The SGP illuzion Leather Sleeve Case for the the iPad / iPad 3 is another in the range of Spigen-SGP cases for the new iPad that I’ve been looking at recently. You may recall that I did a review of their Spigen SGP Sleeve for the New iPad back in June, and was quite impressed with it.
This is a similar sleeve case and I’ve now spent enough time with it to offer a quick review.
The SGP illuzion Leather Sleeve is compatible with both the iPad 2 and the new iPad 3. It’s made of genuine leather that SGP describes as ‘soft and luxurious’ and has a soft micro fiber interior. The sleeve can hold the iPad comfortably even with an Apple Smart Cover or a thin back skin on it.
It has an embedded magnetic closure and is available in 8 colors: white, black, lime, Dante red, Solaris orange, Sherbet pink, Tender blue, and Vintage brown. My review unit is a black one.
The price for the SGP illuzion Sleeve is $59.99
The Spigen SGP Sleeve for the New iPad is a simple sleeve case for the new iPad 3. I’m not generally a big fan of sleeve cases for the iPad (though I do love the Flowfold) – but this one looked quite nice when SGP offered it among a handful of review units they recently sent me. So I decided to try this one out first and after a few weeks of use, I’m quite fond of it.
The SGP Sleeve for the new iPad has ‘floater style leather’ on its exterior and a soft suede Chamaude interior. It uses embedded magnetic buttons for secure closure. Here’s the list of its key features:
- Premium genuine leather. 100% Handmade
- Soft microfiber chamude interior
- Embedded magnetic closure
- Compatible with The new iPad and iPad 2
- Compatible with Apple Smart Cover, SGP Skin Guards, and Incredible Shields
The case is priced at $47.99.
I’ve had my new 2012 iPad (or iPad 3) for over two weeks now, having acquired it on launch day – and of course I’ve been looking out for good cases for it since before the iPad was even in my hands. The Moko Slim-Fit Folio Stand for the new iPad (and iPad 2) is one of the first I have tried.
I’ve had the case for nearly two weeks now and have had a chance to use it quite a lot. The short story on it is that it’s a heck of a good case for the 2012 iPad – especially for its price point of under $20. It’s made of PU leather (an inauspicious term if ever there was one), which is defined like so by Wikipedia:
Bicast leather (also known as bycast leather, split leather or PU. leather) is a split leather with a layer of polyurethane applied to the surface and then embossed. Bycast was originally made for the shoe industry for glossy shoes, and recently was adopted by the furniture industry. The resulting product has an artificially consistent texture that is easier to clean and maintain.
It actually feels pretty nice. Not luxurious or soft like some more expensive padded leather cases, but it’s comfortable and feels like it’s well made.
