When buying a product such as the iPad, some people like to buy matching accessories from the same brand. But with Apple’s iPad 2 Smart Cover, we don’t think that’s the smart choice. We recommend something along the lines of this awesome Carbon Cover.
Apple’s Smart Cover, while nice looking and functional, offers absolutely zero protection for the back of your iPad. Since an iPad is typically used on the go, this is no good. The Carbon Cover offers full protection of the front and back of the iPad 2, on top of having a carbon fiber look by using a material called carbon fiber leather (a synthetic leather embossed with a carbon fiber pattern). The back has a polycarbonate shell wrapped in leather on the exterior for a very high-end look and feel.
The reason Apple’s cover is called “Smart” is because it offers the functionality of automatically waking and sleeping your iPad 2 when you lift up and place down the cover. Ion understood customers didn’t want to lose that functionality, so it is also integrated it into the Carbon Cover.
While Apple’s Smart Cover uses four-folds on its cover, the Carbon Cover uses three-fold. The main reasoning behind this is that it gives your iPad a higher viewing angle, making your viewing experience much better when doing things like watching videos.
The other thing we like is how slim the case is. For adding full protection to the iPad 2, the case feels like it’s supposed to be part of it. Good looking protection without bulk is a big win in our books.
Obviously here at Carbon Fiber Gear, we specialize in real carbon fiber products and there is only a select number of items we carry that just has the carbon fiber look. We only carry these select products if we truly love them and we truly love the Carbon Cover. Thin and sleek, the Carbon Cover is the perfect companion for your iPad 2.
