Does anyone have recommendations for a felt / nylon (or similar) sleeve for an iPad Pro 11" with Apple Smart Keyboard Folio? Open to velcro or zippered closure.

I see a lot on Amazon but want to make sure that a) it fits with the smart keyboard folio on and b) isn't too loose (as many of these are made for a range of tablets / laptops). Bonus points if the sleeve has an extra compartment for the charger.

I'm interested in something like this:
https://www.amazon.com/MoKo-Compatible-MacBook-Surface-Release/dp/B016JOD8EA

I don't have the iPad or Smart Keyboard Folio in hand yet, so if someone who has this setup could provide the thickness of that setup, that would also be helpful! Thank you in advance.

Waterfield design, their SleeveCase with the canvas and leather is the best thing I have ever owned for my iPads. It develops a rich patina and looks like a million bucks, people always ask me about it and it makes carrying the iPad a breeze. Even though my new 11 inch Pro fits in my 10.5 SleeveCase (just a hair tight) I decided to get a new one so the fit is perfect and will be selling mine with my 10.5 to a lucky owner on Ebay... I LOVE the thing.

I have had the felt case since I had my 10.5. It had fit the 10.5 with keyboard very snugly. And it fits the new 11 just perfectly since it is a tad smaller. The case is very handy for traveling as the back pockets can also hold my phones and can rest next to me in an airplane seat.

Thanks for the intel @DoubleFlyaway and @kingalien! I like the leather options people have posted, but I think the felt fits my aesthetic more and it's hard to beat that price. Planning to order! :D
[doublepost=1542228569][/doublepost]@DoubleFlyaway and @kingalien, sorry for the additional post, but did you order the 10-11" tablet version I posted or a different size? I see a smaller 9-10" tablet version that looks like a perfect fit, but it says "This sleeve can NOT be used together with tablet case or keyboard attached." Just want to make sure I get the right one! :confused:

I got the 10 to 11. It fits the 11 with keyboard folio well.

This looks great, however I only see an option with the keyboard. Did you use it without and did it seem to loose? I’m guessing it’s ok with or without the keyboard?

Apologies just checked my order history and I ordered the one size smaller which would be a more snug fit. If it matters to you the this is the one to get https://www.amazon.com/MoKo-Compatible-Samsung-Surface-Release/dp/B01EHSKKW8/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1542239795&sr=8-4&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=moko+felt&dpPl=1&dpID=61ALzf1M2jL&ref=plSrch&th=1&psc=1
I could imagine my 11 with keyboard folio still fitting in one an inch smaller (the one kingalien got). I’m not going to bother returning this one, though. It fits easily in my bags, and my problem with the Apple leather sleeve for my 2017 was that it was too snug and a pain to get in and out, so I would rather err on the side of too big than to small. In fact, that’s how I lost my leather sleeve... it was such a pain to get the iPad and ASK back in that I wasn’t really in the habit of squeezing it back in there at the end of flights, and I consequently left it (with my pencil in it) on a plane recently. :(

Yikes @DoubleFlyaway! Sorry to hear that. @kingalien, how’s the fit with the Apple Smart Keyboard Folio on? Trying to decide between the 9-10” and the 10-11”.

Thanks so much @kingalien! This is really helpful. One last question - do you have an Apple Pencil and does it fit in the case? Based on that second pic, it looks like there might not be room for the pencil. Thanks in advance.
Don’t have an Apple Pencil but used a regular pen and it will fit with the lip of the cover showing a little bit of the Velcro. There is also a compartment that you can place the pencil in.
