This won't be very long because I don't have a ton to say about it but feel free to ask any questions you may have. My use for the iPad. Of course I will use it around the house, but the primary reason I bought it is to carry around the hospital during my clerkships. It will reside in a white coat pocket while I am walking around all day/bumping into people and things/possibly get dropped/have other things in the same pocket/etc. I originally was going to go with a case such as the Khomo on Amazon for $15. I definitely wanted something to cover the screen when not in use in case I drop it/something smacked against it/etc. I also wanted something to go around the actual iPad to protect it from drops. I liked the idea of a hard case so it would evenly distribute the force of the fall instead of flexing the iPad and causing the screen to crack. I also liked the idea of a soft/gel case to absorb some of the impact. I thought a TPU case could be the best of both worlds, but it seemed more like the worst of both. Not rigid enough to evenly distribute the force, but not thick/soft enough to absorb impact. The Khomo essentially has a hard case back so I wasn't sure what to think of it. Then I came across the Speck Durafolio. It has a layer of hard plastic and a layer of rubber. Best of both worlds. It also has a built in stand (goes a bunch of ways), looks good, covers the screen, and is reasonably priced. Feels good in the hand and it isn't too thick. I feel pretty safe having the iPad in this case. The only thing I don't really like is that it isn't the lightest case out there. Altogether it is still lighter than my original Kindle Fire with Khomo style case, but the Durafolio definitely adds some weight. Lastly, when the cover is flipped to the back so I can hold it like a magazine, it is a little annoying having the cover back there. This may get better as the case wears in, however. I got the case in black shipped for $45 through Amazon Prime. $30 more than the Khomo. But if it protects my $370 investment better, it is worth it. Again, let me know if you have any questions.
