Hold my iPad very securely even in the hard back case I have it in & the magnetic sleep/wake front cover. I love that it has 2 way zippers. I can put my iPad in the case for safety while I'm charging it & the zipper pulls close right up next to the charging cord. I also love the detachable lobster claw handle. This makes it very easy to put on my wrist if I choose so it leaves my hands free for other things. The case is lined with a very soft lining & the other case is very sturdy. I am very pleased with this case.
