The Hunt is a series that aims to find the best-in-breed products that we’re all searching for – let’s dig deeper.
It’s surprising that I have such a difficult time finding cases that I like for my technology. Everything is either too synthetic or too complicated for my taste. There are certainly a lot of options out there and I’m sure plenty of good things I have yet to discover (feel free to comment and suggest). Gear Patrol did a nice round up of options a while back which I referenced a lot (and seriously considered a few), and Lotuff makes a few really good options, but much of what I see is just too logo-heavy and or is made from materials too synthetic. I wanted something simple from natural materials that fit with all of the other stuff I wear in my daily life. For the past few years the undisputed champion of my iPad protection program has been Portland, Oregon-based The Good Flock and its simple wool sleeves. I’ve traveled all over the world with the iWooly and couldn’t be happier with it. Then came the iPad mini and I was back in the market looking for a new case.
After looking around and considering a lot of options, I eventually ended up right back where I started –The Good Flock. Its case is simple, made from only wool and leather and has minimal exterior branding – it is everything I wanted, plus it is made in the USA.
So in the spirit of site The Wirecutter I wanted to put forward The Good Flock’s iPad Mini case as the best in class.

[X] Like atmo.
Look at Defy Bags iPad case- they are handmade in Chicago utilizing recycled wool or Horween leather
Have to say, after being thoroughly annoyed by every case I used, I decided the hell with it and just got a Pelican tablet case. It’s awesome. Not the smallest, but there’s nothing more protective.
I recommended checking out Old Calgary [http://www.oldcalgary.com/], they have some slick stuff also. I have their iPhone sleeve and wallet and really enjoy the simplicity of both.
