Is the weight manageable? Feels like it's adding quite a bit of bulk

Did up a quick video review of this here (edited on the iPad Pro):


Some other points:

1. Very nicely designed and built. Otterbox quality.

2. Cutouts for USB-C, speakers, mics, camera/flash and Pencil are perfectly aligned with the iPad Pro. The USB-C cutout is surprisingly wide, I managed to push in my Nintendo Switch USB-C cable in to charge.

3. Outside front cover is some sort of soft plastic material with a leather grain texture. Inside material is microfibre but the fabric is not thick/plush as Apple's standard, hopefully this means less dirt gets picked up. Though this also means the screen is not going to be "cleaned" by the front cover.

4. Front cover magnets are quite strong. It's so secure that it's easier to open the front cover if you remove the pencil first (explained in my video).

5. The flap can be tucked back and attached to the front cover with the magnets, in reverse.

6. Can feel heavy with everything on, since the case is 290g+ which is about 60% the weight of the iPad Pro (~468g). I still think it's ok for one-handed use, this would be up to individual.

7. The case is surprisingly easier to remove than to install. But of course can't compare to Smart Folio's magnetic system.

Any other questions feel free to ask.

I just got the case as well. Added a fair amount of bulk and weight to my iPad, but after seeing the bending video by Jerryrig on YouTube, I thought a little added protection might be a worthwhile tradeoff. Especially when the Apple cases donít offer any protection for the corners, and they really arenít any cheaper.

Are you able to show a photo when the front flap is folded behind along with the pencil flap?

I got iPad Pro 12.9" Space Grey 256GB wifi + 4G
Otterbox case 360 case, forgotten about the disadvantage of the backing, as I got the Otterbox case for my iPhone XS the back really easy to get scratches. But it hold the Apple Pencil very well.

Thanks for sharing the pictures on the Otterbox case 360. Do you think they will release other colours in the near future?

They might as their case for iPhone XS comes in many colours. But still depends on market demand, as only Apple Store selling them
