Leather iPad 2 Case By Saddleback! Post Rating

One company that needs no introduction on this site is Saddleback. They are the makers of one of the best selling and highest quality leather iPad cases on the market. It is currently the second highest rated iPad accessory on our website! Due to popular demand (and some anonymous threats) Dave (Saddleback’s designer and owner) recently returned from his castle on the Loch Ness in Scotland to design a new iPad 2 leather case. True to form, he managed to create yet another beautiful, sturdy, and simply amazing leather iPad 2 case that will no doubt outlast the tablet itself. Our review unit is coming very soon We just got through giving our review unit a thorough test so read on for our thoughts on Saddleback’s new iPad 2 premium leather case.

If you are not familiar with Saddleback, then listen up and prepare to be overcome by an overwhelming urge to become their best friends. Saddleback is a different sort of company, they are built on the belief that true quality and workmanship should come first. All of their products are made from the highest grade materials, the best possible leathers, and hand crafted to meticulous standards. They trust their products so much they even back every one of them with a famous 100 year warranty. Saddleback has everything from leather luggage, leather messenger bags, wallets, backpacks, and yes: leather iPad 2 cases.

Top Quality Leather iPad 2 Case

Their new iPad 2 leather case is made from super thick boot grade leather, lined with pigskin (one of the toughest leathers on the planet), colored in the old world fashion that takes time and ensures full penetration, and stitched together with heavy gauge marine grade thread.

To call this case rugged and awesome is an understatement.

Similar in overall design to their original iPad case, this one has a front cover that is secured closed with two leather straps. These straps fold over and slide through two rings on the other side. It’s easy to open, and stays safely closed. The straps can also be folded back and used to turn this case into a stand. There are all the appropriate openings and cutouts for the new cameras and the enhanced speaker as well.

New Features and Design Changes

This new iPad 2 case has some significant design differences from the original. Overall it looks and feels more mature and stylish. One instantly notices that this case is smaller than the original. There is still a protective lip around the iPad, but it feels lighter, more streamlined, and less bulky feeling. Additionally the double stitching is gone, instead we see that all the seems and weak spots are reinforced with extra single stitches. The home button is still covered with a thin piece of leather, but this time the spot is highlighted with the stitches outlining it for easier location. The last major design change is the molded bed for the iPad to sit in. Instead of being a straight envelope with cutouts like the original case, the new one has a molded leather bed for the iPad 2, letting it sit nicely and securely. Since the port cutouts are now on the back instead of the front, it has an overall more streamlined and professional look to the case. Don’t get us wrong though… even though the case has matured, it is still every bit as John Wayne rugged as before!

Protection You Can Count On

As far as protection goes, this is case will let your iPad 2 take a licking and keep on ticking. It is designed with a thick leather lip around all the edges to absorb any impact and keep your iPad 2 safe. Additionally the super thick full grain boot leather on the front and back will protect it from any direct impacts (we have heard unconfirmed rumors that it can also stop bullets… but please don’t test this out…).

The leather is designed to age with use, and as you use the case, it will develop it’s own personality and markings to make it uniquely yours. Each scratch, dent, and ding on the case will add to its character and be a story you can tell your friends. Just imagine telling your pals about how you got that scratch while trekking to Base Camp 1 in Nepal, how you got that ding after a dangerous encounter in Borneo, and how you got that bullet hole from a seedy cantina in Juarez.

“I don’t always use a leather case for my iPad 2…

Leather iPad 2 Case By Saddleback!

But when I do, it’s a Saddleback.” The original Saddleback iPad case was and still is in our top 5 most interesting iPad cases, it’s the second highest rated iPad case on our site. The new model is even better, more mature, and shows significant improvements an an already outstanding design. It takes the prize as the most interesting leather iPad 2 case. If you want a truly awesome leather case for your iPad 2, one that will take you around the world and back, one that will attract envious glares from everybody on the planet, then look no further! The rugged awesomeness of this case will increase your mysteriousness and interesting…ness factor to be on par with the Dos Equis “most interesting man in the world” guy… and hey, if it’s good enough for him, then it’s good enough for us!
