Hardsleeve

Hardsleeve

Just 'cause they're gorgeous, don't think they're sissies.

 

Tucking your MacBook or 15-inch MacBook Pro into Axio's Hardsleeve case is like outfitting your laptop with armor. The hard plastic outer shell provides protection from dings and scratches, while the EVA foam inside cushions your 'Book and helps to absorb shocks. The Hardsleeve doesn't have handles or pockets, so it's not great for toting, unless you don't mind carrying it as you would a book. Still, the Hardsleeve is ideal for when you want to give your 'Book extra protection inside another bag or your luggage.

 

The bottom line. Take care of your MacBook, and it will take care of you. The Hardsleeve is a good way to start.

I just got one of these in the mail the other day in white. I'm not very impressed with it to tell you the truth. My macbook fit perfectly it it, but the hard outer shell is pretty much useless. There is no stiffness to it, and all the protection is coming from the foam inside. It also added alot of bulk to the laptop. So much that it wouldn't fit into my back pack. The pictures make it look better than it is also. It's pretty tacky to be honest. I will be returning it to axio.

I too like the Axio hard case. I will be buying the one that matches my macbook. I how ever can not choose. There are so many cool bags out there. I want the STM Small Alley (http://www.stmbags.com.au/smallalley). Or the Axio Sling Bag (www.axio-usa.com/). Both of these bags are great. I wish that I could have a feel test to see which ones would work better. Maybe you can help me out. Which one feels the best? Does one feel slicker than the other (for shedding water)? How is the thickness of the padding? How is it for holding things like cords, Ipod, pens, highlighters(or any other big style pen). These things are important to me. Price is not an option I want to protect my investment.

I think you're right on the money with your review of the Axio Hard Sleeve.

It's as tough as it is beautiful. I have one in black to match my MacBook. It fits perfectly in the EVA foam and the BIG zipper glides smothly.

My only beef is you have to buy the Axio Sling Bag, which is made specifically to carry the Hard Sleeve. I wouldn't mind, but they are so popular (the Sling Bags) that mine has been on back order for almost a month. Hopefully they'll be back in stock in a week.

What would be even kewler is the set up they had for the Hardsleeve SM, which was designed for the iBooks and PowerBooks. Those have "buttons" attached to the outside of the case to attach a strap. Zip and carry. I'm saddened that Axio didn't do this with the MacBook model.

For as much money as we put into our Macs, it only makes sense to protect them with a hardened case like the Hard Sleeve.

Follow up:

The SlingBag that is made for this HardSleeve is on back order until late August. I am majorly disappointed in Axio for not having the foresight to order enough of these in a timely manner.

Now I need to find the reviews on backpacks that can handle the HardSleeve that are not from Axio.
