WaterField Unveils Sporty Outback iPad Slip Case for Apple’s Upgraded iPad Air 3 and iPad Mini 2

Share Article

The rugged, relaxed look of WaterField Designs’ new iPad Outback Slip Case—crafted from waxed canvas and leather—befits both leisure and the casual dress style of the modern workplace. A softly-padded interior, an impact-resistant plastic insert and a magnetic metal closure, further help to keep the new iPads secure and protected.

iPad Outback Slip Case—lightly padded, waxed canvas and leather

With iPads increasingly used both at home and at work, we designed this line to fit comfortably in either setting.

WaterField Designs announces the Outback Slip Case, a custom-fitted case for the just-announced Apple iPads. Natural materials—waxed cotton canvas and vegetable-tanned leather—combine for a sporty, un-pretentious look suitable for personal or casual work use. The custom-fitted Outback iPad Slip Case includes a softly padded interior and a stiff plastic insert to provide extra protection for the new anti-reflective, high resolution screen. WaterField Designs is an innovative San Francisco designer and manufacturer of custom laptop sleeves, designer bags and cases for digital gear.

The waxed canvas and premium leather of the Outback Slip Case gain character over time. A magnetically-secured leather strap keeps the iPad in place, and a cleverly-positioned lower “grab tab” lets users easily remove the iPad from the snug-fitting case. The Outback Slip Case can be carried on its own or stashed in a bag or backpack.

“I think the combination of canvas and leather gives the Outback Slip Case a relaxed, yet sophisticated look,” explains company owner, Gary Waterfield. “With iPads increasingly used both at home and at work, we designed this line to fit comfortably in either setting.”
