Some products exude sheer quality  – from the seams, to the zips and material used. The Urbano range is one such product.

The UZRS looks absolutely stunning. It’s one of the most photogenic products we’ve ever tested. In our review, we looked over the Dark Chocolate color option, but the UZRS is available in several other colors:

  • Black
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Pink
  • Red

The optional colors look quite amazing and are naturally made of the same vintage look premium leather that our test sample is finished in. The stitching on the UZRS is a contrasting color to the surrounding leather hide and this gives a tasteful detailing to the edge of the panels that make up the sleeve. There’s a chromed, mirror finish Urbano ‘U’ on the lower right corner of the sleeve and subtly embossed into the leather itself is the Urbano brand name. All in all, this sleeve is one of the best designed products on the market. This case isn’t all about looks though, at the end of day a sleeve must offer good protection for your valuable MacBook innards.

Internal

The inside is where your MacBook meets with the sleeve. And the Urbano is very form fitting. The designers have made special care to make sure this case offers maximum shock and scratch protection, without damaging the MacBook itself – as some cases do with the unfortunate placement of zips and fasteners. There’s a leather lip around the inside of the zip to prevent the puller from marking your notebook. The inside lining is soft to touch and has been chosen because of it’s softness. This is made from a thick Velveteen Fabric and when pressed on feels soft and flexible so as to protect your notebook as best as possible.

Compatibility

The UZRS is compatible with the current line of the Apple notebooks – but we tested with our 2008 Black intel MacBook model. The UZRS fitted our test model perfectly!
