Best Value in a Leather Messenger Bag for MacBook Pro
Are you looking for a new, leather messenger bag to transport your Apple laptop and some personal items? You've arrived at the right place. You can spend another week searching all over the internet or spend a few days driving around to retail stores checking out your options. You may find something interesting, you may not.
You will not find anything like our Premium Leather MacBook Pro Messenger Bag.
What we offer is two excellent products bundled together to create a custom set that will not only protect your Apple laptop as long as you own it but look (and smell!) amazing while doing so. Moreover, the 2 components that make up this set can be used together or separately providing further value.
If you need to take your Apple laptop in a roller bag, you'll have the sleeve to protect it. If you need a bag for a weekend getaway (minus your laptop) and do not want to drag around the extra weight of a space stealing, built-in sleeve, the shoulder bag part of this set is an excellent solution. The quality and versatility of this bundle are unmatched.
Many companies make this style of shoulder bag. Many designers also put their names on similar styles. Many of those bags claim they are leather. Some are high quality and their prices reflect this. Especially for the designer labels. They have their multi-million dollar advertising programs to pay for.
Other times it's worse. The prices are not that high but they take the cost out of the actual product. So they'll claim it's leather but it's a much lower quality leather known as bonded leather which is made from scrap hides, plastic, vinyl, and fillers.
The newest marketing gibberish is something they are calling" vegan leather". Vegan leather is plastic. PVC or polyvinyl chloride. There is nothing about this material that has anything to do with real leather.
In constant production for over a decade, our leather MacBook Messenger Bag is a testament to the enduring quality and timeless, protective designs that MacCase is known for. Both the shoulder bag and the laptop sleeve are hand-made of wonderfully soft, yet durable hides. Together they provide long-term, outstanding protection for both your Apple laptop, accessories, and personal items.
This set offers a savings of $60 vs. purchasing the items separately. This is why we call it the best value in a leather messenger bag for MacBook that you will find.
Our Leather MacBook Pro Messenger Bag: Quality That Endures
Our standard production MacBook Pro Messenger Bag comes in two very different leather hides. While the bag and sleeve are matched to each other depending on which color you choose, the hides themselves are very different.
Our pebble-grain black hides feature a semi-sealed, top-grain, textured surface. This leather is finished in a traditional way and has the appearance that one might picture when someone tells you they bought a new black leather bag.
Our vintage brown hides are unfinished. They feature an authentic, raw, full-grain finish that reminds many people of suede. Suede is the backside of the hide. Our vintage is the front side unfinished.
Whether you choose the classic black or the maverick look of our vintage brown, each makes a perfect messenger bag for the MacBook Pro. The bag itself is the same for each size. What changes in the sleeve size. The sleeve is custom fit for the 14-inch or 16-inch Apple laptop.
Both the sleeve and the bag are made to endure. So much so they will probably outlast the laptops they are designed to carry. This is something we have seen since these models were introduced in 2008. Customers who purchased one of the early models call and write to let us know the pieces are still in the field. Yes, they have gone from PowerBooks to MacBooks and from a 13-inch to a 15-inch to a 16-inch, but the MacCase products endure.
We hope you choose one of our leather MacBook messenger bags for your trip around the block or around the world. If you do, there are two things you can count on: One is that this bundle represents the absolute best value of its kind, no matter what size Apple laptop you need to protect and transport. The second is that, as long as you need them to be, our products will be with you every step of the way.
Caring for Your Leather Messenger Bag for MacBook
Customers will often call or email and ask what is the best way to take care of their new MacCase leather MacBook messenger bag. The answer is, it depends. Our raw, vintage hides are different in their long-term care than the classic, black pebble grain leather available. We'll explain.
There is a lot of stress and tension that is put through the hides during each use. Over time, the high oil content of the distressed Vintage leather evaporates out. This loss of the oil can cause micro-tearing and premature wear if not replaced. For the Vintage set, we recommend conditioning or re-oiling the leather at least once a year. This will help keep the hides moisturized and keep the rain and snow from seeping in.
For the pebble grain black hides, things are simpler. The black hides are a semi-sealed, satin-finished leather that cleans up easily with a warm, damp cloth. Yearly conditioning of the leather is still a good idea, but not as necessary as the raw, unfinished Vintage brown.
Whichever version of our MacBook leather messenger bag you choose, you have the peace of mind knowing we back them with a limited lifetime warranty.

What is the Best Messenger Bag for a 14-inch MacBook Pro
The best messenger bag for the 14-inch MacBook Pro is one that will protect the laptop in your day-to-day travels and allow for room for other items you need to take with you on any given day. A good messenger can be created from man-made materials like nylon or a natural material like leather.
Do all 16-inch MacBook Pro Messenger Bags Come with a Separate Sleeve?
No, most 16-inch MacBook Pro Messenger Bags do not come with a separate sleeve for the laptop. Most messengers that are designed to carry a laptop have a built-in sleeve. The problem with this is you pay a weight and space penalty if you leave your 16-inch MacBook Pro home.
Will There Be Room for Other Items With the Sleeve Inside?
Yes, the amount will be dependent on the size of your laptop. You'll have more room with the 14-inch vs. the 16-inch MacBook Pro. But even with the 16", you will still have plenty of room for other items. The side profile of the Messenger Bag is a trapezoid and can hold quite a lot towards the bottom.
Is the Messenger Bag expandable?
The MacCase MacBook Pro Messenger Bag has a "fold-away" floor that allows the bag to lay flat against your body if you are carrying a minimal amount of things. Folding the floor up decreases the overall depth by about two-thirds creating a much thinner bag. Folding it down expands the capacity to maximum.
Do I Need the Accessory Pouch?
The Accessory Pouch is a great thing to have if you need to transport and protect all of the white Apple cables, adapters, chargers and other small items. A Pouch keeps these parts clean, safe and organized. Considering the cost of replacing them, an investment in one of the Pouches is a smart choice.
