Timbuk2 Freestyle Messenger Bag for iPad and iPad 2 is more than just an iPad bag. It features a sewn-in iPad sleeve, but it also has multiple inner pockets, so one can carry several items around, without needing an extra bag. It fits the iPad 2 with Smart Cover or other similar case. The iPad 1 will fit naked or with a very thin case, so you’d better check the size if you want to use it with a bulkier case.

G-Form iPad Extreme Sleeve

Did you ever wish your iPad resisted a bowling ball falling over it?

Did you ever wish your iPad resisted a bowling ball falling over it? With the G-Form iPad Extreme Sleeve that is possible: the G-Form team tested it in lab conditions and proved the iPad inside an Extreme Sleeve doesn’t “care” about a 12 lb bowling ball dropped over it from 3 ft height, while the iPad in a normal rigid case, although still functional, gets cracks all over the screen. The video is interesting, you can watch it here:

Isn’t that impressive? People on the go, as well as those working under severe conditions, will surely appreciate this kind of protection for their iPad. The technology used in the iPad Extreme Sleeve is proprietary to G-Form and it’s called PORON® XRD™. This material is soft, flexible, waterproof, and it has excellent impact-absorbing properties, even in case of repeated impacts. G-Form is an important player in the impact protection market, developing products that make tough sports safer.

G-Form iPad Extreme Sleeve Features:

G-Form iPad Sleeve is available in yellow or black

G-Form iPad Sleeve is available in yellow or black

  • Excellent impact absorption properties
  • Excellent protection: the interior is made from a strong, durable and soft fabric
  • Flexibility: unlike other impact-protective cases, this one is not a rigid case, it’s a flexible sleeve, similar to a glove with hard shell parts
  • Durability: PORON® XRD™, the material this sleeve is made from, resists to repeated impacts, without changing its properties over time
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Easy maintenance: the material is easily cleanable
  • The G-Form Extreme Sleeve fits both iPad and iPad 2. The iPad 2 fits even with a Smart Cover on. The iPad 1 fits without any cover. The zipper has a smooth finish and it is designed to stay out of the way, so the iPad doesn’t get scratched when inserted or removed from the sleeve.

    The G-Form iPad Extreme Sleeve is available for pre-order now on the G-Form website. At $60, it looks like a good investment, even if it doesn’t look as sleek as other iPad cases.

Why are Designer Sleeves better than normal iPad sleeves? Well, they are not better, they are just more colorful and eye catching.

These iPad sleeves cost less than $30, good price, taking into consideration their quality. They are perfect for everyday use, travels or simply storage of your iPad to keep it protected from children or pets. It seems they fit better the iPad 2 than the original iPad for which they are a bit too snug, making zipping around corners quite tight.

If you have experience with Designer Sleeves, please give us a short review to help our other readers decide if they want one, a few of them or none. Thank you.

STM Bags iPad Jacket

Unlike many iPad accessories, this STM Bags jacket fits both iPad and iPad 2. It’s a very small bag, great for carrying your iPad around, but with very limited storage space. If that’s what you need, you can have a stylish, durable and protective bag with room for your iPhone or for your headset for less than $25.

It’s funny, this jacket solves the man purse or “murse” dilemma: “how do you carry an iPad in a way both practical and masculine?” (topic tackled in a New York Times article, where STM messenger bags are described as the perfect solution for carrying your iPad in masculine style).

 

STM Bags iPad Jacket Features

  • Durability: the bag is made from water-resistant, durable nylon
  • Protection: the bag is padded with high density foam and the interior is lined with a soft material
  • Comfort:
    • removable and adjustable shoulder strap
    • quick grab handle
    • zippered front pocket for cables
    • slider pocket for the mobile phone

The STM Bags iPad Jacket fits the iPad in the Apple original case, as well as the iPad 2 with the Smart Cover attached. What’s cool about it, is that you can carry it around without people suspecting you have an iPad inside. This is awesome, especially while traveling, as tourists are so many times perceived as easy targets by local burglars.

Order yours on eBags right now, then come back here and let us know what you think of it. Thank you.

Abee Aluminium iPod Touch Case

The new iPod Touch is one of those personal gadgets you want with you when you travel. Thanks to its WiFi function, you can connect to the internet, search and book hotels, find information on the local weather or find your way on the map. Just because it is so useful in such tough conditions when you’re most probably overwhelmed by bags and tired, chances to drop your iPod Touch on concrete are very high. Abee Aluminium iPod Touch Jacket Case is very solid and padded with a seat cushion shock absorbent. It gets fixed on the iPod with four screws, so it won’t fall off, even if you drop your iPod on the floor.

As you can see from the photos, the case provides excellent protection for the corners of the iPod, as well as for the screen. Abee Aluminium Jacket Case is compatible on with the latest iPod Touch model, iPod Touch 4, which was released in 2010. The case has a cutout for the back camera. It is available in six colors and it costs almost $150 USD. You can see more details or buy it here.

If you got an iPad and decided not to upgrade to iPad 2, you may be a bit frustrated because accessories for the new iPad 2 are so cool! Speck thought about this when they came up with the Candy Shell Wrap for the original iPad. It looks and feels like the iPad 2 Smart Covers from Apple, with its removable flip-close front cover that folds into a stand for typing or watching movies.

The Speck CandyShell Wrap provides excellent protection, thanks to its special hard-shell design with rubberized soft interior lining. This lining is a very effective shock-absorber, so it might save your iPad’s life in case of accidental drops. Buttons are protected by little covers, so the dust won’t get inside.

The removable front cover folds into a stand

The flip-back panel allows using the iPad together with the dock and keyboard. The front cover has two hinges which enable folding it into a stand, with multiple viewing angles. We wonder how many times we’ll be able to fold it before it breaks, but only time will tell, so it’s all good for now.

This iPad case is available on only one color, DarkLord Black. It is made from TPE and Polycarbonate and it weighs 14.8 oz.

Have you got one of these cases for your iPad? If not, you can order it on Amazon. After you get it, we’d love to have your review here, on our website.

If you’ve got an iPad 2, you may want to take a look at the younger sister of CandyShell Wrap, the Speck PixelSkin HD Wrap for iPad 2.

PixelSkin HD Wrap for iPad 2 is one of the newest Speck iPad accessories. It is inspired after Apple’s Smart Cover, but it is more than a simple cover: it’s a full case. There will be many iPad 2 owners who will welcome this case, because we all fear getting our iPad scratched.

Slim-fitting and protective, PixelSkin HD Wrap for iPad 2 features a very nice glossy-mate finish and bright colors which will surely attract looks. The front cover uses micro-suction to stay closed. It folds into a stand when needed, exactly like Apple’s Smart Cover. The case has not been released yet, but as far as we can see from the photos, there will be openings for all ports, controls and camera, so the iPad will be fully operational while inside the case.

According to Speck, the PixelSkin HD Wrap for iPad 2 was inspired by the CandyShell Wrap for the original iPad. We believe both of them were inspired after the original Smart Covers from Apple, but we can understand there’s no point in reinventing the wheel. Speck’s iPad cases come with several improvements such as the rubberized inner lining and the hard-shell design.

Would you buy the Speck PixelSkin HD Wrap for your iPad 2? You can check it out on Amazon.

Grove iPad 2 bamboo skin - perfectly compatible with Apple's Smart Covers

If you saw our post about the Grove Bamboo iPhone 4 cases but you were looking for an iPad case, you can smile now: Grove also makes cases and skins for iPad. Actually they make cases only for the iPad 2, but you can get your iPad 1 a very nice bamboo skin from them.

Bamboo is a great choice for an iPad skin because it’s durable and lightweight and because it can be really thin, yet protective.

Grove bamboo iPad skin features:

  • it is made from real bamboo
  • it is extremely thin: only 0.025″
  • it is compatible with the “Smart Covers” from Apple
  • it can be either plain or laser-engraved
  • it attaches on the iPad with 3M adhesive which leaves no residue when removed

You need to take care, in case you choose to remove the skin and to reuse it, that it might crack. Grove gives no guarantee the skins resist to removal.
Here are a couple of patterns from the Artist series:
