Who knew great-looking genuine leather could be so tough? Introducing the Kavaj Berlin iPad folio, a tablet accessory which scores high in a number of areas. In fact, the Kavaj Berlin includes enough impressive functionality that the high-quality material almost becomes an afterthought – almost.

Editor's Rating 

We’ve seen a lot of nice genuine-leather tablet cases – even some made exclusively for Apple iPads – come down the pike recently, but few so admirably include the functionality necessary in the folio case format. Beyond the leather of the Kavaj Berlin iPad folio case, which will win many lovers of the stuff over immediately with its easily apparent quality and soft feel, are those features a top-notch folio case brings. Opening up the Kavaj Berlin immediately introduces a strong embedded magnet, a must-have to activate the sleep/wake button automatically, which also serves to keep everything closed very tightly. The interior is made of soft flannel to protect the screen and keep things light (more on this momentarily); this interior cover includes the familiar notch to set the iPad at two angles, but Kavaj Berlin’s designers have been thoughtful enough to make one of these angles ideal for use with a keyboard. In terms of carrying, the Kavaj Berlin folio is about as trim as it gets; augmented by that soft leather, it’s a joy to tote. A bit of extra weight is added by sheer dint of the material itself – leather does add some ounces, regardless of thinness – but if one’s only interested in weight, lots of plastic tablet cases are available…

Pros

  • Outstanding high-quality genuine leather
  • Good strong magnets for closure, sleep/wake
  • Very trim fit

            Overall: GREAT

            The Kavaj Berlin folio is one of the finest-quality items to enter Tablet2Cases’ doors in recent days could well be making “Top 10” lists by year’s end. Other tablet case manufacturers wanting to combine style and function would do well to use this Kavaj case as a blueprint.
