Taipan Spacesuit Sleeve – iPad Accessory Review

Throughout in 2010 we’ve reviewed several iPad accessories. There are numerous options to cover up and protect your iPad. Many organisations offer different style of sleeves and book-style cases.

Some folks wish to buy accessories that will prevent scratches and will absorb impacts when carrying around the iPad. The booq Taipan Spacesuit XS aims to shield your iPad while providing an attractive iPad sleeve.


Taipan Spacesuit XS sleeve is constructed out of elegantly textured smooth neoprene using a silky sheen that protects the iPad which is slim enough to slide into any bag, backpack or purse. The silky-smooth 3mm neoprene supplies a cushioned skin on your iPad along with a soft inside with a non-scratch interior lining. The sleeve comes with a durable YKK zip

The iPad sleeve measures 10.6 x 8.5 x 1-inches, that will not only match your iPad, however it may also fit netbooks up to 9.6 x 7.5 x 0.5 inches. The Taipan Spacesuit XS will come in three colors: black, silver and berry.

The Booq Taipan Spacesuit XS is roofed by 5-year warranty on materials and workmanship.
What we liked: Stylish design which has a 5-year warranty. It works well to defend your iPad inside your laptop bag, backpack or purse. The silky-smooth interior neoprene gives a cushioned skin for the iPad plus a soft inside using a non-scratch interior lining. Booq usually makes good quality products, so we don’t expect any quality difficulties with this iPad sleeve.

What we didn’t like:

The sleeve is designed to fit the naked iPad with very little room to spare. In order to tote around other items using your iPad, you barely have any extra space for the sleeve. There isn’t any exterior or interior pockets.

To buy or not to buy:

The?booq Taipan Spacesuit XS should are very effective to guard your iPad wherever you go. The padding isn’t created to protect your iPad from hard drops, but provides enough cushion to guard the iPad from getting scratched by keys and anything you’d like to take with you with your travel bag. It comes with a nice design and it’s really very light-weight. For $29.95 is a superb buy to your iPad.
