The texture from the "carbon fiber" skin is nice. That said, this skin is essentially a large vinyl type sticker. That's not really a bad thing. The adhesive is strong and at the same time, doesn't leave residue. The material used for the carbon fiber texture feels strong enough and seems like it could take some scratches without damaging the Macbook underneath.

Installation wasn't too bad. It's a dry install (meaning water is not required to smooth out bubbles) - and because the skin is an opaque skin - you don't have to worry about getting tiny pieces of dust underneath (though you should still try to keep it at a minimum). I've performed my share of wet install skins, and this one was easier than most of the wet installs. The skin is also pretty thick compared to wet install 3M transparent skins, so getting it on and smoothing it out is, in my opinion, easier.

So - from the above - you might be wondering why I only gave it two stars? The fit is awful. This is a rigid skin - not like the wet install transparent skins where you can stretch it a little.

The top skin isn't fitted well to the lid. Where there is nearly no room for error on the top or bottom of the lid skin, the sides have a little too much room.

Which is okay compared to the bottom skin. The bottom is so misaligned that several holes are covered half way which makes them un-serviceable.

After, I looked at some video reviews and notice others had the same problem. The skin is just cut poorly.

Before anyone asks, yes I have a 2012 Macbook Pro 15 with Retina display that this skin was made for.

To summarize, this is a nice quality skin, but the fit is poor.

I love this skin. It took me about 5 min to install and though I am a surgeon and perhaps this sort of thing comes easier to me I had none of the problems getting it aligned that some people mentioned above. If you hold it taut and "let it down evenly" onto your MBP while looking through the cut-outs at the 1) Apple (for Top), 2) Rubber Feet/Screws (for Bottom), and 3) Trackpad (for Wrist Rest) then you can get the alignment pretty quickly and cleanly w/out a lot of fuss. If the cut-out looks pretty good let a little bit more down to stick and then see how you're lined up along the upper edge. It THAT looks good then let the rest fly and smooth out the bubbles w/your fingers. The first couple attempts (try the Top first, it is easiest) I had trouble but the skin peels right off if you don't let the whole thing stick down immediately and I got the hang pretty easily after redoing it once or twice. No residue on Mac! Mine seemed cut nearly perfectly for the 15" MBP Retina.

It makes for a more secure grip while carting around and using the MBP and it doesn't slip out of my open bag anymore. It looks highly professional, not cheap and I'm very happy I got it (though I wish I had purchased on Amazon for the lower price).

For appearance and overall "cool" factor after I got it installed - I give it 5 stars, it really does look great.

That said, for the money I spent I would expect a LOT better fit. Like many of those who left negative feedback on this product, the fit SUCKS. Prepare to be frustrated. The bottom holes are off just enough to make it impossible to line everything up - I ended up trimming the large holes for the feet with an x-acto knife, all the while trying not to scratch the case with it, just to get the film to fit around the feet. I got it after much pain.

The top, while better, had its issues as well - it was just slightly too big in depth (front to back) and just slighty too small in width - so the edge of the film comes right up to the edge of the top and back of the laptop, but width-wise there is a 1/8" gap on both sides. Go figure ?

Obviously the engineers who designed the dies did not account for shrinkage over time, or just dropped the ball whatever the case, they could do a lot better. Again, for $40 for a sheet of plastic, I would expect MUCH better quality assurance and fit.

I should make it clear that installation would have been a breeze had the product been cut correctly , but due to the fitment, I had to take it off / put it back on several times and wrestle with it to make it fit right.

The inner "hand guard" fit perfectly, so apparently they are capable of getting something right.

Despite the hassle of dealing with the fit issues, once installed the skin looks stunning. If it were not for the fitment issues, I would definitely rate this 5 stars.

Maybe BodyGardz actually reads reviews and will make corrective action.

I'd say buy it, but be prepared to have patience and diligence in installing it.

This product is significantly below quality expectations. The final cut is poorly fit to a 2013 Macbook Pro Retina 15. The material is not made from 3M Di-Noc brand 8mm vinyl, but rather a substandard off brand vinyl replacement.

Do not purchase this product, look at alternatives that use actual 3M materials. I replaced with an iCarbons brand and was significantly more satisfied with the fit and quality of material.
