At first receipt, I loved this case. Life caught up quick and the case did not stand up to it. First failing, less than a 2 foot drop in a bag off the back of my roller luggage. Lower from right corner of MBA 13 bent, case cracked. An even smaller drop out of a chair, also in the bag, the upper rear iGlaze case cracked on both corners. Between drops, while only in use for about 5 months, 2 rubber pads disappeared from the bottom of the case. Summary - Looks great at first, doesn't last. Disappointed relative to the high cost. Maybe OK for people that just want scratch protection and good looks. Not for travelers.
