Slim Leather Case

Looking for a leather case that snaps onto the back of the iPad 2. I really like the Vaja Libretto but the price is a little high. I am like the snap on opposed to the cases that cover the front of the iPad.

I am trying a Maroo case right now. I think it has the best attachment to the ipad and very good protection. I don't think it adds very much thickness but it is thicker than a lot of cases.

Chinao, STM Skinny, Khomo, Marware MicroShell Folio, Toblino 2, Icarer are all cases that might be what you want. They have all been discussed at one time or another in this forum.

The best slim leather case is the Melkco Slimme. I have been using this for a while and I really like it a lot.

Yoobao iSlim also seems nice. Wish there were more reviews so I could pull the trigger on it.

Can you show some photos of this case? Always good to see a real photo rather than the advertising one.

Your previous post says that you've been using the Melko case for a while. Did you have a former version and are just waiting for your new one?

In either case, please share photos and your opinion again once your new one arrives..

Jisoncase replacemnt hopefully coming

I have spoken and shared a photo of a leather Jisoncase that I had received with yucky spotting and uneveness in the leather. I sent a couple of e-mails back and forth to the vendor and ended up sending it back. The vendor had a better idea of what I was talking about when he received it back and has responded saying that the case is definitely not usual and his others don't look bad like the one I received. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the replacement case will be of good quality. I really like the feel of the leather and the design of the Jisoncase. The leather is treated so it doesn't appear it will pick up every fingerprint. I'm really hoping for a good replacement. If so, this may be my favorite thin leather case. Not high end like the Vaja but a reasonable price and good design.

I'll update further once I get my replacement.

I have the iPad 2 version from my previous iPad. I like it a lot. Search for Melkco slimme on this forum and you will find the pictures and review.
