Details are everything and this sleeve oozes of detail. It even comes wrapped in it’s own protective pouch.
At first glance (and second and third), this sleeve looks just stunning. The sleeve is handmade and provides a very sleek and slim option for transporting your laptop around minimally in style and versatility. At the time of writing this, this particular sleeve comes in three color way combos with this being in black leather on dark wool.
What really drew me to this sleeve aside from it’s looks were the large leather front pockets. I work remotely often and having a charger is pretty much a necessity when I plan to do a lot of work. Having the large pockets in front to store my charger and other cables allows me to be on the go without having to carry a laptop bag.
I can also see myself using this for my iPad Pro, or even just as a document sleeve or pouch to carry small essentials.
You can tell the craftsmanship is top notch. The merino wool felt, YKK zipper (the Japanese zipper behemoth) and Italian premium leather all feel really amazing (it smells amazing too). My 15″ MacBook Pro Retina fits inside so nicely. It’s not too snug where it’s hard to put in and take out but snug enough to feel super secure.
So while the look and feel of this really is top-notch, I do kind of question the durability of it. I just worry a little that the stitching may unravel at some point. I guess only time will tell.
I will definitely update my review after some time, whether that means increasing or decreasing my rating with additional notes regarding the durability.
After all said and done, I really do love this sleeve. But one thing we as consumers always have to think about is… is it worth the price tag? That’s a tough question at the moment just because I don’t know how well this will hold up. If it does hold up, then yes, it’s definitely worth it. The style and functionality, coupled with the fact that it’s handmade, makes this sleeve truly in a league of it’s own.
Oh! And shipping was blazing fast! Once the sleeve was made, it took only 2 days to get to California from Poland. If you’ve ordered anything from overseas before, more times than not, you’re waiting quite a while.
So to conclude, if you’re looking for a stylish and functional sleeve for your 15″ MacBook Pro Retina or other similarly sized laptop, you should really give this one by Cinnamon Cocoon some serious thought. They make a ton of other products that are also worth checking out.
