I carry my 17" MBP in my laptop pannier, into which it just fits in portrait orientation. I'd like to protect it with a slipcase, but I don't want to have to take the slipcase out of the pannier to get at the laptop. Is there a slipcase on the market that opens at the side?

I've certainly seen them around the place, I've got a portrait one myself.

How about this?
