I’m the proud owner of a 12.9" iPad Pro (2018). I ended up purchasing the Smart Keyboard with it, which also doubles as a cover for the front and back of the iPad.
While, the Smart Keyboard provides reasonably good protection, I’d also like to have a sleeve for the iPad + Smart Keyboard to use while travelling. Ideally it would offer a snug fit (but not so snug that it requires a lot of effort to take in and out), have a retractable handle and/or optional strap, and include a zippered side pocket for accessories (e.g. charger, cables, and dongles).
Has anyone come across something that fits the bill? Thanks in advance for any advise you have to pass along.
Another +1 for Waterfield. I bought one for the original iPad that lasted through all the 9.7” versions I owned and still looks good today. I just sold the sleeve I bought for my 12.9” in 2015, and just ordered a new one for my 2018 12.9”.
I looked into the Waterfield option. It looks like a good case…except that the price is prohibitive here in Canada. Once I add on shipping and duty, the cost of purchasing the iPad sleeve ends up being $150 CAD. And if I wanted to return it for some reason I’d only receive a refund on the case (not the shipping) and would need to pay to ship it back.
I think I’ll see if I can find something local (or at least in Canada) that’s a good fit. I’ll keep Waterfield as a Plan “B”.
Any other suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
