The fit isn't tight and it isn't loose either. My pencil sticks a little on the way in, but I have a Pencil Cozy on it. Without that it slides in with no problem at all - this is storing the pencil vertically alongside the top or the bottom of the iPad Pro. There is also a big pocket across the front under the flap the pencil can lie in horizontally - though I don't store it that way.Thank you!
How tight is the fit?
Also, are you able to easily slide the pencil in and out when the ipad is inside?
Their Sleeve Case for iPads has a pencil slot too.I got the Peralta Scarlett sleeve from SF Bags for my 9.7" iPad Pro and it fits my iPad with back clear case and Apple Smart Keyboard just fine. There is a slot on the outside for the Apple Pencil although I don't use that as I have their iPad Atelier accessories case. I'm sure the one for the 12.9" will work the same. It has padding too to protect the iPad. They say the Peralta line is market specifically to women but it's just a sleeve and the black one which I have is pretty much a unisex sleeve in my opinion. I don't have any problems using it. It works really well.
I have an earlier model of this case, but without the pencil slot. I might have to upgrade....Features:
- Lightly padded flap
- Angled pocket in the back
- Dedicated slot for iPad Pencil within iPad Pro Sleeves
- Shock-absorbent neoprene interior
- Vertical or horizontal orientation
- Optional Suspensions strap with non-slip shoulder pad
- TSA-checkpoint friendly (no need to take iPad out of SleeveCase)
I did look at that sleeve on SF Bags as well but personally I don't like it. I prefer the black ballistic nylon Scarlett Peralta case I got from them.Their Sleeve Case for iPads has a pencil slot too.

With the Waterfield sleevecase, the Apple Pencil slot is actually not on the back under the mesh, like some of the pictures show. There is a slot, lengthwise, on the inside where the front cover folds. If I can find a picture of it, I'll post it up. It's nice and secure. I had it but returned it because I didn't realize I'd be bothered so much by the velcro closure. If it was magnet, I would have definitely kept it.Would the Peralta or the SleeveCase fit the ipad with pen on the sides or at the top? I dont really like the idea of having the pen on the outside at all.
