Basically the pictures provided by Amazon tell you pretty much what you need to know. It's a very nice leather case. Mine is a bit darker and more uniform brown than the picture (and probably not quite as shiny), and there are some slight natural variations across the surface as one would expect from a natural hide product.
The inside surface is a smooth fabric as you might find in the lining of a suit jacket. No worries about scratches from it.
The padding is relatively thick so with the iPad in it the whole thing is about 1.5" thick at its thickest point (but you could pinch it down to an inch or so with resistance). It's still well proportioned and looks and feels very nice.
There's no rigid screen shield, so if you sit or drop a big rock on it, you're probably in trouble, but it will provide much better protection (especially from drops) than the standard Apple case or most of the other available cases today.
The tab that goes in the slot to act as a closure has a magnet on it that helps hold it in place when closed, but you have to insert the tab into the slot for the magnets to come into proximity and the effect is rather subtle. the closure is not primarily magnetic, the magnet just helps hold the tab in place.
It has a relatively strong "newly tanned leather" smell out of the package which I'm sure will dissipate before too long. It's a bit harsher and more chemical than what you might associate with the "smell of leather", but not bothersome.
It should be obvious, but this is basically an envelope from which you have to remove the bare iPad in order to use it. There's no way to use it in the case, and the case does not act as a stand for it, etc. Since you remove the iPad from the case for use, it won't have any additional protection from drops or other mishaps while it's in your hands.
I think it's unlikely that you would be able to insert the iPad into this case while it was in another case like a form-fitting skin. Maybe if the second case was very thin and smooth. I definitely could not get it in while in the standard black rubber apple case.
Some people may really like being able to have direct access to the bare device when using it, without any bulky/floppy case attached, but others may prefer one of the other case options which allow you to use it without removing it.
There are no additional pockets or space for other accessories, but there is a business card slot so you can have some ID with your iPad if it goes astray.
Anyhow, this case is everything I hoped it would be when I ordered it, and if you like the idea of this style of case, then you probably won't be disappointed either.
An easy five-star recommendation.
I honestly almost didn't buy it because of the brand and price. I thought, how nice can it be for $35? Well, I'm glad I tried it. It's very well made, nice quality leather that looks like it will look even better after a few years of scuffs, and it has a good bit of padding in the case so it will really protect your iPad.
It also has enough room to slide your iPad 2 in the case WITH the Apple magnetic screen cover attached. I use a stylus and my iPad to take notes, and take this into meetings instead of taking a notepad and pen... it really looks nice and gets lots of comments.
If you've been looking for a nice brown leather case for your iPad, give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
Construction is very good. Some of the weavings on the back are starting to show signs of fray from me sliding it around all the time, but in my opinion, it just gives the thing a nice vintage look. The leather is quality and hold up excellently. As the price continues to drop (was originally $60 and now down to $22 on Amazon) the Targus Hughes portfolio becomes all the better of a deal.
FITS iPad 2 with Smart Cover attached.
A bargin at $50.00. Sophisticated and business conservative.
UPDATE: This case WILL NOT FIT iPad 1 with an iPad 1 Apple case. But it WILL FIT an iPad 1 W/O a case. Just so you know.
The case itself is nice quality natural tanned leather. The feel is sturdy yet supple. The stitching is excellent. The case is nicely padded without contributing too much bulk. The closure tab does a good job of cinching and snugging everything up. In short, this is a fabulous portfolio for any iPad. Classy, rugged, protective and professional.
