View Full Version : [iPad Mini] Moshi VersaCover Alternative?

Hi, I'm really liking how Moshi's VersaCover looks for my prospective iPad mini (that is, I haven't bought the iPad yet but I know I will be picking one up later this spring) but my sister, who I'll be sharing the iPad with, doesn't like the pastel colors. Are there any similar cases out there that might have better color options?

I really like the smart cover-style front piece and even more so how the case can stand up in portrait or landscape. 360 degree (that is front and back) coverage is a must (my sister will be bringing the iPad to Costa Rica to volunteer at a wildlife sanctuary). The magnet on the back to hold the cover in place is also a plus but not entirely necessary. Anything to fit this criteria?

Here's a link to the VersaCover to refer to: http://www.moshimonde.com/product/versacover-for-ipad-mini.aspx

I love my versacover, and its not pastel at all.. Mine is dark blue, and they also make a gray one. I did a lot of research and there really isn't a good alternative that I know of!

The only similar case I came across is the Incipio LGND for iPad Mini (http://amzn.to/15JPRHC):

Yet it only supports two different angles in landscape:

However, the blue (http://amzn.to/X329cl) and gray (http://amzn.to/UUICfF) VersaCovers aren't that pastel-y:

Thanks to those who replied. I ended up going with the Denim Blue VersaCover.

You will love it. It's the best case out there for reasonable money IMHO.

The denim blue actually looks very good on my black iPad mini.
