Beautiful and works great in combination with SlickWraps!
I took the plastic covers off that protect the top and bottom of the screen since I also bought the SlickWraps (in blue - not a perfect match in color, of course, but they look great together and probably better that they are not the same color). These two products combine VERY nicely! This case allows me to feel confident when holding my MacBook Pro, especially when picking it up. It fits like a glove!l
I concur with other reviews that the latch thingy is not the easiest to open, but you get used to it and when you adjust your method for opening up the laptop you get over it.
Pay attention to the USB-C access if you decide to get one of those flush mount USB-C hubs out now (such as the Satechi) - you won't be able to use one of those with this (of course).

Best Protective Case Available
This case is amazing it is insanely durable and protective but sleek and thin at the same time. This case is very well made and seems like it will hold up for a very long time. The rubber has a seamless transition to the past and does not look like it will ever separate. This has a two layers on the plastic part with rubber under it. The latch on it is not really a clip but more a securing feature so it does not open when not wanted to. There is a matte plastic film that covers where the case is not but does not make the logo blurry nor can you tell it is really there. Overall I believe this is currently the best protective case for the new MacBook Pro available yet and high recommend as the quality is just superb.

Great protection for my Mac
This is a great case! Although no instructions were included they are really not needed. This case was so easy to install and fit my 15" MacBook Pro with touch bar perfectly. The case is well made and of solid construction. i'm glad I read other reviews before buying a case as I was not aware of the vents underneath and an issue some cases have of just covering them up. This case is well designed, lightweight, and allows full access to ports and headphone jack on both sides. The solid color "frame" of the case is complemented nicely with a transparent "window" portion of the cover allowing the Apple icon to be viewed. I could have purchased a cover for half the price, but i'm glad I didn't. An additional $20 for this quality is well-worth the expense when it comes to protecting my investment of $$$$ into my Mac.
Pros: Stylish, Lightweight, Allows for full ventilation, Full access to ports and headphone jack, Easy installation
Cons: None, unless you consider the cost to be excessive (which I don't.)

Great Shell for Price!!!
Fits like a glove. I love this shell for my 15" MacBook Pro and is solid protection for my $2300 investment. Installing shell was really easy as it just snaps right on and has enough force to keep it in place. Does not add any weight at all, does not pinch the screen, and closes flush with no gap. Not as hard as some others mention to open the lid when closed. I did however remove the top cover plastic as I wanted that part to eventually add a skin. All USB-C ports are easy to access. All of this combined with great price, fast prime shipping, and a Sunday delivery earned this product five stars. If need be I will buy again.

Great protection - Great look - Nice fit.
I spend a lot of time in racks, behind racks, working on tool box tops and make-do desks. I was looking for a serious case for my new MacBook Pro with touch bar. It's not often I find something that is what I need. This case gets 5 stars based on product look and fit. This case fits really nicely. Clips on very well. it's one of the nicest plastic covers for a laptop i've seen. It also seems to keep my laptop cooler while typing on my lap. I will update when I have the inevitable - an impact event. As for now, I'm comfortable saying this thing is worth the money. The molded corners have a really nice touch - it makes it really easy to pull out of my bag, and really easy to hold. If you've never opened the terminal app on your Mac, only use it in a coffee shop or on a desk, this is not for you. If you program IP PDU's, UPS', and routinely end up in the bowels of a datacenter, this thing is for you.

One slight hiccup... but I am definitely a happy camper now!
So I am updating my review to 5 stars.
After I posted my review, I had also sent a message to the seller about the issue. The seller emailed me back less than an hour later, apologized and said that a new case would be sent to me. A few minutes pass, I get another email with the tracking information in it for the new case. So now I have a brand new case to switch my MacBook into, and it only took a few days to get here. Needless to say, I am a very happy customer. I would highly recommend purchasing this case because the seller actually cares about how you feel about the item they are selling you. If there is an issue, they will correct it. A big thank you to the seller for doing business with a sense of integrity!
This case will not withstand the test of time. Let me explain...
I have had this case for a week. I bought the one that fits a 15" Mid-2017 MacBook Pro, Model A1707... The case fits GREAT... I really liked it when it first arrived BUT its now falling apart at the seams. Literally. See where the colored plastic outer piece meets the clear/translucent center piece? It's coming apart where those two areas meet. I have attached pictures so you can see what I mean. I have used the MacBook 5 times with the case on. It's not like we volley the computer around the house when things get dull. The computer has sat on a desk since I got it. The most its been moved is 5 inches to the left or right ON THE TABLE.. It baffles me that the case is already falling apart. I noticed it when my OCD was triggered by tiny dust particles INSIDE THE CASE. It didn't take long to figure out how they got there. The case seems cheaply made or maybe I was just sent a faulty one.
The case will be great when you get it. Enjoy the first week. That's about all you've got before the case slowly starts to self-destruct..

When I received my 2017 15" MacBook Pro (retna with touch bar) I immediately thought "I need to protect this thing." While the computer is relatively light for its power and capabilities, it is just heavy enough and slim enough and slippery enough to make me constantly worried I was going to drop it. I ordered a "sleeve" first, but it just didn't seem practical: I need a case to perminantly protect the book in and out of a protective cover or bag. I am glad I found this case and appreciate all the detailed reviews of the product. When I received the case I was skeptical that the MacBook would not retain its "slick look" with the case on - and while certainly the look changes with the case, I have to say that the fit and protection is well worth it and not as "bad" as I thought it would be. Putting the case on was a breeze. The fit is exceptional. I would definitely recommend this case to those who are looking for a perminant cover for their computer machine.

I read several reviews before making this purchase. I have had other cases for other MacBook Pros and these other cases just felt flimsy and ultimately broke shortly after putting them on the computer. This case seems to be very rugged. I like that it came in a choice of colors, although I purchased the all black case. It looks good on the computer. I will update this review should any of my opinion chance but so far so good. Very pleased with this purchase.

Not what I was thinking it would be
I just could not bond with the clear portion not being sealed into the main body of the case. This allowed the ingress of foreign materials that would eventually rub and scratch the laptop and also most likely get sucked into the fans. Speaking of the fans, The case definitely has cut out portions of air ducts to ventilate the case for the fan. Unfortunately, it is not sufficient for that task and found my computer to immediately heat up quite noticeably.
It did, however, look to offer some protection for light dings on the corners as the inside of the case has a honeycomb-like rubber "shock" padding for a lining.

Sturdy case with plenty of protection and stylish design!
I am loving this, but that's no surprise to me because this is my second i-Blason case, the other is for my Galaxy s8 and both are sturdy as hell!
This case adds only a little bit of width to the edges of my computer, so it makes zipping up my ultra slim laptop case difficult, but it should fit in a normal travel briefcase fine. The outer lining feels sturdy, like if I dropped it on it's corner it wouldn't kill my brand new 15inch MacBook 2017. The cover for the top and bottom is just a sheet of thin plastic, but that's perfect for protecting from scratches! I was also very concerned about the ventilation of this case when I bought it, but I haven't had any issues so far (will update if I do). The ports are accessible with a wire, but if you have one of those docks that sits on the side of your laptop it probably won't work. One added perk that I hadn't considered is that since there's a lip on the top screen used to close it securely, I no longer need to touch my screen to adjust it!
