Best iPad 2 Sleeves
Sleeves for the iPad 2 - Review
I surfed the internet intensively, trying to gather the best iPad 2 sleeves you could find online. I hope you'll like what I found.
iPad 2 Leather Sleeves
Leather offers a good degree of protection, looks good and ages well. That's why the Proporta Leather Sleeve is among my favorites. This leather protective sleeve comes in either black leather with a pin stripe interior or in brown leather with a tartan lining. Both offer excellent protection to your iPad 2 against bumps, knocks and scratches.
Veggie Faux Leather Sleeves
If you're concerned with animal rights, you might prefer a faux leather sleeve for your iPad 2 tablet. This Proporta case is made from a high quality leather alternative. Personally, I very much like the one with the red-on-white colour schemes, that made the Maya II sleeve popular with its iPhone equivalent.
Targus Crave Slipcase with Hand Stap
Inspired by outdoor apparel, the Targus Crave Slipcase is made of durable weather-resistant material which has been abrasion tested for durability and that features a stain-guard coating to protect its surface. The zippered side pocket provides storage for a power adapter or additional accessories. Carry handles conveniently tuck away when not in use.
Protective Sleeve with Shoulder Strap
This CaseCrown protective sleeve has a grey faux suede stitched exterior lining. It comes with a convenient exterior pocket for small accessories and a detachable shoulder strap. Its stylish, casual look makes it ideal to carry your iPad 2 with you on week-ends.
iPad 2 Neoprene Sleeve
The iLuv iCC2011 sleeve features memory foam for extra, padded protection. Its neoprene exterior absorbs shocks, helps your iPad adhere to slippery surfaces, and is water resistant. It has a soft thin plush interior to prevent scratches.
Targus A7 Neoprene Sleeve
The Targus A7 Sleeve features a heavily padded interior, the Tri-cell Cushion System, that combines additional foam padding with mesh material for ventilation. The exterior is made of neoprene with an industry-grade tarpaulin gusset around the edge which is highly durable and water-resistant. If used inside of another larger messenger bag or backpack, the A7 slipcase provides an additional layer of protection from scuffs and wet weather.
SimpleSleeve for iPad 2
Grantwood Technology's SimpleSleeve for iPad 2 is made of neoprene. Slim designed for portability, it seems to have the right balance between padding and thinness. And even the zipper is aligned so that you can match it up with the 30 pin charging port and connect the charging cable while leaving the iPad in its sleeve.
Also available in PURPLE/BLACK or BLUE/BLACK color combos.
High-Density Neoprene Sleeve
The Scratch Defense neoprene sleeve is made out of weather-resistant, high-density neoprene (it has been threaded over multiple times to achieve this). The sleeve has a sueded internal lining and an accessory pocket on the front to allow for easy storage and retrieval of your USB power adapter and any other iPad accessories.
Which iPad Sleeve should I buy?
There are hundreds of iPad sleeves available on the market, and many that are great. I tried my best to find the most interesting sleeves available today. But all that choice can be a bit overwhelming. Your first step should be to set yourself a budget. Determine how much you're willing to invest to protect your device.
And you might also want to consider this:
- Leather offers a good degree of protection, looks good and ages well.
- An alternative is "Veggie" or Faux-leather, that is usually made in a far less polluting way than most modern tanning; or hemp which is extremely durable and kind to cows!
