Protecting your gadget from negative external influences is an absolutely normal desire of a MacBook owner. Bags and special protective covers will help prevent the appearance of scuffs and scratches, the choice of which will please even the most fastidious client. Which bag for MacBook is more convenient, how to choose the right one and how they differ from each other — we will answer all these questions in our article.
What should be a bag for a MacBook
Since the range of models of covers for MacBook is wide, potential buyers often ask questions — what to look for, what selection criteria exist. In fact, the main thing when choosing a bag is the size of the laptop matrix. It is measured in inches. It is important that the MacBook can fit freely in the case and not dangle. In the case when straps are provided for attaching the gadget, it is necessary to tighten them so that they fit snugly against the laptop.
As a rule, leather bags for MacBooks are designed for any other laptops with the specified matrix size, the model does not matter. At the same time, we must not forget that different manufacturers can produce laptops with the same matrix, but different in size, with additional protrusions (as is the case with laptops equipped with high-capacity batteries). Case manufacturers do not always count on such moments. That’s why it’s better to come immediately with a gadget for trying on. Since this option is not available, for example, when ordering via the Internet, you should at least clarify what is the size of the compartment for the MacBook. Knowing the exact parameters of your laptop, you can choose the best option.
One of the most important characteristics of a bag is its weight and dimensions. The latter depend not only on the size of the MacBook, but also on the level of protection, the number of compartments. As for the weight, this parameter is directly related to the functions performed by the bag. Note that it is almost impossible to find a model whose weight will be less than a kilogram.
Important when choosing a bag for your MakBook is its functionality, colors, and protective properties. The main task of this product is to ensure the integrity and safety of the laptop. Listing all the variety of functions performed by such covers is a difficult task, since manufacturers often develop protective technologies themselves.
But still there are basic protection criteria, according to which good models should have a number of properties and characteristics. Among them, the most significant are:
- moisture resistance (for polyester and nylon);
- the presence of metal fittings (if this is not indicated, then the fittings are plastic);
- protective characteristics of the laptop compartment (for example, the walls of the compartment can protect against shock, moisture, frost);
- the presence of a rigid frame (this is true for models made of soft fabrics — artificial and natural leather, suede, nylon polyester);
- seam strength (for polyester and nylon);
- reinforcement (for nylon models);
- the presence of protection against side impacts;
- density (for certain types of polyester and nylon).

3 criteria for choosing a bag for MacBook 13
- Bag size
The most important criterion. MacBook bags today are presented in a large number of models of different sizes, but the optimal one will be one in which the MacBook fits freely in the bag. That is, it is better to purchase a model whose size will be slightly larger than the laptop itself.
If an order is made through an online store, then you should first clarify the parameters of the MacBook (if you take into account only the diameter of the monitor, there is a high risk of making a mistake with the size). Standard laptop models are 10-18 inches in size. When choosing, do not forget that the bag for the MacBook should, in addition to the gadget itself, contain all the necessary accessories and a charger.
The presence of a frame makes the case more practical and functional. The frame is both hard and soft. It provides a high degree of protection, is able to prevent bumps and dents on the case when dropped. Skeleton bag for MakBook has one drawback — a lot of weight. As for the soft, frameless options, they are lighter in weight, but slightly inferior in terms of protection. But, despite the lightness, soft cases have special pads that soften shocks and also protect the case from dents and scratches.
A bag for a MacBook or any other laptop should be durable and resistant to moisture. It is these two indicators that are the main ones when choosing materials for the manufacture of covers and bags. Among the wide variety, manufacturers often prefer genuine leather, pleasant to the touch, resistant to moisture and frost.
Leather bag for MacBooK, which you can buy at an affordable price, looks very stylish, while being durable and wear-resistant. Covers made of boa constrictor, crocodile, python skin look spectacular, they do not go out of fashion.
In addition to the main criteria, when choosing a model for your favorite MacBook, you should pay attention to other points that will help you decide on the best option.
What else to look for when choosing a bag
Finish quality. The seams must be even, stitched with high quality, there must be seals on the sides. Locks and fasteners made of plastic are not allowed as they can damage your MacBook. Do not forget — the case is designed to carry an expensive gadget.
Ability to keep in shape. This is important for providing shock protection.
Waterproof. Thanks to this property, the cover will reliably protect your MacBook from moisture — hail, snow, rain, high humidity.
Strength. A leather bag for MakBook will fit not only the laptop itself, but also a number of accessories, so it must have a high margin of safety and withstand considerable weight.
A few tips for caring for genuine leather MacBook bags
In order for a genuine leather model to remain attractive in appearance, not wear out too quickly and not lose its strength, it must be properly looked after, treated with water-repellent sprays, gels, and creams. Genuine leather does not like moisture. Apply the product to the skin in several layers, in stages, waiting for the previous layer to dry. You can use the treated MacBook case after the very last layer has dried.
If your MacBook bag has been exposed to rain, dry it at room temperature and hang it away from heating appliances. In no case should you use a hair dryer, iron or oven to dry.
Genuine leather products are afraid of aggressive environments, so nail polish remover, acetone, acids, alkalis, solvents and other potent solutions are not used to care for them.
Perfectly matched to your MacBook, a bag made of genuine leather is afraid of bright light — both sunlight and artificial. Therefore, try to minimize the effect of the light on the colored skin.
To store things made of leather, it is better to use cardboard boxes or linen bags — leather dries out and cracks in plastic bags.
Genuine leather is prone to scratches, folds and creases. It is impossible to remove them, but you can make them a little less noticeable — for this, the problem area should be gently wiped with fine sandpaper (zero).
