Has anyone seen this sleeve/case? It looks like it is still in pre-order. Thoughts? It looks nice and the price seems quite good for what it is.

Outback Solo

I am mainly looking for a leather sleeve for the Air that can fit the smart cover as well. It would also be nice if it could fit in my Tom Bihn cafe bag with my laptop. Any other suggestions similar to this for the Air that I should look into?

I just got a used travel express case for the ipad air. I had a case from them for my nexus 7 2013 when I owned one. All very good quality. I highly recommend them.

Wow. There are some great options on that site & they look very well made. Thanks muchly for the pointing the way. Only problem: deciding which style to go with. I like the Travel Express, the City Slicker and the Ultimate SleeveCase with the additional gear bag. Decisions, decisions...

I found Waterfield Designs after googling Air sleeves. They're made in the USA, and offered at a very modest price considering their country of origin. The styling is very L.L. Bean/Orvis, and those companies charge much more for comparable bags.

These bags are very much on my list of Air accessories. :)

I have a WaterField iPhone 5/5S wallet case that I use sometimes traveling. The quality and craftsmanship are very good. Not all are my style, but they have nice cases and quality covers.
