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.

Proporta Leather Sleeve for iPad 2

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 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.

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!
