Carrying your MacBook in a messenger bag may be convenient, but it can be dangerous if your MacBook isn’t stored in a sleeve. This is because your Mac is susceptible to scratches, dents, and other mishaps from keys, chargers, and other things that reside in your bag. However, just because you want to cover your Mac with a sleeve doesn’t mean you have to cover it in an ugly, neoprene shell. In fact, some of these sleeves can look very sleek and sexy.
One of my favorite MacBook sleeves is the leather case by Etsy seller Santileather. All sleeves are handmade to your Mac’s dimensions and are made out of real cow leather and polyester. Each case is made to order, so if you have any special sizing requests, they can be sent to the seller. The flap that encloses your MacBook shuts securely with two buttons, ensuring your MacBook won’t fall out of the sleeve. Each case is available in black and brown leather.
Pricing on Santileather’s cases vary between MacBook model, but they generally sit around the $100 mark.
