With Christmas just around the corner and millions (and growing) iPad owners out there, perhaps a nice sleeve / case for the iPad can be a good Christmas gift. While there are plenty of options out there for smart covers and hard covers, if you want a bit of style and comfort, why not take a look at the Merino woolfelt iPad sleeve from Pack & Smooch.
The Merino sleeve from Pack & Smooch is made from 100% natural materials, with German Merino woolfelt and vegetable tanned leather. It has a great feel and style to it, and importantly it provides great protection for the iPad itself with its water repellent, insulating, and anti-static qualities. The leather patch at the bottom of the sleeve provides a comfortable grip for carrying the iPad around. A front pocket also has the function of allowing you to store your earbuds, a notepad and a pen etc. or to slip your iPhone into alongside your iPad.
For this review I tested the dark Merino sleeve with the new Retina iPad (4th gen). The fit is good and it even allows me to have the smart cover on, although that does make it a tight fit and sometimes causes the power button to be activated, at least until the sleeve has been used for a while and it stretches a little. Personally I really like the sleeve for its quality and style. For the next generation of the sleeve it would be great if they somehow where able to add in some form of stand feature that allowed the sleeve to also be more versatile.
You can also get Pack & Smooch woolfelt sleeves for iPad Mini, MacBooks and the iPhone.
