"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 Italian 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.
