One of the first cases I bought for the iPad mini was the RooCase that had a similar style, but just did not get it right. So when I saw that the Yoobao case was available for the iPad mini, I had to order it.

I received it today and was not disappointed. The case claims to be genuine leather, and I have no reason to dispute that. I am not a big leather guy, so I can't confirm one way or the other, but I can confirm that it's much nicer than any of the faux/vegan leather cases I have used.

The fit is nice and does not overlap the bezel or limit use.

The cut-outs work nicely and really appreciate how the speaker area was done.

The stand and keyboard modes work as advertised.

I am now torn between this case and the Devicewear Ridge... I like the multiple stand options of the Ridge, but my cons for it would be that it's a bit heavier than the Yoobao and the black interior microfiber on the Ridge gets/looks dirtier easier. Decisions, decisions...

I prefer the Yoobao iPad cases that you clip in instead of slide in.
I don't know if they will make one like that but if they do I'll buy it.
I've owned nothing but Yoobao clip in style iPad cases for my previous iPads (1,2) and they were great.

too much cover of the bezel for me......

Ultimately I came to the same conclusion and went back to using the Devicewear Ridge.

That's a subpar stitching job and the leather quality is really bad, too.

The Kavaj Dallas for iPad (http://amzn.to/XxeAeF) and iPad Mini (http://amzn.to/XM8kSi) is the real deal with quality stitching and fine leather, and probably stand model for the Yoobao:
