I actually did see the comment on Amazon, and the pics that were posted, showing the peeling back.. TBH I just cannot see how that would happen. So I looked again closely, and thankfully it's not same Yoobao case, the case shown is on a iPad 1 and the sides are open, unlike this one which is totally closed around the edge.. I can't see how it can peel back as it's stitched all the way round where the one in the pics that show that peeling is not.. that one's more like the Belkin style folio case with partly open sides.

Sadly many products are discribed as being genuine leather but are not, they probably only contain a tiny percentage of leather somewhere, and I suspect on some cases Yoobao are no different to others.. though to my amateur smell and touch it does feel the genuine artical... time will tell..lol
I've since tried to peel the sample leather piece they include in the box. and it just isn't going to happen. the Leather hide is too thin to peel. The case which weve both seen on Amazon is likely another Yoobao case which like many others probably does have cardboard behind it's facade..lol.. not good though..:-( reminds me of a crap one I bought last week which turned out to be black plastic sprayed cardboard. :-( It was so bad I left my first ever negative to the seller. £10 down the drain... not much money but still wasted. :-(
I do however suspect the front stiff cover is a leather covering with a stiffener inside like other cases, (possibly cardboard or thin plastic) as leather on it's own just would'nt be stiff enough.
Ironically, I actually first saw that on Amazon last week during a Google search, but my eldest son was showing off his own iPad3 to me the weekend which had this same Yoobao case fitted, which he had bought from PC World I think for more money, and I mentioned the same thing to him re. the Amazon comment, but after examining the case closely for myself I decided to take a gamble.... I'll let you know in 6 months, if it hasn't fell apart laughing..lol
Haha yeah possibly. That user probably just got a bad batch or something. What can you do :D
Link to my Targus Z-case thread (photos)
Everything is explained there. But just the gist.. I wanted something that I can use with my smart cover and belkin snap shield. Z-case is designed for the 1 dimensions so it works perfectly.
Targus Z-case was already added to the list. I did buy it from tjmax as well for $12.
Added Yoobao cases for the 3. Been having some trouble trying to find a legit authorized dealer for them. Not eBay. There's only some cases on amazon. I'm not sure if the other 2 cases are even out yet. I could be wrong.
If anyone knows, let me know with the link :) I'll edit it then.
Looks like a solid case :)
Thanks for the pics!

Has anyone found/bought a good quality vehicle mount for their iPad?
I located this headrest mount on the OutfitYours.com website.
I noticed Best Buy offers a few brands also, but the customer reviews on the BB site seem to be a bit on the negative side, mentioning more cons than pros.
Would be nice to find one that possibly adjusts to fit securely around iPad cases, such as a Survivor case.
Maybe contacting Griffin company directly could lead to a good solution.
Will try and email them. And follow-up here, but am very interested to hear from you guys if you have purchased this type of item and your opinion on it.
Besides the headrest mount, what about a device mount for the front of the vehicle so that the driver can take advantage of using a GPS iPad app?
As always, thank you guys, in advance, for your feedback!
Added Note: I continued doing research on IPad mounts after submitting above post and came across products from a company called RAM.
Seems this is more along the direct lines of the type of mount I was searching for- at least as far as the FRONT seat portion of the vehicle is concerned.
