Available for 11”, 13”, and 15” MacBooks, Tucano’s Stand Up Sleeve Cargo ($50) is one of the more ingenious laptop cases we’ve seen in some time. Although it’s called a sleeve, it’s actually a zip-open case that stays on your computer even when it’s in use, with clear plastic bands holding the MacBook’s top and bottom corners in place. What sticks out—literally—is a special part on the bottom.
Stand Up Sleeve Cargo’s lower half includes a Smart Cover-inspired stand that lays flat across the case when not in use. Folding the four columns up—they hold in place with Velcro—allows you to raise the back end of the computer by an inch or two, providing a more comfortable typing angle. Black and grey models are available.
