Protect your iPad in luxurious style with the Piel Frama Leather iPad Case

For all of you out there with an iPad, you know that a case for it is a MUST! Especially the amount of money you have spent on it. You need to protect it. If you are in the market for a high end case and want something a little more stylish that the generic Apple case, then this is for you. You and your iPad will definitely be making a statement with this case.

When I was looking for an iPad case I immediately thought of Piel Frama. First off, if you are not familiar with Piel Frama  they are an upscale leather case manufacturer based out of Spain. All of their products are made from the finest leather. I am a big fan of the Piel Frama’s cases for the iPhone. So when they emailed me about their new iPad cases I was pretty excited.

Piel Frama iPad Case

 

 

The case that was shipped to me was the leather magnetic enclosure in black for the iPad. And when you receive the box that the case comes in, the presentation will make you feel as if it is Christmas morning. And this case is hot!  The case wraps around the iPad similar to a book jacket. Both the front and the back have padding installed to soften the blow in case you drop it but their isn't much there so don't drop it! But it does offer alot more protection than Apple’s case.

 

All of the controls all accessible by the case including the all important sync cable. The headphone jack, power button, hold button, volume controls and the speakers are also easily accessible inside the case. They even went as far as to include a hole cutout at the top of the screen for when Apple finally decides to include a front facing camera which in my opinion should have been included but hopefully will be there in the next generation.

 

The leather of the case is made from high quality cowskin and it just feels luxurious. Definitely not chinzy and the case gives that professional business class look to it. Similar to a nice leather portfolio. On the inside back flap there is a small pocket for a single document. I use mine to keep a cloth for cleaning my screen.

 

What I love most is that the front cover acts as a stand for the iPad when you wrap it behind. It gives you the option of adjusting the flap so that you can either have your iPad flat on a table or at a slight angle which is great for typing (which I am doing now) on the train or at a table at Starbucks. And this is also easy on the neck.

 

My only complaint with the case is the magnets. Magnets and electronics scare me so I removed mine. It was very easy to do and didn't damage the outside of the case so you would never know. But then again Piel Frama says that magnets will not damage the iPad which I am sure they won't but I like to be extra cautious.

 

Other than that, I have received numerous compliments about my Piel Frama case. The leather magnetic case for the iPad is not cheap at $145.00 ( I am sure you can find it slightly cheaper by doing a search online ) but they do offer free express shipping worldwide. As far as my iPad is concerned, this case is worth it and if I didn’t receive a free sample from Piel Frama I would definitely pony up the $145 for it. I know I will be definitely purchase their new case for the new iPhone when it and the new iPhone are released in a couple of months.

 

Here are some specs by the manufacturer:

Since I commute alot, I didn’t want my case to get scuffed up in my backpack. So for extra protection I also purchased a protection netbook case from Case Logic to throw my iPad and the Piel Frame case inside. I was able to find one at Marshall’s for $12.99. And this coupled with the Piel Frama case are perfect together for protecting my iPad.

 

If you are in the market for a high end case and want something a little more stylish that the generic Apple case, then this is for you. You and your iPad will definitely be making a statement with this case.

 

Thanks to Piel Frama for providing a sample. My iPad and I thank you.
