This case met in my opinion without hesitation to its purpose. How So?
* It protects the iPad: grip, and shock and downfall safer
* Facilitates the operation enormously: one can raise in two ways, thus allowing ergonomic working. Especially if you have the iPad on the table, no longer you have to bend forward but you can sit back. Upended the bag could be a little more stable. However, my opinion is used especially prone position. It also raises the question how long the Einschiebelasche secure grip granted before wear occur.
* The quality is all right, the case looks good and the material feels high quality (even if it's not leather). The iPad fits in perfectly and all ports and controls are easily accessible. The magnetic lock works very well and keeps the case closed without any problems. The bag could be processed at most a bit better, for example in terms of seams in a few places. But does not stand out on.
* Good Value
I can only recommend highly the bag and hope that my vote one or the other facilitates the purchase decision.
PS chemical or plastic vapors I can not confirm how this was apparently in some while unpacking the case also.
