    So I've had an ipad 2 since launch and have used a SwitchEasy Canvas cover and have loved it. Well recently I've been admiring the form factor of the mini more and more and seeing as I have little patience I ordered one. However, I didn't want to mess with the size and form factor much by putting a full case on the device so I started looking at "sleeve" style cases. I liked the Mujjo sleeve but the long ship time was unacceptable to me (again, no patience) so I found the pack and smooch Lleyn. I'm pretty excited about it.

    Just wondering if anyone else has the case and how you feel about it. Either way I'm excited about the mini. take care!

    Sorry but it was a little meh for me. I bough Pack and Smooch sleeves for both my iPad and Macbook Air based on pictures and some reviews. When I received them and used them for a few days I felt they were not very, ummm...user friendly. Felt felt rough on the skin and palms, fibers from the felt kept falling off, and it just felt like a wool sweater. I hate wool sweaters and the way they make me feel all prickly inside :)

    I'm sure it's just me. The construction is pretty good, the buttons don't contact the device directly and the sleeve does offer a layer of protection. It also has pockets for documents, cables, etc. But it's not for me, YMMV. I put the iPad sleeve on Craigslist, still have the sleeve for MBA but don't use it at all!!

    Cool thanks for heads up. It should arrive in a few days. Hopefully, I have a better experience.

    Do you use a sleeve currently? If so, which?

    I don't use a sleeve. I found I get bored with cases pretty fast, so I just buy cheap ones every 3-6 months. So far I have used the Bookbook case, Apple Smart Cover with a belkin back cover, The Ridge by Devicewear, currently using the Invellop.

    The book book was also something I was looking into since I had for my iPhone 4S. The quality is awesome.

    Two Thumbs Up!

    I have the black with tan leather Pack and Smooch for my 4th Gen iPad and I love it. I get comments on it all the time. When I update my mbp I will get another one. They are expensive, however I got my original one as present.

    I have recommended them to other people who have also been happy customers.

    The iPad version only has 1 button on it which makes it extremely user-friendly as well as preventing items falling out.
