New STM Kicker iPad2 Case Is Available

I just heard from STM Bags that their new ipad2 case called Kicker (formerly known as the Codex) is shipping in 3 weeks. Should be nice.

Holy crap!

This new case is a total win. The skinny was already best case on the market, but people had two small complaints: fraying material and the tab may be loose. This addresses both of them. And damn it looks really good too. Reeeeeeeaaaallllly good.

The question now is: black or mushroom? Or both?

Thank you for posting that.

Thanks for the pics. I've been wondering for months what it'd look like.

More pics

Go to support.stmbags.com and click on Images>product images>Photos per style name>kicker, there are 13 photos of the new case. It has a plastic kickstand that has two lengths, a shorter one for typing with three positions and a longer one with three positions for viewing. They've done away with the tab so the case stays closed only with the magnets. There are no pictures of the flap folded fully back, but hopefully it will lie flat in that position and maybe even be held back by the magnets.

Sorry, that link should be support.stmbags.com:

Thumb resize.

The only downside I see to this case is the large footprint needed when viewing in the most upright position. Oft times desk space is limited and this would take a lot of room. I do think I'll keep my stm skinny.

Man, the leather has a very nice kinda vintage look to it. I can't decide between mushroom and black!

STM really did a good job here. I'm freaking impressed man. I wish I could go ahead and pre-order today.

Not a fan of raised top corner tabs, prefer the cleaner full edge trims that many non bezel cover cases now use. And the stand? I like a cleaner, less obtrusive stand. but I guess that's why there are so many choices out there.

The case is not leather. It Is leather-like. Similar to the "leather" used in most cars. The leather seats in most cars are only partially leather. Usually just the surfaces that you body touches. The balance is synthetic.

Inside those two raised corners are magnets. Holds the case shut without the flap. The on/off magnet is separate inside the lid further down.

I have and love the STM Skinny case, but if you really examine this new case it may not seem practical.. (I know it doesn't for me) Look at the "kickstand", there's two functions that look like a pain to use.

I disagree. The case is still slim, doesn't cover the bezel, works as a smart cover and eliminates the one thing that most complained about: the tab. The kickstand can be used or just left folded down and the case just functions as a folio case. Seems perfect in my opinion. And I have received confirmation that when the cover is folded all the way back, it will sit flat.

I agree and it looks fantastic!

Come on STM! Release this ASAP!

Looks great! I do wish they offered more colors, though I already have the berry Skinny, and the black and mushroom are sort of meh.
