Inateck Protection for iPad Air Has ‘Something Up Its Sleeve’

I found myself searching for a sleeve/case for my iPad Air recently and my efforts led me to Inateck. The Protection for iPad Air sleeve is a stylish gray felt sleeve that fits nicely over my device even when my Logitech Bluetooth keyboard is attached. Inateck also designed the sleeve to function as a nifty little device stand.

The sleeve is made of a durable felt with contrast stitching on the ends, one end sewn shut and the other open to slide the device in and out. To keep the iPad securely in its place is a leather strap that connects with a magnetic buckle.
Simple, yet stylish and functional is the way I describe the design and operation of the Inateck Protection sleeve. And affordable as I found it priced at just $12.99 on recently.


This sleeve fits both original Air and the Air 2 as its dimensions are 10.23in x 7.48in and you can order it in any color you like as long as its gray.


Flip the sleeve on its side and fold flat the open end and you have a slick and quick stand for the device for watching movies or videos or even working on your iPad separated from the keyboard as I do sometimes.


The Inateck Protection for iPad Air is a simple yet stylish and very functional sleeve that offers protection for your device while also doubling as a stand, and all at a great value. Inateck also offers sleeves and cases for the new Surface Pro 3 and Kindle devices as well as the new MacBook.
