A while back WaterField Designs out of San Francisco sent us their iPad Suede Jacket to check out. This sleeve is intended for those looking for scratch and minor bump protection for your iPad–but in the thinnest possible way.
The iPad Suede Jacket with pocket ($25) is made out of a soft and durable material WaterField Designs calls Ultrasuede. It essentially stretches to fit your iPad very snugly, probably better than any other sleeve out there.
There are two handles along the top sides to stretch the sleeve to insert your iPad and another at the very bottom helps you remove the sleeve. There’s also a pocket on the outside to hold your headphones or a USB cable, but not much more.
I was able to easily insert and remove my third generation iPad with Smart Cover from the iPad Suede Jacket with ease. The bottom handle makes it easy to remove the sleeve. It’s an incredibly snug fit and would be the smart way to protect your iPad if you throw in into your bag or briefcase often. It also fits perfectly in the back zippered pocket of my WaterField Designs CitySlicker MacBook Air case.
Would the iPad Suede Jacket protect my iPad from a drop? It might prevent scratches but its purpose is not for drop protection.
Another bonus is the sleeve can be used to clean your iPad screen, plus conceal the fact you’re holding and iPad too. Can you tell from the picture below that I’m holding an iPad?
You can learn more about the WaterField Designs iPad Suede Jacket here–prices range from $19-25, depending on model. There are different versions to accommodate the iPad or iPad mini with or without a Smart Cover. If you want minimal and lightweight protection for your iPad, definitely consider this thin and durable sleeve jacket from WaterField Designs.
