Incase has just announced two new offerings for the iPad 2, both made of premium leather and available in two sophisticated colorways. The iconic Apple-loving brand has upgraded its iPad Portfolio ($130) and Book Jacket Select ($100) in the soft and supple leather, with a luxurious look and plenty of function inside. Both designs will be available soon online in premium leather in either gray with port accents or black with gray accents.
The Leather Portfolio (above left) zips up into a slim carry-along, but unfolds into a full iPad workstation when necessary. The premium leather case comes complete with plenty of pockets for papers or accessories, a magnetic smart cover to help your iPad 2 sleep and wake, and easily converts to a stand for viewing or working.
The slimmer Leather Book Jacket Select (above right) is a simpler portfolio that has suede lining and keeps your iPad safe and sound while still allowing users full access, including a precision-cut camera port so you can stay snap-happy. The book jacket easily converts into a helpful stand that has three different viewing positions, including a low-profile angle for typing. The slim case also includes a sturdy elastic strap to keep things locked down when you’re not using your pad.
Both items are made with genuine leather that has been bathed in aniline dye and gently buffed and waxed by hand for a rich patina that will become more unique over time. The cases are accented with high-quality cotton twill or suede trim.
