Moshi’s Muse 13-inch 3-in-1 slim laptop sleeve is perfect for a storage compartment, but it does a lot more.

The main functionality of the Muse 13-inch ($59.95) is for storage and protection, which the attractive Caramel Brown colored sleeve does well. It’s made of high-resilience polyester and the exterior is weather-resistant vegan leather, which can be cleaned with commercial leather cleaners. Other colors are seashell white and jet black.

A nice feature lets a laptop slide into the Muse easily but not slide out. The SlipGrip opening prevents the laptop from accidentally sliding out of the sleeve, which I tested with great success.

The same front-opening magnetic closure flap turns into a 15-degree convertible laptop stand with an ergonomic design for comfort positioning when typing and browsing the web. This also keeps the laptop raised to increase airflow to keep the device cooler.

While the laptop is inside, a soft Terahedron microfiber inner lining protects the laptop from scratches, dust and dirt. A front-side storage compartment has room for a few accessories. The full outer dimensions of the Muse are 14.37-by-0.31-by-10.43 inches.


For protection, Moshi’s VersaCover Case with Folding Cover features is available for most iPads.

The VersaCover provides 360-degree protection, has a microfiber lining with a magnetic closure to protect the touchscreen when closed. The body is a shock absorbing frame, room for storing an Apple Pencil, and folds into three choices of hands-free viewing angles. It even mounts to metal surfaces for secure hands-free viewing.

Cutouts ensure access to touch controls, buttons and the camera. The iPads auto-wake and sleep functions are also supported by the VersaCover Case.

The VersaCover Case with Folding Cover ($69.95) is available in a variety of colors. Check the Moshi site for specifics on your model iPad.
