So I just received this case and I have to say it is amazing. The build quality of the case is outstanding. You can tell that this case will stand the test of time. Also, the material on the back side is fantastic. It is sticky enough that you can be assured that you won't drop the iPad Pro. Additionally, the material makes this case a true multi angle case. I ordered the Dodocase multi angle case and returned it immediately. My main problem with that case is that it wasn't truely multi angle. The iPad would constantly slide down to the furthest angle. With the Pad & Quill Contega Thin, I can have the iPad at any angle I want and it stays. I am typing this review on my lap using the magic keyboard and it is super comfortable. Lastly, being that the iPad sticks to the case using 3M adhesive, you can still see the iPad in all of it's glory. I am very happy with this case. Anyone out there looking for the perfect case, this is it.

I'm just about to pull the trigger on this for the 9.7 It looks like a great alternative to the Apple Smart Cover and it's actually cheaper.

How many times can you remove the iPad from the adhesive and re-use it?

Reading the reviews, there are 2 of the 5 reviewers which mention that not all the angles are usable because the "bumps" aren't high enough. What is your experience?

I am going to guess, based on experience with other similar adhesives in other places, that it's reusable, but not intended for routine removal. That's the genius of the magnetic connectors - you get good protection when you need it, but can instantly remove it to make the device lighter and easier to hold when you are actually using it.

Got it. Thanks. I ordered it for the 9.7 I feel better paying $80 for this vs the apple cover and case. Feels like more worth the money.

Personally I'm not a fan of these cases with adhesive as the way of holding the device in. It's a pain to get the device out once it's stuck on and you can't practically take it out on a regular basis. I have a Piel Frama case like that for one of my previous iPhones and it wasn't great at all. There is also the flip side where the adhesive is not strong enough and there is the risk of the device dropping out.

I have both the P&Q Contega Thin Case, and the Dodocase for the IPad Pro. My vote goes to the Dodocase. I like the light tray instead of the adhesive used by P&Q. The Dodocase really has only one angled viewing position when used as a stand, while the P&Q has two stand positions. However, I find the Dodocase position to be more practical for viewing and typing. Both P&Q positions are too upright to use for typing. If you try and use a position on the P&Q other than one of the two bumps, it slides flat. Both cases are made very well and nice to look at. I just find the Dodocase to be more functional.

Been using the Contega Thin Case and have to say I really like it. I haven't had issues removing it with the adhesive and ordered a few extra adhesives for down the road.

Agree that a light tray might be more practical, but it's a thin case that looks sharp considering I have switched from typing in Evernote to writing in Penultimate with the Apple Pencil.

Now if I could just find a sleeve to transport both the iPad and smart keyboard (or they made a smart keyboard that wasn't a cover....

I have been using the leather version of the pad and quill case (oxford) for my ipp 12 since january or so (I cant remember the exact date and it took a few weeks to be sent) and there have been no problems with the adhesive.
