What case/sleeve do you use for your X220?

So I was hunting around for a good, padded sleeve to use for my x220. It is a little difficult because the size is kind of non-standard and I don't want a case that isn't fitting well and is either too small, or flopping around. I looked around on lenovo's website and saw theThinkPad 12W case

 

http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:item.detail?...

 

but the very first review was specific to the x220 and said:

 

"don't buy this for your brand new x220. for such a nice laptop, you would think lenovo could make a case that's dedicated to their top x model. this kind of fits width wise, and has about 3 inches extra in length, leaving plenty of slop. save your lunch money and spend it on some generic case. carrying a laptop in a floppy case not designed to fit looks silly, even with the thinkpad brand logo on it."
So I figured I would ask the community, what sleeve/case do you use?

I've had it for my T61.  I'm going to get it for my x220 that I have received today.  Superior material & quality.  Custom snug fit for your laptop.  A little pricey, but totally worth it for such an expensive laptop.  Check it out!  :]

I agree the Lenovo sleeve is awful.  I got suckered into that one.

 

Although I'm not normally a big Targus fan I found a resonably priced sleeve that fits almost perfectly

I use the bag that came with my old 14.1" ASUS laptop. It's a bit roomy - that much more space to carry other stuff

Re: What case/sleeve do you use for your X220?

I have this exact sleeve (51J0476) and it fits like a glove on my X220 Tablet with extended battery (6-cell).

The extended battery is mentioned in the description so if you have a 4-cell battery then you will have an inch or so of space.

 

Note: I'm not sure if the extended battery is the same on the non tablet X220, if it is I definitely recommend the sleeve.

I thought the ThinkPad branded 15" sleeve was pretty nice as far as sleeves go. The only thing I expect out of sleeves is scratch-protection, though.

Re: What case/sleeve do you use for your X220?

I like to use bag from Crumpler (http://www.crumpler.com/). It doesn't look like working bag, and that's why I like it. I don't use a sleeve for my X220 but the Moderate Embarrassment fits well with my X220 (+some small space for something else)

Re: What case/sleeve do you use for your X220?

I've not had much luck. Lenovo is no help.

 

I'm currently making do with Ativa Mobil-IT Slip Case from Office Depot, which works pretty well, except not enough room for all the items I want to carry. (Looks like this except smaller.)

Sumdex Classic Metrobrief Lite Computer Notebook Bag has the pockets I need, but is so big the X220 slops around inside. I'm thinking of solving the problem with some extra foam padding.

I use the CaseLogic 12" Netbook Attaché and the x220 fits like a glove, with room in the side pouches for a charger and various other items:

Re: What case/sleeve do you use for your X220?

I use an old Sanwa strike absorb sleeve. It is old, it doesn't fit perfectly, but it is working. I am OK with working.
