Nice, light case for the iPad Mini 5
March 30, 2019
I had debated long and hard whether to get a portfolio style or trifold style case. In the end, I didn’t want to fuss with having to pull part of the iPad out for it to stand in one of the slots on a trip. Constantly removing and putting the mini back in the case would cause unnecessary stress. Also, with a trifold cover, and the mini in the case at all times, you shouldn’t have to worry about microphones or cameras on the back ever getting blocked assuming all the cutouts line up well. Lastly, I’m still on the fence as to whether I get the Pencil, so to future prof, I wanted a case with a pen loop.
At the time, this was one of the few cases available that checked all the boxes. All of the cutouts are perfectly aligned. I can easily press all the switches, speakers, microphone and camera all have good clearance. The exterior has a nice texture, that is easily grippable and won’t easily slip out of your hands. With an iPad mini in the case, it feels slightly heavier than a Leuchtturm 1917 A5 journal.
Time will tell on how well it will hold up, but at this point, I’m pleasantly surprised.
