Inateck MacBook Protector Review
I recently had the chance to try out an Inateck MP1500: Macbook 15 Inch Case Cover Laptop Bag Felt Sleeve for Retina Macbook Pro. I'm not quite sure what its called as the title on the Inateck site seems more keyword stuffed than a name, but MP1500 doesn't seem like enough. It is basically a replacement for your laptop carrying case. It is made of felt and is very lightweight. Instead of stuffing the laptop in the carrying case, you use this instead. It comes in a 13" size, too, and there are three different styles.

The smaller secondary case is meant for the power adapter. However, mine didn't fit. Instead, use it for other accessories, or leave it at home.
I typically load up my carrying case with a bunch of junk. I don't necessarily need the extra stuff, but since there is space, I keep throwing it in there anyways. With the MP1500, the laptop fits snugly and there isn't much room for anything else. 
Besides the laptop slot, there are some extra pockets for additional goodies. There is an extra flap in the front, which goes across most of the bag and the power adapter does fit in. On the back are two smaller pockets (shown above) where a phone would fit in.

If you travel around considerably, the MP1500 sleeve is a great alternative to lugging around a heavy duty backpack. Consider using it for packing where you want to provide your laptop a little bit of protection from bouncing around, but don't see the benefit of a full blown bag. Or, use it as your carry-on bag, where you don't want or need much more.

Personally, I like the new sleeve and it serves its purpose well. While I tend to lug my machine home from work in a backpack, when I'm at work travelling between buildings with my laptop, this provides you with a nice level of protection from destruction. Well done.
