The Peak, an iPad 3 case by DeviceWear happens to be a Vegan leather case. Within, the material is microsuede. Stitching is showcased along all edges of the case. The stitching seems to be straight, but I am not a fan of cases with any sort of visible threads. From past experience, over time strings will slowly begin to hang. I’m not it will happen with this case, although it might.
This case covers both the rear and front of the case. A cover is available to use as an iPad stand. The viewing angles are quite nice, but the stand lacks a portrait mode viewing angle. Other than that, everything’s alright.
One function of the case I’ve found to enjoy is the hand strap. I’ve never felt secure holding my iPad with just one hand and the hand strap has helped me overcome the fear of dropping my device.
As for all the ports and camera’s, they aren’t as centered as I would prefer. The back-facing camera isn’t centered within the case, its more off to the top right. The home button is similar, being off-centered to the left. As for the facetime camera, its being covered by the material. I have to remove my iPad to use the front Facetime camera. I’m not sure if I received a bad model or what, but these are my issues.
My only other complaint about the case is the exposed corners. Each and ever corner has an opening, I’m not sure why, but this is a major cause for possible drop damage.
Afterall, The Peak is a $26.95 case, so you get your moneys worth I guess. I love the material and how the case performs, but the un-exposed camera and exposed corners can be a huge deal to certain people.
