Product Review: GOcase Origami Sleeve

This invention looks like a thin folder but opens to become a sturdy iPad stand.

What Is it: The GOcase Origami Sleeve and Stand for tablets.

Pros:

  • Folds down flat when not in use
  • Sets up as a stand in seconds
  • Magnetic closures hold the sleeve in place
  • Waterproof material on the exterior
  • Micro-suede lining on the interior
  • Folds into 45 degree viewing or 22 degree typing stands
  • Doubles as a sleeve to protect your tablet

Cons:

  • A little pricey if you pay full retail, but at the time of publication the GOcase was on sale on both Amazon and GOcase’s website.

How it Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Props up your tablet for reading, working, or watching movies and protects it when it’s not in use.
  • Value: 7/10. If you get the GOcase on sale, it’s a great value for a stand/sleeve combo product.
  • Portability: 10/10. We love how this folds down completely flat.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. The origami style is very cool.
  • Final Verdict: The GOcase fulfills your sleeve and stand needs and is perfectly designed for travel.
