    Just picked up an iPad/netbook sleeve at Dollar Tree. It was just $1, so I just thought why not. And so my surprise, it fits pretty well. It's a little loose, but not too loose, so those of you with Smart Covers, this sleeve could complement it very nicely. There's no soft lining on the inside, so it's an all around neoprene sleeve, inside and out. But for $1, it's basically a steal.

    Just thought I'd let you guys know. :)

    Thanks for the tips. I bought one also....

    Really can't beat for a $1! This will be my temporary 'protection' until my ultimate case is available.

    Cheers!

    Good deal, but is the inside padded with anything, or is it just neoprene as well?

    It's just neoprene inside as well. But for a dollar, I can't really complain. Lol

    Exactly the CaseCrown sleeve

    I guess I paid $5.17 more for the CaseCrown logo sewn on.

    Hmmm. I see an Ebay money making opportunity here.

    I bought one of these this morning. After trying it out once, I don't think I'll be using it. The neoprene (if that's what it is) isn't very elastic, it's kind of "tough". So, when I tried to put my iPad in it with the smart cover attached, I couldn't do it without putting a lot of stress on the smart cover hinge, which felt like it could easily snap free or rub against the iPad edge in the process.

    I also have ghost armor on my iPad, and I found myself worrying that the sleeve would start peeling up the corners of the GA. So for me it's not a great solution.

    Anyway, for $1 I have no regrets.

    Yeah, the material is kinda tough and it takes a little effort to pull the corners up and over the device as compared to the $5 sleeve that was mentioned in another thread that I purchased, which feels like it was made with a better material and the corners were much easier to pull over since it was more elastic.

    Yeah, I had that Kensington sleeve on my iPad 1. Unfortunately I sold it with the iPad. That one might be a little easier to work with.
