I am very pleased with this product. It is stylish, yet practical and the 'extra' price is probably justified. The quality of the leather and overall quality of finish is, on the face of it, very good. Only time will tell how it stands up to regular use and the usual handling when transporting my keyboard to and from work. I have not regretted opting for a more expensive option in purchasing this item. There are cheaper alternatives out there, but in my mind, they look cheap and the leather has an inferior feel and look.
