Two of XtremeMac's new iPad cases are traditional sleeve-styled designs with the company's nice hexagonal pattern as distinctive touches. Neoprene Sleeve ($40) is a soft black case with an orange lining used for two pockets -- one iPad-sized, the other for accessories -- that are sealed with a Velcro top flap. The hexagons here are etched into the front and absent from the back and the flap. By comparison, the Nylon Sleeve ($50) has a soft furry orange lining that's hidden when the single zipper is closed, leaving the otherwise black case to sparkle with a semi-glossy hexagonal pattern. Padding on the Nylon Sleeve is considerably thicker than on the Neoprene version, but Nylon has no pocket. They're both on the expensive side relative to similar cases we've seen.


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.
