A good-looking laptop sleeve, but check the size carefully before you buy
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 February 2016
I've not come across a laptop sleeve made of felt before, so I was keen to try this one out with my ASUS X200CA 11-inch notebook.
It looks smart and distinctive, and makes a change from black nylon and other such materials.
The felt is 3/8 inch thick and has a soft suede-like lining. It feels well-padded and seems likely to protect your laptop from minor knocks and bumps. I've been pleased with the quality and value for money of other AmazonBasics accessories I've tried and this sleeve certainly comes up to their standards. With wear I would expect the felt (It's made of polyester, by the way, but feels like wool) to "pill" a bit, but I don't think that will spoil its appearance very much. You can always shave the pills off.
One area where you do need to be careful is sizing. My notebook is 11.875 inches wide by 7.75 inches deep by 1 inch thick. The product description give the interior size of the sleeve as 11.9" x 7.9". That suggests a close fit, and it is, especially taking the thickness of the notebook into account. It's pretty snug, and the top only just folds over onto its Velcro closure. I expect the fit will become easier with wear, but as it stands the exterior pockets are are so tight as to be more or less unusable. If you have a slimmer laptop or one that's a little less deep then there will be more room to play with.
In summary, this is a laptop sleeve that is smart and just a little bit different, but make sure about the fit before you order one.
