Acme Made was created in 2002 by a couple of guys in San Francisco, with the sole purpose of designing, making and selling products to protect your computer and peripherals. They now have a line of Laptop Bags, Camera Cases, iPad, iPhone & eReader covers. There designs go from the basic to a much more elegant style, really something for every style person.
I was recently sent their Lombard Sleeve to test out. First let me say, I was given the White Antik version, which I absolutely loved the look of it--beautiful and elegant (shimmery, iridescent white with black design). The Lombard Sleeve is a MacBook Pro Sleeve-fit for 13" or 15" MacBook Pro (however it fit my laptop of similar dimensions without any difficulty). The outside of the Lombard Sleeve is highly water resistant. Inside consists of a soft touch lining covering a high density closed cell foam padding that provides you laptop with exceptional protection. The zipper closure goes across the top and about 1/3 of the way down on each side to make it super easy to slip the laptop in and out of.
Also, please note that this is a sleeve--designed to protect your laptop during transportation, etc not a laptop bag so you most likely would not be able to fit you power cable into the sleeve. However, a sleeve is much less bulky than the laptop bag so it is perfect for when you are taking your laptop places where you will not be using the power supply, such as taking it to class or on a flight, it is easy to pull out your sleeve protected laptop--leaving the power supply stowed in your carry on. I personally like to use the sleeve to protect my laptop in my backpack or messenger bags for taking to meetings and such--that way I have my meeting supplies and computer all in one bag. Plus, with the Lombard Sleeve you also get a removable nylon shoulder strap for when you just want to take the laptop. Acme Made also carries full laptop bags if that would suit your personal needs better than a sleeve.
I, personally, am very pleased with the Lombard Sleeve. I rarely need to take my laptop anywhere where I would actually need the power supply so why bother with an entire laptop bag and I never need extra computer related supplies so this is perfect for me! I love that the shoulder strap is optional, and I really feel my laptop is very protected when it is in the Lombard sleeve. Plus, I think it quite feminine (sorry guys but Acme Made does have some great choices for you too!) and I love that about it, I need that sometimes when living with all boys in the house!
Be sure to check out the other items Acme Made has to offer--I think the have some really great high quality products, that just might give your electronics the protection they need!
