For our latest review, we are covering the be.ez’s LA Robe cover for the iPad Mini. The one they sent us for a review is the Black Allure, which is very sophisticated with the stripy design despite being very neutral in it’s appearance. A perfect companion to your iPhone 5 case, if you have one!
The case itself is made of a special material called Low Resilience Polyurethane. It provides a memory foam like feel, where any dent or nudge on the case is perfectly absorbed, and after a little while the case regains its former state. This means that your device gets a foam like protection from all sides, and is resistant to nudges, dents and slight bumps. The material itself is 5mm thick, allowing it plenty of room to absorb impact.
As can be seen from the picture above, we pressed our thumb into it, going from right to left, and you can see it not only absorbed the effects, but also is regaining its former state.
As far as the fit goes, the iPad Mini fits in perfectly. In fact, there is enough room to even slide your iPad mini in with any extra case or cover on, such as the Smart Cover. What makes this case even more attractive is that this will fit most 7” format tablets and devices. This means that you are in for a treat whether you have an iPad Mini, a Nexus 7, a Kindle, or anything in that size. Despite being a very comfortable and not a tight fit, the device inside is very snug and does not move at all. This means you can happily throw one of these in to your backpack and not worry much.
Then there are the finer details. A high quality zipper with an ergonomic design keeps the device safe and secure. There is a fleece lining on the inside for that extra protection. The case itself feels good in your hand, and has no slip to it, allowing you to carry it around easily.
All in all, this pouch works very well. It provides ample protection, and allows you to store your device with a case on. This combined with the prices makes this a very good pouch indeed.
