Pre-order: Cache for iPad mini

Sleeve for the iPad mini -- Made in USA by TOM BIHN
Cache for iPad mini, Horizontal

The Cache for iPad mini is designed to protect your iPad mini against scrapes and scratches with little bulk added and is ideal for those who don’t want their iPad mini sleeve to make their loads heavier or to take up a lot of space. The Cache cradles your iPad mini in 1/4″ (6 mm) thick foam padding laminated with an exterior of tough polyester knit and an interior of brushed tricot. With no noisy Velcro® or zipper, the Cache closes by simply tucking a generous flap into the top opening.

$25. Available for pre-order; ships by early November.
