Flowfold iPad 2 sleeve

The Flowfold iPad 2 Sleeve is an excellent new iPad 2 sleeve case that is the subject of a current Kickstarter project that will help finance its initial production run.

One of the most notable things about this iPad 2 case is that it is ‘ecologically sound’. Here’s a little detail on what that means:

The outer layer of the sleeve is made from reclaimed composite sailcloth. These cloths are composed of Carbon Fiber, Kevlar, Pentex or Polyester matrixes sandwiched between Mylar films. They are the toughest, lightest and most resilient wallets in the world due to their high tensile strength to weight ratios and ideal modulus of elasticities. The inner padding layer of the sleeve is made from a 3mm thick 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottle felt.

When I was approached about the Flowfold iPad 2 Sleeve and took a quick look at its Kickstarter page I thought it would probably be quite a nice eco-friendly case. I was wrong. It’s an extremely nice iPad 2 case, and one that stands up well against any iPad case, eco-friendly or not.

I’ve had a sample unit of the Flowfold iPad 2 Sleeve for a few days now, and I’m super impressed with it. It’s a much handsomer case than I imagined it would be an it feels great when I’m carrying it. The materials used on it make it quite a durable and weather resistant case, and it’s also very lightweight and not bulky at all.

It’s easy to slip the iPad 2 in and out of the Flowfold, and it even fits in well when I leave the iPad 2 Smart Cover on it.

The iPad 2 is very secure within the Flowfold as well. It’s an all-round excellent case. One I’d be very happy to buy for my iPad 2. So of course I backed the Kickstarter project today.

I also have to admit I love the backstory on how this company got started:

During High School I worked as a sailmaker building and repairing boat sails on the coast of Maine. When my grandfather’s old leather wallet fell apart I crafted a new one from scrap sailcloth and the first flowfold wallet was born. Over the last 5 years I built hundreds of prototype designs and in 2010 I brought the Flowfold billfold to market. www.flowfold.com

I really can’t recommend the Flowfold iPad 2 Sleeve highly enough. I think it’s richly deserving of Kickstarter backing. Check the project out when you have a moment, here:

If you pledge $25 or more you’ll get a Flowfold iPad 2 Sleeve if it meets its funding target.
