    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.

    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.

    Click on the links in the body of the 3rd subject "ipad2 cases on thier way" on that page and it will work. Look niiiiiiiiiice but pricey.

    Edit: nvmnd....it worked twice but now I keep getting the bad gateway error no matter which link I choose.

    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.
