    Thanks for reaching out to us about this DoveSonation

    I just received my 14" MBP and I'd say the 13C is a good fit for it. Pic below. I know from talking with Kat and Cody that your particular 13C is on its way back to us, so once it arrives, I'll try it with my 14"... maybe it was just an off one?!

    The problem with that is that the Cache sizing chart (at https://www.tombihn.com/pages/dimens...pecs#fit-guide ) has an outdated description for the 13C: "13C (Pre-2017 13" Macbook Pro or iPad Pro 12.9")". Hard to know what you're actually getting if you order that.

    Saves money in the long run and it doesn't hurt to have an inch or two of slack in the cache. It gives you wiggle room for protective cases, in fact.
    That's what I did. I got the 15C to fit a 14 inch laptop and there is wiggle room for notebook and business papers and thin folder, also accommodates my 10-11 inch and 13 inch ipads. More importantly with some wiggle room it's easier to take out and put in the laptop and ipads. A snug fit takes more effort to move the laptop in and out. This is OK for me as the laptop doesn't swim around in the cache. Just make sure you measure your items and check against the specs on TB website.

    If this is the intended size, it errs on the side of too loose, imho, my 14" MacBook is swimming inside it, especially in terms of thickness, there's a big open air pocket on top of the computer, eating up space inside the backpack for no reason. I'll reach out to Tom Bihn's support team.

    Welcome to the forums DoveSonation Information on tightness of fit for the new caches is useful to have, since you’re correct that the design of the caches from a few years ago tended to be tight compared to slightly earlier times. Because of the wealth of diffère cache models, and the custom of identifying them with a particular model and release year, these features are hard to track without the inputs from current forum members.And I know there’s a lot of interest in the Cache for 14” MacBook, since this a brand new release.

    Thanks, Darcy. I did sign up again, and hopefully this time I'll get an order in before they sell out.

    And sold out before I got a chance to order one? 😱

    It was on the restock list on the blog post, so it does look like it sold out. You can always contact Customer Service to confirm and/or see if someone cancels one... Lately, once something is sold out, any cancels or returns are usually listed at a later date as a limited quantity restock
