I just can't see the appeal of a case that doubles the thickness of a device. I think Apple's magnetic folio case is about the closest thing to perfection out there (although I feel like it needs corner protection), although the material they use on the surface that starts to look weird over time. Hopefully they make a leather version at some point.

I do like the looks of the Journal. I guess I'd have to weigh it, literally, against me my Apple iPad Folio/Apple Keyboard folio in a third party case. The comments on the longevity of this manufacturer's product reliability is worrisome. But, I'm not finding my Apple iPad Folio very durable with just plain handling.

I'd love an Apple leather product for my 2018 iPad Pro 12.9". But I'm guessing Apple will be moving on to the next iteration. So, release of a new leather Apple folio seems less likely. I really loved the old style iPad leather cases.
