Trina Turk 15" Macbook Sleeve Review
The Trina Turk sleeve is available in two sizes- one for 13” Macbooks and one for the 15” Macbook Pro. Unlike sleeves designed to fit most laptops of a certain screen size, the Trina Turk sleeve is tailored specifically for Macbooks. Your Mac won’t be swimming in extra fabric and added weight.
Both sleeves are available three trademark Trina Turk satin fabrics - Ladybug, Crazy Botanical, and Zigzag. The 15” sleeve in this review is covered in my favorite, Zigzag. It has pretty blue-purple, gold, and black and white zigzags with black piping around the perimeter. Overall, the pattern has a hint of vintage style. The satin itself seems to be durable and water repellent The construction, too, seems to be solid. I expect that this sleeve should last for quite some time.
In front, a bronze Trina Turk plaque adds a bit of bling. It looks great, but I’m not sure if the finish will resist scratches. The bronze theme continues with two stylized zipper pulls accented by matching T’s. The zippers are almost completely covered by black binding, giving it a very clean look. They work smoothly, too. I love the attention to detail on this sleeve!
In back, a large pocket on the back covers the entire back of the bag. Lined with microfiber, this pocket has a coordinating blue-purple color. There is plenty of room for a charging cord or external hard drive inside without making an unsightly bulge.
Overall, the Trina Turk 15” MacBook Pro sleeve is bold, colorful, and stylish. It has the quality, finish, and detail expected from a designer product, while being practical at the same time.
