Urban Armor Gear for ipad air

Tempting deal:

$10 off and free international shipping.

No reviews online. I guess since it's very new.

Actually iLounge has a review on this case. If I remember correctly they gave it a B+ on the review.

I only found a review on the mini version:

The ipad air is still in the first look stage and not rated yet:

UAG does not have an iPad Mini Retina case and they are selling their year old UAG iPad Mini first generation case to customers and screwing them over.

I'm not a huge fan of the case. I love UAG cases. I have multiple colors for my Galaxy Note 3 but the major thing I don't like about it is that the flap won't stay shut. I thought since it has the on/off function, that it would stay shut with magnets but it doesn't. Also I wish they would have magnets or something to keep the flap locked onto the back when I have it opened. BUT.....I do fully trust this case to protect my ipad air if it takes a fall and for that reason is why I'm keeping it so far

To those who own the case how much does it weigh? And what's the thickness? I emailed these questions to UAG but never received a response.

Amazon had these today for $39.95 so I figured it was worth a shot.

Case is kinda thick and heavy. I have Bodyguardz Pure tempered glass installed on my air and it wont fit inside the casing, i have to Dremel the inside edges. The quality is good though but i still prefer my roocase origami slim.



Thickness comparison with roocase:










Power Button kinda hard to press(I dont know if it has something to do with the tempered glass)

I got a sample for review on amazon from UAG. I just ordered it today from their website. Be a little time before I get it and post some pics in this thread.

I got mine yesterday.

I knew it would be big and it is big.

I knew it would be heavy and it is heavy.

Looks really cool.

Flap design is just so so. I don't know how well the flap will hold over time. Holds position just OK, not good or bad.

TPU should protect it in a fall and even provides lip protection.

Still undecided if I like it or not.
