Customer Reviews

Review by Hal
I spent a lot of time researching cases online before choosing this one. Most reviews pointed to the quality of materials and the design as being excellent. I could not agree more.

It was 100% crucial that the case be Made in USA, which it is. I refuse to buy imported products unless there is NO domestically made option. That said, there are a number of domestic options for iPad cases. I feel after doing my research and using this product for 3 months, Pad and Quill was the right choice.

My iPad has survived several drops onto hard floors and frankly I don't even open it anymore to see if it is ok, I am sure it is. The case itself is weathering nicely, like a well loved book. The iPad fits in snugly, but is easy enough to remove.

The top power button is very hard to get to, but frankly I have only needed to use it 2-3 times in the months I have owned the device, because the case has the built in magnet activation, which turns it on and off when you close the cover.

Never having had that feature before on a case, I can honestly say I could never, ever go back.

Fantastic product. Don't hesitate, just order it. (Posted on 6/27/14)
Review by Dave
The quality is first class. I was really please when I received it and examined the construction. I had a concern that it might be too heavy since it has a wood interior, but that is not the case. Other people have picked it up and examined the case and iPad and they thought it was really well done - "It looks like a book!" was the main comment. It is about the same weight.

My only concern is the strap - how long will that last. It looks like it is high quality, but I have a reservation that it might snap one day. Other than that concern (which is only that for now) I can recommend this item. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Review by Stephen
I was at first looking to by the apple branded leather iPad case and then I saw some reviews on the pad and quill case. And let me saw that this case does not disappoint. This case is marginally more expensive than the apple case but is 10 times the quality and handmade in America! I don't know how pad and quill do it when other companies,(including apple) make their cases in china and are not handmade. This case is an absolute steal for less than 100 dollars to have a hand made product that looks as nice as it feels. The build quality is top notch and you can tell the company stands behind their product with a 25 year leather warranty. Do yourself a favor and use some of that holiday cash and get yourself this case. It is beautiful and very functional (Posted on 12/25/13)
