I typed this review on the FabricSkin, and the more I used it the more it grew on me. The soft, shallower keys have more friction and less travel, but feel great when typing quickly. It's a real keyboard underneath, unlike the all-fabric Microsoft Touch Cover, which had no key travel whatsoever. The keys are widely spaced -- how did they do it? By compressing keys, that's how.
Just like on the Folio, Caps Lock and A are combined, as are the Tab and Q keys on the left side. Punctuation keys are shrunken; so are the Shift and Return keys. It's weird but it's not as bad as you'd think for everyday typing use.
The case is thick and durable: the iPad snaps into a rubberized plastic case, and the rest of the case's wraparound thick nylon covering gives the total package a nearly drop-proof feel. I'd feel safe chucking my iPad into a cluttered backpack with this thing on. It comes in a variety of colors, including the bright red of our review unit.
But is it too much? It feels chunky, and seriously heavy -- nearly laptop-weight. With a fourth-gen iPad inside, it weighs 2.7 pounds, the same as some laptops.
I do like its protectiveness and the semi-rugged feel, and the keyboard's actually really good. But my unit had a fair bit of flex on the keyboard case, too, not from the keys but due to the curve of the keyboard cover underneath.
