What's Hot: Durable, soft and thick padding, natural material.

What's Not: Fleece lining sheds lint on your tablet.

ColcaSac is a newcomer in making cases for mobile devices, but it has a noble mission: using naturally grown material, like cotton and hemp, that's plentiful and bio degradable to make protective products for your electronic gear, and give back to the planet via eco protection non-profit organizations. ColcaSac cases are thick and soft, and have an organic look. Both the Zagora and the Hanakapiai Kindle Sleeves fit the Kindle and other 6" and 7" tablets, and they are made of hemp canvas and lined with polyester Sherpa fleece. These sleeves are very protective and your tablet or ereader will easily survive in a backpack or a suitcase while in this case.

Design

There aren?t other tablet sleeves quite like the ColcaSac. The material gives the Zagora Kindle sleeve a unique look and the case maker did a good job at keeping the case looking natural. The sleeve has thick hemp made canvas that feels strong and durable. It can certainly protect your tablet or eReader from bumps and pokes in a bag with other gear or keys. On the inside, the fleece lining in both the Zagora and the Hanakapiai sleeves is thick and luscious. The soft, fleece blanket feeling puts you at easy when you slide your tablet or ereader into the sleeve. It does however shed lint onto the tablet or eReader.

With a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7" in the sleeve:


A large Velcro shuts the sleeve securely and there is a small pocket on the outside for you to store a charger or cable or other small accessories. The Zagora sleeve has high quality stitching and the case is sturdily built. Size-wise, the Zagora Kindle Sleeve fits the Kindle with a 6? display spaciously. We also tried putting 7? tablets including the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7? and the BlackBerry PlayBook 7? tablet in the Zagora, all fit in nicely. The sleeve has some flexibility and should be able to accommodate similar sized tablet or ebook reader even it?s a bit longer.



Features

The ColcaSac Zagora sleeve is heavily padded for extra protect yet it?s quite light weighing only 3.2 oz. Other than its natural look, the Zagora sleeve feels pretty soft in hand. ColcaSac is smart to use naturally grown hemp as the exterior because hemp has one of the strongest natural fiber which makes very sturdy and durable cases. And for a better environment, hemp can grow healthily without pesticides or herbicides and that?s good for the soil and the environment.

Conclusion

The ColsaSac Zagora Sleeve represents a new idea of making protective products for your electronic gear. Using natural materials and give 1% of its sales to eco protection non-profit organizations. The Zagora and Hanakapiai sleeves are very protective for your 6? or 7? tablet or ebook reader, and they?re also quite light. The sleeve shuts securely and have strong stitching. If you are looking for a thick protective case to carry your tablet or eReader in your backpack or large purse with other gear, give the ColcaSac natural looking sleeves a look.
