Apple’s Leather Sleeve for MacBook Pro is a thing of beauty (but not worth $199)

Apple’s Leather Sleeve for 15-inch MacBook Pro is a thing of beauty — as it should be for $199. 

Made by Apple, this sleeve is crafted from high-quality European leather. A soft microfiber lining keeps your 15-inch MacBook Pro protected. It’s a tight fit, but I guess that’s to hold it snugly and offer a good grip. 

Also note that you can’t charge your MacBook Pro without removing it from the Leather Sleeve. That’s probably to keep it from overheating, but still….



The full-grain leather develops a handsome patina over time, so it will only get more gorgeous over time. But is it worth 200 bucks? Nope. Spend that money on a case that offered more protection.

The Leather Sleeve is available in saddle brown (my favorite), midnight blue, or black.
