    Only had it for a few minutes but I can tell I'm going to love this case. Pics below!

    Wow, that is pretty! Did you get the one with the magnets? What color brown did you order? Does it fold back for one-handed reading? Sorry for all the questions, but very interested in this one myself!

    First impressions...

    - Adds little weight/bulk
    - I can't believe how nice the leather feels. Better than what I remember from vaja.
    - fits perfectly
    - when they say 30 day wait they definitely mean 30 day wait. Actually it took even longer than the 30 business days they quoted. Buy in the end it was worth.
    - At $200 it is definitely a luxury item but well worth it!


    Yes I did get the magnetic version. Works as expected. Magnets are quite strong which pleased me.

    This is the London bridge color.

    Beautiful looking case. Is the back case snap in? How much of the bevel does it cover?

    Needs a bit more coverage on the ipad for $200.

    Why? More money should equal more protection? Personally, I've been looking for a case that doesn't disguise the iPad's own design, especially the machined bevel around the outside edge. This case seems to do that perfectly. That said, I have owned a few Vaja cases in the past and found their customer service to be beyond awful. That -- not the quality, which is the best I've seen -- is what usually prompts me to look elsewhere these days.

    For the OP, beautiful case -- congrats. Someone else asked you about whether it folds back for one-handed reading and that's my question as well.

    Looks gorgeous! I've wanted the iPhone 5 version of the Pelle for a while, but like this cover, I think it's priced beyond what i'd be willing to spend on a case, unfortunately.

    Congratulations, great choice!
    So far, I had 3 or 4 Vaya cases myself - they're the best money can buy IMHO.

    Case is nice, but you can almost buy a iPad mini with the cost. :/

    Everyone goes through the VAJA case phase where they have to have the beautiful leather case.

    But over time most realize that their cases are heavy, and rather impractical for the price charged.

    The case above actually sticks to the back of the iPad. Great…but what happens when I want to use my iPad without the case?

    I'm also curious if it can be taken off and re-applied?

    I take mine off of the case all the time without any issues. The adhesive pad works very well and haven't had any issues with sticking it back on.

    Nice Case!

    Hey smithwicks, awesome case! I've been thinking about getting the same one for my ipad air but can't decide on a color. I keep going back and forth between their bridge orange, london, caramello, and tabaco colors. I really like the color of your case, but it seems a lot darker than other London bridge cases that I have seen online, and on the vaja website. It may be just the lighting though... Could you possible post a few more pictures of the case in better lighting/natural daylight. I would be very appreciative! I would also welcome your opinions on the other color options. Thank you in advance!

    Looks darker than what I remember on their site.

    Price is just price. If you need more coverage then buy a case with more coverage. Cases aren't sold by the inch.

    Consider the source. Vaja's not the brand to buy if you're looking for a case on the cheap. There are plenty of options in other budget ranges.

    Citation? I'm sure some do and some don't. I don't always use Vaja but I've never had problems with weight, practicality or price. If price was an issue I wouldn't have ordered from them in the first place.

    Once you've had a Vaja case you'll never go back.

    Pricey? yepper. Worth it? Totally.

    I prefer Piel Frama, similar quality as Vaja and shipping is way cheaper to Australia anyway.

    When I bought this case it cost me $10 shipped.

    You paid $190+ more for the leather. Follow the link and you will see why my case is more practical. Oh, and it weighs less that 4 oz.

    Now, the Vaja leather is nice…but $190 nice?
