    Right up front - I WAS NOT compensated for the purchase of this product. Paid my $60 plus tax for it at a local Best Buy (so I could bring IN all the computers and accessories I thought I might use it for). Good product as others have commented. Expensive but worth it, if you want a high quality ultra-light case for carry only the essentials. I don't use it for MacBooks. Instead, it easily holds an HP Elitebook Revolve 810 (a tablet/laptop hybrid computer. It also *JUST* holds my 13.3 inch HP Elitebook. Either of these are thin enough themselves to leave use of the other interior storage space. In addition, I have a 6 year old 14 "square", (not "wide screen" laptop that also "just fits". However it's closer to an inch and a quarter thick so it blocks the use of the other interior space being itself that thick. The other interior space (other side of where you place the laptop, is big enough for a couple of standard magazines, 8x11 writing tablet, OR, maybe 50 pages of paper, max. I recycle a FedEx mailing envelop to keep important papers in good shape for laptop travels. I do wish the outer pockets expanded a bit more, but that would add to its bulk. That said, this is one of the very FEW cases this slim that can still hold my iphone 6S Plus IN it's Otterbox Defender case (top/down, not on its side) in either of the two outer pockets. The pockets are JUST deep enough to allow for this. Typically, if space permits I will use the interior "tablet" (not padded) pocket INSIDE the case (in the section opposite of where your mobile computer fits, for carrying my phone. I "reduced" my wallet down to using a simple "page" for business cards - a plastic sleeve that holds six business cards - so it holds my most important cards and folded cash bills (may 2 bills at most) in a space a little over a quarter inch thick. This easily fits in one of the outer pockets when folded, plus one outer pocket has two pen loops. Leaves enough room for chap stick, a pad of sticky notes and iphone charging cable. You COULD fit a typical 45 to 65 watt laptop charging cable in the outer pockets but expect them to bulge out. Likewise, I like to use a portable mouse but even the thinnest one I have clearly shows a "bulge" when placed in either of the outer pockets. Still functional but again diminishes the "ultra thin look" of this case. Keep in mind, you have MAYBE a 1/2 inch of padding on the bottom of the case and more like 1/4 inch on the sides and top. NOT intended for heavy duty protection. I work in a public place with may people moving about and have nearly had my laptop knocked from my hands before. So, I wanted something I could carry easily indoors or across town, to keep my computer safe. This bag would NOT be my sole protection of said computer for out of town trips. I use both the handles AND the shoulder strap. With the handles OUT, you have another two small "pockets" facing up that you can use. I tuck my keys in one side (about 5 keys on my key ring) so they are snug and not visible but far easier to reach than having to unzip anything. The shoulder strap is incredibly high quality for this small of a bag. The padded part for your shoulder is probably 3 inches across and 8 or 9 inches long. Should fit large shoulders easily. One complaint and weakness noted previously has been the loops that the shoulder strap (removable by the way) fits into. The loops (or rings) ARE indeed made of plastic. They could become more brittle in the cold weather. I've not seen any sign of mine cracking, however, if you wanted to be sure, you could choose to replace the plastic ones with your own choice of one-inch metal ones - found easily at a hardware store. Again, only if you want to eliminate the one "non-metal" connection. The clips that attach to the rings on the shoulder strap itself are good, thick metal. Where I work, using the shoulder strap means leaving your hands free - one for doors and the other for coffee! I'm a male, 6 foot, and the fully extended strap can be worn comfortably cross-body. The zippers on the outside pocket are worth noting as you can fit them flush with the case itself - they tuck into the seams. This way, it takes a couple of extra seconds to pull them out but they won't get bent, caught, or broken off. Wins the case a couple of extra points for style too. I have received complements on the case itself. In summary, It's thin, light and with the pockets available, can carry your essentials. I much prefer this option rather than a lesser "sleeve" that I'd have to place inside yet another bag or backpack just to avoid having to carry it like a football everywhere. The price is high but it's the best combination of features and quality that I've found. For my primary uses, (hallways and elevators indoors daily, and across town trips), it should last years. PS - I completely sprayed the outside of mine, especially around the zippers, with a water-resistant treatment, to make the case far more water resistant, should I get caught in the rain with it.

    I use this Incase Sling Sleeve for my Macbook Pro 13 inch (late 2017) model and it fits snug. It has a grey plush interior that feels like luxury. PROs- It has multiple compartments that I use for my Logitech MX Anywhere 2 wireless mouse, my WD external hard drive, and extra USB cables. The compartment that the 13 inch MacBook Pro or Air has a plush almost feathery protection that is thick enough to withstand some tough love. I can fit it in my backpack, or I can pull out the hidden handles and carry it like a briefcase, or I can attach the included sling and carry it like a messenger bag. Oh, and it has a small zipper on the side so you can charge your laptop while it's in the bag. CONs- The price was high when I bought it; around $60.00. It only comes in the color black. It is a little thicker than other laptop sleeves. CONCLUSION- The case was worth every penny and I know that my laptop is safe when Incase. :)

    If You Only Carry A Laptop

    I purchased this case for my Samsung Notebook 9 Spin (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-notebook-9-spin-13-3-touch-screen-laptop-intel-core-i7-8gb-memory-256gb-solid-state-drive-pure-black/4525901.p?id=1219757969030&skuId=4525901) and it fits in this case perfectly. When I bought this case I wanted something that would be slim and sleek and this definitely fits the bill, but in retrospect it isn't very functional. The Samsung comes with an ultra small power block so it fits inside the case, but just barely. If you had the standard size Dell power block it likely wouldn't fit. You can forget about bringing anything more than a thin folder or maybe a small notebook and a pen or two. The case is well made and looks sharp, but if I had tried it out in store I would not have purchased it. I would recommend this more for a tablet than a laptop or for someone who only needs a case for their laptop and doens't carry anything else with them.

    Holds MacBook Pro cleanly, but...

    The InCase Sling Sleeve accomplishes its intended goal--to provide a well-fitting sleeve that encases/protects a 13.3 inch MacBook Pro, AND provide a shoulder strap for hands-free carrying. Most sleeves lack the latter feature, which was important to me. Furthermore, the extra pockets allow me to store the charging cable and brick, as well as a few other electronic/personal items. On the other hand, the InCase Sling Sleeve does not provide adequate space for standard manila file folders, which become creased. This often damages the papers contained therein. This is not a design fault, but rather my error in choosing this laptop carrier. In retrospect, I should have considered a 14-inch carrying case or larger. My friends laugh at me because they have already given up paper. Instead they choose to create electronic documents and store them on the computer itself. As long as the user takes into consideration the paper storage issue, I believe that s/he will like the InCase Sling Sleeve.

    This bag allows you to maintain portability of MBA

    You purchase an MacBook Air because of the portability of the machine. I mean when Jobs pulled the original out of an inter-office envelope, man I was sold on the Air. I didn't buy the original because of the cost, but I purchased a Oct 2010 model maxed out. I went searching for a bag, and everything was so much bigger than the Air. Of course any of these bags would work, but how do you stop all the other "stuff" from filling in all the space left vacant by the Air. You don't. At times, I would put my bag on a scale to see what the weight was. Wow, 7, 13, 16 pounds. I had to lug that thing around in NYC, what a pain. I thought, why did I buy such a lite computer. With this bag, it can't get out of control. The material used is TOP notch. It has a good strong feel to it. Good padding to protect the contents. If you are interested in this bag, purchase it now. Right now my Sling Sleeve weighs 7.3 pounds. That includes my Air, iPad mini, Magic Mouse, power supplies and several Flash drives. And a folder with paper work. One thing, I did replace the shoulder strap with one more sturdier.

    Had this bag / sleeve for a couple months. I love it. The versatility is amazing. I use it with a 2013 MacBook Pro. I can use it as a sleeve and it will fit in my Under Armor backpack laptop slot. Or I can attach the shoulder strap and use it like a laptop bag. It even has handles that can be used without the strap. Also, the handles and rings for shoulder strap tuck inside little pockets in the sleeve when you are not using them. That way you don't even know they exist when not being used. As for room, I carry my laptop, charger, pen, business cards, external SSD drive, and a Anchor battery charge pack in the bag. I have some room to spare. However, you are not going to get a lot in this case. I wanted something very minimal and this fits the bill perfectly. The quality and design thought that went into this are evident.

    Great case for surface pro 3!

    Posted

    There are not any cases/bags/sleeves made specifically for the Surface Pro 3 (SP3). All of the ones I've seen are either a fairly snug sleeve (with either no pockets or with small pockets that could hold something small but not the power cable), or other larger laptop bags that would completely drown the Surface Pro 3. This one is a great fit. The Surface Pro 3 fits comfortably and snugly. One of the side pockets includes some smaller pouches for pens (or the SP3 stylus!) and a larger pouch (presumably for a phone?) that fits the arc mouse perfectly. The power cord and brick fit very well in the other front pocket. Overall, the case is slim and works very well with the SP3 if you are looking to carry something more than just the SP3 in it.

    I purchased the Incase - Sling Sleeve for 13" Apple MacBook Pro and MacBook Air Laptops for the Surface 3 Pro and Keyboard that I had purchased earlier from Best Buy, I was not happy with the features of the ones that were in the PC area, so I ventured into the Mac accessory area and found this sling sleeve. I wanted something that had extra storage for all of my Surface 3 Pro accessories (charging block, interface adaptors, wireless mouse, and external hard drive. It has two external zippered pockets with room for my accessories. I also wanted to have the option of using a shoulder strap or just handles. The handles are well hidden in Velcro pockets inside the case. My only issue was that there was no color option at the store. Other than that, I am pleased with the design and functionality of this sleeve/case.
