This cover blends a lot of the key features of other cases -- like a magnetic closure, automatic wake-sleep, and a foldable cover for multiple stand options -- with some new perks. For starters, the back of the case is thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), which means it absorbs shock. If you drop your iPad Air in this case, it will offer a level of protection. Plus, the TPU portion offers a slot for your Apple Pencil, so you'll get a safeguard for it, too.
This HOLIMET case comes in some traditional-looking leather finishes (namely, black and brown), but the leather is vegan so you don't have to worry about any animal cruelty ramifications. If you want a more modern look, the case also comes in pink or blue vegan leather, along with a caramel brown, dark black, dark slate blue, and green finish with a modern arced design.
It's also worth noting that this shockproof cover could be helpful for people on the go because it includes a pocket on the front. There, you can stash money, cards, documents, sticks of gum -- you get the idea. What's more, the case also boasts 4.7 stars from more than 430 Amazon reviews. And it does all of this for an affordable price of $32.40.
The one thing we don't care for is the highly noticeable, somewhat-gaudy HOLIMET logo on the front cover. It's small but its metal design makes it stand out.
