I just won an iPad Pro 11'' in a give-away so want a protective case without weighing a ton. I will use the iPad Pro 100% of the time on my lap in landscape mode so maybe different than most.

I've narrowed it down to the Zuga Muse, Otterbox Symmetry, and STM Dux Plus... in no particular order. Watching video's they all appear to meet my needs but it's hard to tell which would work best for me on my lap in landscape mode.

For owners of the above cases can you give me your experiences with each?

I have the Muse for my 10.5 & 12.9 Pro's and cases similar to the Symmetry, too. On my lap in landscape mode, I'd take the Muse hands down due to its stability. The Muse case is by far the most rock-solid stable case I've used (and I have way too many to count ...). It also has the advantage of multiple standing angles to choose from.

Thanks great to know the Muse works well in landscape on your lap! Do you try to use one of the standing angles or do you just use it flat on your lap?

Do you wish it had more protection or do you feel it has plenty?

How about the microfiber or whatever it’s called does it tend to pick up things and get your screen dirty?

I use one of the angles and which one depends on how I'm sitting - the advantage of multiple choices. As for protection, it has at least as much as any other non-heavy-duty case - probably somewhat more than average, though. I haven't had problems with the case getting the screen dirty. I've been using the cases for 2 years now and have no problems recommending them. I had an issue with the first one - the metal insignia on it - no longer used - peeled some and was sharp-edged. I emailed the vendor and they responded right away and sent a new case immediately - really outstanding support (and very nice people with a great backstory).

Since highly recommended by you guys definitely going to order one now!

The only reason I even considered the other two cases was the added protection but the Muse's protection should be good enough.
