TL;DR: 17.3'' sleeves won't fit G75, looking for sleeves that will.

Hi everybody!
It's been a while since I've been here.

When I bought my G75VX I was sad to see that it didn't come with a backpack, like some other models. I have since then thought about buying that same backpack online. A year passed, and I finally did it! (here's the ebay link, for those of you who want it: LINK (http://www.ebay.com/itm/17-3-Laptop-Backpack-Bag-Case-For-ASUS-G53-G60-G72-G73-G74-SX-Notebook-/170924838097?pt=US_Laptop_Cases_Bags&hash=item27cbea0cd1#payId))
Before I had this laptop I was a big "sleeves" fan. So, for extra protection, what I've always thought about was to buy that case AND use it with a sleeve. However, as you can imagine, it's not easy to find a sleeve that will fit this giant 17.3'' mammoth (expecially because of its thickness!).
Not even the 17.3'' specific sleeves can fit it (again, because thickness).
I was going to buy this 18'' sleeve (LINK (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Port-Designs-Series-Notebook-Sleeve/dp/B003GISWYY/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1366168658&sr=8-4&keywords=Laptop+Sleeve+18)), but I let a year pass and now I can't find it anywhere. :/

Does anyone if there are specific sleeves for this laptop or know where I can find this kind of sleeves?

The one in the link looked perfect...
Ideal sleeve would be neoprene all around (with a zipper on only one side). And, of course... black. :)

PS: Sorry for the long post.

I have been having the same issue. All I have for it is the thin sleeve that came with the laptop. My backpacks I normally use for transporting the laptop are just not big enough when I have the laptop, mouse, spare hard drive and game controller. A sleeve would really help it. Please let me know if you come across anything!
