If you plan on doing any sort of traveling with your iPad, you’ll need some kind of sleeve or case to carry it in. That’s where Timbuk2′s Envelope Sleeve comes into play. Here’s my first impression:
Timbuk2 has been outfitting bicycle messengers for years with a tough to destroy product; the Envelope Sleeve looks no different. Made from Timbuk2′s ballistic fabric, high density foam and a tricot liner, the envelope feels top notch. The classic three color panel design is reminiscent of their famous messenger bags.
Three big pieces of velcro secure the flap – it’s not going to open prematurely. The fit, even without the Apple Smart Cover is snug, it’s not a one-size-fits-all arrangement – it’s dialed in for the iPad. Of course, the sleeve is compatible with the Smart Cover as well, for a very snug fit. It’s snug enough to give users the piece of mind that it fits well.
Simple, classy, well-fitting are three words I’d describe this sleeve out of the box. At just $22, what’s not to love?
