Whatever MacBook Pro you've got, you've probably spent enough on it that you don't want to risk it breaking - and don't mind spending just a little more to keep it safe.
There's no shortage of companies out there that make protective accessories for MacBooks, from laptop bags and rucksacks to sleeves, covers, and cases that clip on directly, and plenty of them do their best to be just as stylish as the Mac they're protecting.
This transparant, minimalist clip-on case from Moshi should keep your MacBook safe without compromising on its style. It offers lightweight, hardshell protection, and it's quick and easy to snap on and off without blocking any of the laptop's ports.
The bottom half also includes a gap for ventilation, and raised rubber feet - not only aiding with cooling, but also offering a little bit of protection for whatever surface you have your MacBook on, so you won't scratch your coffee table with it. It's available for both sizes of MacBook Pro, with a slight price reduction for the smaller model.
Incase Icon Sleeve for MacBook Pro
- Buy from Apple
Not all laptop sleeves are created equal, and the Incase Icon is one of the good 'uns. It "incorporates advanced Tensaerlite technology," so you know it means business - which essentially means it's really good at absorbing impacts and protecting your laptop from damage.
There's a magnetic snap enclosure along one of the short sides which is how you get your MacBook in and out, which has the dual benefits of being convenient to use, and avoiding the risk of scratching your laptop with a zip, which would sort of defeat the point of using a case in the first place.
Speck Presidio Clear case for 2016 MacBook Pro
- Buy from Speck
This is a smart clip on protective shell case from Speck. It has rubber feet on the bottom to stop slipping on surfaces and the clear design means you can still enjoy your MacBook Pro's beauty.
With gaps and access to all ports, it's a good choice and sometimes much more convenient than carrying it around in a separate case.
Caseable Laptop Sleeves
- Buy from Caseable
Not only does Caseable offer a variety of different designs for its laptop sleeves, it also lets you create your own. So if none of the existing designs do it for you, you can use their online tool to create a completely custom, unique design.
The good news is that their neoprene sleeves are great quality too, so they're not just about looks. We've linked to their 15-inch selection above, but they also have a full range of 13-inch MacBook Pro sleeves to choose from too.
Speck Ruck Backpack
- Buy from Speck
Speck may be best known for its clip-on smartphone and laptop cases, like the one featured above, but it also produces a small line of larger bags.
One of those is The Ruck, a 28-litre rucksack that should fit any laptop up to 15in - including any model of MacBook Pro - in its dedicated, padded laptop compartment.
There's also a separate padded section for a tablet, and a variety of other pockets and pouches for your other gadgets and gear. The straps are all padded with a mesh material, and the bag is available in grey (pictured) or khaki.
Incase Icon Pack Backpack
As well as the sleeve in this article, Incase makes a solid, all-rounder of a laptop bag. Owners of either the 13 or 15in MacBook Pro could be persuaded.
It's a pretty big backpack, but that means you can fit your computer and all possible accessories in there for a comfortable carry all day. Organisation pockets mean you can safely carry flat documents as well as chuck in all your chargers and gear.
There's even space for an iPad with a side-access pocket, and a discreet slot to feed a power pack cable from inside to charge something in a side pocket. Fully featured indeed.
Amazon Basics Laptop Sleeve
If you're on a budget (after presumably spending every penny you had on the Touch Bar MacBook itself), then look no further than the Amazon Basics laptop sleeves. They come in a variety of sizes and five different colours, and offer really solid laptop protection for less than a tenner.
They're aren't any special features or slick designs here: just a basic laptop sleeve, though there is a flap on the inside of the zip to keep your laptop safe from scratches. If you don't need any bells and whistles, this case will have you sorted.
Inateck MacBook Pro Case
Available in both 13- and 15-inch sizes, and in a choice of two colours, the Inateck MacBook Pro cases are some of the most attractive you can get without spending too much. The case is made of high quality grey felt, with a flannel lining to keep your laptop scratch-free. It's also mould-resistant, in case you were worrying about that.
There are a couple of pockets that can carry some slim accessories like notebooks or your phone, while you'll also get an extra matching pouch that will carry bulkier peripherals like the charger cable.
Thule 15in Gauntlet Bag
If you feel the need to protect your MacBook Pro from anything up to and including a tank (well, maybe not quite that extreme...) then you might want to invest in Thule's Gauntlet bag. We've linked to the 15-inch version above, but it's also available for 13-inch MacBooks. Either way, you're getting a rugged, rigid bag that offers plenty of protection.
You have the choice between top handles or a removable shoulder strap, and the spacious design leaves plenty of space for any other gadgets and accessories you need to lug around with you. The clamshell design has also been set up so that you can use your MacBook within the bag when it's open, so there's no need to keep taking it in and out.
STM Radial messenger bag
This STM messenger bag is designed to carry any laptop up to 15 inches, so will happily fit either a 13-inch or 15-inch MacBook Pro - though obviously the latter would have a snugger fit.
The Radial uses a combination of a suspended sling and additional front and corner padding to protect your MacBook from any knocks or impacts, so you don't have to worry too much about dropping the bag or setting it down too roughly. It's also water-resistant, features adjustable straps, and a cable management system to keep all your accessories and peripherals neatly organised.
Woolnut MacBook Pro 2016 15in Sleeve
- Buy from Woolnut
Woolnut, a small Swedish company that specialises in leather MacBook sleeves, is one of the first companies to design a case specifically for the dimensions of the 2016 MacBook models. You can buy the sleeves in two colours (Black and Cognac) for either a 13-inch or 15-inch Touch Bar MacBook Pro.
At the time of writing, Woolnut has entirely sold out its initial stock of the cases, but promises more are on the way soon, which is really just a sign of how in-demand these high quality leather cases are.
