Snugg Leather Case for iPad Mini Review

51F6zaBZvELIf you take a look over at Amazon, you will find no shortage of iPad Mini cases. In fact, it would be hard to argue that Amazon has one of the largest selections of iPad Mini cases anywhere, which means it can be quite easy to find that perfect case you’re searching for. Although, because of the large selection, it can also be hard to narrow down your choices. I’ll make it easy for you however and bring up one of the more popular cases featured on Amazon and that’s the Snugg Leather Case for the iPad Mini. The Snugg Leather Case is a folio style case and I’ve already looked at quite a few of them in the past. Though it may seem similar to all the other cases, it does have a few unique features which I’ll talk about in a bit.

 

Design and Usage

Snugg sent me their traditional black Leather Case, though it is available in a wide range of different colors to suit your particular style choice. The case itself is made from leather while the interior of the case is lined with premium nubuk fibers. Nubuk is kind of like suede but is created from the outer side of leather hide instead of the inside. It is very soft, has a velvet-like feel, and is very strong. It lines the entire inside of the case so it will scratch up your iPad Mini.

Unlike other cases however, the flap on the Snugg has Velcro attached to it which means once your iPad is in, you can securely close the flap back in place and it will not slip open over time. The “pocket” where the iPAd Mini resides has all the necessary openings for all ports, buttons, and speakers. There is even a camera hole on the rear of the case so you don’t need to take your iPad out to take photos.

Now, there are a few notable extra features on the Snugg Leather case that most other folio cases lack. For starters, the inside cover has a hand strap built in that allows you to securely hold your iPad Mini. It uses an elastic strap so it sits flat when not in use. It’s a great feature for those with slippery hands. Another feature not usually seen is the inclusion of a little loop that allows you to hold a stylus. Not many folios have this so it’s great when you find one that does. Last but not least, you can use the Snugg as a stand for watching videos by propping the cover up and securing it on the little flap on the back of the case.

Features

  • Black PU leather premium case which folds in all the right places
  • Automatically wakes and puts the iPad Mini to sleep
  • Elastic hand strap makes it easier to hold and use the iPad Mini
  • Stylus loop that can be tucked behind your iPad Mini when not in use + velcro flap to secure iPad tightly in place when in landscape position
  • Camera hole cutout on the back and full access to all iPad Mini ports/connections

Final Thoughts

I really like the Snugg Leather Case. It’s one of the better folio type cases I’ve used that has every feature you’d want in a case. It’s protective, made of premium feeling materials, can work with the iPad Mini’s auto sleep/wake feature, and it can be used as a stand for viewing videos. As a bonus, it also includes a hand area where you can store a stylus and a hand strap for securely holding your device.

There really isn’t anything not to like about the case. It’s very well made, affordable, and good looking. Snugg sells their case exclusively on Amazon for $24.99 and you can find it here. It’s also available in several different colors as well.
