    Hi all I am looking for a sleeve case for my new iPad.
    I had the fabrixcase sleeve for my original iPad but over time it seemed like the fabric started looking aged very quickly.
    I was looking at the colcasac but wanted some suggestions.
    I am looking for a sleeve to place my iPad when not in use. I like using my iPad naked with no case on it. Nothing too thick or too thin.

    Thanks in advance.

    I get a lot of compliments of my Timbuk2 Plush Sleeve. Tonight I forgot that it was sitting in the chair and I threw a bag on top of it. whew. Safe !

    It actually feels very rugged when I put my iPad in it. Nice to carry.

    You could try some fabric sleeves from Etsy. There's a whole lot to choose from. These are some of the shops i like
    Nilesh and Mari. I also make sleeves myself. You can check out my shop here. There are loads of interesting and varied types. Just do a search :)

    WaterField, Colcasac both have really great stuff.

    The Crumpler sleeve doesn't seem to have gotten any attention around here, but I have the Giordano one and it is really, really great.

    I'm a fan of Manila Mac's AirMail case. I wish they made the manila sleeve for the iPad as well, but alas.

    I like my Brenthaven Prosleeve. Not too thick, but good cushion and build quality. Has a small zippered pouch on top for my stylus and a small microfiber cloth for seen cleaning.

    They have some other really nice sleeves without the pocket too.

    I just got my Rustic Case (rusticcase.com). It looks very well made, thick wool felt, has a very nice feel to it. It has just the look I wanted. Snug fit with the SmartCover on it, so no chance of it slipping out. Only down side is that it took 6 weeks to get it! Customer support is not great.

    Another vote for the Brenthaven ProSleeve. Love mine. I use a smart cover and back case and it still fits perfectly in there. Excellent protection as I've dropped my iPad several times while in the case and no damage whatsoever. They also have a lifetime replacement warranty on their products too. The zippers on mine were starting to tear a little bit and I contacted them about it and they're replacing it for free.

    not sure if this is up your alley but http://www.thegoodflock.com/ makes some nice wool fleece sleeves. i have the 3 rivers sleeve and it seems to turn a few heads when i carry it around. wouldn't say it's the best for protection though!

    Pack & Smooch

    If your down with the wool/felt sleeve idea i would go with the Pack & Smooch one hands down. Its above and beyond the other wool/felt sleeves out there.
