Obviously, we’re big fans of MacBooks. We take them everywhere. And while Apple makes pretty sturdy gear, we’ll admit that we still like to give our machines a bit more protection. There are tons of laptop sleeves on the market, but unfortunately, a lot of them strike us as a bit—well, blah. Haul’s line of MacBook sleeves, on the other hand, are anything but boring. Made from recycled billboards, each is a one-of-a-kind piece that can transport your laptop in singular style.
Haul’s RON laptop sleeve is designed to fit a 13-inch MacBook, and there are JOHN and DIRK models sized for 15- and 17-inch ’Books. The sleeves feature a full zipper along three sides and are lined in soft black neoprene to cushion your Mac as you schlep it along during the day. There’s also an internal flap, which you tuck the computer into, to protect the long edge from being scuffed up by the sleeve’s zipper.
They're a bit heavy—our 13-inch model weighed nearly 12 ounces—but haul's laptop sleeves are eye-catching and sturdy enough for even hard-core road warriors.
We'll probably never know what this billboard once said, but the giant letters left us with a cool striped pattern.
As nice as the inside is, it’s the outside that sets haul’s sleeves apart. They’re made from heavy-duty vinyl recycled from billboards. So rather than a standard array of colors, you can choose a one-of-a-kind sleeve in a wide range of strange and funky colors and patterns. Billboards are printed using dithered patterns to create full-color images from a limited number of inks, so the patterns can be quite abstract. While we were mesmerized by the thousands of dots of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black inks on our review model (and plenty of others you can choose in haul’s online store), control freaks and persnickety-types might not take as well to their nonstandard designs. But for folks with a certain design sense, haul’s sleeves are useful, eye-catching conversation starters.
