How many of you have been searching for the "perfect" tablet sleeve, case, pouch? Well, to me perfect means it's exactly what you want. Everything in the place you want it, made out of the leather you want, not too bulky and really different. Looks like you just found it! I have been carrying an iPad 2 ever since they came out. Have tried every case and sleeve I can think of and although many are close, none gave me exactly what I wanted.
Here's my perfect sleeves description: Very thin, light weight, needs to hold my iPad, a small notebook, a pen and a stylus, a few business cards and a file folder. Thats it. Don't need all of the other stuff. I need to be able to pull this out of my main bag and head to a meeting without making sure I have everything. An additional item you will note is the leather file folder in the background. There are times I need more than one file and sometimes its thick. So, I'll grab the leather file folder (that matches by the way) and off I go. This case and leather folder are both made of 2-3oz. tooling leather so its very thin and supple yet strong enough to protect my iPad. In this case I elected not to line it as lining only adds bulk. Instead I sueded the back side of the leather to add softness and to protect the contents. The edges of both the sleeve and leather folder are rounded and burnished adding a nice polished edge to them. The sleeve also contains a removable divider containing three slots for a few business cards. The divider is designed to separate the compartments for the iPad and notebook. Is it absolutely necessary? No, but that would be your call. Remove the divider and the sleeve becomes even thinner. You do lose the business card slots but that's not a problem on my end. I elected not to add any snaps or fasteners as again they add bulk. As well I don't want anything hard on the sleeve to press against my iPad while it's in my main bag.
With everything that I carry in the sleeve it is less than 1" thin. Empty it is 3/8" thin. As far as other dimensions it is 13" wide by 8 1/4" tall. I increased the width in order to carry a standard size file folder in a pouch on the back. This extra width also allows me to carry a stylus and a pen. You can as well carry a small charger and sync cable inside if you prefer. Now, the key to this is fairly simple. If you would like anything different about it, no problem. Just let me know and I can make it however you'd like it.
The leather file folder is fairly simple and made out of 2-3oz. tooling leather as well. I have also sueded the inside to add softness and to maintain thinness. The leather file folder is 13" by 9 3/4". Additionally it should be noted that the color of the sleeve and file folder will age to the color of the desk that the pictures were taken on. If you prefer a different color I can by all means accommodate. If you prefer the leather to stay its natural shade I can accomplish that as well by utilizing a high end waterproofing finish. The finish on these pieces are hand applied and rubbed Mink Oil. Base price as you see it is $225.00. The file folder is $40.00. Your perfect tablet case has arrived. DH
