    "... Saddleback Leather no longer discriminates against any cow on the basis of age, appearance, lactose intolerance... if the beast has a natural marking or brand, or whether or not they worship the Divine Bovine."

    Truth is, sometimes beauty is only skin deep... like with cows. Their poetry is notoriously terrible, but man, their hides are nature's art. We don't believe that flawlessness equals beauty. Beauty is when we're able to see something as it really is.

    This is true with humans too. There are lots of quality people who are really beautiful not in spite of, but because of the marks life has given them.

    We took both of our iPads driving and flying on a trip through Scotland, Kenya, Rwanda, Australia, and New Zealand over a period of two months, and our iPads kept the kids quiet and entertained during boring stretches between destinations. It kept Suzette and myself entertained too, because we like to read books on planes, but we realized pretty quick that when it comes to our uncoordinated kids the iPads would need a little more protection. These protective cases are essential essential no matter what, but especially when traveling with kids. The covers kept our iPads functioning perfectly well across the world and in a variety of climates.

    I'm Back!

    by - verified purchaser |
    I have to re-post and take back what I had posted earlier about the new ipad case. I returned one that I thought just did not live up to what I was used to from SB. I had become an old tobacco snob. I was so taken with the old look and did not even want to look or listen to the thought of "the change!" Anyway, the great customer care (as always) sent me a new one and I have to say that I love it! I apologize for posting the "poo" color. Maybe I got a bad one because I love this one. Anyway, just wanted to say that I'm back and thanks for the great customer service. Onward! Oh, please take off my old post. Ughhh!

    Awesome!

    by - verified purchaser |
    I'm not one who writes reviews. I've always figured people are capable of making their own decisions. This is my third item from Saddleback, and it is awesome. Everything they make is awesome. I wish I could afford one of everything. That is all.

    Excellent, but...

    by - verified purchaser |
    I have no problems at all with this case. It's beautiful and gets many compliments. The craftsmanship is second to none, the same as on my two briefcases. My problem is with the iPad itself. Updating to iOS 7.0.2 and now it won't stay online at all. Worked flawlessly before the upgrade. Apple's forums are full of complaints, but Apple will not even acknowledge the issue. Garbage tablet, wonderful case.

    Best Out There!!!

    by - verified purchaser |
    This was my First Saddelback purchase that would lead to many, many more. The quality of craftsmanship is unmatched, as well as the quality of the raw materials (materials definitely help the man). I've had this product for about 15 months now, and it is just now starting to finally soften up and break in. If you don't use the leather milk on a regular basis, you're missing out. It makes all the Saddleback products really pop and look magnificent. Thanks Dave!!!

    Amazing iPad Case

    by - verified purchaser |
    This case is just what I needed for my iPad. I had a thick case before that didn't stand up to a short drop, but this case is rugged and certainly will stand up to use. The color and the leather smell is great. Now I just need to get one for my wife.

    Quite useful

    by - verified purchaser |
    This case fit the iPad III just as advertised. The leather straps close up very securely. You don't ever miss the edge magnets. Old school closures have been around a long time because they work! Although I have never chucked my Saddleback protected iPad across the room, as Dave does in his video, I am quite sure it will survive if accidentally dropped.

    iPad 4 Compatible!

    by - verified purchaser |
    I purchased my Saddleback iPad Case in 2010 for my iPad 2. I've loved it ever since. Recently, I purchased a new iPad w/ Retina Display (or iPad 4). Case still fits like a charm! I'd be very reluctant to get an iPad in any other size as I love the case so much. Excellent stuff.

    Great Looking Protection

    by - verified purchaser |
    I bought this case because I'm a true road warrior, logging well over 100,000 air miles every year. A lot of the iPad cases I've seen in my travels don't look like they would hold up or provide the protection I need. I've received a number of compliments on this case, and like all Saddleback products, it just keeps looking better as it gains character. It's also the coolest looking iPad case in the room, no matter where I go. If you want real protection from the hazards of real world travel, get one of these.

    I got it 6 months ago. I have no complaints. It takes a serious amount of abuse. If you want something you can toss around, then this is the case for you. It is the bee's knees!!!

    11 out of 10

    With out doubt the one thing I get asked about when travelling more than ever before is this ipad 2cover its simply the best there is.
    It takes all the knocks with ease and just gets better and better with age at first I was protective of it but now! well it??????s like a well worn leather jacket that I never want to take off.
    If you think its going to be good then your going to be half right because in my humble opinion it will be twice as good as you hope it will be.
    Yes you have to pay a little for importing it but its worth every penny and it knocks any thing you can find in the uk for a six.
    I am eager to get the ipad mini case and cant wait for it to get here.
    Thank you to all the folk who make these products your amazing.

    What a great case!

    by - verified purchaser |
    Since moving my iPad into its new leather address, my piece of 21st century technology has now acquired a more tactile, friendly, and overall, a whole new personality!

    The only negative thing that I noticed on opening the iPad case was that the bottom of the top cover was cut slightly shorter than the top so that it doesn't line up with the base. The more I look at it, the more it's starting to irritate me. I think this would not have happened if I had the opportunity to compare more than one case side by side, say in a store where I can see and compare and decide what I am willing to live with. But when purchasing over the Internet, it's always a gamble. On the whole though, it is a great product and I would highly recommend it!

    Very good!

    by - verified purchaser |
    I have just received the case and indeed it needs some breaking in but it looks absolutely fabulous and of very good quality. The fit is very snug for an iPad 4th generation. It does add some bulk but that is the price to pay for quality leather and nukeproof design.

    It took about 1 week to arrive in France and passed through customs without issues and without having to pay extra taxes.

    For those wanting some more info about the color: I hesitated between DCB and Chestnut and went with Chestnut as it was the first in stock. I worried a bit that it would be too red but it's not. It's a very classy, warm dark brown leather. I'm very pleased with the color.

    All in all I'm very pleased with my purchase and I would recommend this case to a friend.

    Thanks.

    1 year down, 99 to go

    by - verified purchaser |
    I received my iPad 2 case from Saddleback more than a year ago now, in glorious dark coffee brown. It's quite simply, the best case I could have hoped for, and well worth the premium.

    The case is frequently admired by friends, colleagues and complete strangers. Aesthetics aside, my iPad 2 has now survived numerous knocks and drops without issue. In the same period of time, two colleagues (with other cases) have shattered the screens of their iPads.


    Thanks Saddleback.

    Chestnut for the New I-Pad

    by - verified purchaser |
    I ordered this to surprise my wife, I got her an I-Pad for Christmas and bought a $30 black cover. She loved the I-Pad, but said "The cover is Black, I am a girl". I decided to order her this, she absolutely LOVES it. The quality is Top Notch and we both love the Chestnut Color.

    I will be ordering more goods, probably the Briefcase next along with a few belts.

    Tobacco Brown

    by - verified purchaser |
    I bought this about a year ago. Fantastic case! Much sturdier than anything else I have seen. Really takes the abuse from me, my wife, and daughter when traveling. I condition it when I think about it - it get's better with age - nice patina.

    Thanks Dave!

    Dark Coffee Brown iPad Case

    by - verified purchaser |
    This is my third and last leather case for my iPad. Great leather with no synthetic filler or short cuts in materials. I use my iPad daily for news, reading, shopping, and work. Much heavier than past covers I have bought, but fully covers the iPad which is secure in the sleeve. If you want a light case this is probably not the case for you. I was afraid I wouldn't like the closure straps, but they hold the case securely closed and act as a stand when needed when the cover is turned back. For my use this is turning out to be perfect. My husband is getting tired of me telling him how much I like this case. The color is a perfect deep brown.

    LOVE IT, tons of comments on it does not do it justice, it has saved me many times when I have dropped the thing, A little sad it will FAR outlast the technology inside it, thus rendering my 100 year warranty useless :-)

    Perfect iPad case

    by - verified purchaser |
    I am an iPad geek. I started with the iPad 1 and found a workable case after trying several. Then my iPad 1 needed to an update, so I grabbed the iPad 4. I needed a new case, and couldn't find one I liked. I decided to give the Saddleback iPad case a try, because I love my other Saddleback items so much. This is the ideal iPad case. I don't know why I am surprised. It's Saddleback! It protects the iPad well. My new iPad 4 survived a drop from chest-height without any issue. It secures the iPad without any incling that it could fall out of the case. There is no infringing on the camera by the case, and all buttons, plugs, light sensors and microphones are easily accessible. The closure stays closed and can work as a stand for both typing and for video watching. Moreover, the you can slide your hand in the back of the case and it will stay on your hand without having to grip the corner. (I'm having difficulty explaining this feature, but what I do is bend the cover back and thread the straps through the closures so that the screen is visible. Then I take one of the straps out of the closure, and slide my hand diagonally between the two faces of the leather. This allows me to 'mount' the iPad on my hand for comfortable use.) I've gone through a series of iPad 1 cases and hated the thought of trying to find a good case for my iPad 4. Thankfully, Saddleback was my first and only iPad case for my new tech. The only thing I wonder is what I will do with the awesome leather when it outlasts my iPad...
