This case has been mentioned on several threads. I thought it deserved a review. For the record, no affiliation with the company. Just a customer. Company. Evio appears to be a new company and the Harmony iPad 2 case is their first product. Other cases for the iPad and cases for other devices are apparently in the pipeline. They're headquartered in Southern California. No word on where the cases are manufactured but I assume they come from Asia. Price, Ordering, Delivery. The Harmony case can be ordered from the Evio website or Amazon (perhaps other sites.) Same price on both sites $39.99 plus $4+ shipping from Southern California to US addresses. Ordered the case on Thursday. Delivered via USPS the following Tuesday with a Monday holiday. Shipped immediately and good tracking. Arrived with no damage in a padded sleeve. Five stars. Quality. Very, very good. Appears to be high quality leather. If not, it's a very good imitation. Interior is micro-suede. Stitching is excellent. No loose threads or missed stitches. Overall feel and look is first class. I'd say it compares favorably with cases priced three times more. Only one color choice (black and burgundy). Perfect color combo imo but ymmv. Design. The design is a standard folio with a small "kickstand" built into the interior side of the front cover. Only one typing position available at about 20 degrees from horizontal. Front cover activates the sleep/wake function of the iPad 2 and holds the cover closed. Not a strong magnet, however. I can imagine it might not hold if tossed into a bag with other stuff. A bag with a dedicated sleeve, however, would work well. The hinge is leather and extends across 90% of the length of the iPad. Should be very durable. iPad slides into the interior of the case and is secured with a leather flap on one side. Fits well. The iPad isn't going anywhere once it's in the case. Conversely, it's relatively simple to remove the iPad. All ports and openings are available and appear to have been designed into the case rather than added as afterthoughts. Bulk. The front and back covers are minimally padded and add a a little bulk to the entire package compared to a SmartCover and plastic back cover. Not a major issue, though. The case fits in my Waterfield Design Travel Express bag even with the Apple Wireless Keyboard in its Origami Workstation case. (Very tight fit but it works.) On the other hand, I have a Belkin Blade Adjust stand for the iPad and the case will not fit into the slot for the iPad with the case folded over. Again, not a big problem since the cover can be draped over the back of the stand but it may be problematic for stands that hold the iPad in place tightly. Protection. It's not a "ruggedized" case (e.g. gumdrop, Otterbox Defender.) But the padding of the front and back of the case should provide adequate protection in most situations. On the other hand, the case does not extend beyond the corners of the iPad. Dropping the iPad on a corner is not recommended. Overall value. Close to five out of five stars, I'd say. Looks are a personal matter but imo it's a stunner. Hopefully, it won't sell so well that it's commonplace. Construction is first class. Functionality (with some qualifications) is excellent. Bulk is minimal considering the protection it provides. An extra pocket would be welcome but it appears that Evio is bringing out another case with that feature. Not yet available. For less than $50, it's highly recommended.
