I personally have a case made by IDEE and it fits around all 13" macbooks. It has 4 elastic straps around the corners so it opens with the Mac. The straps dont cover up the screen and are quite tight and should work with MacBook Air (I personally have a MacBook Pro 13")

Do you have a link for this company? I'm having some difficulty finding their website for some reason...
Disregard, found their website but it's not operational at the moment.

I just bought a new 11" MacBook Air. This is my third Apple laptop (Powerbook G4, 15"MBP).
For all three of these laptops I have used a booq viper case. They are AWESOME! The protect very well, are specifically designed for tha laptop and provide excellent protection (2 tours to Iraq and Afghanstan have proven that).
I also apply a bodyguardz full skin to my laptops as well.
Here is the link for the booq viper for the 13" MBA.

Well, looks like I found my solution(s)
I'm going to get the following bag:
And possibly couple it with the following hard sleeve:
The Targus bag looks extremely well designed (saw it in person today) and very purpose built, as well as pretty high quality construction. It got extremely good reviews from fellow Apple users, so I'll pull the trigger on that tomorrow and give an update. I figure I'll couple it with the Waterfield Smart Case for those times when I can't/don't want to lug the entire messenger bag around (plus, it's pretty **** stylish )MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.1), 2011 Model, I5, 128GB

for your purposes I would go for this bag:
but for my own new 13" MBA I decided for a tight neoprene sleeve + normal messenger bag :-D

I bought and returned two cases before deciding on a generic 13" CaseLogic sleeve/case. It has handles but in realiity is a sleeve, there's no room for anything other than the computer. It has a little outside pocket that could hold something small like an iPod or SD Card but that's about it. When I'm moving around campus I stuff the computer into the sleeve and the handles let me carry it conveniently. When I need to travel with more stuff I put the sleeved computer into my larger backpack.
What worried me about the other cases I looked at (and the two that I bought and returned) is that once I had the computer, charger, and maybe an external drive or iPad in it and zipped it up that the extra items were pressed against the computer. As thin as it is I didn't feel there was enough protection between the computer and the extra stuff.
There's plenty of room in the backpack with pockets on the sides as well, for extra stuff and when I've packed all my things for a trip the computer is in a padded sleeve sitting in a padded compartment with nothing pressing against the lid or bottom. Seems much safer to me than a single case.

I just purchased this case logic sleeve from B&H Photo
I'll let you know how it works out. The price is reasonable.
I'm planning on using it alone on short trips and it will go inside my old (1998) indestructible Targus laptop briefcase for long trips.

I've spent many dollars on Macbook Air cases over the past few years. While I am a big InCase fan, I am now using a pretty slim case by Level8.
This is the one I currently use. I like it because it is primarily for the standard Macbook Pro, but is very slim. The extra roominess lets me put more stuff in the pockets, if need be, as well as afford the room necessary for my Macbook Air with a hard shell.
If your Air has a hardshell installed, most cases custom for the Air are too tight to fit.
