Insert Padded Sleeve

(14 reviews) Write a Review

The Insert Padded Sleeve is available in three sizes to fit more laptops sizes. This item is padded with foam and able to protect against temperature variations and bumps. The padded sleeve is made of waxed canvas and crafted in Duluth, MN.

Gotta carry a laptop but don't want a padded briefcase? No sweat, we've got you covered! Our Padded Sleeve will work in most any bag you choose to carry. The field tan waxed canvas shrugs off water, grit, and abrasion. Foam padding shields from bumps, bruises, and temperature swings while the flannel interior cares for the finish on the computer case. Measurements are for the inside opening (if a laptop measures less than 10"x 13", get the small) . All are built in Minnesota at Frost River, they're guaranteed to last and will provide a refuge for your electronics whether carried in a briefcase, pack, tote, or all by itself.

    Same Unique Frost River Quality

    Posted by Bill on Apr 28th 2022

    If you have never had a product crafted with waxed canvas you have to try it for a natural yet professional feel. I discovered Frost River several years ago while shopping for a messenger bag. I now have the messenger bag, the small sleeve for my iPad, the new medium for my 16 in. MacBook (fits great), the computer bag, carry-on bag, and the Explorer regrets. Next on the list is a brief. The Frost River added bonus is being a domestic company!!! So long as they stay domestic I am indifferent to the somewhat higher Frost River price. You should be too!

    Bought this for my wife's laptop. It is well padded and a nice size. She is able to carry her laptop around without worry about banging it up.

    Excellent addition to my Nessmuk Pack. It now works for hiking and teaching. Laptop is well protected and the sleeve provides some structure and padding to the pack.

    Insert Padded Sleeve

    Posted by David Johnson on Mar 20th 2021

    I bought this sleeve for my Samsung Galaxy Tab A7, which lives in a hard case, and it fits well. The workmanship and materials are great. The sleeve also fits my ASUS Pro laptop but could be about 1/2 inch longer. This product will provide some added protection when carrying electronics in my Frost River Carrier Brief Messenger Bag.

    I have a Frost River Pilot Brief and this works great for my 17in System76 laptop and my Apple 16in Mac Book Pro. Very well made and plenty of padding. I got the size medium. Love it!!!

    Padded Sleeve - small

    Posted by Mike H on Feb 25th 2021

    Got this to store and protect my new Macbook Air (13.3") and the small padded sleeve fits it perfectly (perhaps with a little room to spare). Well made and looks very durable. Even had a bit of water drip on the sleeve and due to the waxed canvas it beaded right on top rather than soaking in. Only minimal critique I'd offer is that this could maybe be upgraded by adding some sort of closure to eliminate the possibility of the contents falling out. But honestly it's great as it is.
