    I need a quality leather or nylon case that will stand the Ipad in horizontal and vertical orientation for airplane use. Dont need any pockets, pouches or anything real fancy but do want good protection. Post any ideas? Thanks.

    Have one from these since the iPad was released, would not trade for another one, and i have tested several, but this still, is the one.

    Or just Search on ex Ipad leather case on ebay, the choices are many.

    I will say that I just purchased mine and sought the same. I decided on the apple thin case they offer at best buy. It is thin, keeping your iPad size minimal, and I put it in a neoprene pouch for added cushion. Works well for me in travel. Lays at a good angle for airplane rides IMO. My 2 cents

    I too bought the apple case day I bought my iPad. It's too slippery to take to work without a case.

    I do want something easier to get in/out of because I like having it bare for when at home on my days off. But the apple case is quite nice..not worth 40 but better than the other cases at best buy.

    FWIW - I find that I seldom use my iPad in the portrait or vertical position. Always in landscape position.

    I am using a Crowncase vertical messenger bag to log the Ipad around and a Luxa2 H4 for a stand at the office. You can orient it at almost any angle.

    I use the apple case for all around protection.

    Amazon sells Crowncae, Best Buy Luxa2, and the Apple case.

    I could not find any one case that does it all.

    Good luck w the search,

    Tom.

    Search for the Chinao iPad Folio - does exactly what you ask although it is very slim so not the last word in drop protection. I have one and it is superb, I love it. I also got a cheaper version off the auction site for a 3rd of the price and it is almost as good but the fit isn't as flush around the screen but still does all you ask and for a good price.

    I just received my iPad case from Modulr. It has the built to withstand some knocks and is a case for carrying, protects, and a base to attach various stands. The iPad aluminum body is very soft and will get dented easily if knocked.

    ditto on ModulR

    We've been using modulR since the beginning of August, and the stuff frickin' rocks. We have dropped our ipads on the concrete floor of the fire house exactly 5,456,987 times in the last 2 months, and aside from a couple extra shifts of bathroom maint, nobody else is worse for wear, least of all our precious ipads. Touch, durable, spartan design. Not at all girly, very utilitarian... we like'em.:ipad-back:

    I like the otterbox. It is a little heavy but works well for me and I am not worried about my kids destroying it. (and it does stand in portrait and landscape)

    The modulR is just great. Looks os class too. Does it cause alot of thickness as well?

    I think I will wait for the wall mount to be out. There might be a bundle offer as well.

    modulR ipad wall mount

    The modulR Slim Mount only adds 3/4" to the case system, and the back of case itself is only 3/32" thick. All told, it's about the cleanest wall mount on the market right now, explains why so many home automation companies that are using the ipad as their interface surface are using modulR for their mounting system.

    just my two cents...

    With leather, my first choice would be Oberon Design - stands in both orientations, protects the device and in terms of craftsmanship and looks, nothing else I've seen (and I've seen plenty) even comes close...

    Tried the modulR and found it way too messy - too fussy and too much messing about with it to get the ipad into the position I want.

    I find the leather Yoobao Mk2 case to be the best so far. Its quality leather, neat, tidy, easy to use and a "doddle" to achieve that all important position "I want" :D

    Cases

    I've tried out a bunch of cases for work and here is my take:

    Belkin - This is a basic rubber case. Fits well and comfortable. I would say this is my favorite by $49 for this is stupid.

    Quirky Cloak- Piece of crap. We returned after 5 minutes of use (it broke after 2)

    OtterBox Defender - Rugged case but very bulky. I can barely hold it with the cover on.

    Modulr - Good case, great stand and a great idea with lots of potential for more parts to add to the case. Not a fan of wall mounts, but the case and stand is the sturdiest stand out there (only one I feel comfortable with my toddler handling)

    Brenthaven 5 in 1 - Very good idea, but the cover is too wide and the stands are not stable enough. With improvement it could be awesome.

    Wallee - Again not a fan of wall mounts but neat idea with the x attachment. Note as low profile or stable as modulr but a smaller footprint for the wall mount.

    Griffin - They have a lot of cases out there. I like the cinema seat and the standle (except for the dumb name).

    I'll post more as we are buying everyone we can get since we are using the ipads for our fleet.

    Leather Case for My ipad is deluxe

    Hi, I bought a leather case for my ipad from Fortte's website. It is truly quite elegant. I had them make it for me in red which is my favorite color. I would have liked to post some pictures but it is not allowed.

    Regards :)

    I bought a Targus after reading reviews on a lot of them. Price was good $50, good grain leather and feel (not slippery), enough padding to protect if dropped, can be done horizonally in 2 positions. I have been very satisfied and would buy again.
