Product Description

The idea for this product was born when a Built customer-desperate to create a laptop sleeve of his own-ripped out the middle seam of the Built two bottle tote. Composed of extra-thick durable neoprene, it cushions and protects your laptop for maximum protection and safely slides in and out of your briefcase or luggage with ease. Perfect for business travelers and urban nomads alike. Best of all, slide it in and as it conforms to the size of your computer, its unique bone shape creates an instant built-in bumper system for extra protection. Its Shark Gill Grips on the sides makes gripping and handling slip-free.

  • Product dimensions listed are exterior dimensions at widest point (without packaging
  • Extra thickoversized laptops may not fit well
  • Patent pending Hourglass Shape and stretchy material allows the sleeve to fit a range of models and shapes
  • Proprietary hourglass design stretches for custom fit
  • Made from 5 mm wetsuit grade Neoprene

Customer Reviews:

  • Fits 17" MBP
    My only concern was if it would fit my 17" MacBook Pro. It fits perfectly so put your mind at ease if that is your question.

  • worth the money
    Very worth the money. protects well, fits the HP laptop really well. A little tight/difficult to get the laptop out sometimes, but it's not a problem...more info
  • Great quality ... but my Toshiba barely fit
    This sleeve is extremely well built and I would absolutely love it if it fit my 17" Toshiba a little better. I could get my laptop in (and out of)the sleeve but it took some effort. Once in, I loved the look and feel and how it made me ... feel like my laptop was protected. Just ... a little too tight. Love the quality, though!...more info
  • Doesn't really fit
    This laptop sleeve doesn't really fit 17 inch Dells at all. It's great for my 14 inch laptop....even has room for all the wires and other such paraphenalia. But, don't buy it for your 17-inch....more info
  • Beware if you have a widescreen 17"
    I would have rated this higher if it in fact fit my Toshiba 17" Widescreen Laptop. According to the dimensions it should have fit but doesn't. I'm sure that it would work great for smaller screens....more info
  • Awesome
    I bought my sleeve in order to turn my favorite "messenger bag" into an optional computer carrier (for bike commuting). It works great for that, as would wadded-up newspaper, a towel, or a large serving of popcorn, as padding is the key. This provides that. What I discovered is that a padded sleeve this one provides the best way to transport your machine when a full blown laptop bag is too much. Relying on a fully charged battery, I have used my excellent Built NY sleeve to take my laptop along on flights, and I do so with confidence in the security of the machine (and going through security is a BREEZE without having to dig the computer out of a bag). One warning: make sure the computer is completely off and not just snoozing, because this is essentially an artic sleeping bag and you'll probably overheat the computer quickly if it is stored with the power on.
    Built NY makes these in a range of sizes - find the right one for you and enjoy....more info
  • Works Great!
    It works great and fits very snuggly. I put it in backpack with other books and it helps my laptop from getting scratched. It was really tight at first, but as I used it, it began to stretch out a little more! Thanks A lot!...more info
  • Great buy!
    I have a 15" computer, but I read the reviews and the 17" sleeve fits perfect leaving enough free space for saving the power cord! I would recommend! ...more info
  • 17" ????
    Ibought it and my 17" toshiba notebook doesn't fit in it... I sold it to a frien whit a 15" notebook, it was perfect to his notebook...more info
  • Not to Scale
    The laptop sleeve is great quality; the problem is the sizing is way off. I had read other review of this product which said that the laptop sleeve ran small and suggested that you buy a size bigger than your computer, and I did. I bought a 17" laptop sleeve for a 15.4" widescreen laptop and the Built NY 17" laptop sleeve was still too small for my computer or to be specific it was still too narrow for my computer. Amazon lists the external dimensions as 16.9 in L x 11.8 in W x .5 in D. The 11.8 in W measurement that is listed is from the ends. The hour glass part in the middle is around 10.4 inches wide, so if your computer is wider than about 9.5 inches don't buy this laptop sleeve....more info
  • Great Looks & Function
    The Built NY laptop sleeve was a good choice for the price range. I have a laptop bag with all the pockets, sleeves and multiple zippers, but I don't always need it when carrying my 17" MacBook to a meeting or to my house. This is a great sleeve for those trips where I don't need all the accessories or the big bag is too cumbersome. The laptop fits snugly and is easy to carry....more info
  • Buyer beware
    Be careful... advertised as a 17" laptop sleeve, but was built for a 15.4." I have a Lenovo Y530, at 14.2" long, 10.3" wide, and 1.4" thick. The reason why I gave it 5 stars was because it fit my laptop perfectly, with no wiggle room, and slides into my Dakine Campus bookbag's laptop holder very well. I was going to get the 13-15" sleeve, read reviews that said to buy the 17" sleeve, and I'm glad I did. DO NOT GET THIS SLEEVE FOR ANYTHING LONGER THAN 14.5 INCHES. THIS WILL NOT FIT A 17" LAPTOP, ONLY A 15.4" LAPTOP....more info
