory pocket in the front for you to store minor accessories. Comfyable provides a simple and clean package with legit protection for your electronics.
Sleek w/ Addition Protection
In a perfect world, none of would need anything to protect anything. For this one, there’s the 15-15.6 Inch PU Polyester Slow-recovery Sponge Shockproof & Water-resistant Laptop Sleeve by Tomantek.
Minimalist in profile but a bit heavier on the cushioning, Tomantek provides a slightly tougher solution/look to those looking for a sleeve.
The surface is a spill-resistant PU material that covers a 6mm high-density shockproof sponge. Under that is a soft internal velvet cushion and a waterproof zipper to seal it all.
The sleeve comes in multiple sizes and has a more aggressive look than the previous models. If this is your style it’s worth a look.
Kickin’ it Old School
Modern technology is always preferable, but sometimes it’s nice to be a bit rustic. D&M Leather Studio’s Distressed Leather sleeve is exactly that.
The name really gives everything about the case away. It’s a simple design, with an extra pocket for accessories. The hand-sewn design, high-quality cow leather and button snap closure give it a unique and signature design.
The sleeve comes in multiple sizes for MacBooks. The only downside(?) is they’re made to order and can’t ship immediately.
Just in case you skipped the into, please make sure you know the size of your laptop or Macbook before ordering.
If you have a favorite sleeve that didn’t make the list let me know.
