Shortly after the birth of the Apple iPad, some clever bag designer figured out that a classic manila envelope would be just the right size and shape to hold the device. Of course, a bit more security is demanded by the typical user and so manufacturers since then have worked with envelope tablet cases while employing various materials.
Through research and reviews, Tablet2Cases has compiled its list of the Top 5 Envelope Cases out there on the market today. They’re a little bit retro, a little bit modern ... and are listed below.
1. The Béta Version Limited Edition Pixelfolk eReader Case – Buy Now for $39.95
Handmade and exclusive, The Beta Version has produced this limited edition eBook reader case to cover devices in uniqueness. The high-quality leather exterior and felt interior are only plusses behind the wonderful “pixel” designs based on Hungarian folk art. This one-in-a-million carrier is also literally award-winning amidst The Beta Version tablet cases collection.
2. The Wardmaster Universal iPad Envelope Case in Ripple Pattern Black – Buy Now for $43.95
This one may be the style king among envelope cases with its classic design in basic black. Happily, too, the look itself is only the beginning, as the Universal iPad Envelope Case from Wardmaster includes sturdy foam and suede-effect material to pad the interior and protect the all-important device. At its light weight, this envelope case is also perfect for toting within a larger bag.
3. The Wardmaster Universal iPad Envelope Case in Silver – Buy Now for $43.95
Call this one the flashier younger brother of the more austere Ripple Pattern Black iPad case from Wardmaster. Looking completely futuristic and slick, this silver case includes the same great low-weight impact resistance and quality workmanship of Wardmaster tablet cases. A no-frills case this may be, but for style few can match it.
4. The Frank Clegg Leather iPad Case
Another handmade envelope case, Frank Clegg's Leather iPad Case is primarily crafted in leather. However, by contacting the shop in Massachusetts, users may even special-order the Frank Clegg case in ostrich or alligator skin. In all, this is old-fashioned craftsmanship for a modern device.
5. The BoxWave Manila iPad 3 Leather Envelope
For such an apparently simply-designed tablet case, the Manila iPad 3 Leather Envelope from BoxWave offers admirable protection for everyday use. The form-fitting design has an exterior of tough leather while the stitching stays firm and the case’s corners are specially reinforced. A decent choice for those going minimalist.
