    Default [GIVEAWAY] Sena Folio Classic Leather iPad Case


    I always enjoy when a box comes in to the ModMyi.com review mailbox from Sena Cases. Founded by two brothers in 1999, Sena's niche is high-end, genuine Napa leather cases for your gadget. I have a few of them in the review bin to get to, and first we'll be looking at the Folio Classic, for iPad 2 (also for the new iPad 3rd generation).

    The Folio Classic is a business/college case. Like almost all Sena cases, you can choose from a variety of 6 colors (brown, black, red, tan, crocodile black, and crocodile red). Our review unit is the brown color. It's a basic flip-style case - completely covers the iPad by way of a slide-in area for the iPad with a fold-over top. The cover does include magnets to make use of the iPad 2 and 3rd gen iPad's smart lock features (when the cover closes, the iPad screen automatically shuts off). I found that I did have to set the auto-lock on the iPad though, as since the leather is not flush against the screen, it would occasionally not lock the screen while in my bag.



    Inside the case (which opens like a book), the top area has an efficient set of slots and pockets to eliminate the need for a wallet/extra bag. Up to 4 credit cards (more if you're one of those people who like to smash too many cards in a slot) and your ID fit in the top area, while there is also a bottom pocket which can hold papers, cash, a checkbook, or anything else thin you'd like to carry. I haven't carried a wallet in a couple years after discovering an ID card iPhone case a while back, and the idea of being able to carry more cards is attractive. If you're the kind of person who brings your iPad everywhere, this case will be great for you. I did notice having to run out to the car a couple times to grab my card, but only because I'm used to leaving my iPad in the car and only having my phone on me in many meetings. College kids would probably love this though, as the iPad is ever present.

    The iPad fits snug in the case and doesn't slide around - there's a snapped piece of leather which holds it in nice and tight. The back of the leather case has a strap of leather which acts as a stand for the case. The angle is nice for both viewing and typing (perhaps a little steep for typing, but worked well for me taking notes in a meeting) and has a small piece of leather holding it at the correct angle. When not in use, the leather strap snaps in to the main case to hold it snug.



    Handcrafted, the stitching and cutouts on the case are perfectly done. Your camera has an unobstructed view, the dock connector is open and available, power, volume, and all other buttons are easily accessible. I did notice a few issues with the volume buttons - the leather is close there, so you've got to be pretty precise when changing the volume. It works fine, but was not quite as easy as my blind reaching I typically do when changing the volume while watching a show.



    Both the Folio Classic for iPad 2 and the version for iPad 3rd Gen run $99.99 direct from Sena. Which is actually a decent price for a genuine Napa leather case - Vaja cases are easily double that cost. But of course, it wouldn't be a ModMyi.com review without a giveaway unit - so use the widget below to grab some points, and we'll choose a winner Tuesday morning! You get your choice of color in the iPad 2 version of the case thanks to Sena.

    My first thought too... Loosing your ipad.. Sux but loosing your credit card and id at the same time is just too risky

    Maybe this cover also got a neat place to write down your pincodes? Jk

    Nakedfairie wants one. He's going to keep an iPad on one side and a bunch of essays about how much the iPad sucks on the other side.
