The Best Leather iPad 9.7 Case Available?
Leaders in the film, music, television and medical industries have made our Premium Leather iPad 9.7 Folio their leather iPad 9.7 case of choice. Like all our Premium Leather iPad models our executive folio features a quality unmatched in the industry. A real sense of care in the manufacture goes into each piece.
Pieces made from our distressed vintage hides are truly "one of one" or one of a kind, due to the unique tanning of the vintage leather. Each area of the hide is slightly different containing different amounts of oils, marks and details. When the panels are cut for sewing, no two pieces of the same panel have the same finish. This yields a uniqueness to each and every Vintage model induing no two are alike.
Whether you chose vintage or black, timeless, professional design of exquisite taste is standard. Are we a bit obsessive in our attention to detail on this leather case? Dose the white stitching on the arced panels of the front and rear covers have to be so perfect? Do we need to triple dye the black interior thread? It disappears when it’s sewn to our black ultra suede liner, leaving you with nothing but screen.
You don’t become the defacto leather iPad 9.7 case for business by cutting corners. Customers choose our quality leather iPad Folios because they want a professional case that just as good as the product it's designed to carry.
The Premium Leather iPad Case by MacCase - Product Review by MacSources
There is no denying that my iPad is my favorite Apple device. I take it with me everywhere and use it frequently both for personal and professional use. I am definitely the target market for this device. In addition to enjoying my apple products, I am also fiercely protective of them.
I understand that the iPhone 5 is built to sustain everyday use. I still wanted to secure it with a case. I have felt the same way about my iPad since the day I received it as a gift. It has rarely been in my hands without some sort of covering around it. I have tried out different keyboard cases when I need to write for extended periods of time. For everyday use though, a simple, secure, stylish case it what I want. I recently became aware of MacCase, a company that specializes in creating cases for Apple products that have form and function working for the user.
MacCase started in 1999 with the creation of a portable laptop case for the original Tangerine iBook. Like the iBook itself, the MacCase laptop bag was colorful and different. MacCase still offers unique, stylish products. Chief Creative Officer Michael Santoro has taken inspiration from many sources including automobiles and aircraft interiors. The company remains dedicated to Apple customers and committed to creating premium, industry leading products specifically for them. The MacCase Collection is their newest line and includes iPad cases, laptop sleeves, flight jackets and shoulder bags.
A part of the MacCase Premium Leather Collection, the iPad Folio is a genuine work of art. Built from the highest quality hides, (textured or distressed) it has white stitching across the product. The frame of the folio is a custom stamped and welded alloyed steel. It ensures that the iPad will fit perfectly and stay secure within the case.
The interior of it is black suede, which provides protection from scratches. The interior frame does not obstruct the touch screen at all. There is an interior flap that holds the iPad securely in place. The Folio features Smart Cover technology. It will automatically wake the iPad when the case is opened or send it into sleep mode when closed. The high quality magnets make the cover closure both secure and elegant. The folio easily folds to allow for easy screen typing or movie watching.
One of the most advanced features of the Folio is the ‘SoundBoard’ speaker enhancement. There is a hard leather insert inside the cover near the iPad speaker. This bounces sounds away from the case and towards the user. This increases the fidelity and allows the use of lower volumes, thus saving battery life.
The Folio, as I stated earlier, is a true work of art. The handmade quality is unmatched and I’ve never seen anything quite like it. The leather is beautiful. I have long been a fan of the ‘distressed’ leather look. I was highly impressed when I took this piece out of the box. Most cases I’ve seen, even other leather ones, don’t have the kind of detail that this one does. The MacCase logo is embossed into the leather on the front, while Michael Santoro’s signature is on the back. The spine of the folio features the word ‘MacCase’ on it, which I feel is a nice branding touch.
Even without the tablet in it, the folio feels sturdy. I have seen so many cases that sacrifice security for style, but MacCase does not. This leather iPad case is, in my opinion, the perfect combination of elegance and safety for the iPad. The SoundBoard feature is a great addition. I have seen something similar with many newer cases on the market. But the MacCase SoundBoard speaker enhancement is there despite being hidden.
It’s great because it means I don’t have to cup my hand around the speaker to hear the audio. I can simply watch and listen to my favorite movies and TV shows without needing additional equipment or speaker assistance. The MacCase Folio is an overall great piece. It’s got fantastic style while maintaining functionality. Pictures really don’t do it justice. You just can’t appreciate the iPad Folio until you hold it in your own hands.
The MacCase iPad Folio is available for the iPad Air ($149.95). With the exceptional quality of this case, one would expect that it would cost much more than it does. One of the first cases I bought for my Apple tablet cost about $15. It was flimsy and I’ll be honest, I didn’t feel as though it protected my iPad very well. It was better than a naked iPad, but only by a little. This case is well worth the purchase price. There are many high-end leather pieces that go for thousands of dollars and aren’t as well built as the Folio.
