  • There is some simple instructions and spare elastic straps included with the case.

  • The full design covers the front and back of the leather case and looks great.

  • There are heavy paper/cardboard pieces inserted inside the front and back pockets to give the iPad 2 more protection.

  • Nice looking but...

    Cost = Ouch
    Can't justify the cost benefit for that.

    I picked up a Toblino 2 leather case for mine that also utilizes the open/close on/off function - full front and back protection for $35.....

    I does look nice but it doesn't seems to be a very sturdy "case".

    Hmmm. I still prefer my rooCASE. It zippers all the way around to completely protect the iPad and it also has a removable 2nd case that velcros into the zippered case so that the iPad is still protected when out of the big case. I secured a magnet inside the flap of the case and now it has the open/on function of many other cases. It is a little bulkier than other cases, but I'd rather have the protection! If Oberon had a case similar to my rooCASE, I'd be sold - the one thing I miss with my rooCASE is that it could be a little more stylish. It is fun and bright pink, but a nice tooled leather design would be nice too!
