Best folio style case?

Looking for a folio style case for my iPad, what is good and what isn't?
Just gonna say that I am very paranoid about scratching or damaging my iPad in any way, so I would definitely prefer a case that will cover all sides and corners. As far as material goes, I think I would be fine with almost anything except hard plastics. Thanks in advance for your suggestions

What is your budget? If none, you can go for panoply series from wekreat, I remember the classic and chamois are covered on all sides except the volume rocker and mute switch. I bought the croc and thought of recommending it to u, but since u prefer all side protection, classic and chamois are the way to go.

My bad! I just take a look at classic and chamois, they are indeed exposed on top and bottom bezel. But from my personal experience with the croc, the setup protects quite well. I have dropped my iPad many times, put in the brief case with keys and stuff, no signs of bruise or dent.
Obtw, their URL is www.wekreat.com

Just checked this out; like the Classic, but see no ordering/price info?

If it doesn't have to be "traditional" looking, the SwitchEasy CARA is a pretty nice case: http://www.switcheasy.com/products/CARA/CARA.php

The outside of the flap is technically a hard plastic, but the rest of it (parts that touch your iPad) are rubbery...

switcheasy also has the canvas for the traditional folio style, im curious about how it compares to the incase book jacket or the convertible book jacket.

how are the typing angles on each of these?

Beautiful case. How heavy is it? Do you have the plain or Alligator/Croc Leather?

I've been using the FrappeDesign executive folio for quiet a while and would highly recommend you getting one if functionality is the thing you're looking for.
