This is a truly amazing case. I tried out quite a few others from different companies, but this is the one I have stuck with! Pros: * Looks classy * iPad is held in securely by a plastic mounting system * Cover folds easily behind the iPad if you want to hold it book/portrait fashion * Really nice angles if you use it in landscape mode sitting on a desk. The cover is also sturdy enough that you can use it sitting on your lap or furniture. * The interior is very soft and won't hurt the front of the iPad (though I would still suggest a plastic screen protector just so you don't actually scrape or scratch the screen when you have the folio open. Cons * It really really needs an elastic band like some of the other M-Edge products to keep the folio closed when not in use, perhaps a half inch wide black elastic band. I am going to try and make one myself to keep mine closed. [I think this would make this a 5 star product!] * I don't use the iPad2 cameras, but for those who do, this case covers the rear-facing camera. On the upside, it is very easy to get the iPad in and out of its plastic holder should you want to use that camera.
Thank you for your review! If you put the device into the jacket upside-down, then you can fold the back cover out of the way to allow access to the rear camera. I hope this helps! -Aubrey, Team M-Edge
I love this case but can't seem to get it to snap back out of the plastic mount

My husband & I recently got this case for his mother's birthday in November. I like the look and sturdiness of the item. Not knowing that I was going to receive an iPad2 for Christmas, I can't seem to find another case that I like other than the Hampton Jacket. The problem is, I WANT the Hampton Jacket, BUT there is only ONE color to choose from. Will there be other colors? Otherwise, my mother-in-law and I will have identical "looks" from the color of the iPad to the color of the jacket...and I DON'T WANT that.
This is a good product, particularly if you use the iPad standing up. Very sturdy. However, I typically hold my iPad in my hands with the cover folded back, more like a magazine or paperback book, and this was not as good a choice for that, due to the thicker nature of it. I returned this for a thinner cover.
I've had this case for over two years now and think it is the best case out there. I've tried a few other cases and they don't come close to this one. The Hampton offers a simple yet fictional design. It provides substantial protection for my iPad and it is vey comfortable to hold and use. I can't say enough good things about this case. However, I've bought a new iPad Air and disappointed that they don't make one for the Air.
I did a lot of research on iPad covers that would fit how I planned to use the device. This one provides the front and back protection I wanted as well as the feature to tilt the device for various uses. I like that it looks more like a book, both from a security perspective as well as not being one of the iPad crowd. I'm not sure if it's supposed to have a magnet to activate the sleep function when closed but since I turn my iPad off after each use this is not relevant to me. If you're looking for an alternative to the mainstream covers that scream "I'm an iPad!", that gives protection to the front and back, and provides versatile viewing/working positions, it's hard to beat this one for the money.
I bought this cover for my wife to replace the apple cover which she did not like. She loves this cover, from the smooth leather finish which is easy on the hands to the 3 way ability to stand the iPad with the cover. She says she also feels much more secure with her iPad in the sturdy cover. This is not our first purchase from M edge as we also bought two kindle covers and lights. We love the quality and responsive service (3 day delivery to Canada for instance and great email and phone response). We would highly recommend products from this company
Great case! It has multiple sturdy incline positions and performs better than any other I've tried and it's attractive.
I looked all over to find a cover for my I-pad 2 that had some personality and looked chic - the metallic pewter color is fabulous and I've already gotten compliments on it. Good choice!
I really like the Hampton cover. Bought a different cover from the" large store", but took it back. This is really a nice one, being a woman, I WOULD like to find it in a different color. Looking forward to trying some of your other products...
