I recently purchased a Microsoft Surface tablet and I wanted to buy some sort of bag or sleeve for it straight away to protect it.
I purchased the tablet in a Currys store but, as they didn't have much in stock in the way of bags or cases that would fit and nothing for the sort of price I wished to pay, (less than £20) I walked across the car park, the short distance to PC World, Curry's sister company to see if they might have a better selection.
I first had in mind a simple slip in type of sleeve for my new tablet; I thought this would be the handiest.
On first looking in PC World it didn't seem as if they had anything more to offer than Currys that would be the right size for my tablet. The bags and sleeves for tablets were all too small but then I was directed by a helpful sales assistant to another shelf holding cases and laptop bags. Here I found that there was far more choice.
The Microsoft Surface tablet has a 10.6 inch screen and measures 11 by 7 inches. Most tablets are smaller than this and so will fit into a smaller bag.
There were a few choices here but I soon decided on the Logik Laptop sleeve/bag L11NBL12.
This case bag is made from neoprene, which is a soft, pliable yet tough material that is durable as well as water resistant. The Logik L11NBL12 sleeve is available in several colours. I seem to remember red, blue, black, purple and I think pink as well. I chose a blue sleeve. I would say it is a medium blue colour.
I thought this colour would stand out from my husband's work netbook which he keeps in a black case.
The Logik L11NBL12 sleeve cost £9.99 which was about the price I was happy to pay for a bag.
It is a really nice and lightweight bag, in my opinion, ideal for carrying around one of the larger tablets, Macbook or a netbook. The style is of a sleeve type but it has a dual zip which open and close the case to half way down the case on each side.
The inside of the sleeve is nicely lined in a soft material which helps to protect my laptop from any possible knocks and bumps.
Protective corner pads are integrated into the case internally and these hold the top two corners of the tablet nicely in place.
It is made in China.
I would say that this is a good sleeve for the price paid. There are probably better and more protective cases on the market but really this is just what I wanted; a simple and easy to open case. I would recommend it.
This sleeve holds my Surface tablet nicely in place.
