Case-Mate: Venture Gold iPad Stand Case

I travel quite a bit. One thing that I have learned to make my trips easier, is to travel with my iPad instead of my heavy laptop. I have tried a few cases for my iPad, but nothing has really made me fall in love. I had the chance to check out the Venture Gold iPad Stand Case from Case-Mate for my iPad 1 and I am in love!

It’s not easy being this good-looking. The new iPad Venture case redefines the meaning of well-dressed accessories with its stylish approach to protecting and displaying your iPad. The Venture fits any wardrobe from the fashion-forward style of metallic gold to the vintage brown.

Snap the case closed with a secure button closure that guarantees protection for your iPad.

My thoughts:

First off, the look of the Venture Gold iPad Stand Case is beautiful to look at! It looks like a leather binder book case.

The front has a snap on it that snaps closed while not in use.

Once you open it, the case opens to show your iPad (1).

On the back of the case, just under where the iPad is, has snaps so that it remains snapped closed while you are using it, or you can unsnap it and use it as a frontward case so you can look directly at it.

You can adjust it to set more upright, or lean back.

On the bottom of the iPad 1 case, you will see that there are spaces for the USB cable and holes for sound.

On the top, there is an opening for the power switch on the top and volume on the side.

Overall: I love the Case-Mate Venture Gold iPad Stand Case! The price is just under $90, and I feel that it is very reasonable with as much as I have put this case through while traveling and while in use at home. I like that you can use this case upright in landscape or in horizontal mode. I travel with a blu-tooth keyboard and this case makes it very nice to use in either direction and type with my keyboard, but also makes it easy to use on a plane in either direction. With the way that the case is made, I can easily prop it up on my Elliptical and read while I am working out, or set it up so I can browse the internet or type if needed.

    This is a nice case! The price is steep but I believe you when you say it’s worth the money. My husband has a case that needs to be removed before charging the unit. What a pain! It’s nice that they thought of things like that when designing it.

  3. This is a gorgeous case. What a great idea for my sister for mother’s day!
