The iPad Air Case in metallic blue basically does a great job protecting your iPad and holding at different positions. It keeps your iPad stable on your desk. The magnets ensure the case is properly closed when you carry it. The case is light and accommodating to the touch. The Metallic Navy Blue color (my choice) gives a very stylish look, formal for male urban users but also with a retro touch. It reminds me to those electronics that by the beginning of the 2000 cool to have. Remember? All in all, a good purchase for an economic price and a must if you want to keep your iPad free of scratches.
