I have to admit that the fit is excellent (MacBook Air 13" - late June 2012 model). Unfortunately the quality is horrible. While Thule is flaunting "stitch-free, heat welded seams" they have decided to attach the Velcro strap to the sleeve by a piece of photo mounting tape. Just think for a second - the only thing that prevents the flap from opening and spilling your 3 lbs $1,500 laptop on the pavement is a piece of photo mounting tape. No surprise that the very first time I was opening the flap the double-sided mounting tape gave up and the Velcro fell off of the sleeve. I am not going to look for DIY solutions like Crazy Glue after paying fifty dollars so the sleeve is going back to amazon and Thule are going off of my trusted manufacturers list.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I obtained this case for my MacBook air, but ended up using it for my iPad on a trip to the Himalayas, as ultimately I did not want to risk my MacBook and also because the iPad had a longer battery life. Because I used it for iPad, the case ended up being larger than it needed to be. However due to the shape of my backpack this turned out not to be a problem.

The case itself is well constructed, essentially as the marketing information makes it out to be. There is little to no chance of water seeping in. The case provides a medium amount of crush resistance. Of course I didn't test it to the breaking point but basically it looks like it could take the abuse of being in a more or less cared for backpack or even stuffed into a suitcase. Use this at your own risk, however. Don't let the THULE branding fool you into thinking that this is an all weather, "toughbook" type case. Is it tough? Yes, but not extremely so.

Aesthetically it looks pretty good and will flatter the contours of your MacBook air nicely. While I own a MacBook Air for business purposes I don't personally use it on a daily basis, therefore I cannot comment definitively on the suitability of this case for daily use. However getting the MacBook air into and out of the case takes a bit of time so for serious everyday use I suspect it's not the greatest. at as an iPad case for rough environments, its toughness, waterproofness, LIGHTNESS fit the bill for me.

Love Thule products. Have a Kuzy Kuzy - AIR 13-inch BLUE Rubberized Hard Case Cover SeeThru for Apple MacBook Air 13.3" (A1369 and A1466) - Blue cover on my Macbook Air 13" laptop. Laptop fits really tightly into this Thule sleeve. Almost impossible to get the computer out. The Thule sleeve is a little too small length-wise. Plenty of room width-wise though. Should fit fine, but really snug, without a hard-case already on computer.

Update - Ended up purchasing the Brenthaven 2176 ProStyle Sleeve I for 13-inch MacBook Air/Pro/Ultra Brenthaven 2176 ProStyle Sleeve I for 13-Inch MacBook Air/MacBook Pro / Ultrabook - Plum. The 13" MacBook Air with the Kuzy case fits perfectly; plenty of wiggle room to easily slide computer in and out. In addition, the Brenthaven sleeve has a 4.75" long and 3.5" deep zippered side pocket that will fit the MacBook's usb charging wire and wall outlet charger attachment. Also, sleeve fits into the water pack/file/laptop sleeve inside the Kriega R25 backpack.

The Velcro fastening holding the sleeve shut pulled loose the very first time I opened the sleeve -- first time out of the box. Immediate failure. Thule likes to claim high quality, but this falls very short. I had read reviews mentioning this problem, but I thought they were unlucky or that, at least, Thule would have fixed this problem. Hard to believe they haven't. Apparently they do not care. I am very disappointed. Do not waste your time and money on this one.

UPDATE: I complained to Thule and got a very dismissive reply saying that I must have gotten "an older version that Amazon still had in stock." Unlikely, since the first complaint about the Velcro was posted more than six months ago. These people really do not care!

Note this review is not for rain protection, it would have another star if your main concern is inadvertent watering of your Air.

The velcro unglued itself w/in a month of very light use, this doesn't actually bother me as I consider the velcro a nuisance, but for those who like it be further warned.

The edges afford a nice bit of protection from bumps, important to me as I keep this in a messenger bag and tend to set that down heavily. But there is no lateral protection, the sleeve is floppy. I'm still looking for a thin sleeve that will keep the keyboard from pressing into the screen when it's in my bag with a bunch of books, STM turtle was great for this on MB Pro, except it's discontinued and never made for 13" or air.

The flap isn't as large and annoying as it looks in the image, this is still a better sleeve than the neoprene ones that only prevent scratching.

The velco strap on both flaps of this product WILL come off. I super glued it and now it seems fine. The rest of it is fine

This case only lasted 3 days before the Velcro strip on the body started peeling off. Based on reviews elsewhere, this seems to be a common problem. Thule needs to work with its Chinese manufacturer to tighten up quality control. Given that this issue is widespread and completely preventable, I cannot give more than one star. That is a shame, because otherwise this is a very nice looking case that provides a fair amount of protection for such a slim profile. There is one more problem related to the Velcro. Opening the flap makes such a loud ripping sound that it will draw stares if you do it during a meeting. I would like to see this case redesigned with magnetic closures or just a couple of dots of well-adhered Velcro.

Update: I reattached the velcro with Titebond gel superglue, which bonded far better than I expected. If the case had come from the factory like this I would have given it 4-5 stars.
