The firm cover, soft interior lining and hard shell back of the STM Bags Skinny provide Sony Tablet S owners with ample protection from everyday accidents at a fair price. The sleek look light weight and two-angle stand are also plusses in this protection-first tablet case.

Editor's Rating 

With its sharp-looking, nice-feeling exterior crafted from “rip-stop nylon,” the STM Bags Skinny folio tablet case for the Sony Tablet S makes its advantages easily determined from the start. Better yet, the shell case-like backer keeps the tablet in place firmly while protecting it from even extreme everyday damage – this one could even survive fairly dramatic drops.

After that all-important protection, the next feature of note is certainly the two-angle stand that folds out and provides a surprisingly solid hold on a flat surface, making the case perfect for Sony Tablet S users who often use video and/or type on the device.

Did I say “the *next* feature”? Actually, make that the “last feature.” Though not entirely relevant to those users seeking quality protection at a good price, the STM Skinny is strictly a no-frills tablet case. The Spartan design of this one further accentuates the point: STM has made this case to protect the Sony Tablet S first, second and third priority. Simply put, you won’t win any style points when encasing the device in this case.

Also a bit problematic is the stitching around the edge of the exterior cover. Not exactly confidence-inspiring, the edges appear susceptible to wear and tear while the rest of the case could survive in a battle zone – a slight disappointment in an otherwise nifty and light carrier for the Sony Tablet S.

Pros

  • Water-resistant exterior
  • Low price
  • Trim design and light weight

            Overall: GOOD

            If protection is the first thing on the Sony Tablet S user’s mind, the STM Bags Skinny is an overall good bet. Until the limitations of the lack in bonus features becomes very apparent, the device is certain to stay safe and the case will surely be worth every penny.
