The Original Leather MacBook Pro Case
MacCase Premium Leather Flight Jackets are cases of timeless design and uncompromising quality. We chose each hide with great care. We then stitch them together one at a time by hand to create leather cases for MacBook Pro unlike any other.
Original in their design and authentic in their execution, they were created to be the best leather MacBook Pro cases available from anyone at any price. Many of the pieces that were created as part of our first production run in 2007 are still in the field. How many $200 bags can make that claim?
There is a MacCase case available for each size Apple laptop. In addition, there are also iPad versions. Our iPad Pro model has exclusive features designed specifically for the iPad Pro 12.9. That model can be seen here. We also have an "FJ" for the 10.5 iPad Pro. This model will also work with the 9.7 and is available here.
Over the years we have experimented with the fit of the laptops in our leather cases. We have some versions that fit very snuggly and others that had a more loose fit. What have our customers told us they liked best? Well, like jeans, relaxed fit seems to be the favorite.
Our current generation of Flight Jackets have this relaxed fit when it comes to sliding in your 13” or 15” Apple laptop. There is enough room to get the Touch Bar models easily in and out but the laptops are not swimming inside the case once inside.
Each handmade piece comes with a matching shoulder strap. A matching leather backpack strap set is an available option. This turns your Flight Jacket from one of the finest leather cases into one of the finest leather backpacks available. An optional shoulder pad is also available.
If you're debating about whether to purchase one, read the review below from PowerBook Central. Talk to someone who owns one or call us with your questions. The MacCase Premium Leather Flight Jacket has been called the "greatest laptop case ever designed". Does your Apple laptop deserve anything less?
Let Us Build a MacBook Pro Bag Just For You
All MacCase Premium Leather Flight Jacket models are available as part of our Custom Program. You can choose from over 4800 options including exterior leather color and finish, thread color, interior fabric color and adding a custom logo or monogram.
Some of the leather hides that are available for the custom case program include alternatives to our distressed Vintage brown. Distressed vintage blue, chocolate and gray are some of the most popular and make a striking statement when used for a custom laptop case like the one below.
Smooth leather finishes are also available in Tan, Red, Black and Chocolate. The smooth hides have a completely different look and feel to the distressed or pebble grains of our production models. Some would say they are the complete opposite.
The vintages hides vary from light to dark across the hide, have marks and other details that give the leather character. The smooth hides are pure and clean. It's amazing how different our laptop cases can look depending on the hide you choose.
Here is a recent note we received from a Custom Program client:
"I'd just like to thank you for the excellent product I've just received. It perfectly fits by Apple laptop and the workmanship is beyond reproach. I've had several of your cases over the years and was a bit skeptical about spending the extra money for a custom case, but it was worth every penny. Thank you again".

MacBook Leather Case: In Production 10 Years and Counting
Many bag companies treat their products like Nike treats their shoe designs or Sony used to treat their Walkmans, (kids ask your parents). What I mean by this is that model turn over, having new designs out every 3-6 months is much more important than building a well thought out, problem solving, beautiful design solution.
Building beautiful, timeless design solutions for 13" and 15" users is what MacCase does better than anyone. With our leather MacBook Pro case, the original design has been in production for nearly a decade. This is as rare as hen's teeth in the bag industry. Having a single design in production for nearly a decade is usually the privy of European fashion house like Chanel and Hermes.
For a company like MacCase to have a design in production for almost ten years is unheard of in the fast moving, ever-changing world of Apple portables. A model whose core design has remained the same since it's inception in 2009, the leather Flight Jackets struck a chord with Apple users. It continues to do so today.
This is a testament to the timeless quality of the design combined with the bullet proof quality of the materials. Having each piece handmade by people passionate about building the absolute best products helps too.
It's combination of compact size, sleek profile and Hollywood good looks has made it the first choice for 13" and 15" users looking for a case that can do it all. Don't just take out word for it. Read the independent review below.
The ‘Book Mystique Review - Premium Leather MacBook Pro Caseby Charles W. Moore.
A few months back I reviewed the retro revival of the MacCase Classic computer case. Originally designed in 1999 for the then brand-new clamshell iBook. Now offered for the 13-inch MacBook in the full range of classic iBook colors. Both the design and workmanship of the Key Lime Classic Case we tested were impressive. The latest offering from MacCase takes cool and classy to an even higher level.
MacCase’s Premium Leather Flight Jacket has a retro flare as well. This time reaching substantially further back then 1999 to the era between the twentieth century world wars.
It was a time when aviators wore leather flight jackets to buffer the wind-battering they got in open-cockpit aircraft. Chilly temperatures at high altitudes in non-pressurized cabins made such clothing a must. The design looks like a piece of kit in which Indiana Jones, a young Indiana Jones, might have used.
Designed by MacCase CEO Michael Santoro, a professional industrial designer who spent six years working in Chrysler’s styling office. During which he created the exterior design of the 1995 Car Of The Year: the Chrysler Cirrus. Along with its sistership the Dodge Status.
As well as the return-to-its-roots restyle of the 1996 - 2006 Jeep Wrangler. Mr. Santoro clearly has a feel and flair for traditionally iconic form. He's also done design consultancy for the Vector M-12 and Lamborghini Jota exoticars, and the Gulfstream G5 executive aircraft.
Drawing on the success of MacCase’s Premium Leather Collection of computer sleeves, shoulder bags, and iPod, iPhone, and accessory cases, which are contemporarily-styled, the MacCase Premium Leather Flight Jacket has a more complex and retro-funky look. It is entirely believable as something that might have been made in the 1930s.
Pictures really don’t do it justice, and it has a presence that kind of reaches out and grabs you. “I want that,” was my wife’s immediate comment upon spotting the desgin for the first time. Even before she even knew what it was. It has that effect; you want to touch it.
The MacCase Premium Leather Flight Jacket is available custom-sized to fit and protect the 13" and 15" Apple laptops. Its vertically-oriented compact form factor offers effective protection. These are Apple laptop cases with minimal bulk.
Carry it briefcase-style with its top handle or under the arm using the provided matching leather shoulder strap. There is even a backpack mode with the optional backpack straps. This turns the Flight Jacket into a leather MacBook backpack.
Michael Santoro comments that “the design of the Flight Jacket embodies the minimalism of the Apple design and the the romanticism of our Premium Leather. Apple owners looking for a timeless laptop case designed with outstanding protection and minimal bulk will find this and more in these models.” They combine the protective benefits of the company’s sleeve with the utility of the larger shoulder bag.
The case is available in 2 colors: Black and Distressed Vintage Brown. All feature contrasting white stitching and robust stainless steel hardware. Our review unit is the Distressed Vintage version. I have only seen the Black version in photographs. My provisional take is that the Distressed Vintage highlights the design most effectively.
As noted, there are several models to choose from, each respectively custom sized to fit and protect the respective Apple laptop. So no matter which Apple portable you need to carry and protect, there's one for you.
The quality of the leather work is excellent. The material itself thick but luxuriously soft, with neatly-done stitching. The computer compartment closure is a fold over flap with generous overlap. Secured with color - matched velcro closures.
The Flight Jacket has several storage pockets for accessories. A removable, customized pouch for the MacBook Air Super Drive or AC adapter for the larger Pro models.
On the outer face of the flap is a full-width zipper-closure pocket. It's lined with nylon taffeta fabric over what feels like a thin layer of foam padding. Under the flap cover on the front of the main body of the case is another the pocket. It's also taffeta-lined and with its own dedicated central Velcro closure.
There is another deep, open pocket on the back side of the case. The computer compartment is lined with a soft knit fabric and has somewhat heavier protective padding. The shoulder strap or backpack harness attach to the Flight Jacket with hefty, swivel-mounted spring clips. Both attach to riveted, sewn-in stainless steel D-rings.
Overall this Apple laptop case is a thing of beauty and highly recommended.
