As much as I would hate to admit, it has been difficult to find a “right” case for the iPad. Sure you can go to any store and get a generic one right away, and believe me there are plenty to choose from, but for myself and maybe some of us, we want something special, something different, something that define us from the rest of the flock and to find that “perfect”case, have not been an easy journey.
We want the one that protects really well, looks good and not adding much thickness and or weight to it, picky aren’t we.
So here’s the case that I came across after searching and digging around and considered as the “Best and perfect” all around case. the one that caught my eyes, and I hope this helps your decision-making easier, I present :
The SGP Vintage Edition for iPad (hand-made).
The SGP Vintage cost a bit more than a regular iPad case, at USD72.99 you get yourself a hand-made genuine soft leather case that is unique and will not only dress your iPad up like the hottest cowgirl in town, but gives it protection it needed without compromising thinness. The SGP can be ordered directly from SGP website and delivery time took 7-10 Days to Sydney and cost US$20.00 considering they ship direct from factory in Korea and maybe they handmade them on order.. who knows.
First impression: I was stunned at the quality of the leather and design.
The velvety texture of the outer leather and the design inside , they fit really nice and snug, also all the ports are highly accessible but does not jeopardise protection, these case can be considered as a hard case and yet so delicate.

The downside was that the angle on the bottom is not design to stand the iPad high enough for typing angle like other cases, I’m guessing since it will compromise thinness but everything else perfect !
If you notice on the picture above the iPad sits recessed inwards from the case so in case you drop the iPad on the side there are still some sort of protection.
It has only been a day that I have used this , however the quality of the leather nor colour do not change even on my sweaty palm, I would not test this with the shower. This case is designed to have that “wore-down” look after time. SGP even states that on their site, after all ,that’s what makes the case ” Vintage”.
I hope you enjoy this quick review as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it, price is a bit steep for me. But this case is really good, what I’ve been looking for and I am satisfied.
