Leather iPad Pro Sleeve Review by Pro Photog Eric Marks
We were recently notified about a video posted on youtube by professional photographer Eric Marks of findingmiddleearth.com. The video is an unsolicited review of the MacCase Premium Leather iPad Pro 12.9 Sleeve.
Eric states several times that he is not a case guy and that he is really picky. When a person who is not a case guy and is extremely picky decides to review your product on a platform like youtube, well, you pray for the best but expect the worst.
What did Eric have to say?
You can watch the video or read through the transcript below.
As Eric states in the video, we was not paid to make the video. We have no relation with him other than the fact he is using our sleeve to help make his living as a professional creative person. There is no affiliate program or commission involved. This was a "non-case guy" who was looking for the best protection for his iPad Pro 12.9 and his Apple Pencil in a sleeve style and found the MacCase Premium Leather iPad Pro 12.9 Sleeve.
The Best iPad Pro Sleeve on the Market?
Alright hello everyone, Eric Marks here again with findingmiddleearth.com and today we’re going to talk about the absolute best IPad Sleeve on the market that I have found. I am typically not a guy that likes cases, I don’t like added weight or extra bulk, I’m normally the kind of guy that carries my iPhone around without a case, the same with a lot of my products, but I really like sleeves.
Sleeves are kind of my thing because I can take the product out of the sleeve and then I have either a very thin case or no case at all (on the tablet). And, it is hard to find a good sleeve. You can look all over the internet and I got to have 3 basic criteria when it comes to finding a sleeve.
Number 1 for me is bulk and weight, I don’t want it to be overly bulky or a really heavy thing.
Number 2 is aesthetics. It’s go to look cool, right? I love a vintage leather look like this.
And then number 3 is price. We can’t buy a $500 sleeve or anything like that.
So, this is the iPad Pro Premium Leather Sleeve by a company called MacCase. This thing is just, just phenomenal. It feels, the leather feel is just, it’s beautiful. You can tell it is real premium leather, it’s got that smell to it that I love, that leather smell. It’s just been great. Let me show you how this thing works.
How the Leather iPad Pro Sleeve Works
So the latch here is magnetic. You have two magnets here, left and right, and so you know there is no effort to close it, it just closes and it stays closed and it won’t come open. I hate velcro. There was a lot of sleeves that I saw on the market with velcro or some kind of snap thing and I don’t like the snap in things either. It’s just easier.Just lift up the magnets, let if go and you’re good. There’s no effort there.
The best thing about this sleeve was that it holds the Apple pencil. It has this great leather add on here that holds the Pencil nice and snug. Which is another plus for me. The Pencil won't fall out. It’s super sung in there. You can shake it all you want and the Pencil’s not coming out.
This Apple Pencil is $100 bucks. You can loose this thing just by walking around with your case and throwing it into your bag, back and forth. This thing holds it super super tight and cushioned in.
Same with the iPad as you can see. So the iPad fits right in here. I’ll take it out for you here. This is the 12.9" iPad Pro and on it I have another little leather, the little thin leather Apple case. Normally I don’t even like having any case but you know, if it’s something thin I’m fine with it. I just wanted to get leather on leather. I thought it looked nice.
But basically the iPad Pro just slides in and out of it. There is nothing else to it. A sleeve is a sleeves far as comes to operation. This one just operates flawlessly and is the best one I’ve ever had.
The MacCase Premium Leather iPad Pro Sleeve is Fantastic
I'm a really picky case guy because I just don’t like cases and sleeves. If I find a case or sleeve that I like, you know it’s good because I just really can't stand added extra weight and bulk. But this ( sleeve ) is great because I also can’t stand scratching up and ruining my devices. When I am on the move and on the go and I’m taking this on assignment or location with me or whatever, I just take this and throw it, drop it right in here.
It’s super cushioned and thick down in here, but it’a also a very light sleeve as well. I just let the magnetic latch go over it and throw it in my backpack with my laptop and it’s super easy and good to go. It just travels right with me. The MacCase Premium Leather iPad Pro sleeve is fantastic.
Head over to their website, cause they also have, if you are a case guy unlike me, they also have a case, a premium leather case for the iPad, which is kind of like a book case that opens up. I prefer the sleeve which has been great. And it is real genuine leather. For all the leather you get the price is very, very good.
I am not getting paid to say this. It’s not a affiliate link. I don’t get any kind of commission from them at all. I’ll just put a link so that it’s easy for you guys to go over there and see the product. Other than that, if you have any questions for me or anything, this is my personal case that I use and that I’m going to continue to use. I’m just loving it. It’s great.
I’m a very vintage leather kind of guy. I really like that style. This just really fits the bill for that. I was amazed how hard it was to find an aesthetically pleasing and well priced and good functioning sleeve. You'd think there would be hundreds of them out there. And I was only able to find one and it’s the MacCase Premium Leather iPad Pro Sleeve.
Premium Leather Surface Pro Sleeve?
I will end with this. If you are not an Apple fan, if you don’t like iPads, maybe you have a Microsoft Surface Pro. For you Windows fans out there, well guess what. The Surface Pro 4 drops right in the case and fits in as well. There you go.
I haven't tried fitting a 13” MacBook Pro in here but that might fit as well. This is made for the 12.9" iPad but who knows, you could try that as well. You can use it for your Surface Pro 4 you can put the Surface Pro 4 pen right in there or you can use it for the iPad. Dual purpose, if you not an Apple guy. No worries. Thanks for watching.
