The Lady’s all-time favorite iPad case ever ever was the Porter from Skech, and the only reason she switched is because she wore the thing out. Unfortunately, she won’t be able to take advantage of the new Porter for iPad Air just yet, as she still has to suffer the indignity of using the old, fat, heavy and hot iPad 3.
I, however, with my svelte and perfect iPad Air, might call one in for review just to make her jealous.
The Porter keeps everything that made it good, and shrinks it for the new iPad. It’s a folio-style case, and was one of the first to turn into a stand by letting half of the rear part of the cover hinge away from the iPad. Previous to this, all case with stands had an extra flap that added weight and thickness.
It also comes with a hand strap so you can grab the iPad without gripping it, sleep/wake magnets. Wraparound protective corners and a clip-closed front flap.
If it’s anywhere near as good as its predecessor then it might just be the perfect iPad case. And it should be even lighter than v1.0.
How much? $50, and available in pink or black. And you can still buy the old version for your fat iPad 3 over on Amazon, for around half that price, or pick one up for the new fat iPad mini with Retina display.
