Anyone that knows me knows that I love Fossil!
Imagine how excited I was to learn that Fossil was going to sponsor me with a free tech case to review! I selected the Marlow Tablet Easel in bright blue to house my iPad. Don't worry, it is a very tasteful blue.
I waited anxiously for my tech case's arrival which was dragged out over last weekend; duty charges needed to be paid on arrival. The case was initially delivered Friday during the half hour time period that I left the house that morning...of course. I received my tech case Monday afternoon and I tore into the package.
The product was delivered well packaged to prevent any damage and it was easy to slide my iPad into the given enclosure. The Velcro tab is secure and ensures that my iPad won't slip out. The overall construction is sturdy and stylish and there are openings provided to easily allow for charging, adjustment to volume, earphones, speaker, etc. Standing the iPad is made easy by positioning the case at one of two sewn in levels or by standing the case up like an open book and there is a pocket to slide in a few papers. The exterior material is leather and the interior material is ultra suede and offers a soft surface against my iPad screen and I love the finishing detail of a snap closure which keeps my iPad safe and secure inside the case. I must mention, I love the feel of the case. It is substantial but not bulky and I can't say enough.....stylish, stylish, stylish!
I was previously using an Apple Smart Cover to protect my iPad screen. It was less sturdy than this case (obviously, because it was just a cover) but I do miss the automatic sleep/awake function and the multi positional construction of the cover, strictly for the benefit of a varied typing angle. I find that, with this case, I only have the option of typing while the case is flat on the table, which doesn't bother me but is just something to adjust to from my Smart Cover. This case is accurately named as a Tablet Easel and does just as it says.
My personal experience is that this tech case is far more sturdy and definitively an overall better investment for using and protecting my iPad (while also being far more fashionable and stylish) than my previous cover. I recommend it to anyone who values reliability, quality, and style.
I have easily toted my iPad (in its beautiful and sturdy new case) to watch my kids at gymnastics, to lunch meetings, and everywhere in between. I could easily imagine anyone from a young and stylish professional to a more seasoned but also very stylish mother of two using this tech case! I love it!
This tech case is priced at $80 US and is available to order online and purchase in-store and also comes in a few other colours: Chestnut, Flamingo Pink, and Light Orange. The measurements are: 9.75"Lx1"Wx8"H which makes this case compatible with iPad 2, 3 and 4. Fossil also has great shipping and return policies. Check out their website for more information.
Thank you, Fossil, for sponsoring me with this fabulous new tech case to review. I highly recommend it!
