Orbyx Leather Case

RH Editor's Choice

With black leather on the outside and pea-green suede within, this folio should appeal as to the executive with fashionista leanings. Colour scheme aside, the Orbyx is a nice case. The iPad slides in from the outside - there's a snug fit and a magnetically clasped flap to keep it there - so it's easy to remove. There's plenty of space between the screen and the leather frame around it. The cover folds back to tuck into a fold-out catch for upright or laid back screen angles.

Proporta Leather Style Case

Plastic it may be, but this faux-hide case doesn't feel as bulky as many of the other folios I tested, a lot of which seem to bulge out when you put the iPad in. The Proporta's proportions are kept in check by a flat spine - there's a press-stud held catch to keep it closed. There's a small document pocket inside. Comes in red or black.
