I really like this product
on April 15, 2013
I bought this in tandem with a Poetic back cover/case for my mini. The back cover has a 'slot' if you will, that encases the hinge edge of this cover. Works great! I can yank on the cover (and I have at times) and everything stays in place, nice!
The cover itself is a wee bit odd as far as holding its form goes, but this is to be expected. THINK ABOUT IT, you're trading flexibility for rigidity. IF you want a cover that will hold this mini at all sorts of angles, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU!
Moving on, the magnetic end that keeps it closed is stinking strong. So much so, that I just discovered that I can hang the ipad, smart cover, and poetic back case on the barracks wall and/or the bathroom stall -freaking awesome because this means no more strained neck trying to read while laying down and no more "now whats the best way to set this down while I take care of cleaning duty". Simply open the ipad up and stick. Neat bonus to have enough strength to attach to ferrous surfaces...
I really like the tactile feel as well, not too vinyl slick feel and not too fake leathery/plasticy, it feels almost like a nice suede or nubuck.
Very satisfied with this and am ordering another for my wife's.
