    Question Leather or Polyurethane Smart Cover?

    I can't decide which one I should get. It is my understanding that the leather feels nicer (I didn't really like the slick feeling of the Poly..) but I have also heard that it can rub off onto the iPad. Also, color wise I find the red Leather cover the most attractive.

    What is your experience with the covers?

    I have the polyurethane one. It has a nice soft, slightly furry feel.

    There's no one right answer, some people love leather, some don't, and some will be cost driven. Get the one that feels right, or if things aren't clear choose one and don't look back.

    It's the opposite for me. I've always liked the feel of polyurethane over leather. I have the smart cover of one and like it except the hinge is annoying when folded around the back. It makes it slide back and forth a little. At first I was going to return it over that but I've gotten used to it and will stick with it and not buy any other. Of course the hinge issue will be the same for either.

    I wish the price wasn't so high so it would not be such an investment. My main concern with the leather is it rubbing off onto the iPad. I read a thread (it might have been here?) about a guy who now has a partially dark blue iPad because of his leather case.

    I like the colors that come in leather, (Navy, White) but seriously...i can't justify $69 + tax for a screen cover. Give me a break--not to mention the reports of the leather dye bleeding. Got the grey poly.

    Me too. Aesthetics are not a major concern of mine but I do like the cover and the back of the iPad having similar hues. Understated yet elegant or whatever.

    Pretty evil black only comes in leather. I was pissed and got gray poly out of protest.

    I'd rather have the Navy leather but wasn't going to pay that price for it. So ended up with the Green Poly. So far I'm liking the simplicity of the Smart Cover.

    Poly for me. As much as I like the Smart Cover, and I like it a lot, even $39 was too much for such a simple cover. Much less $69. Plus there are reports that the dye on the leather ones can bleed off and get on other things (Apple even has a disclaimer about it on their product info page).

    I wish they had better colors in they poly like black, navy etc., but the blue, green and grey poly ones are ok IMO.
