Looking for a zippered sleeve that has a bit more rigidity than the standard neoprene sleeve. Saw this at Walmart:

Wondering if anyone has tried it out, and if it will fit an iPad 2 + SmartCover + ZUM back cover.

Thanks!

I have the same setup (smart cover + ZUM SC ultimate), and I use a case logic sleeve for 10" netbooks that works great. Ya it moves around a little, but for 12$ I can't complain ;p.

Also saw this one on amazon which looks like a good fit for our setup, but I can't vouch since I haven't tried it

Sorry I can't comment directly on the sleeve you're asking, but if its in stock at your local walmart I would just buy & try because they have a ridiculous 30+ day return policy I believe.

Thanks macbookpro45... Yeah, I should probably just get it and return if it doesn't fit. I was also considering the Just Air case:

My local Best Buy claims to have them in stock, but 2 employees and myself couldn't find them in the store anywhere. I'd rather get something I can look at in person, because I'm one of those crazy extra-picky people. :rolleyes:

I essentially want something inconspicuous, with a zipper, that would protect it in my backpack as well as hand-held for meetings outside of my building.

Just got back from Walmart with the Zip Sleeve. Everything (iPad, SmartCover, ZUM) fits quite well! There's about 0.25" of side-to-side play (meaning if you're looking at it in "landscape" orientation, iPad can move left/right just a bit) however it seems snug enough. It's 24.88 in store, and the grey goes well with my grey cover and back!

There might be enough room between the top (zipper) and the inserted iPad to Velcro/glue an elastic loop to hold a stylus. :)
