Are These the Greatest iPad Covers in the World? Probably

If your apartment was on fire and you only had time to grab one or two of your belongings we’re pretty certain your iPad would be right up there with your cellphone and your pet cat. If you’re like us, you carry your trusty tablet everywhere you go, from your daily commute to the bathroom (cough.)

To make sure you keep yours safe and stylish when you’re on the road, we’ve lovingly compiled a list of our top five cases on the market right now.

1. Woolrich x Refleece iPad Sleeve

With fall on the horizon, we can’t think of a better way to keep your iPad cozy than with this toasty Woolrich x Refleece plaid sleeve. The collaborative collection fuses Refleece’s functional case design with wool from America’s oldest woolen mill in operation. The result is totally timeless.

2. Lifeproof Nüüd

Guaranteed to protect your iPad against all possible iPad calamities, the Lifeproof Nüüd is waterproof, dirt proof, snow proof and shock proof. We recommend this one for on location photographers and those that have been known to drop their iPhone down the toilet on more than one occasion.

3. Miniot Cover Mk2

We can’t get enough of this Dutch design. Carved from magnetic wood, the Miniot Cover Mk2 fuses technology with a touch of soul-soothing nature. The wood is sourced from sustainable forests in the Netherlands and is lined with an Ultrasuede microfiber lining to protect your screen from scratches.

4. New Classic Luxury iPad Case by Comme des Garçons

For the guy that likes all of his accessories to be matching, preferably in black leather, this Comme case makes for a beautifully crafted addition. We love the chunky gold zipper and case actually doubles up as a document portfolio. Super smart.

5. Flying Tiger iPad Case by Kenzo

We love the idiosyncratic statement that this Kenzo cover makes. The designer brand is known for its achingly cool prints so why not swathe your iPad in a little piece of the action. The glossy plastic exterior will protect from scratches and the case comes with a screen protector included.
