    Works well, but leather wears out

    The case is light and works well. I'm having to replace it after a year and a half because the leather is worn through in the corners. The leather is paperthin, it may give the impression of quality, but many synthetic materials are far more durable.

    The experience with this case is perfect!

    I think it is normal for some parts of a leather case to become grey when you use it after 1.5 years. This is not something to complain about. And I think that this case could be even lighter. The case made my iPad heavier. On my old tablet I also used to have a case but that wasn't with a cover, and there wasn't any noticeable difference in weight. This is nothing to complain about again. I still like it no matter what!

    Disappointed -- doesn't hold position well

    I had an old version of this cover for my iPad 2. It worked perfectly for me. This cover has fewer "slots" and when I fold it to prop up the iPad on my lap it slips out of position. Seems to hold position better on hard surfaces. I will return this as I frequently use my iPad on my lap and this case just doesn't work for me. Nice leather and feel, however.

    Don't listen to the bad reviews

    I second what another reviewer wrote here about people buying the wrong case for the wrong generation iPad Air and writing a review about the case not fitting properly. The iPad Air 2 was updated from the original iPad Air and this case fits the iPad Air 2 perfectly but apparently doesn't fit the original Air properly. Buy the right case and you'll be happy. If you're paying the money for an iPad Air 2, then pay a little extra and get this case for it. You won't regret it.

    Short term use only

    Only recommended for those who have an interest in screen repairs. Was initially quite good. After a while the case wears and unpredictably drops the ipad out whilst you are carrying it. Eventually it falls out onto something hard and the screen is cracked.

    Excellent case

    The iPhone 6 Plus leather Smart Case is by far the best I've had, and this is by far the best of the three iPad cases I've owned. It's designed well (holds the iPad up in the positions you want it without unnecessary complexity), doesn't crack in your carry-on backpack like the brittle plastic one it's replacing, it's aesthetically pleasing, and it's very well made.

    I could write a lot about problems with other too clever by half case designs, but never mind.

    These cases are very expensive, but I won't buy anything else as long as they're available.

    VERY Nice Case

    I'd read the negative reviews and studied the pictures so I knew it wasn't going to be super thin. Yes it does leave a small lip raised around the edge, this seems to be how it snaps on. I'm happy with that because it feels secure and offers a bit more protection to the edges (unlike my previous thinner plastic case).

    I assume leather that needs to hold a rigid shape can only be made so thin, I doubt Apple would have designed it thicker than it needed to be. It's much nicer than the leather/pleather folio type cases I've tried from other brands. They all had elastic corners that stretch and offer no protection in a fall, or a brittle plastic shell inside a larger case.

    It is expensive but lovely quality leather and a precision fit. I always look for cheaper iPad and iPhone cases, but end up coming back to the Apple ones.

    Beautiful case!!!

    You get what you pay for. If you are going to spend 600 or more on an iPad, why not invest a little in protecting it with a case that fits like a glove and looks great. You can hardly tell its there, it's so thin. If you have an iPad this is the case for you.

    Fantastic

    I have had this iPad with this case for a little over a year and it never seizes to amaze me how thin, light, and high quality the case is. It obviously has worn down a little but not a lot and it only makes it look more like leather. No complaints with this case.

    Very poor cover

    I have previously owned the smart case for my iPad mini 2 and this case fit the iPad perfectly. However this iPad Air 2 case does not appear to fit the iPad Air 2 very well. The case covers the bottom part of the speaker jack, the camera hole does not align correctly with the camera and the rest of the holes do not align very well with the iPad speakers, etc. The iPad also sits very deep inside the case, so this case does make the iPad look a lot bigger than it needs to. I took this back into an Apple store in Kingston and was told by 2 employees that this is the new design of the case and to just accept it. When you pay £65 for a product, especially one from Apple you expect it to be perfect, especially when 3rd party cases are able to align correctly.
