WaterField Designs (www.sfbags.com) has announced new cases for the iPad Pro, the Smart Keyboard, the Apple Pencil and iPhone.
When it comes to the super-sized iPad, there are the Dash sleeve, Ultimate SleeveCase, Suede Jacket, Travel Express, and Outback Solo. The cases can be used on their own or can be stowed inside another. All are crafted locally in San
Lightweight like the iPad Pro, the Dash offers rugged protection without the bulk. It protects the iPad (with or without the Smart Keyboard) with plush lining, impact-resistant foam and a black ballistic nylon outer shell, according to Gary Waterfield, owner of WaterField Designs. An elastic band keeps the iPad Pro securely inside, and a rear mesh pocket holds the Pencil and other light accessories or papers.
Soft, scratch-free, custom-fitted Ultrasuede cradles the iPad Pro in the case. A back mesh pocket holds the Pencil along with other light accessories. Small pull-tabs help ease the iPad Pro in and out.
A bottom loop helps with the removal of the iPad Pro. A back pocket holds the Pencil, papers or a cord. Options includes horizontal or vertical orientation, black or brown leather trim, optional D-rings and a shoulder strap.
The Travel Express is a grab-and-go case that fits the iPad Pro, Smart Keyboard, Pencil and accessories. Scratch-free interior pockets, foam lining, an impact-resistant plastic insert, plus a stretchy outside pocket make this a lightweight, all-in-one iPad solution. You can stash it in a bag or add optional D-rings to wear it as a stand-alone case.
The Solo shoulder bag includes a custom-fitted main compartment for the iPad Pro with or without a Smart Keyboard, plus two front pockets for the Pencil and accessories. Neoprene cradles the iPad within a tan, waxed-canvas or black ballistic shell. A distressed leather flap—brown with the waxed canvas or black with the ballistic nylon—closes with a magnet and a removable strap allows use as a shoulder bag or a case within another bag.
The Dash costs US$59 and is available in black ballistic nylon with black or copper piping. The Suede Jacket costs US$25 (plus $6 for the Pocket: +$6) and is available in black Ultrasuede.
