If it weren’t for the Perfect Plum exterior, Belkin’s $40 Pleat Sleeve for iPad might not look out of place as a Scottish kilt. This neoprene sleeve, tailored to the iPad’s size, features soft, flexible padding, along with a rigid internal panel on one side to protect your iPad's screen; a zipper along the top secures the device. The pleated front actually serves more than just an aesthetic purpose: one of the pleats hides the zipper of a spacious front pocket that can expand to hold a power adapter, cable, earbuds, and even your iPhone. If Perfect Plum isn’t your cup of tea, there’s a Black version as well.
