Eco-Vue for iPad case

Eco-Vue for iPad case $44.99

Marware’s Eco-Vue for iPad is an attractive, sturdy and professional-looking case for the iPad. The brown folio-style case is made from eco-leather – leather that is tanned using a less-toxic, RoHS compliant (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) process – and the quality is first-rate throughout.

The case has a lightly padded exterior and a suede interior and resembles a leather writing pad folder. It opens like a book, stands up to display the iPad horizontally or vertically, and has a kick-stand-like support for holding the iPad at a comfortable angle for typing. A foldover tab and thin elastic strap keep the iPad in place and an ingenious elasticized hand strap lets you hold the case securely at any angle. The ergonomics are well thought out, and the case is simply a pleasure to use.

At just under 13 oz, the Eco-Vue case adds some heft to the iPad, but its quality more than compensates for a little extra weight. This is a terrific iPad case. Very highly recommended.
