Dash sleeve

The dash sleeve is great. Is is lightweight and has a pocket for cords etc on the back. The only change I would like is another stretch band on the other side of the i pad as well.

Tom S. (Minnesota, United States)
Very nice sleeve!

Got the “woolie” version and like it a lot. Fits my iPad with Smart Keyboard perfectly. Open top allows charging with in the sleeve, and safety elastic strap secures it. Great product and well made!

Royce C. (Nebraska, United States)
My least favorite Waterfield product.

I bought the Dash Sleeve for iPad Air with Magic Keyboard (#29). The furry lining may be great for hard surfaces (the bare iPad or a MacBook). Not so good for an iPad with Magic Keyboard. The rubbery surface on the Magic Keyboard is gripped by the fur. Takes a LOT of force to insert or remove the item from the sleeve. The sleeve is thicker than I expected too.

Judy M. (Texas, United States)
Great sleeve

This is nice quality and I like it SO much better than the case I was using with a zipper which is a pain in the neck!

Stephen C. (Tennessee, United States)
Great sleeve - the best on the market!

Over the years, I have purchased sleeves from this wonderful vendor for many of my apple products. I don’t have my new iPad Air yet; however, I suspect that it will be an outstanding product as the half dozen or so other sleeves that I have ordered in the past!

"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.
