This is my 4th feather case, and I’m as satisfied as ever.
Got the Ipad Mini… and love it. Super thin and light weight. I use it daily for internet browsing on the couch. I’m totally shocked how thin the Ipad mini is and I didn’t want to take away from it. I wanted a case to protect the back and against light bumps but I didn’t want to add bulk.
I tried the NGP case, and as it adds a lot of protection, it’s very very heavy!
I held my mini with NGP in one hand and my wife’s with no case in the other hand and the difference was so drastic I returned the NGP case in favor of a feather case.
The feather case as expected is really thin and light weight.
I don’t feel it takes away from the coolness of how light the Ipad mini is.
My favorite feature is the material. It’s a matte / grippy material that in my opinion is perfect. It provides just enough “grip” to allow for it to not feel slippery in your hand.
My main complaint about “no case” was that I felt like with the round edges and smooth finish that the device could be dropped.
The case does have a small lip around the outside that sits proud to the screen.
I’d assume this is so that it makes contact instead of the glass if set face down.
If given the choice, I’d rather have it sit proud and protect the screen.
Lastly, my personal preference… I want a “thin” case to protect the back and when traveling I would put the mini inside a high quality neoprene sleeve to protect the screen.
I am not a fan at all of the smart covers, so the fact that this case is not compatible is no bother to me.
In summary, the case is thin and light weight. The NGP would provide maximum protection as other cases probably would too.
For my situation, back protection and thin and light weight were the main requirements and this case fits my needs. I can’t believe this product have negative reviews!
I strongly recommend A++
The fit and size is great, but it's so smooth that it slips out of your hand. If the material was more rubber, it would be perfect.
