Yesterday I came across a TUAW post by Steven Sande highlighting the Vintcase iPad case which he had received for review. I don’t normally begin a post directly from another writer’s work, but this one caught my eye, and I wanted to share it with our readers.
The Vintcase is a folio style case which both houses the iPad and covers its screen with two leather flaps. Steven remarks how soft the leather is and adds that it reminds him of a satchel “Indiana Jones might carry his travel papers in.” It brings to my mind more of a Lord of the Rings look and feel, but why quibble?
Irrespective of film references, this appears to be a noteworthy item for iPad users who appreciate a touch of fine leather, particularly since it is hand crafted in Spain, a locale known for its quality leather products (see also Piel Frama).
The case sells for $99US with an additional $25 for international shipping outside of Europe.
If you own this item, please let all of us know how you like it in the comments section.
