      I probably shouldn't have bought this "Thule" laptop protector, but I was in a rush and purchased it alongside a new computer. The case itself is sturdy, and could probably protect the macbook from certain pounds of direct force more so than a traditional fabric. That is probably what you want to know chiefly when buying something like this for your macbook. But there are no pockets inside of the Thule case. There are no extra storage spaces anywhere, and that means that if you are going to carry around an extra dongle (which you might) or a charger/battery, you're not going to be able to load them into the Thule macbook case comfortably at all. Plus, this is an expensive rubber thing. It might also have some plastics in it, but beware that whatever you think you might be gaining from buying this Thule thing, you will not be gaining much storage with it.

      Nice case for the right computer - poor choice

      I was urged to purchase a case by the salesman at the store. He picked out a couple dull gray colored ones and I saw this attractive colored case. I asked the salesman if this would be the right size for my new mac air and he affirmed it. I did not see a sign on the cover to indicate what laptop was the appropriate size for it. My new Air was in the box still and I was ushered through checkout. Imagine my surprise when I went to open the cover a couple weeks later for a trip and found out it did not fit the air. I was leaving in 1.5 days and did not have time to exchange it. I did buy a great replacement on line via amazon though. When I returned from my trip, I went to return it and since more than 15 days thad expired was not allowed to receive credit, only store credit to buy more things. This was a great disappointment as the return sales staff were rude and condescending.

      Heavy duty protection for MacBook Pro

      Solid construction went into crafting this Thule case, which features a heavy duty zipper around the perimeter and tough material on the outside. Inside, a soft, quilted and padded liner hugs your MacBook Pro tightly. The fit is near-perfect for your MacBook Pro 13" with touch bar. Once zipped up, the contents shift minimally when slid back and forth. There are elastic bands inside that act as a stay-open stabilizer and prevent the case from opening all the way. I do not care for these and don't see the purpose, but some may like this feature. Eventually, I may cut them off. This case is no-nonsense rugged and will withstand a serious wear and tear while protecting your valuable MacBook. I highly recommend this. 4 stars due to the lack of other features like exterior pockets and the internal elastic bands.

      Great Case

      This case fits well. There is a little extra room around my MBP, but, not an obnoxious amount, that will leave the computer sliding about inside. The design is great. I have been purchasing various Thule bags for various devices for 6-7 years now, and this is up to the quality of all of them. It is nice to see that Thule went away from their traditional blue rubberized zipper pulls, those typically crack and break off after a year or two on their cases / bags. Overall a great case, I definitely feel like my computer is safe inside of it.

      Great Protective Case

      I bought this case for my Surface Pro 4 and so far it's working great. The case is slightly larger than the Pro 4, but it's nice because I can keep my keyboard and leather stand on the Pro 4. The only negative is that since the case was designed for a laptop I cannot use the Pro 4 inside the Thule case. The elastic straps on the side are not strong enough to hold the weight of the Pro 4 itself. I would recommend this case to either a laptop user or Surface Pro user. It's protective, yet slim, and looks/feels very nice.

      Perfect Laptop protecter for my Mac Book Pro

      I bout this to protect my Mac Book Pro while on the road, as I travel a lot for work. I was very pleased with the amount of protection that this cover gives. I would recommend this to anyone that has ever worried about the safety of their laptop while traveling or going to the office. It is a little bulkier than other cases but it is well worth it to get the level of protection it provides. The styling of the case is really nice too. The zipper is high quality and looks like it will last the life of the case

      I had tried the Speck cases for my apply laptop and it shattered within a month of having it and no longer protected my laptop like I needed it to. I wanted something not extremely bulky, which is why I tried those at first, but when I noticed this case, I decided to give it a go! I like this case so much better! Yes, it's bulkier than those Speck cases, but it's not so bulky that it's ridiculous. It protects my laptop so well and I feel great traveling with my laptop knowing it's protected so well!

      Bought this for my son to use on his new MacBook Pro as he headed off to be a freshman in college. It is light but very protective. Fits the 13.3" Mac perfectly. Designed well so that you can either open it up and use the laptop while still in the sleeve or of course, completely remove it. Highly recommend for extra protection for the expensive laptop while being transported or sitting in the room where it could be knocked off by the well intended friend :-)
