Great protection and utility

Overall the protection and utility of this sleeve is amazing. My only complaint is that the fit is a little snug with the new iPad and Magic Keyboard.

Volker S. (Baden-Württemberg, Germany)
Great stuff!

Have now already purchased the second time here and it is excellent quality, which will certainly let me order more often there. Plus excellent customer service and a great and friendly team that answers every question personally.

Harrison M. (Massachusetts, United States)

The Dash Sleeve is the perfect sleeve for my needs. I was looking for something that would be protective without being too bulky, have a secure pocket for storing a cable/charging brick if needed, and not use Velcro so I can insert and remove the iPad quietly. I love the Apple Pencil holder in the storage pocket and the lock-down zipper. It feels like a very safe place for my iPad to live and looks great to top it off! I have used WaterField cases for my devices for years and will continue to for years to come. Thanks for always making great-looking high-quality products with thoughtful attention to little details that improve use.

"Fits like a glove. Perfect for those who want added protection for their iPad Pro without adding unnecessary weight or bulk. There's plenty of room for a lightning cable and some gear in the rear mesh pocket. The elastic band at the top holds the iPad securely in place within the sleeve." - Scott E.

NEW Forza Textile

The Dash Sleeve adds another high performance textile to its lineup. The Forza fabric is made by weaving together two yarn-dyed nylon threads in a unique basketweave creating a vibrant pattern with undertones. It gives the case a classy look that works well in both professional and casual settings.

"I used to own the red fabric Dash for the old iPad Pro 10.7. I bought the new iPad Pro 12.9 with the Smart Folio Keyboard in black ballistic nylon. I was concerned that the fit would be too tight with the iPad and the Smart Folio Keyboard. It's not bad. It works. I love the ballistic nylon material. Always satisfied with WaterField and especially their customer service!" - John K., South Korea



“I bought a similar case for my MacBook. This one is even better. Great colour (red) and keeps my iPad secure and protected. Excellent design as always.” - Jonathan J., United Kingdom

“I have the iPad Pro 12.9in with the keyboard Smart Cover and the sleeve fits great. Vertical opening is secure but easy to get in and out. Outside pocket holds my Apple Pencil. Love the color (green). Very happy with quality and the service from WaterField was outstanding.” - CCPG, USA



“Highly functional and distinctive case for an iPad Pro. Stylish and also formal enough for a business meeting. Slim form factor yet protective enough to slide into another bag. I love the ease of inserting and removing the iPad. Their customer service is very good and it is clear that they put their hearts into making their bags.” - Rajesh K.
