This review is from: Thule TAS-115 15" MacBook Sleeve (Personal Computers)
It's not a totally hard shell, but it seems like it will protect my mac in my Timbuk2 Command Laptop Messenger Bag, which doesn't have enough padding for my taste.
My early 2011 15" MBP fits snugly, even with a logitech universal receiver sticking out.
The mac seems to cool down quickly enough when I close it that I think overheating won't be a problem. I take it out of the sleeve when using it, however.
Some people have complained about the smell. It had a chemical smell for a few days, but now, a month later, I can barely smell it if I stick my nose right in it. So I suspect that the smell won't be a problem for most people.
Some people have complained about the waterproof zippers being tough to use. They haven't been a problem for me. There are elastic bands that can get in the way when zipping it up, so you have to be sure to tuck them in before zipping.
