Well it has been a crazy week for new Apple gear, as expected, and that means brand new accessories will be hitting the market non-stop for the next couple months. While we have already rounded up some of the best options for Apple’s new 10.5-inch iPad Pro currently available, including new gear from WaterField, Logitech, LifeProof, Anker and even Apple itself, it’s Pad & Quill time…
Needless to say at this point, Pad & Quill is not only one of our favorite accessory makers out there, but the quality on its leather, linen and canvas goods are undeniable. So when we heard word about the new Oxford for iPad Pro 10.5-inch, we knew we had to see what the company has in stock for Apple’s latest tablet.
As usual, this case is crafted from a single piece of American full-grain bridle leather with a classy elastic strap closure and marine-grade nylon stitching. It has a built-in Apple Pencil holder, interior document pockets, a self-propping kickstand and a magnetic on/off feature. This model will ship with a new residue-free, secure locking adhesive courtesy of 3M. The material is also completely removable and reattachable, according to Pad & Quill. “Peel off the cover, line up your iPad, and push down. That’s it! It is installed.”
Along with the artisans signature subtly placed in every case, the new 10.5-inch Leather Oxford will ship with Pad & Quill’s usual 25 year warranty in tow, plus a 30-day money-back guarantee. But after going hands on with a number of its products including the Leather Roll Top Backpack for MacBook/iPad, trust me, these things are made very well and feel even more expensive than they are.
As always, it is nice to see Pad & Quill get its high-quality options up and available for consumers to make purchase decisions as early as possible. The new 10.5-inch Oxford is now up for pre-order in whiskey and chestnut for $129.95. It is scheduled to begin shipping in late July.
Pad & Quill also has a Contega Linen iPad Pro 10.5 Case for $119.95 and the Contega Thin iPad Pro 10.5 Case for $99.95, both of which are shipping in late July as well
If that’s a little pricey for you or you’re just looking for something to tie you over until more options hit the market, be sure to hit up our roundup of the best cases available for Apple’s new 10.5-inch iPad Pro.
