Cases for iPad is no longer simply for protective functionality, it is an identity. An identity that unleashes the Style in you whenever you carry an iPad with it. Partnered with the iPhone 5 cases, cases for the iPad is indeed, an important accessory.
How to choose an ideal casing for your iPad anyway? Well, the answer is definite. Especially when you are on-the-go, other than being protective, the iPad case must be best suit you. Given to that, here are the top 5 picks for premium iPad cases from Her101 editors:
1. Vaja leather iPad sleeve
Compatible with the iPad 2 and the new iPads (iPad 3rd and 4th generation), the leather iPad sleeve is outstandingly handcrafted. Priced at USD 140, the leather sleeve comes with two-toned design and microfiber interior lining – elegant. It’s also suitable for the iPad with the Smart Cover applied.

2. Couch bleecker debossed painted stripe iPad sleeve
Taking cues from the world of racing, a pair of graphic, raised painted stripes—one thick, one thin— the Coach iPad leather case gives this glove-tanned leather iPad sleeve a punch of bold color. Starting from USD 178, case has a cut-out for charger at the bottom – detailed.

3. Sandqvist blue canvas denim iPad case
The vintage design iPad pouch from Sandqvist is indeed stylish yet fulfilling protective function to your iPad. Blue cotton canvas trimmed with beige leather combination is always a timeless design – you will fall in love with it instantly now or ten years later.

4. Spigen SGP Folio.S Case
The SPIGEN Folio.S case is handcrafted folio style case, made of genuine leather. The case provides sturdy protection for the new iPad.
