    Cool iPad2 case



    Anyone got any recommendations? Work just got me an iPad2 to replace my old iPad, and I'd like a cool case for it... I'm thinking nice leather, but I'm open to other options.


    I don't want just a sleeve. I'd like to be able to prop it up for watching videos. I like to be able to hold it or put it on a slant to write on it or sketch with a stylus.


    Thoughts?

    I've been thinking of making one (I make stuff out of leather). I could send you a picture of a sleeve I made for my macbook air a few months ago, you tell me if you like it. I've been kicking a design around in my head for a couple weeks, and making two wouldn't be out of the question.

      What's your ideal budget, Jason?

          @OnlyShawn - I really want to get into leather craft. Do you have any tips?


          @Jason - sorry to threadjack. http://www.amazon.com/Cygnett-Soft-t.../ref=pd_cp_e_1 I really like this one.

              @OnlyShawn post a pic or two here... Maybe you'll get more than one customer


              @greg_s probably in the $40-50 range


              @Glen yeah, I like that one... I like this version in leather even more: http://www.amazon.com/Cygnett-Leather-Folio-Multi-View-CY0300CIWIN/dp/B004QNUN7M/ref=pd_cp_e_1


              @gzav, I want more than just a sleeve... If I was going for a sleeve I'd probably go for the one from Rustic Leather: http://rusticleather.com/iPad_Case.html

                  I've been using this one for the past 8 months in brown

                  http://www.amazon.com/Proporta-Alumi...3523897&sr=1-3

                  It's solid, great protection, the plaid lining is cotton, and there is contrast stitching on the front cover. The 2 bumps let you tilt the screen in 2 angles (neither in document orientation, both in landscape) - but don't hold it very securely as there's nothing but friction holding it. If you jostle a little bit the screen will slip.

                  Overall I've been happy with it though.

                      ...decided I need to play with the design a bit more. Not happy with it yet.

                        @Weng, that looks pretty cool... Other ones I'm looking at:


                        http://www.hardgraft.com/products/tiltipadcase-heritage


                        Really interesting design and I love the materials... A bit pricy though


                        http://www.etsy.com/listing/83561166/stand-ipadipad2-portfolio-case-with


                        I like this one 'cause it's got space for a pad and other stuff and it's leather

                              These make it look and feel like a hardcover book. I think they are awesome. I prefer the J. Crew classic hardcover book versions, but the classic DodoCase has a bit of a leathery Moleskin journal look from my understanding.

                              Both are awesome, but that first one is the J. Crew exclusive version, at a higher price.


                              Good luck!
