    I am please with this product but there are a few things I'd like to mention with this product. It does fit well on my iPad cover but it is cumbersome when opening the iPad cover. I am unable to lay it flat on a flat surface and I end up taking it off and putting it back on. It does hold the Pencil snug to the iPad cover with no slipping. Sometimes I have to tug quite a bit to take the Pencil out of the product. The Pencil holder is just exact for you the Apple Pencil. If you have a cover or sleeve over the body of the Pencil, it will not fit into the holder. I bought a Pencil sleeve for my Apple Pencil after I bought the holder. Now I have to decide if I want to keep the sleeve or if I want to use the Pencil holder. It will be better just to buy a iPad cover with a pencil holder built in.

    I've been using this item for about two months now. The strap fits the leather case for my 12in iPad Pro perfectly; it's a snug fit, but it doesn't pinch the edges, pull, or crease. It holds the pencil in without fail, and you don't have to pull too hard on the pencil to remove it - it slides out quite fluidly. The only issue I could see is if you don't have the cap connector for the pencil. This item doesn't offer a way to keep the cap in place, should it become dislodged, but if you have the connector, it plus this item is a winning combo and an excellent alternative to a separate carrying case.

    Great Pencil Keeper

    I recently purchased an iPad Pro, along with the essential accessories in order to take advantage of the "pro" aspect of the product. Seeing that the pencil is easy to loose, I wanted something to keep it in, and able to keep it "attached" to my iPad Pro when not in use. Apple's pencil keeper is nice, but is quite pricey for what it is, and doesn't even stick to the iPad or the case. This is a much better product for about half the price! Plus, you know it won't go anywhere thanks to the sturdy strap. Another great product, Insignia!

    Essential iPencil sleeve

    Needing some way to keep my iPencil close to my iPad and reasonably protected I saw this displayed at my local Best Buy and bought it. Turns out to function perfectly in the role. Sleeve Is leather the strap is an elastic fabric. I could not find many other products on the market that do this that are not bulky and/or overly expensive. After several months in use it seems durable and still doing the job. I highly recommend it.

    Functional But Somewhat Lacking

    I purchased the Insignia Sling since it was one of the least expensive solutions to where to store my Apple Pencil with my iPad Pro. The Sling does allow you to place the Pencil into the holder for storage and slip the holder around the device. However I had two issues with it so I returned it. My first issue was there was no place to put the cap if I needed to remove it. My second issue was the elastic would soon indent the Smart Cover I have on my iPad.

    Great idea but doesn't work so well with iPad Pro

    Just to be clear, this product is great in some situations. I have the iPad Pro with keyboard. There is no easy way to attach this to this setup. If you fold the keyboard behind the iPad (when not using the keyboard), the pen, and sometimes the holder by itself, will cause the keyboard to disconnect. I tried really hard for multiple weeks to make this work and finally gave up. I am just more diligent now about keeping up with the pen in my computer bag.

    Cheaply-made, Awkwardly Positioned

    I really hoped that Apple would have made a better way to store the Apple Pencil by either making it more magnetic or including some slot in the Smart Keyboard. I bought this thinking it would be a good solution. I wasn't impressed. The material is cheap. Once strapped-on to the Smart Keyboard Case, if you fold the case to use it as a keyboard, the Apple Pencil is not in a good location for use - you have to slide it up and down to get it re-positioned depending on how you use the iPad. Would not recommend.

    Simple but good

    The Apple pencil has been a free-floating item that is easily lost. There are cases with a holder for the pencil, but not all have that. This product is a holder that will fit any case and yet securely hold the pencil, sort of a holster for the pencil on a strap or band. Simple - but it works. And that is just what I needed. I have lost one pencil and do not wish to lose another.
