Review: Speck FitFolio iPad case

I was first introduced to Speck at BritMums Live back in June; we each had an iPhone case in our goody bag. Sadly, I don’t have an iPhone but sent them a rather cheeky email asking whether they’d like any of their iPad cases reviewed, as knew I was about to get one for my birthday. 
The kind people at Speck obliged and sent me this gorgeous FitFolio iPad case!

So what do I like about it? 
Firstly, it looks great! The front, outer cover is made of (vegan) leather and feels fabulous. The inside is microsuede so it’s a safe, non-scratch surface next to your iPad screen, and then the back of the case is hardy plastic. It’s also slim enough to fit nicely into your handbag.

I love the colour – the shade is Jalapeño, which is a bright turquoise colour. It fits in perfectly with most of my things!

It has four viewing angles, which come in handy when you’re writing something for a long period of time and want to change position.

The iPad automatically goes to sleep when you close the cover and comes alive when you take it off. Very useful for preserving energy.

What did I not love about it? 
It’s not very durable. I’d been using the FitFolio for only a week when a small wear mark appeared in the top right corner of the leather. However, I have now had the case for over a month and Nick and I use it every day; this is still the only mark that has appeared.

The first viewing angle doesn’t work particularly well as I don’t think it’s strong enough to hold the iPad up. Also, rigorous typing can knock the iPad out of all the viewing angle support slots… Obviously I get too excited when I write! 

Overall, I think the FitFolio is aesthetically pleasing – but may not be suitable for constant, professional usage. The FitFolio iPad case costs $39.95 (about £25) and is available to buy on the Speck website
