When you haven't gone down the ipad road it's hard to find a flip case for your tablet because your only option seems one of those covers that have to wrap around the tablet edges for attachment. This is fine if you don't care about looks but if you do, these faux-leather wrap-around cases are just downright ugly.
Sometimes the simplest solution is the best and in the end I decided I would just be extra careful with my tablet when using it and choose a simple sleeve for carrying it in my backpack.
I'm very satisfied with this case. The padding protects the tablet from damage and the internal pouch will hold some papers, the screen cleaning cloth and in-ear headphones. Tablet + keyboard fit perfectly. You can also carry around the tablet by itself because the velcro strap will keep it in place. Perhaps the case could have been a millimeter larger all around because the tablet does fit *very* snugly, but that does also mean there is absolutely no room for it to slide around and thus it is better protected.
It's unlikely, but if this case wears out before my tablet does then I'll happily buy it again!
