Most leather iPad cases look nice. Gander at the edges, though, and they're nowhere near as thick as you'd like to really offer adequate protection. That's likely not the case with the Saddleback Leather iPad Case, which boasts extra-beefy leather that they claim to be thicker than those used for conventional work and cowboy boots.
How thick is the leather? It rulers up anywhere from 2.0- to 2.2-mm along various areas, making for one of the thickest case materials I've seen for the iPad. They used 100% full-grain boot leather, too, which happens to be a more durable variety than the top-grain, genuine and bonded types most common accessories employ.
The Saddleback Leather iPad Case takes on a folio form (10.5 x 8.5 inches), with a flap cover to go over the screen when not in use. It uses pigskin lining (the second toughest hide on the planet) for interior protection, with the option for suede if that silky style is more along your alley. Stitching the entire thing is accomplished using heavy-gauge, marine-grade industrial thread.
It uses a strap-hinge closure, avoiding the inclusion of any breakable parts, such as zippers and buttons. The strap-hinge also doubles as a latch when setting the iPad up on a viewing platform.
Available in chestnut, dark coffee brown, carbon black and tobacco brown colors, the Saddleback Leather iPad Case retails for $104.
