Default Lightweight sleeve cover for home use?

I currently have a Poetic Slimline case for my Nexus 10 (with hard back and magnetic cover), but it makes the tablet quite heavy to hold when I'm using it as an e-reader. Since it very rarely leaves the house I'm now looking for a lightweight sleeve which I can slip it into when I'm not using it - preferably a simple, soft sleeve with no zip. It's just to give it a small amount of protection from things being placed on top of it when it's lying on the table or sofa. Can anyone recommend anything? (in the UK)

I had a moko slim when I owned my nexus 10 for a short period of time. I loved it AND it was cheap. I dont know how hard it is to get across the pond but I believe dodocase makes a classy looking leather sleeve thats slightly padded. Only bad thing is it's pretty expensive ($65 US).

Thanks for the reply. The moko slim looks pretty similar to the poetic slimline case that I already have - it adds alot of bulk to the tablet. Unfortunately the $65 price tag for a dodocase rules it out - I'd personally never spend 20% of the price of the tablet on a case!

Lol agreed. At 20% the cost of the tablet its an awfully steep price... Check amazon for faux leather sleeves. I want to say I've seen some for mega cheap. Or maybe the Google play store still has the official cover- that would be nice because it integrates into that peel off back panel by the camera and barely adds any weight. But then it only protects the screen...

I know you didn't want a zip but this is what I am using. Gives some protection when not in use but no extra weight when using the tablet.

Works great.

Thanks for the suggestion. I usually leave the tablet on charge when it's not in use, which is the main reason for not wanting a zip as it would get in the way. I know I could leave it unzipped, but it would just be simpler to find a sleeve that the tablet slides into from the top. Like a large sock, I suppose.
