STM Skinny Review



Reviewers call this iPad case an outstanding value. It garners high praise from experts and users for providing effective protection while staying true to the iPad's sleek design. Many point to the tongue-and-loop closure, which secures the cover when the iPad is carried around in a bag, for instance, and could turn on by accident. It keeps the screen protected and preserves the battery life.

STM Skinny reviews at iLounge and The Wirecutter highlight this iPad case as an outstanding value, saying it comes highly recommended. Why? It has a precise fit, a protective outer shell, and a front cover that works well with the iPad's screen-activation feature, explains the reviewer at iLounge. Also impressive is the all-over protection this case brings to the table. It covers the corners, top, and bottom of the iPad, a design The Wirecutter specifically looked for and deems necessary in an iPad case. Judging by STM Skinny reviews on Amazon, users are similarly enthusiastic about this case. One consumer admires it for walking the fine line between superior protection and a slim profile -- a must for many iPad owners.

The STM Skinny for iPad (starting at $35, Amazon) provides complete protection against daily jostling with a hard outer shell, soft inner lining, and durable, water-resistant fabric while maintaining easy access to the ports, buttons, speakers, and camera. The front cover folds back when the iPad is in use to create a stand for typing or viewing. The stand is held securely in place with the case's tongue-and-loop closure. When closed, the front cover uses built-in magnets to activate the iPad's sleep mode. The closure keeps the cover in place during transport to preserve battery life. The STM Skinny comes in five different color options for second-, third-, and fourth-generation iPads, as well as a version for the iPad Mini.

With experts exalting its protective powers and users loving the sleek design, we can't help but think the STM Skinny is truly the best option for iPad owners looking to protect their devices from the trials of everyday use. For a low price tag, what more can you ask?
