Does anyone have this case?

I'm thinking about getting it, but I want to use it as more of a carrying case. I don't want to strap the iPad in, just place the iPad with smart cover in the case and use it for traveling with the iPad.
I think it's a nicer and more unique way to travel than using a generic sleeve.

I'm just wondering if you think the straps would get in the way when using it this way? It's pretty expensive so any feedback you would have before I buy it would be much appreciated.

I tried this case when I first got my iPad 2. It's beautiful but I didn't like the way the iPad is attached (leather corner holders--elastic strap at the top). I didn't feel it was very secure.

That having been said, I think it would work fine as a fancy zippered sleeve for the iPad (perhaps one with a Smartcover). I almost used it in this fashion but in the end decided on a different kind of case.
