This post has been updated to include the new iPad Pro 9.7 cases! It's official, the iPad Pro is huge (see what we did there?). All puns aside, we have been loving our new iPad Pro here at PQ HQ and Mr. PQ himself has hailed it as the "anti-laptop." After using the Pro for the past week in place of a desktop computer or MacBook, everything else just looks and feels boring. Since the Pro is so large, it definitely requires some kind of case and protection. So without further ado, let's meet the Pad & Quill lineup of our best iPad Pro cases.
Meet The Contega Linen iPad Pro Case and Stand
Our signature case for the iPad Pro and iPad Pro 9.7, the Contega Linen, is what we are all about here. We've combined old world bookbindery techniques with a brand new design for the Pro, the result is a truly outstanding iPad Pro book case.
We've wrapped this iPad Pro case in archival quality Buckram linen cloth, the same cloth used to cover hardback books in the US Library of Congress. Buckram cloth is exceptionally durable, water resistant, feels fantastic in the hand, and can stand up to decades of heavy use. On the inside, we've lined he Contega with a special rubberized surface that is super grippy. This allows you to prop up your iPad Pro and use it in multiple angles whether you are watching Masterpiece or composing your next novel.
Audiophiles will rejoice, we have redesigned our Baltic Birch wooden frame especially for the iPad Pro's new four-speaker design. With four specially shaped sound channels etched into the frame itself, the case acts as a speaker box for the iPad Pro, directing the stereo sound towards you and warming it immensely.
Our signature bookmark accent plays the perfect Watson to the Contega's Sure-loc bumper system (there we go with the puns... again). The bumpers hold the iPad firmly in place, and the bookmark can be pulled to remove the Pro with a single tug. All of this wraps up into a beautiful package with the Moleskine style thick elastic band.
Hearkening back to the days of leather bound journals and legendary wordsmiths, the Contega is the iPad Pro case that would impress the pants off Hemmingway, fell Fitzgerald on the spot, and throw Thoreau for a loop.
Meet The Contega Thin iPad Pro Case
In the Contega Thin case for iPad Pro and iPad Pro 9.7 we have a case for hardback book fans who are minimalists at heart. We've taken everything awesome about the Contega Linen case and slimmed it down substantially. Our customers love the super slim profile of this case that offers durable protection and lots of functionality without any added bulk.
Covered in our legendarily durable Buckram linen cloth, the same cloth used in the Library of Congress book binderies, this case will last for a very long time. The iPad sits just inside the rim so as to provide robust bump and drop protection to the edges. The cover folds completely open paperback book style for quick and convenient access. On the inside we have lined it with our high friction coefficient rubberized material that lets you turn this wrap around case into a multi-position iPad Pro stand in seconds. We've included two grooves in the case for optimal positioning when using on your lap or typing at a desk.
Two strips of our specially formulated 3M clean release adhesive lock the iPad Pro in place and don't let go, until you want it to. This smart case is completely compatible with the Apple Keyboard Accessory turning this into a fantastic iPad Pro keyboard case. It secures closed with a moleskine style thick elastic band. If space is an issue, and you want a thin book style iPad Pro case that will take a lickin' and keep on ticken' then you can't go wrong with the Contega Thin.
Meet The Oxford Slim Leather iPad Pro Folio
Why bulk up if you don't have to? When it comes to leather slim cases for the iPad Pro & iPad Pro 9.7, the Oxford Folio is in a league of its own. Constructed from a single piece of American Full-grain bridle quality saddle leather and available in either our red Chestnut saddle leather or our tan Whiskey saddle leather, your Pro will be wrapped in the unmatched luxury of a slim leather iPad Pro case.
But don't let the thin profile fool you, this case is all business! Celebrating the incredible design and functionality of the iPad Pro without adding any unnecessary bulk, this case is both a thin wrap-around folio case as well as a self-propping iPad Pro stand held together with marine-grade nylon stitching used in parachutes and sails. We have lined the Contega with our a velvet smooth suede leather that holds the iPad in place in multiple viewing angles. The smart front cover also has the perfect document pocket on the inside to hold your papers and even your Apple Pencil.
The iPad is held in place with our specially formulated 3M clean-release adhesive that holds your Pro like a vice and never lets go, until you want it to. Your co-worker's jaws may drop, but your iPad never will.
And since being the best leather iPad Pro case and leather iPad Pro 9.7 case on the market just wasn't enough for us, we have also made sure that the Oxford is completely compatible with the iPad Pro Smart Keyboard accessory from Apple. Leave the keyboard attached and fold the case up just like normal. You've got a leather wrapped workhorse in the palm of your hand.
