Last week we brought you a hands-on look at the new Dodocase bookbound case for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, and this week we’d like to introduce you to another accessory from Dodocase, the Durables Sleeve.

In typical Dodocase fashion, the Durables Sleeve is a fashionable accessory that will help project your iPad Pro from the elements. It features a wax canvas exterior, leather accent, and a cotton twill interior. The sleeve also features a hidden feature inside that Apple Pencil owners will no doubt find handy. Have a look at our video walkthrough for a brief hands-on.

The best wireless keyboard for the Mac?

If you’re looking for a sleeve that’s features unique properties, then look no further than Dodocase’s Durables line. The waxed canvas exterior makes the exterior feel sturdy, yet it’s pliable and will age gracefully.

The interior of the sleeve is comprised of cotton twill, and its colorful material stands out from the sleeve’s exterior.

On the bottom area of the sleeve rests a mahogany leather accent that’s just the right size to accommodate a hand as it’s held. And you’ll want to hold it that way, because the leather is high quality and feels extremely soft and luxurious.

Inside the sleeve you’ll find a small little elastic piece of material made for holding the Apple Pencil. I was able to fit my 10.5-inch iPad Pro, Smart Keyboard, and Apple Pencil inside with no problems.

If you’re worried about your iPad Pro falling out, then the button clasp will lend you peace of mind. As an Apple Leather Sleeve owner, this is something that I often worry about, so it’s nice to see that Dodocase has addressed a potential hazard.

Obviously the look and feel won’t suite everyone, but if you’re accustomed to Dodocase’s unique styling, then I think you’ll like its Durables line. You can find the Durables Sleeve on Dodocase’s website for $69.95.
