White is the quintessential Apple color. Both my iPhone 3G and 3Gs are white and I’ve owned a bunch of white iPods too. White accessories just make me think Apple so it was with a certain amount of nostalgia that I began to test the iPad Leather Flip Case – White from GearZap.com.
Let’s face it, we all can’t afford $200+ Vaja leather cases for our iPads. For many the expense of the iPad alone just about breaks the bank. But you still need something to protect your invest and why shouldn’t it be something that looks good while doing so?
The iPad Leather Flip Case is a stylish case that offers a good amount of padding for your iPad and includes several interior slots to store credit cards, IDs and other items as well.
The case uses a magnetic closure method to secure the vertical flip over cover to the back side of the case.
The iPad slides into a large sleeve that’s lined with suede micro-fiber. It protects all of the non-viewable area of the iPad’s screen.
The exterior of the case features a “pebble” grain leather pattern that’s soft to the touch.
All of the iPad’s buttons and ports are accessible while the iPad is inside the case.
The credit card slot holder also acts as a had sleeve. It’s elastic and forms to your hand for grip when using the iPad off your desk.
Priced at €14.95 ($18.33 at time of review) this case won’t break your bank but what it will do it make sure you iPad doesn’t break while you tote it around town and it’ll look good while doing so. The white color probably will need some gentle cleaning every once and a while but that bright white, Apple like color, is sure to attract some attention.
