    Great for small laptops - 11 to 13 inches

    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.

    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!

    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.

    This is a great laptop bag for my MacBook Pro 13" Retina. I read a lot of reviews on a lot of different bags, and though this was a bit more than some other bags, it does a stellar job of protecting my laptop and other equipment. It has a great fur lining that protects my equipment perfectly, and the zipper is shielded from the laptop by that same fur lining; this way the zipper does not scratch or mar the edges of the laptop like some other bags might. The handles are well placed and durable, the pockets are perfect for carrying the charging cable and any extra equipment. I use this bag almost daily to take my laptop back and forth to work. I originally did not want to spend "this much" on a laptop bag, but I'm so pleased I did. I could not ask for a better bag for my sensitive and necessary computer.

    I have owned my Macbook 13" Pro and Incase Sling Sleeve for just over four years. Neither has had any problems. The Incase sling sleeve works perfectly for my uses. It protects my laptop well. I can easily store the charging cords, Mac remote, notepad and pens. The case works fine by itself. When I'm carrying more, the Sling Sleeve fits perfectly into the laptop sleeve in my Opsrey elroy bag, making it much easier to carry a lot of stuff. I don't have to move my Macbook and associated items between bags. I just put my Incase sling sleeve into the Osprey laptop sleeve as is, and it fits perfectly. After four years, the Incase shows no signs of wear: no fraying, nothing. I'm buying a Macbook for my wife and I'm going to get this same sling sleeve for hers, too.

    Yep, I did not use this product for its stated design. I repurposed it for my new Samsung Galaxy Protab S. Why? Although the Protab S comes with a built-in cover that doubles as a sweet keyboard I did not feel it provided safe portability and protection. So, I wanted something like a carrying case for my Protab S. I am so pleased with this product. It is compact enough to carry anywhere and provides a reasonable level of protection for my device. Plus, It gives me just enough room for my charger and any paperwork I may need to carry with my tablet. The features I love about this product include retractable handles and especially the convenient charging port access which is zippered. I do love this product. The best part, I stumbled upon it by mistake. lol

    I looked around for a case for my 13" MacBook. I found this case and thought it was really nice. It caught my eye right away. It's small, compact, has several small exterior pockets and an interior sleeve for several docs inside next to the gray felt padded laptop sleeve. It's handles tuck neatly away out of view if you prefer. It also has a small charging zipper so you can charge it while it's secured in the case. It also comes with a shoulder strap that you likely won't need because the case is small enough. This case is stylish and very well made. Great buy for what I was looking for. I highly recommend it.

    I wanted a case that was minimal in size, but would still hold my 13" MacBook Pro and my iPad. The Incase Sling Sleeve fit the bill, so I made the purchase despite the rather steep price tag. The case is built very well, separates the MacBook from the iPad to protect both, and has a zippered access "port" to allow you to charge your MacBook without removing it from the case. As an added bonus, it has handles which retract completely (I didn't notice the handles prior to purchase). I am quite happy with the case; my only qualm is the $60 price tag.

    Awesome sleeve/case for my MacBook Pro 13. Quality constructed. MacBook Pro 13 fits well in this case. Great upgrade from just a sleeve. Inside has the classic Incase soft lining. Plenty of room for storage of cables, power adapter/charger and some file papers, etc.. Fold away handles if you choose to not carry it like a briefcase. Shoulder strap included. Outside zip two sided pocket for storage. Corner zip opening for your charger cable connection while your MacBook is in the case. Inside also has two sections for storage. Yes it does fit inside a backpack. Highly recommended over just a sleeve.

    I wouldn't pay $60 for it. Quality wise I don't think it's worth that much, it's good but not that good. The material doesn't look very "high end" and the bag itself offers little padding against falls. Size wise it's a bit small, doable but small. I can fit my MacBook, a reg size notebook and some pens but after that there isn't much space left. You can fit a mouse and maybe a charger but it's gonna be tight. I would ONLY recommend if you get it for a maybe ~ $40, likely won't drop it and don't need much space.

    You can carry it like a briefcase, you can sling it like a shoulder bag, or you can through it in a backpack. The laptop pocket has a different material than the rest of the case and feels fluffy and smooth. Extra protection for your laptop for sure. This case is fancy. Plus, it has multiple pockets that you can use to store cables, dongles, and things of that nature.

    I purchased this sleeve for my new Asus 13.3 Q324 Notebook, the sleeve offers side zippers for a slim mouse and the charger. Inside is plush microfiber type lining, with split divider, offers satisfactory protection. Although made for an Apple product it works for me. For transport; handles can be pulled out of the sleeve or an included shoulder strap can be used if you choose not to carry as a clutch bag. It's priced rather high but the fit n finish is there. It's worth it!

    This is a great laptop case. It has handles that can be used or tucked away. The inside has a nice amount of padding with a separate compartment for papers or a small notebook. The compartment for the laptop is soft. It has an outside pocket for pens, pencils, cell phone, or small notebooks. There is a small zipper pocket on the outside bottom for a charging cable, but I have not had a need for that feature. Overall, great product so far (I've had it about one month).

    I searched online and in large retailers for a travel case that took minimum space and this was the only version that met my needs for my XPS 13. Construction is sturdy, cushioning seems excellent, zippers operate smoothly, and opening with separate zipper for access to power cord connection is a good feature I don't recall seeing in online descriptions. Only improvement I can suggest is pleated pockets on exterior instead of flat, so that they could expand a bit to hold power cord.
