Marware Eco-Flip case for iPad - accessory review

The Marware Eco-Flip case for iPad is a portfolio case which offers your iPad both style and protection. The padded outer layer of the case is an eco-leather material which is water resistance and beautiful to the touch. The inner microfiber layer of the case has a soft suede feel and cradles your iPad snugly inside. It also offers vertical and horizontal stand options as well as a keyboard lift. If you are looking for a vertical flip case then Marware has your covered.

The iPad slips easily and snugly into the inner fold of the Marware Eco-Flip case and the cover stays in place thanks to a smartly placed elastic strap. To open, just slip off the elastic and flip back the cover. If you want to use it as a tablet, reverse the elastic and the cover stays out of your way. If you want to stand it up vertically or horizontally to watch a picture slideshow or movie, leave off the elastic and keep the cover angled open.

Inside you'll find several great features. My favorite is the hand strap. It allows you to easily hold your iPad with one hand and without effort. It is securely kept on your had due to the two elastic straps and is comfortable due to the inner microfiber material.

There's also a small flip-out stand on the inside of the case which places your iPad at a 30 degree angle. This makes using the keyboard on the iPad much easier.

The only slight drawback to this case is that I find the vertical flip of the case to be more cumbersome than the booklike opening of its sister, the Marware Eco-Vue. This is a personal preference though as both cases are equally beautiful and equally well designed.

Overall, the Marware Eco-Flip case is one of the most beautiful and useful cases that I have reviewed to date. If you are looking to get someone a gift or a case for yourself this case will not disappoint you. Marware thought of everything when they designed the Eco-View case. Absolutely impressive.

The Marware Eco-Flip case for iPad is available from the TiPb iPad accessory store.
