13 MacBook Pro Case, 13 MacBook Air Case Designs: A Brief History
Our MacBook Pro 13-inch cases, sleeves, bags, and backpacks have been in constant production for over 15+ years. All our current designs fit several generations of 13 MBs including the 13-inch MacBook Air.
From our 13 inch nylon sleeve to our Premium Leather 13" Messenger Bag, MacCase's MacBook Pro 13-inch case, sleeve and backpack designs are brimming with groundbreaking solutions that allow them to protect better, last longer and look beautiful while doing it.
A lot people ask why we offer 2 distinct and different lines for Apple laptop protection. The answer is, because we can. MacCase invented the Apple specific market over 20 years ago. We stared out with a nylon case for the original iBook. Our line quickly grew to incorporate sleeves, backpack and briefcases among other styles.
When you start from zero everything is a plus. When you invent something from scratch and sell one of them, sales are up 100%! Woohoo! But MacCase is not about resting on it's laurels or past successes. And we have had our share.
We could have stopped at just doing nylon bags, but we didn't. Why? Luckily, the company's founder is a designer and an award winning one at that. He looked at what we were doing and thought let's try something new, again. So we reinvented the very market we created 10 years earlier. In 2007 our leather collection was born.
A Quality Leather MacBook Pro Bag for the 13-inch
Designed from the beginning to be the best Apple portable protection products the world had ever seen, they were all that and more. Protecting the 13 inch Apple laptops were a cornerstone of the original nylon models and this continues with our leather MacBook Pro bags and sleeves for the 13-inch Apple laptops.
MacCase continues to offer the best in Apple 13" laptop protection. No other technology-focused, soft goods manufacturer offers the breadth and scope of what MacCase does. Each MacCase is imbued with the passion and creativity of our multi-award-winning founder's ideas.
When you combine this with the commitment to world-class customer service by the men and women who work to distribute the products, you have a company that can endure the ups and downs of an extremely volatile and fickle market and still be flourishing 25 years later.
It's often said that you cannot be in business for 25 years unless you are doing something fundamentally right. The folks at MacCase went to art school, not business school. We believe this gives us an advantage.
We hate marketing. We hate accounting. You're not supposed to say things like that when you're in business. At least not publicly. But there it is. The truth. We love designing good products and the customers who appreciate them.
When we sit down to design a MacBook Pro bag for the 13 inch, we're not looking at the cost-benefit analysis charts or what the marketing data is saying. Our goal is to create something beautiful and something that will endure.
>And all our nylon or leather MacBook Pro 13-inch bags work with the MacBook Air 13-inch as well. With the Air laptop, you may find you will have a bit more room due to the thinner profile of the Air model.

We like to think of this model as the ultimate leather MacBook Pro 13-inch bag. Lightweight. compact and durable, its vertical design moves with you making it comfortable and easy to use.

That's why we are still here producing the world's best cases, bags and sleeves to protect the world's best thirteen-inch laptops. We've been doing this since the 13" Apple laptop was released and will continue to do so into the future.
