Weighing in at around 600 grams, the load is lightened significantly due to a lightweight, quilted, padded body finished in cow hide, rather than leather alone. A roomy side pocket, held in place by a concealed magnet, includes a smaller pocket for valuables such as credit and travel cards. A soft, fabric lining, with scotchgard coating, helps keeps your Mac protected once zipped up.
The Slim comes with both carry handle and adjustable, removable shoulder strap, although the strap isn’t padded for extra comfort.
Macworld buying advice
While designed for women, the Slim, especially in the non-quilted, more muted colors, could be used by any metrosexual man who wants to travel in style.
