At $79 I expected it to be a gorgeous leather and very functional, but it's not. It really does not feel like leather at all, and I just have not been able to prop the iPad up on a table with the case, the way that I expected I could.. I am thinking about returning it for a refund.

They brought one out from t I decided to get this case after asking an Apple employee if I could see one 'in action' so to speak. They brought one out from the back that had an iPad Air in it. I immediately decided to get it. I have prior experience with the Smart Case for a previous iPad (3) and didn't like it because the lip at the top seemed wide, clunky, and bulky. It could be that the new smaller form factor of the iPad Air allows it's Smart Case to be more pleasing. The top lip is narrow (like the bezel) and you hardly notice it. For my previous iPad I had both the Smart Case and a Smart Cover which I used in combination with a Belkin Snap Shield Secure. The Belkin case is a low profile shell (for the back) that was designed to accept the Smart Cover. I bring this up because it was my intention to use both setups and alternate them but since I disliked the older Smart Case so much I ended up never using it. For this new Smart Case, this is the only case I intend to get as I really like it. It's pricey as leather is the only choice, but if I had gotten the less expensive Smart Cover, I would have gotten an additional shell for the back so there would be extra cost there. I don't mind paying a little extra for a good solution like this.

As a stand, the case is quite stable once the hidden magnets are engaged. Follow the pictures on how to fold the lid.

    The space grey iPad Air in the black case looks great.

It fits snugly, all ports line up perfectly and the cover stays firmly in place. It is comfortable to hold and looks great. If you purchase this in a retail store and the camera and ports do not line up perfectly the packaging is incorrect. It should either read "Air 2" on the front of box or "Air 2nd Generation" on the back of the box. If it does but does not fit perfectly the package is mismarked.

The case has held up very well and for being soft leather, it has not really shown much wear. I especially like the way it feels to hold it as you really feel like you won't loose your grip. The slim profile really adds complete protection to the iPad without adding much bulk.

    I have read some of the negative reviews and I must admit, I would have given this produce 5 stars if it did a better job of standing up when you fold the cover so it will stand up upright for viewing movies. Of course with the lightness of the Air compare to the 4th Generation iPad, it is just as easy to hold sometimes.

    All in all, it is not cheap, but it has proven to be a good investment to protect the iPad and it has stood the test of time.
