Now that you’ve got a new iPad mini, why not carry it in style? Few cases afford such a pleasant mix of utility and style as WaterField Designs’ new iPad mini Travel Case, which shields the tablet and features slots for holding everything from the Apple Pencil to your AirPods and charging cables. It barely takes up more room than the tablet itself, and it’s small enough to slip comfortably into an airline seat pocket.
It’s attractive, but it certainly looks like a high-end “travel case”—specifically one that I might stow a toothbrush in along with a few vials of hotel shampoo. Maybe that’s because of the little nylon loop in the upper left, which you can slip your finger in to minimize the chances of dropping the case while it’s in your hand. Maybe it’s because of the zippers, whether it’s the long one that extends for around 15 inches around two side of the case or the almost 9-inch that stretches across the front.
