This vegetable-tanned leather portfolio by Kenton Sorenson is a perfect fit for your iPad or iPad2. It’s hand stitched with nylon thread and has a long, leather strap to keep it securely closed. Products like this provide a nice counterpoint to the modern and somewhat cold technology it is designed to protect. Beautiful sleeve in which to protect this iconic device.
Another minimalist leather sleeve for your iPad, with or without the smart cover. Made in the USA, the Tourniquet is a single thick cut of matte finish, black Horween Leather. Each sleeve features a laser etched logo with production number. No two pieces are alike, life marks and other natural imperfections of the leather will occur. Should only get better with age and with it’s generic form be useful for other ‘uses’ as well. On my wish list.

Love these beautiful iPad sleeves from Picasolab. The matte finish of the Nappa leather looks great and the individual monogram a nice touch. I prefer the version without part of the iPad showing but it’s a distinctive look as well.

This is not a brand I normally think about, except during those long walks between terminals where they always have a store conveniently located, or on the street where I see their trademark style on counterfeit goods. But the artisanal finish, hand punched and threaded details, and the distinctive braided-leather give Burberry’s iPad case a distinctive look that I can almost identify with. It looks limited and not the mass produced product that it is. Interestingly it costs more than the iPad itself.

They have a little note at the bottom stating how thick wool absorbs shock — I think I’ll take their word for it.

Taiwanese design collective Megawing resurrects this slightly over done manilla office envelope concept for their modern cross body bag. The Envelope Bag is simplistic in form but includes an extremely useful inner inset pocket with multiple pouches for your phones, pens, keys and other small accessories. It is the perfect size to fit an iPad. Largely made with leather .

Made in Italy from the same mottled virgin wool as the Milton trouser, this brightly-coloured document wallet is lined and features a silver zip and black leather piping around the seams. Suitable for documents but it is also large enough to fit an iPad. Fancy.
Available at OKI-NI.
A bit like a bean bag chair for your iPad, venerable Incases’s Lounge Case looks pretty useful if you get tired holding or balancing your iPad on your legs all day. That is until you want to take it somewhere in which case that hump on your iPad might make transporting a bit of a challenge. I haven’t used one but I assume they snap out of the plastic housing quickly and easily. I wonder if the inside material has ‘memory’. One of the advantages of the tabs or flaps their description positions the product against is that they are usually quick consistent in their position. It might be a pain if you are adjusting the viewing angle at each sitting.

I think these look like allot of fun. Happy Covers for iPad allow you to carry your iPad inside your favourite bag while protecting it from dust, scratches and dirt. There is even enough room to include Apple’s smart cover if you are so inclined. I’m sure the build quality and materials are fine and all but it’s the cute illustrations that make this convenient sleeve a great a way to transport your iPad.

This looks like it might make for a great looking case for one or two iPads for the ‘busy executive’ or bag conscious ‘fashionista’. I don’t know anything about the case because I found it on Tumblr where there is never any useful metadata or links to source, a practice that drives me nuts.
