All of the above sleeves will fit Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Extreme, and they'll provide varying levels of protection and style. If you're wondering which to choose, we thoroughly recommend checking out Waterfield's Sleevecase. Each one is handmade to fit your X1 Extreme specifically, and you can choose from ballistic nylon with micro trim or waxed canvas with grizzly leather trim.

Choose from vertical or horizontal orientation for the foldover flap, and add a strap to the purchase if you'd like to carry the sleeve case over a shoulder. A pouch on the back has room for some smaller accessories. If you travel often, it's TSA-checkpoint friendly, so you don't have to take out your laptop, and enjoy a lifetime warranty that protects against damage.

The Waterfield Sleevecase is rather pricey, so if you're sticking to a budget, Inateck's sleeve is no doubt much more attractive. You get a central zippered pocket with fleece lining to protect your laptop, and a secondary zippered pouch on the outside has enough room for your smaller accessories. It's available in three colors to suit your style, and its slim build allows you to easily tuck it under your arm or slide it into a separate bag for carrying.
