WaterField Designs Ultimate Tablet Sleeve Case review


Dreaming of the perfect, personalized case? Then the Tablet Ultimate Sleeve Case by WaterField Designs is the case for you. One of the many attractive aspects of the sleeve is that it is customizable. WaterField’s simple 5-step online checkout lets you choose the case’s design (horizontal or vertical), if you want a shoulder strap or extra storage space for cables. They even have a sleeve sized to fit for iPads with an Apple Smart Cover. All of these options add up to a reasonable price for the high-quality case.

Editor's Rating 

Here is another top-of-the-line case from the San Francisco company WaterField Designs. This tablet sleeve stands out against other cases because it is customizable online. The helpful guys over at WaterField start off by letting you first choose your tablet PC. Then choose from either horizontal or vertical orientation for your iPad. For just a bit extra, you can add on a shoulder strap and turn the sleeve into a stand-alone bag. Also available is their “Piggyback” mini-pouch that attaches on the front giving extra room for cables and chargers.

The case’s interior has the trademarked material “Ultra Suede” (feels like suede, made from same material used to clean your tablet screen)—a big help in cleaning away fingerprints. Between the nylon and the “Ultra Suede” there is a layer of plastic that gives a little more protection for the display. It also keeps down the overall weight of the case. I like how the iPad fits perfectly and snugly into the case without much wiggle room unlike other cases. The top flap closes with Velcro, which I’m not a fan of, but it does the job. To top it off, the backside has an open-top pocket.
