Just got one of these cases from best buy http://bodhibags.net/content/ultra-thin-smart-easel-chocolate It is a little expensive but I have to say that so far I am really impressed with this case. The leather is great and it actually smells like leather It is also extremely thin ...I just can't stress enough how thin it actually is. I never had a Vaja ipad case but I had an iphone vaja case and it was thick. Prior to this case I had the i-Con nappa leather thin book and it was terrible and then the i-CON by ASD iPad2 Carbon Fiber Case wich was a little better then the thin book but eventually it started to come off. I can't tell you how long this bodhi case will last but so far I am more then happy with it.
