While I love a leather case, there are times when device protection comes first. If you take your iPad Pro with you to work every day like me, this may be the case. In my case, sometimes using my iPad Pro at work means putting it in harm’s way. That has a way of changing your priorities when it comes to cases.
One of the reasons that I’ve been a fan of Urban Armor Gear for a few years now is because their cases offer great protection at a reasonable price. However, it goes further than just taking great care of your devices. UAG’s cases also manage to do it with style and good design, as well.
While I am more of a leather fan when it comes to cases, there are others who prefer the feel of a good book. Pad and Quill is a master of such materials, as I had occasion to discover this past Summer when I reviewed their Journal Notebooks. The linen-covered books were well-made and felt just like a fine hardback in the hand. When I hold the Contega case for the new 11′ iPad Pro, I get that same impression. While the cover has a rougher, more durable texture, it still feels like your iPad Pro is contained within a fine book.
One advantage that you have owning Apple products is access to a robust and thriving ecosystem of accessories. This is especially true for mobile devices, such as the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. As soon as a new device releases, everyone from the major brands, to boutique and custom makers, to no-name sellers on Amazon and eBay are either announcing new cases or already have them available.
