Review: Tufted Black Leather iPad Case from EZ Buys Direct


I seem to be somewhat of an anomaly as I’m not a fan of iPhone cases or bumpers.  I feel like they take away from the sleekness of the iPhone itself.  With my iPad, I’ve always used the standard Apple cover as something to keep it protected while not in use.  And I was fine with that until I saw the tufted black leather iPad case from EZ Buys Direct.  It arrived in an unassuming package and, at first, I was worried this would be some cheap-o case.

Boy, was I wrong.

After only one day of use, I’ve found a new go-to case for my iPad.  The case features a leather enclosure which looks and feels great.  When you open it up, you see a black shell back, which is where you place your iPad.  It snaps in to place quickly and easily.

From there, it can be folded easily into a stand.  This is probably my favorite part of the case.  The official Apple case is OK for most things, but when it comes to using it as a stand for viewing pictures, videos, or whatever, I’m always scared it’s going to topple over.  But not with this one.  The shell slides forward a few inches, but is held securely in place at the top and bottom.  No worries about damage or breakage here.


To fully protect the iPad, just close the case and fold over the magnetic flap.  Your iPad is now protected and locked.  And when your iPad is in the case, all buttons and ports are easily accessible.  The lock button is a little difficult to reach, but it’s not too bad, and certainly nothing that takes away from this great case.

If I had one complaint, it’s that the iPad is not super comfortable to hold while in the case.  You fold the back over and tuck in the flap between both sides.  It works fine, but feels a little bulky to me.  This doesn’t both me, however, as nine times out of ten, I take my iPad out of the case when using it.


I honestly was not expecting much when this case arrived, but I was pleasantly surprised. The leather feels great and it’s easy to remove the iPad from the case at any time.  This case looks and feels great, does an excellent job of protecting the iPad, and does not add a significant amount of bulk at all.  Comparing it to Apple’s official case, the bulk difference is negligible.

If you’re looking for a case for your iPad, I strongly recommend you give this one a try.  It’s currently selling for only $23.50 from EZ Buys Direct.
