      Great Simplified Computer Bag that's Durable

      In our family, we all have our large Thule computer backpacks but as we do with any storage item, we store things in it. While this makes it great when traveling out of town or away from home because we can easily pack up our laptop & all of our accessories not only for the laptop but also for our iPhones and/or iPads. That said, there are many times we want to be able to take our laptop around the house or to somewhere local but don't want to drag the 50 lbs. of accessories we have neatly packed in our laptop backpack. I bought this bag for my husband's laptop because he regularly has to bring it to his job which is outside; therefore, it's dusty & there are no tabletops to set his laptop down while he has to be away from it 30 minutes at a time but doesn't want to put it completely away. This bag has completely resolved all of that. It's durable enough to protect his $2K MAC laptop while it's regularly subjected to the CO elements & subject to his unintentional careless treatment of his laptop purely created by the natural chaos of his job. It's no longer under such duress & abuse because he said it's such a great portable bag that he doesn't even remove it from the bag while teaching, quickly zips it back up because Thule makes such quality bags, including the zippers, while he has to be away from it so now if it's even accidentally abused, it's well protected. Typical Thule bags, they managed to provide durability without bulk or weight and as if that's not enough, they even incorporated a good size storage area across from the secured laptop so he can again only carry what he needs since he is only gone with it for the day. I attribute this to Thule brilliant idea of making the bag sort of tear dropped shaped meaning the bottom is wider than the top which is minimal visually but it gives maximum storage and protection for such a light & compact bag. He actually loves it so much, he's started taking it with him when he travels out of state. They also make a similar bag for Go Pro cameras that I'm considering purchasing for him as well because it's the other major part of his job that is currently being carried to work in a different Thule backpack which he loves but some situations he has learned requires less, not more so it's very nice to have options from such reputable & reliable companies like Thule but also from companies like Thule that have learned to make the most out of the least so we can live our busy lives that much easier.

      Great Bag / Case!

      I'm quite pleased with this Thule bag / case. It's no secret that Thule puts out quality products, and I'm no stranger to that notion considering I have purchased Thule bike racks for cars and other laptop cases. I haven't had an experience where I've dropped, or otherwise, put the case to the test, but it does feel sturdy enough that it seems that it would suffice in protecting my MacBooks. I have a 13" MacBook Pro and a 13" MacBook Air. I have resigned my MacBook Pro that has a few years under it's belt to being a home laptop and bought the Air recently for portable use back and forth to school and work and took the chance on this bag, though it's not advertised with an aim at use with an Air. If you're considering this for an Air, don't fret - despite the difference in dimensions of a Pro & Air, the Air does, indeed, fit in, albeit a bit more snug. This bag has just the right amount of partitions and pockets to toss a one subject notebook in it, with a couple pens, a magic mouse, external HDD and power and USB cords. A bonus was making me quit the big 5 subject notebooks cold turkey and to stop lugging around everything AND the kitchen sink in my book bag. Can't go wrong with this Thule, it may transform your life more than just having a nifty protective case. Side note: I get a lot of compliments on it, which kinda threw me for a loop because I thought they seemed rather commonplace. Good stuff. Good stuff, indeed.

      Best case for MacBook or iPad Pro

      I first bought one of these seven years ago for my MacBook Pro because it has room for the charger and cords. Every time I saw someone carrying their MacBook in a sleeve and their charger in the other hand, I thought, what’s the point? Bigger bags were available, but they were just that, bigger, clunkier, ugly bags. Then I found the Thule shell and remarked how perfect it was. I could carry everything thing that I needed, computer, charger, memory cards, usb cords, etc., all in a very sleek case. In addition to that, you can keep the computer in the case while using it! Just unzip it and flip it and the computer open. I recently bought a second one for my wife’s iPad Pro. It may not be quite as perfect for that, but she wanted to also carry her charger and Magic keyboard and have it well protected when she takes it to performances along with her violin, as she keeps her music on the iPad. Be sure to get the one with the little extra hump in it if you want room for your charger and cords, as they make a slimmer fitting one and if you know you’re never going to need your charger when operating remotely, then maybe you might like that one, but I have never felt comfortable separating my charger from my computer. I highly recommend this case and they back it up with a 25 year warranty.

      Tough Stuff

      I ride motorcycles. I do lots of long (5,000 mile plus) trips and often blog those trips. I also use Evernote for everything. So I was looking for something that was durable and convenient to carry my MacBook Pro 13", my iPad and a few small items on the motorcycle. This case fit the bill. In fact, I like it so much I've started using it all the time, even when I'm not on the bike. Make no mistake -- this is not a roomy case, but; it is set up so well -- especially with the "wide" bottom for holding cables and such -- that unless you wish to include a kitchen sink, you'll find room for everything you need. It's sturdy, looks great, provides all the protection one could want and, as Henry Ford said, you can get it in any color you want as long as it's black. (Hey, I ride motorcycles -- black is mandatory.) It fits the 13" MacBook perfectly and slides into the small bags on a cycle with room to spare. The iPad pocket is protective and well placed. I especially like the velcro strap that secures that pocket. I love this case.

      Great Carry Case

      A friend of mine purchased one of these and I thought it looked like a good case. I purchased one for myself and have been using it for about 3 weeks now. The case is very rugged and well designed. I can fit my Microsoft Surface Pro 3, the charger, a mouse, a hotspot, my ipad or a notebook and some key cabling (HDMI cable, Ethernet cable, some dongles, etc.) in this case with no issues. It won't hold much more than that but it will definitely hold your essential items for a day trip or offsite meetings, etc. It is rugged enough I put it in the saddlebag of my motorcycle with no worries. I would highly recommend this case to someone who is not looking to take everything they own with them but who wants to be able to pack the work necessities and carry them in a secure, safe, and organized manner to/from work or meetings, etc.

      Previous to this THULE, I had a cocoon backpack that I really liked but it simply fell apart. I also found I shoved a lot of extra stuff in it and so it was always cluttered and filled with stuff. I really wanted something simple that would hold all my essentials but not the clutter I tend to carry. The THULE is just right. It holds my MacBook Pro and iPad safely inside plus just the right design space for the power cord and charger. My checkbook fits securely and there is just enough room for essentials only. It looks great and keeps the clutter down. I had someone stop me the other day and complement how nice the bag looked. This morning I stopped the car quickly and the bag went flying onto the floor but all was well protected inside. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something simple yet high quality. I would especially recommend it if you have a mac since it is custom tailored to fit just perfectly inside. Oh and the zipper is water resistant too so I'm not afraid to carry this around in the rain. I am very satisfied with my Thule.

      Top notch protection for a 13" laptop

      I bought this case to protect a 13" Dell Inspiron laptop - I also have a 13" MacBook Air. They both fit perfectly in the case. One of the things that I really like about the case is the semi-rigid partition between the laptop and the area in which one would store the charger and other items - very good protection to keep them from bumping into each other. Additionally, the case provides good drop-shock protection, and the zippers (although a bit stiff) provide very good protection against the wet elements. Without out doubt, the case is virtually leakproof against the elements. About the only complaint - albeit a minor one - is that the case zipper (which is what protects the inside from rain, etc.) can be a bit difficult to open. However, I quickly got used to the function of the zippers, and that is't a big problem for me. Again, this is one of the most protective cases on the market. It does have a shoulder strap, but I don't use it.

      Thule - Gauntlet Attaché Case for 13" Apple® MacBo

      This case is just what I needed for my Macbook Pro. I needed a good case to protect a $1500 laptop, so I made a smart choice and went with the Thule case. Now the zippers may be a little tough to pull and from what other reviewers have said about the zippers coming apart, i'm just being gentle with the zippers. Besides being careful with the zippers, the case seems to do a good job protecting my Macbook. The outside is made with a thick, rubbery type of material. Also there are some supporters inside the case that will keep your case open so you can use your Macbook while it's inside the case. Lastly there are tons of pouches to keep accessories in. There is enough space in there to hold your Macbook, iPad, extended adapter, cell phone, and many other accessories. If you want a good, protective, and roomy case for your Macbook Pro, rely on Thule.
