    I gotta come out just to say this Zugu case is really holding up well for me. Fits perfect and has good protection but extra thin! The stand is so strong it amazes me. I love the pencil holder because you have room for an ink pen!. I wasn't a fan at fist and kinda defaulted to this one. it's a really smart and practical folio cases.

    I have one for my 10.5 and it is a great case. I like the multiple stand angles that are rock solid. Also, that the cover faces to the back of the iPad when opened as a stand - let's me put a Bluetooth keyboard closer to the screen than with a cover that faces forward. A very nice case, well made.

    It's an interesting case. The thing that would worry me is that the side of the cover that folds back onto a surface is the same side that is against your display. I would be concerned it could pick up debris and then cause a scratch on your screen.

    Isn't that true of all cases and covers that fold back?

    I'm not a fan of cases in general. They add too much bulk and weight. I love smart covers but Apple chose not to make one for the 2018 iPad Pros.

    IDD.

    I'm waiting for this to come back into stock https://www.speckproducts.co.uk/app...-11-inch-ipad-pro-cases/IPP11-BF.html#start=1

    I had Speck's case for the 10.5. I like the fact it has a catch, so there is no chance it can fly open on its own. I don't know if it will last years without breaking, I didn't have my 10.5 long enough to find out.

    I also appreciate the little burs it has on the bottom edge so when you have it open they dig into the case so it doesn't slide and collapse. A major problem with my current ESR case.

    I will never user an Apple Pencil so that's not a factor.

    Ok. You sold me. After reading this thread, I ordered one - and wow! You were right. This Zugu case is amazing!

    Yeah it's a pretty good game on fit and form. I only wish it had a hand strap because I love reading folio style.

    A hand strap would be nice. But I'm happy with being able to rest the whole thing on my lap at the right angle. I really like it so far. Thanks for the recommendation!

    I'm not a fan of rugged cases, usually prefer slimmer ones since I dont really need the extra protection. But this one got me curious...the kickstand looks so convenient for working on a desk or on your lap.

    My only concern is, is it comfortable to use in portrait mode holding it with one hand while standing? Feel like the added weight + front cover flapping around would make it tiresome after a while.

    Also I hate those huge bumpers on the edges, I like my front to be flush or with minimal bezels. Also think those might get on the way while drawing or taking notes since my hand will be resting over them at times, unevenly..even considered the possibility of trimming them with an exacto knife lol but that will most like end in a disaster

    I rarely use my iPad in portrait. The cover does make it uncomfortable and difficult to hold in portrait. OTOH, you can easily hold it in landscape with one hand, just leaving the kickstand up and putting the case on three Palm of your hand.

    Cover sits flat and magneticly attached to the back. There are no bumpers on it and the case is very slim for what you get I.e. screen protection, and a very solid stand. Plus a pen holder.

    Really? In all the reviews I saw they claim the front doesnt doesnt magneticly attaches to the back while open, but rather flaps around.
    And by bumpers I mean this:

    Not only I find those ulgy, but I feel like they might get in the way while drawing since my hand would be resting over them in times

    Well all I can attest to is that My case screen cover does lay flat. And as to the “Raised” edge which I like so much. If it’s too much for your writing, well this case isn’t for you. Cases are an extremely personal thing, give and take for protection, weight and utility. I mostly use my iPad in portrait mode. It’s nice to have a pocket on the case that can hold the apple pen and an ink pen. In landscape mode the case is extremely solid and stable. This case works for me and my personal profile. No harm, no foul if it doesn’t meet your needs.
