The Elan Sleeve

Here is how Griffin describe the Elan Sleeve:

Slim enough to slip into a backpack, bag or briefcase; tough enough to protect your Apple iPad from whatever it may bump into in there. Slip your iPad into the Elan Sleeve, then flip the tab closure down to secure it. Gently pull the tab to slide your iPad out quickly and safely. For protection that looks great, Elan Sleeve is constructed of a stain-resistant synthetic outer shell with a smooth micro suede interior.

What’s in the Box?

The case is the only thing in the box, or rather the box is around the case.

Protecting Your iPad 2

The iPad 2 slides into the top of the sleeve and is held firmly in place.

In fact, you will really have to go some to get it out – although this will get easier with time when the sleeve becomes more used.

Final Thoughts

The Elan Sleeve is very light weight – in fact, without the iPad 2 inside it hardly weighs anything at all!

I certainly felt that my iPad 2 was safe and secure! It also didn’t take up much more room than the iPad 2 on it’s own, which was a bonus.

Price wise, the Elan Sleeve retails for around the £20 mark, although as usual take a look around to see if you can find a bargain.

If you are looking for something to store your “naked” iPad 2 in to keep it protected, then you should look no further than the Elan Sleeve.
