Show me your iPad 2 sleeves...

    I have recently purchased an iPad 2 and have come to the conclusion that I want a sleeve case rather than a folio case like on my old iPad.

    So, sleeve uses, show me what you've got :)

    Can't go wrong with WaterField Designs


    I have the Smart Case and Wallet. Both are great.

    I use the small loop on the bottom of the SmartCase to hold my stylus.

    I've decided I like using the iPad without a case. It feels great in the hands and so light weight. So while I'm not using it, I stick it in XtremeMac's Thin Sleeve. It lives up to its name, with a magnetic flap to cover the opening and a pull tab. http://www.xtrememac.com/Products/Leather-Slip-Sleeve/Thin-Sleeve-for-iPad--iPad-2/

    I got it on sale at Radio Shack for $30. If at some point you want to add a SmartCover or shell, it'll still fit as its designed for both the iPad 1 and 2. It's faux leather wrapping some stiff cardboard with a microfiber interior, and it's really understated which makes it appealing to me. It won't save your iPad if you run over it with a truck but it will protect it from scratches, dents, and the occasional low-height fall.

    I've got many, here is the most recent one I currently use though :)
    It's a BeyzaCases leather sleeve.

    I'm using Freiwild Sleeve 9 and I love it. It's made of sheep felt in Germany. The iPad sits really tightly, doesn't fit very well with a smart cover on it though.

    Could not be happier with the Waterfield smart sleeve. Made in USA. My Waterfield bag has lasted longer than all other bags combined. Amazing quality.

    I have the STM Jacket for the iPad 2. It is very nice and has a small pocket to carry the charger. $24 too![​IMG]

    I ended up grabbing this in the Target clearance rack. A little more useful and protective than a standard neoprene sleeve.

    Is anyone using a TUCANO sleeve? I have a similar one for my MBA and am thinking about buying that one for my iPad2.

    My question is that I want to use a smartcover, is the TUCANO sleeve big enough to accommodate the iPad2 with a smartcover?

    Currently I am using Targus Hughes leather case for iPad. The price is 19.99 dollars, but it used to be 59.99 dollars. Very nice quality and it is well worth 19.99 dollars.

    I am planning on switching to SF bags though...

    SF bags are top notch.

    I wish they had black with white or silver stitching.

    Recently got this from my local store.

    I have the Waterfield Ultimate Sleeve Case because I wanted the flap over the top. I am really tempted by the Smart Case though.

    For those with the Smart Case, how well does it hold it in? Any slipping? What about with a slim cover on the back of the iPad?

    I have the WaterField Smart Case - the version to accommodate Apple's Smart Cover. When I turned it upside down, the iPad with Smart Cover would --slowly-- slide out. Was not a problem. Now I also have an Enki Genius Case on the back of the iPad plus the Smart Cover. It fits (a little tight at first) and does not slide out.

    That is what I use too. I love it. It's soft on the inside, a pocket on the back where I keep a stylus and the USB cable, and the handles can tuck into the case and you can use it just as a sleeve. Incase is always good quality in my experiences with them too.
  21. macrumors 6502

    Strange, mine is so tight that I must use the little tab to pull the iPad out.
  22. macrumors member

    More than big enough - i am using a smart cover with a black second skin case and it fits perfect.

    sleeve vs. folios

    What is the difference between a sleeve case and a folio case?

  24. macrumors 68030

    A sleeve case is just that a sleeve kind of like an envelope. You use it to store and/or carry the iPad in. When you want to use it you take the iPad out.

    A folio case is an all round cover kind of like a book cover. You use the iPad whilst it's still in the case and don't take it out. The top of the case acts like a lid that covers the screen whilst not in use.

    In general folio type cases add more bulk and weight then sleeves but they offer more protection. Essentially it's a trade off.
