    We decided to ask you guys, the possible customers, do you like these cases?

    As you can see, they all have zippers (ignore the silicone case, please), but we're working on getting one which is similar to the Apple iPad Case in functionality. These are aimed at the heavy duty crowd.

    So what do you guys think?

    Zippers are ennemies to all metal devices. They scratch the **** out of them.

    No zippers, no snaps. A simple messenger/sling bag style with a couple of pockets for items like the charger, keys, phone, etc. It should be comfortable for carrying around all day and have easy access.

    that why i use a simple slip case with a cover comes over the unit and use no other items to keep it safe and secured for travel in the larger bag unit ..

    that way i order a kensington sling bag ..it hold the unit in case along with a power cord and screen cleaning kit and earphones .... then add this items for use in our daily work life like a cell phone travel power cord along with reading glass stowage case and money in a ziplock plastic bag along with some travel over the counter meds in a ziplock plastic bag and that about it in the case for use in my daily travel for work and play ..it not large that you can not keep control of the bag when in a crowed places like the subway or some other from of public transport system ..also to be able to fit under the jacket in bad weather and large enough to hold the items you would need in your basic daily travels from work to home and play ..

    I think it's quite a bummer also for me, I usually prefer leather as a form of protection.

    PDair Leather Case for Apple iPad - Book Type/Magnet Closure (Black) by PDair - PDair.com

    waiting for this to arrive, this should go well with my suit and suitcase work look.

    it will give me some good looking fun with the ipad when im on the train to and from work.:D

    I've been on the quest for a simple iPad carrying case quite long. There's plenty of cases without a hand or shoulder strap which I found silly. I just don't want to press device's screen when carrying it no matter the fact many of such cases have hard flip tops/covers. Kroo has made a perfect carrying case (review can be found here: Neophrene iPad carrying sleeve by Kroo | iPad cases and accessories) for funny price of $15 only. I bought it and never regret for decision. Even my iPad's viewstand fits inside!

    not a big fan, will never buy with zippers. I'm similar to above and enjoy leather cases! they feel and look the best. What leather cases have you seen?
