With a lot of people buying Apple’s magnetic Smart Cover to go along with their new iPad 3’s, many iPad accessory case makers are starting to tout the ability of their sleeve-style cases to accommodate the iPad 3 with that Smart Cover left on. The idea, of course, is that when you travel, you’ll want a little more protection for your precious Apple tablet, and the sleeve is the perfect way to completely cover your iPad 3.
Timbuk2’s upcoming Pop-Up case is kind of a hybrid sleeve/hard case, with a rigid front for added protection, and a faux fur lining on the inside. As its name implies, it’s also designed to allow you to prop up your iPad–whichever model you have–and be used as a viewing stand.
Timbuk2 Popup Sleeve for iPad 3 – Keep your Apple iPad 2 or iPad 3 stylishly protected while in use or at rest in the Timbuk2 Popup Sleeve for iPad 2 and iPad 3. Its exterior is constructed of tough, lightweight refined-weave ballistic nylon, and its interior has high-density foam and is lined in luxurious faux fur to keep your device free from scratches and soil. It offers two viewing positions and doubles as a typing rest, and it has internal molded attachments for securing your iPad. The Timbuk2 Popup Sleeve for iPad 2 and iPad 3 is available in several colors and slips easily in and out of a messenger bag, tote, or backpack.
While I appreciate the functionality of a folio-type case, I really prefer to use the iPad without that much extra material getting in the way. I’ll take a silicone skin to keep off scratches and a good sleeve for putting away over most other accessory any day. And the Timbuk2 Pop Up just might be my favorite sleeve right now.
Unlike many sleeves, this isn’t just some soft material to cover the iPad. Instead, it’s a semi-rigid pouch with internal molded attachments and high-density foam that will give added protection to your tablet. It can fit both first and second generations of Apple’s tablet, even with a skin, a back cover or a Smart Cover on.

The Timbuk2 Pop Up iPad Sleeve measures 8.6 x 10.6 x 0.7 inches and weighs 0.77 lbs. The semi-rigid outer includes a a fold down flap closure that ensures the tablet stays inside the sleeve no matter how you hold it, with faux fur lining on the interior to keep accidental scratches out of your slate.
If the whole reason you want a case is because it integrates a viewing stand, well this sleeve gives you the same. A clever folding mechanism allows the sleeve to double as an instant accessory for propping the iPad up a table in both landscape and portrait orientations (only one angle, though).
Timbuk2 offers the Pop Up iPad Sleeve in a number of color combinations, so you won’t be stuck with the same drab black or gray colorway that everything else always seem to come with. Price is $34.15 in Amazon.
