I'm a Filson brand loyalist, for the US made stuff. I'd seen this on Filson's site but the price wasn't worth it. I ended up getting the blaze orange version of this iPad case, with no intention of using it for an iPad. Truth is, I already have a better iPad case, that the Filson couldn't beat. It was $19. That said dropping $40 for a blaze orange, US made, bombproof case was a no brainer. I ended up using the case to hold a score of bore-snake rifle and handgun cleaners, some gun oil and few other cleaning tools. Plenty of room for that stuff. The case fits perfectly in the Filson field tote with everything else I take into the field to shoot clays, target practice or hunt. The organization and quick access to the cleaning supplies makes the chore more enjoyable. And in a pinch, I can slide a handgun into an interior side pocket and go to the pistol range. The leather straps are their standard bridle leather that is strong and will soften up even more (I have 4 other Filson bags) and even though its a dry twill (I prefer their oil tin, soy wax or shelter cloth), I know it will take a beating. The heavy duty zippers and YKK pulls are little over done for an iPad case, but Filson doesn't do many products 'lightly'. If you use it for just an iPad, it'll last 3 lifetimes. And having had a lot of experience with their field products, I know this thing will last a long time in the field and just get better with age.
