Contour Design's rE-versible Apple MacBook Air sleeve is a stylish, lightweight laptop cover.

The re-Versible case for Apple MacBook Air keeps your notebook safe and only adds 153 grams to the weight

When you've invested £1,199 on a brand new Apple MacBook Air laptop simply so you can use a slower-than-average Mac with a lighter than normal design, the last thing you want to do is carry it around in a huge 2kg bag.

Which is where Contour Design's rE-Versible Sleeve for Apple MacBook Air steps in. Barely measuring more than the Air itself, and weighing a scant 153g, it is a great solution for protecting the Apple MacBook Air without compromising the weight advantage that the Air offers.

The sleeve is constructed of foam padding that's 50mm thick. The Air simply slots inside and the flap folds over the top.

The only problem with Contour's rE-versible Sleeve For Apple MacBook Air is that three members of the team took one look at it and immediately thought the same thing: "hot water bottle cover".

Maybe it's the grey plaid design, perhaps it's the snug fit or maybe it's the fold-over flap but there is something a bit too comforting about the rE-versible sleeve for Apple MacBook Air. The design seems at odds with the swish high-tech design of the device itself. It's almost keeping it safe and snug, rather than just 'safe'.


The rE-versible Sleeve for MacBook Air is a competent way to keep your new MacBook Air safe. The grey plaid design is more of a miss than a hit, though.
