The MacBook Pro is where power meets portability, and it's not an inexpensive computer — this laptop is an investment. If you take it with you on the go, you'll want to use a sleeve to protect your MacBook Pro from damage in case of accidental drops and bumps. Be sure to match your sleeve to your MacBook Pro model to ensure the perfect fit. Here are our favorite sleeves for MacBook Pro or we have the best MacBook Pro cases if you need something more robust.

Fits like a glove

You've chosen one of the best MacBooks you can buy, so you'll want to consider a MacBook Pro sleeve. The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Pro/Max and the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 are both powerful and beautiful. However, without some protection, your laptop is at risk of being damaged when you take it with you on the go.

If you'd rather not use one of our favorite regular MacBook Pro cases, at least grab a decent MacBook Pro sleeve! A quality sleeve will protect your MacBook Pro from scratches, spills, and the everyday wear and tear of shoving it into backpacks, carrying it around, and sliding it around on desks and tables.

A good MacBook Pro sleeve can help protect your precious laptop, but be sure to select one that fits your model. If you have the 16-inch MacBook Pro, most 15-inch sleeves, except for the tightest ones, should fit.

Our overall favorite is the official Leather Sleeve from Apple because it fits snugly and is well-made with quality materials. Not looking to spend too much money? The Mosiso sleeve has you covered with a well-priced option that gives you the protection you need. Regardless, be sure to protect your MacBook Pro from the elements!
