Whether you're going to fork out and get a proper cover or case for your iPad depends on just how much you're likely to use the device itself and in what circumstances. I would hasten to add at the outset that although there are many cases which allow for usage while it's in it, such as snug fit and access to the buttons, this really is more about a protective carry case that it can slot in and out of.
The majority of the case features a soft protective foam zippable soft fabric cover. Visually, it is ribbed, and the stitching is very professional and of a high standard. This has durability and as a transporting case for your ipad it is something I would highly recommend. One side is covered with the rib design, whereas the other has two leather pads, one on the top and one on the bottom. This adds to the design and makes the product look rather professional.
What we're essentially looking at here though is something more akin to a laptop bag rather than a protective case from which you can still operate the device, which is what most people will be looking for. You can still use it when it's in the case, as the zip allows for nearly full access in this respect, although it's cumbersome and restrictive.
Retailing at around the £20 but often available at a hefty discount, the important thing is to consider what you're actually getting this for. If you're looking for something that allows you to still use the iPad whilst giving it protection, then look elsewhere. If you're looking for a case that allows for safe transportation, then the padded effect of this should give you comfort - it might take up a bit more room, but it's of quality design that rings true to form for Port Design. Recommended, but be careful what you need to use it for.
My friend was complaining a lot that he cannot find the perfect sleeve for his iPad 2. One day I was browsing the internet and I came across this Port Designs Berlin sleeve. I showed pictures the pictures too my friend and he liked it a lot. He had birthday in two weeks so I bought it to him as a gift. The delivery was quite quick and in about a week his iPad sleeve arrived.
The case fits on iPad 1, iPad 2 and iPad 3. It comes in black color with a small "P" logo on the bottom of the sleeve. The inside of the sleeve is red. I tested the case on my own iPad 3 and it fitted perfectly. The zip around opening allows easy access to the iPad. It is a little disappointing that there is no carry handle so if you are making a longer trip you still need to put your iPad in some other bag. But overall the sleeve is very solid and the design very unique. Nowadays when are on market thousands of iPad sleeves is quite hard to find something standing out but this case proves that it is worth to invest the £13 for it!
My friend was very happy with his present and is using it on daily basis. After my initial experience with this iPad sleeve I bought one for myself as well. Would definitely recommend to anybody as long as you don't need a carry handle!
Note: This sleeve is designed ONLY for Apple iPads.
