The Siargao iPad Mini Sleeve provides excellent carry-around protection with plenty of youthful style. It is made in the USA of earth-friendly and/or renewable materials.
Size and Fit
The Siargao iPad Mini Sleeve is only slightly wider/longer than your iPad Mini, and will hold it snugly while allowing you to easily remove it in seconds.
Features and Quality
The Siargao iPad Mini Sleeve oozes with quality and craftsmanship. It is ruggedly made of very thick undyed hemp and recycled polyester fleece. While many cases seek to provide drop protection through a combination of ABS plastic and silicone, The Siargao achieves this seemingly without trying by way of its thick, but not too thick, construction. This ideal thickness also makes it easy to hold, and the hemp won't slip out of your hand like plastic or silicone will. Yes, you will need to remove your device to use it. However, while putting the Siargao through its paces, I was reminded how thin and light the iPad Mini is when unencumbered, and how much I enjoy using it like this. There is even a handy front pocket for cables, adaptors, etc. Lastly, the Siargao is made entirely of renewable and recycled materials, and is constructed in the USA.
The Siargao's hemp exterior has been printed with a blue wave pattern that is neither masculine nor feminine. It is youthful without being overly so, and would be at home anywhere it, be it outdoor concert or the office.
If you prefer sleeves over cases, the Siargao by Colcasac is the best I've used. It's durable, well-made, constructed of earth-friendly materials in the USA, and has an understated style.
