Each of the eight cases is also available in custom sizes for the new iPad (4th generation).
WaterField Designs introduces the Outback Sleeve for the iPad mini. For much-needed screen and body protection, WaterField offers seven additional, custom-fitted iPad mini case choices: the Ultimate SleeveCase, the EXO SleeveCase, the Slip Case, the Suede Jacket, the Smart Case, the Wallet and the Travel Express.
