I love using my iPad without a case or skin on it. I could never understand why people want to add bulk and weight to a beautifully thin and light device. That’s why I have always been a sleeve-type guy – something to keep my iPad from being scratched or dented while being transported, yet something that easily allows you to take the iPad out and hold it in your hands the way Steve Jobs intended. That’s the reason I started my search for a new iPad sleeve. Most of the sleeves on the market now are very sterile and boring in their appearance.
My search for the perfect iPad sleeve ended when I discovered the ColcaSac iPad sleeve. ColcaSac is a small company based in Salt Lake City, Utah that makes five different iPad sleeves, as well as numerous iPhone and MacBook sleeves. Their designs are simple, yet sophisticated. The ColcaSac I am reviewing is the Zagora model, which is available to purchase for $35.
The outside of the sleeve is made of a beautiful basketweave hemp canvas that gives it a slight rugged look and the inside of the Colcasac has a soft cotton interior that helps the iPad screen stay free of fingerprint marks or smears. The feature I like most on the exterior of the Colcasac iPad sleeve is the pocket on the front – it’s perfect for holding your iPhone or your iPad charger while on the go.
Alot of the iPad sleeves on the market now have a pretty big flaw – they don’t hug or protect the iPad tightly. That’s not a problem with the Colcasac. With ColcaSac’s new sleeve I can open the sleeve (it uses a Velcro fold to close), hold it upside down, and have the iPad slide out nice and slowly.
Considering the design and quality materials they use, the $35 price tag for the ColcaSac is an absolute steal. It’s also a smart and beautiful choice for iPad owners who want something aesthetically different from the usual offerings of iPad sleeves found on Amazon or in Apple Stores.
Overall, this is THE sleeve to beat for the iPad. Tight fit, pocket on the front, and high-end materials used all for $35. You can read more about the Colcasac iPad sleeve or purchase it here.
