M-Edge, maker of E-reader cases, has released Touring Sleeve ($40) for the iPad -- a zip-open neoprene case with a polar fleece interior. The neoprene is of the baked, matte variety rather than the shinier version, and a zippered compartment on the back can be used to hold accessories.

On May 13, 2010, iLounge published The Complete Guide to iPad Cases and Protection, a multi-page comparison of over 70 different iPad cases and film protectors, sorted by genre. The following details were added to this piece by that comparison article; please click on the link above for additional comparative discussion of similar protective options.

We typically steer clear of recommending sleeves for iPods and iPhones, but iPad users may find that they make more sense. The concept is to totally envelop the iPad inside protective material, using a flap or zipper to open and release the device when it’s needed. In almost every one of these cases, the designs speak for themselves—you either like how they look, or don’t—so we’re sorting them by price and focusing our brief notes on fit and scope of protection, with bare opinions otherwise.

Does Touring Sleeve fit? Yes. Is everything protected? Yes. Double-zippers enable charging while the iPad’s inside this case, a rear pocket has space for power and headphone accessories, and a side zipper opens to reveal a small handle that can be used for carrying in a pinch.

Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
