Secret Tablet Sleeve

Anyone know of anything like this in the US? I went to order, but $20 shipping killed it for me. Its just a sleeve that looks like an envelope, I should be able to find something, but searches for envelope and iPad seem to have a ton of results. Plus I'd like some feedback on quality of any of them.

BoxWave has something similar--the Manila iPad/iPad 2 Leather Envelope $30 from Amazon. Also the Evouni E09-0.

Thanks, I saw the boxwave sleeve, but not the evouni one. I really like the look of the padded mailer one though. Still hoping for something closer to the Undercover one.

I heard back from them, and the "can't ship to the US." Oh well, thanks anyway.

Wait a while

I did a goole search and this item seems to be only sold in Europe. But the same company makes a laptop version which is sold in the States in several places, so I think it will eventually land on these shores'

I hope someone starts to carry it in the US. But by the time the do I will probably have found some other cool case I will want instead.

Found it!!

Think Geek has it. They only show a picture of the laptop sleeve but under features describe the tablet version which you can select to buy.

Wondering if it's big enough to hold an ipad in a portfolio folder?

Got the Secret Tablet Sleeve. It is what I wanted as far as looks, but it offers almost no padding for protection. A real bubble mailer envelope would have more padding, I should have purchased one and stuck my own Velcro on it.

It does have plenty of room to hold an iPad in a folio type case, then the padding would be less of a concern anyway.

I will admit to reading this thread and thinking "I don't get it". Are you trying to hide the fact that you have an iPad? It looks awkward to place and remove the iPad in it. Finally, as pointed out, why not use an actual Mailing envelope with minor modifications? This is not a knock, I just feel like I don't understand the "use case" here.

Not really trying to hide it, I have a smart cover and a zagg leather skin on the back, I just like a simple sleeve to keep it clean in my car or in a bag and thought these looked cool. That's all.
