Sumo Sleeve: Protecting Notebooks One Day at a Time

MobileEdge Brings You the Sumo Ballistic Nylon SleeveIn a world dominated by incase, the Sumo notebook sleeve, packs quite a punch. This bag is loaded with ballistic and water-resistant nylon, a corduroy liner, hip contrast top stitching, and padded protection. A sleeve built this good also fits snugly right under your arm.

macinbag2MobileEdge brings us this heavy duty, stylish line of 13”, 15” and 17” notebook sleeves for only $34.99 each. Perfectly sized for the Macbook Pro line or your PC. I was even able to take my incase sleeve and Macbook and shove it all into a 13” Sumo for an extra kick of perfected protection.

After my incase-Sumo concoction, I tested the product in a more appropriate way. My Macbook Pro sat soundly in the grip of the Sumo. I felt as though I could have tossed that baby across the room without fear. That’s how much protection we’re talking about.

The minute you pick up the Sumo, your hands feel the layers of padding and you can go about your day knowing your notebook is safe and secure. The Sumo makes other, inferior notebook bags appear weak and wimpy.

macinbagThe Sumo may have a little extra girth, but if you’re hard on your notebooks or you’re planning a trip overseas then this is the bag you not only want, but you need. Not only is it airport friendly, but also you can easily extract your laptop without any fear of scratching it with one of those annoying zippers. All one has to do with a Sumo is easily lift the Velcro flap and voila: easy access.

Once you get inside the bag, you see that it is made from a corduroy material, making it tough and durable, yet delicate enough to protect your laptop from any scratches. It’s also just a whole lot of fun to run your fingers through. Lovely and soft…anyway…

Hopefully, their color choices and designs will become more unique and stand out a bit more. The sleeve packs a lot of of feature and it would be great to see some designs reflecting the creatively spun name of ‘Sumo’.

    Thanks for the review – thinking of using the 12 inch version of this with my alienware m11x – heard it fits well, and it’s a great case.
