Thought I'd share my experience and thoughts on this. Was looking for a nice leather folio case for the surface. I've gone thru a lot of those cheaper ones on eBay and amazon w my first surface so I decided I wanted something more quality this time. So I got this and I got it for around $40. First the good. Its just the quality of the material. It is real nice and top notch. I don't think it adds that much bulk to the surface (better expect it will though if you are looking for one). I thought for the price its a nice high quality product. The pen holder and the ability to use the kickstand is a plus. That's the only thing I liked about it. THe bad. The locking mechanism - it's HORRIBLE. I don't know who ever thought this will work. it attaches to the type cover very loosely and it will easily get disentangle with any kind of maneuvering. I use my SP3 as a tablet quite often and remove the type cover and reverse it. There was no way I could figure out how to do all that without it detaching from the case. The kickstand - there is no way to use the SP3 without having to spread the case apart, so you really occupy a lot of space if you are using it as a laptop. I gave it over a week try and finally said it is not working for me and just annoys me every time I try to use it so I finally returned it. So this is a DONT BUY!!
