ThinkPad X1 Yoga

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga is a terrific laptop, but it's also pretty darn expensive. You'll want to protect this investment when you venture out into the world, and the confines of your bag might not be safe enough. Slipping your ThinkPad into a protective sleeve will do the trick.

Sleeve's don't add much bulk allowing you to keep using your same bag, while also keeping your laptop in tip-top shape. These are the ones to get for your X1 Yoga.

ThinkPad X1 Ultra Sleeve

ThinkPad X1 Sleeve

What better way to accessorize your ThinkPad X1 Yoga than with Lenovo's official leather sleeve. The Ultra Sleeve is designed exclusively for the X1 family with a soft-touch interior and leather exterior. So it both looks awesome and provides a soft, safe space for your laptop.

The flap is magnetic for easy opening and closing, and importantly for the Yoga in particular, there's also an interior pen loop so, you know, you won't lose it when you're out and about.

It's fairly pricey for a sleeve at $50, but it's pretty much the best way to transport your X1 Yoga.

Inateck 15.4-inch sleeve with small case


This affordable 15.4-inch sleeve by Inateck is designed and marketed as the ideal sleeve for a Dell XPS 15, which also means it'll fit the Yoga X1 really nicely. The sleeve itself has a main compartment for the laptop, as well as two back pockets, both lined with soft flannel.

The inner lining material used is not only mold-proof, but resistant to wear and tear, and shouldn't scratch your expensive new laptop. Felt sleeves are a little more prone to wear and are more difficult to clean, but they're soft and will take good care of your X1 Yoga.

As well as the main sleeve, you get a smaller case bundled with it for a mouse or some smaller accessories. At around $16 it's also a steal.

Procase Sleeve Bag


This sleeve from ProCase is something of a hybrid, meaning it can be used as both a sleeve and a bag. It's got a hand strap to carry it around on its own, but it's easily slim enough to go inside your regular gear bag and protect your X1 Yoga all the while.

It's splash-resistant, so the odd rain shower won't be a problem, and the shock-proof interior has a soft lining to protect against scratches and bumps.

There's also a fairly commodious front pocket for your phone and other small accessories, and all at a great price of around $20 for the size you need.

Tomtoc Laptop sleeve


Simple and very affordable is a quick way to describe this sleeve from Tomtoc, which specifically mentions being designed to fit the Lenovo X1 family among other laptops. What this sleeve has over others though, is a flap inside that goes over your laptop and protects it against the zipper.

The outside is a shock absorbing neoprene while the interior is a soft-touch fleece material, so you're getting a snug fit and decent protection. It's also only about $14 in the size you need for the X1 Yoga and adds very little bulk when you're tossing this in your bag.
