Nice, but too big for a MacBook Pro Retina...,
This review is from: AmazonBasics 13.3-Inch Laptop Sleeve (Personal Computers)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This sleeve seems to be very well made. The neoprene is sufficiently thick, and the zipper seems sturdy. However, it's much too loose for a 2013 Macbook Pro Retina 13.3". It is still usable, but the sleeve is a lot larger than what I would prefer.

There are multiple sizes to choose from. Do none of the sizes satisfy the size of the Macbook Pro? There should be a 13.3" available.

For the 13" rMBP (latest model), the issue with many sleeves is that this laptop is actually smaller than most of the other laptops with the same screen size. In terms of footprint, it is actually smaller than the 13" Macbook Air. So a sleeve that fits "pretty good" on a MBA, or a Dell, Acer, etc, will be too loose for the rMBP.
Even cases marketed for the 13" rMBP can be too large - they are frequently for the early 2013 (or earlier) models, which have a larger footprint.

You point out an issue I am attempting to accommodate with my own 2014 rMBP (13"). Have you by any chance encountered a suitable, close-fitting sleeve/case for my model? It seems every one I've tried has just a little too much "wiggle" room. Thanks very much.
