This fits the MacBook Pro 2016 with Touch Bar and Touch ID that was announced in October, Late 2016. However, there is about one quarter inch (0.25 inch) of space to the side and front of the MacBook Pro, when in this case (not much space, so still adequate). It seems like this will provide better protection that most of the more flexible sleeves.
If you're looking for a tank of a rMBP sleeve, look no further! I ultimately returned this sleeve as I was looking for a different/more accessible sleeve (something that doesn't require you to open or close zippers, as I like to slip my laptop into and out of my sleeve, which is stationed in my briefcase 99% of the time). With that said, I would recommend this laptop sleeve to everyone looking for a protective sleeve... with one caveat.
That caveat: this product stinks. Literally. If it doesn't then it's probably used or has been aired out before (neither is necessarily a bad thing). The only way I could describe this smell is... a heavy overwhelming chemical stench. Small price to pay in the grand scheme of things, but just know that you'll probably want to air this puppy out for a few days (maybe even a week) before using it.
This sleeve is a perfect fit for my MBP retina which I carry on a bicycle and therefore need good protection from the elements. The sides seem to shrug off water although in a downpour you might want another layer of protection. For that purpose I carry a few garbage bags along, so when it looks like rain I can wrap my computer up in garbage bags, too. The bag includes elastic straps that get in the way when zipping the thing closed so I cut them off with a pair of scissors, no problem.
October 2016 update: I bought this in February and have been using it nearly every day. Today I misplaced it and am ordering another one without hesitation.
