The new iPad air is so sleek and light, the last thing you want to do is cover it up with a bulky case. For a slimmer option, check out the new StyleFolio from Speck.
This case is lightweight and adds minimal bulk to the thickness of the iPad. But at the same time you are still getting pretty decent protection. The shell holds the iPad snug and has adequate openings for all the buttons and ports. A nice addition that helps this case to stand out is the anti-scratch lining, so that the back of your iPad stays in pristine condition.
The cover latch also works very well. It’s simple and it works better than most. Not only does it hold the cover when closed, but also when it is open. This is a great little addition that is often lacking on many similar cases.
As with other “folio” style cases, the StyleFolio works as a stand for viewing as well as typing. There are 4 notches for viewing angles, however the anti-scratch lining has just enough grip to allow you to set the angle exactly where you want.
Speck’s StyleFolio for iPad Air is a great iPad Air case that comes in 14 different colors/patterns. And at $39.95 with free shipping, it’s also priced well for a protective and stylish case.
The Good: Anti-scratch lining. Pretty lightweight and thin. Lots of colors and patterns to choose from.
The Bad: Pretty thin, but still adds some bulk and weight.
