Well, I was finally able to pick up this long-awaited case, and it is quite nice: (http://www.sgpstore.com/product_info.php/products_id/1366) The leather looks beautiful and feels great. The case is very sturdy—hard, actually—and holds the iPad nicely; the fit is perfect. It wouldn't provide much shock absorbing protection if you were to drop the iPad, but it does protect the device from scratches and daily abuse. Speaking of fit, the first time you put the iPad in it's quite snug, which is a good thing. I would imagine that over time it would be fairly easy to remove the iPad for docking as the corners loosen up ever so slightly. It appears to me that this is a case that will last a long time. The inside color of the soft lining looks terrific with the brown leather, very rich. There is some embossed writing on the inside of the case which you can see in the photo on their site. Personally, I would prefer no writing, but the good news is that it's pretty subtle so it's not distracting. When you open the case, say, for reading, the cover folds back with no problem, though I would imagine that in time the leather hinge would develop some wrinkling and aging as leather is prone to do. When the case is closed it feels firm and solid, and looks pretty high end and classy when you're carrying it around. It fits nicely into the Waterfield Exo Sleeve—together making an impressive presentation. I like it. Sadly, bought it for the other half and she still prefers the Apple Case, so I plan on listing it on eBay. Hope this helps!
