The Hex Legion 13″ MacBook Pro Sleeve is crafted from waxed canvas material and is made to fit a 13 inch MacBook Pro, a 13 inch MacBook Air, or a 13 inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display. I tested it out on the thickest of those three—a 13 inch MacBook Pro with standard display—and it fit snugly, but just fine. The slightly thinner MacBook Pro with Retina Display and MacBook Air will fit with plenty of room to spare. The Legion MacBook Pro sleeve is nicely padded, with a soft fleecy lining, and it should do a fine job protecting your MacBook Pro or Air from those day to day hazards found inside briefcases or backpacks. I do take issue a little bit with the description of the fabric on Hex’s website, as they call it ‘heavy, olive green waxed canvas’. I wouldn’t exactly call the material heavy, but it is a nice canvas and feels good in your hands.
What’s great about the Hex Legion 13″ MacBook Pro Sleeve?
1. Nice, thick padded sleeve should do a good job protecting your MacBook Pro or Air
2. Leather zipper pulls are pretty
3. Fleecy lining won’t scratch your precious laptop
What’s not so great?
1. The Hex Legion Sleeve is described as water-resistant, but I think that may be overstating things a bit. Water will bead on the surface of the canvas, but I wouldn’t want to be caught in a rainstorm with it.
Conclusion: Overall, this is a nice, reasonably protective sleeve for your 13 inch MacBook Pro, MacBook Pro with Retina Display or MacBook Air which will allow you to transport your laptop in safety and style. It is available directly from Hex for $39.95:
