Any of the above laptop sleeves will add some much-needed protection to your device, but you might be wondering exactly where to start. Those working primarily in a professional or collegiate setting might want to check out WaterField's Executive Folio. It comes in 13- and 15-inch sizes to fit a majority of laptops, with a padded and zippered main pocket. It's constructed of either ballistic nylon or waxed canvas, and there are multiple choices when it comes to a full-grain leather accent color.

Opening the Executive Folio reveals separate pouches for phone, pens, and laptop, as well as space for a legal pad if you're keen on jotting down notes. Straps can be added for easier carrying, and there's a zippered pocket on the outside of the sleeve for quick access to your smaller accessories.

If spending upwards of $90 on a sleeve doesn't appeal to you despite the high-end quality of the WaterField sleeve, you can always check out something like tomtoc's 360 sleeve (opens in new tab). Its main feature is robust corner protection, which prevents your laptop from coming apart if dropped on its corner. The main zippered pocket is soft-lined to prevent scratches, and there are two more zippered pockets on the outside for carrying smaller accessories. A handle on top makes it easy to carry on its own.
