    That's the case I got prior to launch and used it for a few days before I got the Marware and Apple cases. The fit is really tight and using the flap took effort. I ended up just folding the flap back and using it as a sleeve and the top inch or so was exposed. I actually just sent it back to Amazon the other day for a refund. It's decent for $5, but i think a 10" zipper neoprene sleeve may be a better option for a few bucks more.

    I was worried about getting some of the bigger ones because I didn't want it sliding around - the reviews seemed good for the iPad. I'll try and post impressions when I get it...I was just looking for something to carry it in a backpack or bigger bag.

    Thought I'd update this and say I love the sleeve. It covers the iPad without much effort, and it exactly what I was looking for. I didn't find that I had to really stretch the case to get it to cover the iPad, it seemed to be a pretty natural fit. The form of the case makes it so you do have to pull the top flap over the iPad, but I definitely didn't get the impression that it didn't fit.

    I also got it shipped to me in a few days, so for $5.50 shipped pretty quickly it's hard to go wrong.

    Be sure and check out the Amazon page for a picture.

    I think the iPad is around 7.5/9.5 and that bag is only 7x9. I know there is room to stretch but I would rather have something made for the iPad and not a netbook.
