    Default Carrying sleeve for iPad mini?

    I like the size and feel of the iPad mini a LOT - and don't really want to make it bigger with a case - which run on my 2 previous full size iPads.

    Any thin sleeves out there for the mini yet, just to carry it around but can slip out quickly to use it with no case?

    I'm getting a Vera Bradley ereader sleeve. Most sleeves designed for 7 to 8 inch readers will fit the ipad mini.

    I'm using this sleeve from Barnes and Noble:

    BARNES & NOBLE | Dalton Cover in Walnut by Barnes & Noble

    It works really well and has a front pocket to slip a pen or something into.

    I've had mine for a few months and was using it for a tab 7.7. It protected it really well. The mini does stick out about a quarter inch when it slides in, but the flap covers that part completely. I don't like to add size and weight with cases during use so this sleeve is the perfect solution for me.

    How does the flap work? Magnet?

    Does anyone know of some kind of protected film that could be used for the back? I have the Smart Cover for the front but this is not so smart for the back!

    There is no magnet, just gravity keeping it closed. That is probably the one weakness in the design, but I haven't found it to be an issue in my daily use.

    I'm sure Zagg or one of the other companies will come out with a full body screen protector soon if they haven't already. Just be patient.

    No they won't. I got the smart cover and ordered something to protect the back but I also like a sleeve for when it is damp out. I went to Staples and tried several sleeves made for the Kindle Fire and the Fire HD (both 7" tablets) and the mini would not go into the sleeve. So you need something bigger.

    Most of the original Nook sleeves or Nook tablet sleeves will work.

    I ordered this yesterday. Have not received it yet, so can't comment on it. I do have the Apple Smart Cover and have ordered a protector from The Joy Factory, but don't think they add enough size/bulk to prevent me from using this case. Have to wait and see.

    Someone in another thread mentioned this one

    Looks good and price can't be beat. I checked reviews for the brand in general and the ones for the iPhone got great reviews.

    I wanted something light that that I could toss in my purse, but still provided some protection. And the iPad mini had to fit with a Smart Cover attached. I found several options on Etsy.com. I ended up going with a simple wool felt sleeve.

    Looks like InCase has finally released some mini cases...

    I think I'll hold out for the neoprene case. Had a book case for my iPad 2 & 3... But don't want my mini cased at all times. I use an InCase sleeve for my MacBook so this would feel familiar...

    Might have been me, I have shared it in a couple of places because of how impressed I am. I have it for my iPhone 5 and iPad mini and they work great. To me they are the same as Zagg but for much less. I use a full body kit with my Apple Smart Cover. It not only protects the back, but also helps reduce the cover from sliding around on the screen when it is closed.

    Huge bonus, if you order it from Amazon, they give you a coupon for a free second skin in the box. Not sure how long it will last but you can't beat that.
