The Best #Protection Sleeve for your #MacBookPro with #Touchbar

It all started when I purchased the new late 2016 MacBook Pro with touch bar on launch day. I needed a new carrying case/sleeve due to the new size, but quickly learned there wasn't anything available yet.  I've always purchased protective sleeves from Incase and I expected them to have something to fit the new MacBook Pro either at launch or fairly soon after. Well, fast forward two months after purchase and there’s still nothing released from Incase. I reached out to them twice on Twitter and they never replied. At this point, I decided to search for a replacement brand and product since my traveling dates were fast approaching and I needed something quickly to keep my MacBook Pro protected while carried in my Ajna Fstop Gear Backpack

This is when I came across a company called Mac-Case online and noticed something that appealed to me. I wasn't sure if it would work with the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, so I sent them a message via Twitter (@MacCasePortable) and they responded within a few hours. From there, they responded to two more of my concerns within hours. So I was off to place my order online and was excited to see upon checkout their option to use Apple Pay. It only makes sense right? How are you going to sell Mac accessories and not accept Apple Pay, the single most secured form of payment in the world?

The very next day, I received an email with shipping and tracking information for a fast USPS delivery. Impressed again! Arrival day. I was very surprised to see and feel such a quality product. The pictures on their website and the ones posted here do not give this protective sleeve it’s due justice. In my opinion, the quality of this protective sleeve exceeds anything else out there. The 13 inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar fits into the sleeve very nicely. It's not a tight fit nor is it a snug fit, but it’s a comfortable fit. When I was told that it wasn't going to be a snug fit like I was used to having with protection sleeves from Incase, I was a little worried. There's very little movement inside the sleeve, and in fact, the comfortable fit allows for easy entry and removal of the MacBook. The padding and protective edge guard is simply wonderful and the cloth inside it Is very soft.

So if you are looking for an awesome protective sleeve to fit your MacBook Pro with Touch Bar - look no further.

#HowTo Keep You and Your #Photography Gear Safe While #Traveling, #Camping and #Hiking

 
  • Get Insurance: if your able to get insurance - just do it. I have a policy that's $55.00 a month and covers $15,000 in gear away from home.
  • Purchase a Quality Backpack: lot of camera backpacks make it difficult for theft. For example, some open from the back, so you have to remove the bag in order gain access to your gear
  • Aside from protection from the rain, a waterproof cover can be a deterrent. With a cover pulled over the backpack, the pockets and zippers are not accessable. It would also help that the cover isn't branded with a name associated with photography gear.
  • If your not wanting to use a rain cover, you could maybe use small hooks or clips. This way you can clip together some of the zippers on your backpack. I use S-BINER® SLIDELOCK (see image above), which can be purchased from REI. My backpack is an Ajna made by Fstop.
  • To allow yourself to concentrate on your shot, and to not loose your gear. Simply wear your bag while shooting or safely place it under your tripod. Also, make sure everything is closed and zipped up.
  • Whenever your sitting at a restaurant, place the strap(s) of your bag underneath the leg of the chair. If you can also place the bag under the table - Great!
  • Do not leave your gear or bag in plain sight in your car. Just because your windows are tented does not mean equipment should be in plain sight. Broken windows on a rented car will mean huge loss in time and bad headache.
