Overall 

These are all great slings and are worthy of the title Best 16″ Macbook Pro Bag. But if you need the top pick, the Lacdo is our most recommended bag for you. It has a great balance between style, finesse and security. The MOSISO bags – both the regular version and the marble version – have the same functionality. It’s just almost the same model features except the former has 2 more pockets than the latter. The tomtoc series is known for its great paddings to absorb shock for the Mac while its tomtoc A2141 briefcase acts as a more heavy duty kind.

FAQs 

Will a 15.6″ bag fit with my 16″ Macbook Pro?

Yes it will, as long as the label has 15.6″ on it. It fits exactly like a glove.

Doesn’t Apple sell any laptop bags?

They only sell sleeves but we know you need more protection, that’s why we recommended the ones as such in the list above.

Is the Mac stronger than the Laptop?

Unfortunately, Macs are built for style than bulkiness. It’s very hard to fix the Mac if you ever drop it since its hardware is enclosed.

What happens if I drop my Macbook?

Unless you know how to operate the insides of a Macbook, consult an Apple store immediately so they will fix it for you.

Do Macbook bags protect my Mac from damages?

Yes, bags are always a great extra layer of protection. However, not all bags are built the same. Please consult our choices above if you want good security for your Macbook.
