Saying this is exactly like my old ipad tactical case is spot on and high praise. I waited for this case after getting the iPad Air and after 48 hrs it is like having a brand new ipad. The same great features of the original case but the ipad actually fits better in the case and aligns better with the holes for the home button and camera. Same great add-ons as the original and same ability to remove if they are not needed (I'm looking at you black-out hood). Quality construction and materials, easy and light to hold. Main feature to highlight over any other Ipad case I have tried is that the hook and loop on the cover flap and the back of the case make it so that when the case is open, the cover flap will stay in place. This is unique and I have no idea why other case manufacturers have not fixed this annoying oversight. Oh well, good on FCB.
