How is that? Thought it looked good as it has a pocket in the front. Is there any padding inside? Add some additional pictures if possible

Now that I stretched the leather by using the smart cover, the mini slips under garvity without the smart cover. However, I recall that the mini without the smart cover was fairly snug when the sleeve was brand new. I did not test slipping without the cover when new so it's hard to say. You may be ok if you don't stretch the leather.

I bought one that looked exactly like this when I got my first iPad, used it for my 2 and 3 also. So I sought out the same exact design for my Mini. Only found it for the Nexus 7 but it fits just fine. Even with a smart cover on. BUT it's a tight/sticky fit with the Smart Cover attached because of the slightly tacky nature of the cover material.

Thanks, I might have to order one. I love the dodo case one I just got, but the ipad slips out very easily.

I had looked at one from Fabric Horse which I really like, but I want to see better pics or even a video review and can't find anything. I emailed the company about getting one for a mini and got no reply.

I'm just curious. I promise i'm not trying to argue with you about your opinion.
I'm extremely particular and anal when it comes to design and aesthetic.

I want my Apple products to match too. I would only dress my iPad mini with Apple's Smart Cover; having anything else on my iPad mini would cheapen it.

I've purchased the Hard Graft iPad mini sleeve:



which also functions as a stand:

I ended up get Sleeve from nedrelow instead, it made from Wool texture like with reasonable price, $19.- (Minimum depends on color)

Cool sleeve. I like the dark gray.

Smack a Burberry sleeve on it. Makes it expensive!

Until you get your slip case/sleeve

A 6x8" shipping envelope lined with bubble wrap works fine. Scratch protection and considerable drop protection. Also disguises the mini.

Got two for $1 at the Dollar Store!

I am waiting for picasso labs to make their sleeve for the ipad mini. I emailed Alex already and he said that he is working on one and it should be available soon. I am pretty excited, just wish that there was more information available.

The person who makes these has like a million designs and their are about a million other people on etsy who make a million other versions... to me it seems you get something higher quality and more unique for the same price as what I am finding online.

I will only use the sleeve when I throw my iPad mini in a bag, otherwise it just going to be the smart cover.


Thanks for the link - just ordered this one :-)

I had a sleeve that I used for the Kindle Keyboard (generation 2) that fits the ipad mini like a glove.....sans "Smart Cover"! It's got a nice felt interior and won't scratch the iPad. I don't know if they are still available or not. Here is a link to it on Amazon. I plan on using it when I travel till Incipio makes a Smart Feather back cover for the mini. The Smart Cover & Smart Feather back combo was perfect on the iPad 2.

Size: It's a perfect fit so there is zero movement in the case. If I stand my i5 up in the front pocket the zipper cuts right through the numbers on the time.

F/F: I really like the fake swade look and feel. I can't speak to durability but I have never had issues with Casecrown so I imagine this will hold up as well. The padding is enough IMHO. If I push on the side when the mini is in there it has a good amount of "give". The tabs for the zipper are large, a bit large for me but not offensive. They are slightly curved which makes them easy to grasp.

Price: Picked it up off the Bay for $14 with free shipping.

I really dig the case and am so glad I ditched the smart cover. I hated that thing!

That sleeve would work out real well and I'd just slip the Mini into the carry case I bought. It doesn't look like they are in stock though at Amazon.

Yea, it really does work well. It provides good "hard shell" protection when stuffing the mini in my laptop bag. The reason it works so well is the dimensions on the mini are almost identical with the Kindle 2. The mini's dimensions are just a "hair" smaller all around. So the mini slips in & out of the case easily while still providing a snug (not tight) fit. I'm glad I hung onto the Kindle case.

Thanks for photos, looks good. Last question, does the front pocket stretch to hold the cable and charger? Hoping that it would not be too tight where it's pushing back onto the screen. Guess you can make sure the mini is in with the screen facing the back but would be great if it fix well together.
