    good but no protection

    i bought the midnight blue case and it is amazing and everything, however, if you do not have a smart case or the smart keyboard you are doomed because it is not enough protection at all for your screen or the back of the iPad

    Very handsome case and nice fit

    Well I wasn't going to spring for this because my preference would have been for a leather case like the one I had for my first iPad pro and I was annoyed they did not make one for the new version. I finally caved and I must say it is a very handsome and well fitting sleeve, even if a bit pricey. The only drawback is that you have no protection for the back of the device when you are using it and I am constantly worried it is going to get scratched. But carrying it around in the sleeve gives it complete protection. The smart cover fits fine as well and the pencil holder is useful. Still wish they made a case. The ones from third party vendors are either too bulky (Logitech) or are made of cheap plastic so this was my only option. I gave 4 stars because I think it is priced too high, should have been 79 not 129. Otherwise no complaints on the sleeve itself.

    Simple, Classy, and Functional

    This is a very simple sleeve but the added Pencil keeper makes it very functional. The leather is absolute top-quality and the construction is nothing short of excellent. These must be made by expert craftsmen. The design itself is classy being very understated and with only the Apple logo embossed on the back. No elastic, no hook & loop, or other unnecessary fastener devices. I like that.

    The leather is soft and supple and the surface is very smooth - almost a buffed finish. The interior has a suede finish to help protect the iPad screen if you use it without the Smart Cover or Smart Keyboard. However, if you do use either the Smart Cover or Keyboard on your iPad Pro, it will fit into the Sleeve with no problem and actually be retained a little better due to the snugger fit. I use this with either the Smart Cover or no cover, depending on the day's activity.

    The Pencil keeper is really good at holding the Pencil and allowing easy access to it. All it takes is a little flex of the leather to remove it but otherwise it's retained perfectly.

    If you like the idea of using your iPad Pro 10.5 sans a "case" of some sort, this is the perfect way to pack it and carry it around while providing some protection. The quality and function give this sleeve 5 stars.

    $189 for this?!

    Come on Apple. We want the smart case back to protect the iPad not this expensive useless sleeve.

    Very functional but hard to believe it's leather

    This iPad Pro sleeve does exactly what it needs to do — my new iPad Pro is protected and the Apple Pencil is neatly secured. No matter how closely I inspect it, though, I have a really hard time believing that it's leather, regardless of what the website says. I became wise to other stores selling "genuine PU leather" (i.e., polyurethane) accessories but have always sprung for real leather from Apple whenever I get a new device. For the price of the darned thing, I just wish it actually felt like leather. Ultimately disappointed ...

    Excellent sleeve. Well worth the price!

    I'm really loving this sleeve! It fits my iPad Pro snugly and securely, even with the SmartKeyboard attached. I have very small hands and a very weak grip, yet I have no trouble sliding the IPP with SmartKeyboard in and out of this sleeve. In fact, having used the sleeve with the IPP and SmartKeyboard, the fit with a "naked" IPP almost feels a little too loose.

    The fit and finish of the sleeve is perfect, the leather supple. I'm especially fond of the slot for the Apple Pencil, which is a perfect fit for the Pencil--no chance whatsoever that it will fall out or get damaged.

    This was definitely a splurge item, but now that I have it, I'm so glad I went ahead and bought it.

    Beautiful and practical

    The leather sleeve is a classic piece of Apple design. Form and function combined with style. The leather is terrifically soft and supple, but holds the iPad Pro securely. The Apple Pencil is held fast but easily removed.
    To clarify, the iPad will fit easily with a silicon or leather Smart Cover. It will fit with the Smart Keyboard but it's a tight fit and may stretch the leather over time.
    Although expensive I believe it's an invaluable accessory.
