The Ultimate SleeveCase by Waterfield designs reminds me of a great Incase laptop bag I used to keep my iBook in. It has a great look and is made of sturdy materials.
The SleeveCase is basically a sleeve type of case for your iPad. It slides into the case for travel and storage. The case has thick padding and will definitely protect your iPad. What I really like is the fold over cover that latches shut. No need to worry about the iPad falling out with the case closed up.
Another feature I really like (if you want to call it a feature) is that the iPad fits snuggly but not too snuggly. I easily fit the iPad with a case on it into the sleeve and was able to close the case without a problem.
The Ultimate SleeveCase is very customizable to what you need in a case with many add-on options. Of course, the more you add the more you pay.
Options include: a leather or lead indium trim, a vertical or horizontal orientation (no extra cost), a shoulder strap or just the clips for a shoulder strap (not in the unit I tested), and a pouch (also not in the test unit).
While the SleeveCase comes with a little pocket that would hold an iPad cable and headphones and the charger (tightly), the pouch seems like a great addition for holding the charger and more. There is definitely no room inside the case for anything but the iPad (and maybe a few sheets of paper).
So, if you add all of the accessories to your order you are looking at over $100 for an iPad case. It is a little pricey, but it is also a nice product. Even without the extras, this is not a cheap case for your iPad. However, you get what you pay for, and this is a high quality case that should last.
I really like it, but it would be nice if some of the add-ons came with the standard case – especially the shoulder strap.
