As if my credit card hasn't already gotten a workout with all of the amazing Apple products that have been released this year, now it's going to go into an extreme workout -- Pad & Quill has announced four new products, two of which are for my new favorite mobile computer, the iPad Pro.
Starting off the parade of big tablet goodies is the Contega Thin Case for iPad Pro (US$89.95, photo at top). Following the design sensibilities of the classic Contega case, the new thin case is designed to work with or without the Apple Smart Keyboard. The case is wrapped in Cranberry, Charcoal, or Linen Gray archival Buckrum linen, and the iPad Pro is held in place with the 3M clean release adhesive that is used in other Pad & Quill products. A multi-angle propping stand is designed in, and closing the case will put your big iPad to sleep. Use this link to get 10% off on the Contega Thin Case for iPad Pro.
Do you think you'll keep your iPad Pro for 25 years? If so, then the Valet Thin Leather Sleeve ($89.95, photo below) is probably something that ought to be on your shopping list. It's made with American full-grain bridle leather in Whiskey or Chocolate Brown, and has a secure flap with the signature P&Q tuck-lock bookmark accent. There's enough room for the iPad Pro nestled in an Apple Smart Keyboard, and of course there is space for the Apple Pencil as well. And it also doubles as a little prop for your iPad Pro, helpful if you're doing work and don't want to do it on a flat surface. That 25-year reference I made earlier? That's how long the Valet Thin Leather Sleeve is guaranteed.
Maybe you're going to the beach for the holidays and want to carry your tech goodies as well as some other stuff. You're going to need a bag capable of holding all that swag, and that's what the $209 Leather Tote Bag (below) is designed to do. Once again warrantied for 25 years, the Leather Tote Bag comes in Chestnut, Galloper Black, and Whiskey finishes and measures a whopping 15 x 11 x 3.5 inches in size. There's a water bottle strap inside, and two pockets as well -- one with a strap to hold a laptop (up to 15-inch screen size) or iPad Pro securely, and a zippered one as well.

The last of the four new members of the Pad & Quill family you need to be introduced to is the $319 Roll Top Leather Backpack (below). It's made of the same American bridle leather in four finishes: Whiskey, Galloper Black, Chestnut, and Chocolate Brown. This is another gift that will keep on giving, since it is also guaranteed for 25 years. Oh, yeah - it will hold up to a 15-inch laptop with ease.
