Not sure which of the following I want:

I want protection on the go, and ease of use...on the go.

I already have an Zagg InvisibleShield, so that's covered.

1. http://www.zagg.com/leatherskins/ipad.php#tan-alligator

2. http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/elan-passport-ipad

3. http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/elan-sleeve-ipad

4. http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC361ZM/B?fnode=MTc0MjU2Mjc&mco=MTc0Njk4ODM

5. http://www.goincase.com/products/detail/book-jacket-cl57511

6. http://www.goincase.com/products/detail/cl57513

7. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Scosche+-+DoubleDuty+Case+for+Apple%26%23174%3B+iPad%26%23153%3B+-+Black/1117989.p?id=1218222797185&skuId=1117989

-------------------

#1 would easily go hand in hand with #2 or #3; and #1 would be rendered useless w/ #4.

#3's sleeve looks like but can't really use it on the go...and I have to admit when I walk into an Apple store and see the employees with their iPad's in their Apple Case on their left arms I'm kinda impressed...but it's so damn ugly (Sorry, opinion)! And it looks like it isn't that much of protection, unlike #5.

#7 looks kinda cool but is sold out everywhere.

I'm planning on making this purchase asap...Kind words are kindly appreciated. :o

I am very happy with my Zagg Leatherskin, it let's me us my iPad without added bulk. And the leatherskin feels nice and protects it from scratches. I have a nice leather targus case that I carry it around in.

Thank you so much for the reply, I currently have the Zagg plain tan leatherskin and do enjoy it quite a bit. I've learned that the iPad is a very sturdy, strong machine considering my 2 yr. old baby brother has dropped it a few times (w/ only a leatherskin on the device). In terms of Leatherskin, I like the look and perhaps feel of the Alligator one, which is why I included it in this thread...

However currently my biggest concern at the moment is portability and ease of use on the go. This primarilly means easily getting to my OmniFocus app while at a red light, or walking down a hallway heading to class.

Since posting this thread i've been scouring YouTube to observe how the Wireless bluetooth keyboard fairs w/ an iPad and though must admit it would make typing essays and what-not a whole quicker, my biggest daily concern is ease of use, and the on-screen keyboard is more than fine for my needs.


I guess i'm essentially saying, #6 is out for me.

The Scosche DoubleDuty is awesome. It is actually the same case as the Yoobao MagicCase and I can recommend it highly.

Too bad it seems to be sold out everywhere including Meritline.

If you can wait for this case, it's awesome. Check scosche.com possibly.

I would tell you to go with the Apple iPad Case but since you've got a Zagg on, it will color it blue :mad: :D

You wouldn't happen to have the Schosche DoubleDuty would you?

I've been searching online for real-world usage; whether it be a YouTube review or any single photo out-&-about. This case is really appealing now for me.

I've gone for months, since day 1 really, without an Apple iPad type of case and have just realized that is the type of case that I want. I'm just not too sure about the protection it offers and the stains/markings it catches ever so often.

The apple case will stain your Zagg blue is what he was saying.
