Getting a new laptop is a big deal. Almost certainly, you are replacing a much used, beloved device that has – in my case, at least – weathered many bumps, scratches and near-miss coffee catastrophes. And those are just the external dangers!
My laptop has hobbled on its last legs for a while now, slowly losing functionality. Random keyboard tiles stopped working, the CD/DVD player rejected all manner of content, and, then, the final death knell came: OS upgrades were not compatible.
So, the new laptop arrived in all its shiny, fully-functional glory! Hooray!!
Then the next question immediately came: What am I going to carry this thing in?
I knew I didn’t want to go the whole laptop bag route. Been there, done that. I wanted a sleeve. So I had drilled down my shopping focus. Win.
I promptly took to an online shopping search. I hit my usual spots.
Something with that indescribable X factor.
(And it didn’t even take that long. Whew!)
Herschel Supply Co. Brand has an exclusive agreement to makes sleeves for Apple’s MacBooks. The sleeves come in sizes for the 13-inch, 15-in and 17-in MacBook Air and Pro series.
I love the simple monochromatic gray exterior (it does come in other colors) and a durable, canvas-y material. A simple square patch in the bottom marks their label.
Then, in a whimsical twist there is a neon lime green heavy-gauge zipper off-setting the grey hues.
On the inside, the sleeve gets even better.
It’s padded with a kitten fur-soft felt lining for protecting the laptop. Inside the interior is a top edging lining that is a satiny candy-stripe pattern that adds to the just-right whimsy tone.
This little sleeve is perfect. No doubt about it. But it would be next level, out of this world if it had a slim inside pocket. Just a small one so as not to alter the sleeve’s overall exterior lines. However that little pocket would be perfect for slipping a set of earbuds or connector cord into. Just a suggestion for Herschel Supply 2.0.
Otherwise, well done Herschel Supply Co. Well Done.
