Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I spent way too may hours researching iPad cases, but I kept coming back to this one. I knew I wanted a folio case, since I plan to do a lot of reading on the iPad (as opposed to movie watching) and so wanted a case whose cover would fold back like an old paperback book cover, and since I don't see the point of leaving the iPad back exposed to scratching. I also wanted sturdy stands for different viewing angles, and I definitely wanted red leather. I had originally considered getting another Sena case (I have them on my iPhone and Kindle), but the Sena Florence folio case doesn't have the sleep-awake feature and it's $40+ more than this one. So, based on the positive reviews here, I ordered the AYL/Yoobao case. I just received it, 4 business days after ordering it, and am really pleased. I got the red case, and it is gorgeous (nicer, I think, than a naked iPad). The leather is beautifully pebbled and the color is a nice soft red, not garish or cheap looking. The case fits perfectly--all the openings are unobscured--and it feels lovely--not too bulky, but with enough heft to protect my hands from the sharp edges of the naked iPad (I found holding the naked iPad for reading really painful and difficult). And you can't beat the price, especially for something of this quality! The issues mentioned in earlier reviews (loose flap, objectionable smell) are non-existent; the flap is nice and secure and it smells like good leather should smell. This is a terrific iPad case!
