    Best leather-folios or rather best-leather folios

    I hate the PU or whatever faux leather stuff. I am fine with my silicone skin, but if I buy a leather folio I want leather and good leather, not cheap leather with a bad smell like I often read in reviews.

    So which folios/cases have the best leather? I am looking for iPad 2 but if there are especially good iPad 1 cases those companies might offer good iPad 2 stuff now or later.
    Cheers! Martin aka Kukulcan

    Not sure what you mean exactly by 'best leather', but for iPad 1 it would have been Oberon Design for me. However, they cut some corners on their iPad 2 cases by not having the rear camera port (instant design fail for me) and built-in magnetic activation, which is a letdown given their usual high level of quality. They also offer iPad sleeves with the same hot-stamped leather design.

    Well, stay away from the Yoobao (Pyrus on Amazon -- it comes in a Yoobao box).

    The smell just about knocked me off of my feet.

    Will have to figure out a way to destink this.

    Saddleback sure looks tempting, the site is defunct but I found lots of pics - thanks!

    Oberon and bookbook are a little to fancy for me.

    I have the iPad1...

    I really loved the Saddleback and after weeks of searching it came down to that one, the Oberon and the Bookbook. I love the look of all all 3 and really had a hard time deciding.

    I ended up going with the Oberon because I wanted a fold type that didn't add a lot of bulk, plus I loved the Tree Of Life design. I am super happy with it.

    I was afraid the Saddleback would be a bit bulky for me because I am really small, but I love the rugged look of it and their marketing is great, I almost bought it on that alone because those guys are funny.

    I love the Bookbook because it conceals what you are carrying and zips it up nice and neat. If I traveled a lot I would get it, but for everyday use around the house I didn't want to mess with the zipper.

    I saw a brown leather Targus at Best Best that I also liked a lot and it was only $19.99, for the price you can't beat that one for a knock around case.

    Good luck on deciding, it is hard!

    There are some expensive leather iPad 2 cases on JW Hulme's website if money is no object. One of them is a folio style and another has a leather smart cover built in.
