Case Factori Leather iPad Sleeve Might Get Lost in a London Fog [Review]



The Grey Leather Sleeve for iPad ($33) from newcomer Case Factori is likely the most precisely average case we’ve ever reviewed. It does the job politely, and without fanfare. Or much personality.

I struggled valiantly to find anything to set this case apart. It works well enough, its coated leather sides providing enough scratch and bump protection to make it a genuinely useful iPad sleeve. It also fits an iPad 2 with equipped with Apple’s Smart Cover, and…well, that’s it. It’s not expensive, but it isn’t terribly economical for what it is, either. The grey color doesn’t help much. Or deter. It also comes in green, which may provide a whole new level of excitement.

The sleeve is quite remarkable in that it doesn’t seem to excel or disappoint in any area. In fact, this case is unique in that it could be used as the shining example of a median case.

Oh, one unusual point in its favor, though: Case Factori says they’ll donate a small amount of cash to one of a few select charities they champion for every sleeve sold.
