      I use my iPad on construction sites. When I bought my iPad Pro I also bought the OLDER version of Zagg Rugged Book for iPad Air because that was the only rugged keyboard case Zagg offered and the box said it would work for the iPad Pro. I had to do several revisions to make the buttons, speakers and camera hole fit and I bought an after-market attachment to hold my Apple Pencil since there was no attachment on the Zagg Rugged. Eventually the hinge began to get loose so with Geek Squad replacement policy I exchanged it for this one, which had only been available for a few weeks. This is a VASTLY SUPERIOR DESIGN - made specifically for the iPad Pro and has a nice unobtrusive slot for the pencil. Versitile options, screen easily detaches from keypad, etc. The durability seems as good as my other Zagg Rugged but it's actually a bit slimmer, which is great. My one complaint is that you need to push the volume buttons pretty hard to get it to work, but hey - if my only complaint is needing to apply extra pressure on a button - that's a first-world problem! All around I really like it.

      Great, protective case just a little heavy/bulky

      I purchased a new iPad Pro 9.7" (Verizon) to replace my iPad Air 2. Unfortunately, the Logitech Type+ case for the Air 2 doesn't fit quite right (camera is blocked, for example). With these iPads running over $600, I wanted a good, sturdy keyboard case. I chose the Zagg Rugged Book Pro for several reasons. First, an excellent backlit keyboard. Second, dedicated place to hold the Apple Pen. Third, durable and rugged construction which should help protect my new iPad Pro. Fourth, the design of the outer case gives a good gripping area, which means I am less likely to drop it. Many other keyboard cases are smooth finished and, while they look nice, easily slip out of your hands when carrying. I would have given this a "5" star rating except that the case is a bit bulkier and heavier than I prefer. Also, there is no automatic on/off when you open or close the keyboard case. I'll adjust to the larger, heavier keyboard case in time. If you need a very protective keyboard case, look seriously at the Zagg RuggedBook Pro.

      The only case/keyboard to have, best of both!

      I rarely leave reviews or comments, but I had to for this item. The absolute ONLY case/keyboard to buy. The best keyboard, the best case...a sturdy and protective case when disconnected from the keyboard. And when combined, it looks and acts like a 9.7" laptop. Strong magnets keep it together and it WILL NOT come apart until you pull it apart. The material it's made of makes holding the pad feel comfortable and confident. It adds a fair share of weight to the iPad, that is a pro for me! I feel like I'm holding a true piece of hardware and not something that's going to shatter due to an accidental drop. The keypad feels natural and is accurate...plus it has a backlit keyboard! When the case is connected to the keypad and it is closed together, it is sharp looking and once again, a laptop feel. I literally bought every single case/keyboard for the iPad Pro 9.7" before this one was released and NOTHING even came close to comparing to this item. Oh, the Apple Pencil holder...just a perfect bonus to a perfect item. Conveniently located a securely holds your Apple Pencil or any stylus you may have. So stop reading reviews and go buy it now! At 150.00 dollars, I feel it's under priced!

      A MUST HAVE!

      When I bought my iPad I was looking for a keyboard that would be easy to use and still offer protection. This case provides that and more. Starting out with the build quality, This case provides enough protection to save my iPad from a 5ft fall. It's made of of a tough rubber and when closed protects my screen. It also has a slot for the stylus on the backside of the case. Function is great on this case. Battery last for a long time and I'm glad its not something I have to charge every night. The keyboard is back lit which makes typing in low light situations a breeze. The keyboard can be connected up to 3 devices and its super easy to switch between devices with th dedicated Bluetooth buttons. And lastly the ease of use, while I love the iPad, typing on the screen is not ideal when you are constantly writing email, reviews, and anything more than 50 characters. The clicks on the keyboard are satisfying and seems to hit every time.

      Durable & Stylish

      I am glad I purchased this combination Rugged Book Pro Keyboard Folio for my iPad 9.7. The magnets which hold the two pieces in place are strong enough to pull together without having to try to align the keyboard to the ipad. The slot to hold the Apple Pencil or another type of stylus is easy to reach and holds well without too much slippage. The stand that is built-in to the iPad side is durable enough to hold the screen in place. I haven't experienced any issues with this, although I would guess that it will start to loosen up after it has been moved around enough times. My only complaint is that the keyboard doesn't seem to responsive to all keystrokes. I particularly notice this on the first letter of an entry. I would guess it has something to do with the bluetooth connectivity. This can become a bit frustrating after a while, and thus I tend to push the keys a bit harder than I do with my MacBook just to make sure that the input is properly received.

      Not a bad at all

      I can agree with other posts about it being rugged, but one good thing would be a lack of smart connector. I almost returned it after trying to connect it to my iPad Pro, just buggy, or maybe I'm just having a bad luck with connecting it. I would for sure have to say, that having it in 2 parts is a pro and con On one end you get a ability of changing keyboard separately from iPad and not being stuck waiting for it to charge. You can just detach and work on iPad as ur keyboard is charging. On the other end it is not in one piece and makes it harder to hold it, which I would REALLY not recommend, simply because of how heavy it becomes. So pro: easy to charge and fairly comfortable to type it being angled like a regular keyboard, offers protection to iPad. Cons hard to sync due to lack of smart connector, a bit heavy, not in one piece hard nothing to keeping it closed and hard to tell from which side to open it.

      Fantastic Keyboard with One Problem

      I really like this keyboard. I initially chose to purchase it because I wanted something super protective and versatile for my iPad pro, which I use daily. Because this has a detachable keyboard, you can use the iPad as a tablet or like a computer and the moveable stand allows you to place the iPad at almost any angle. This keyboard is well-made and does a great job. There are 2 potential issues with it, though. First, this keyboard is pretty bulky and heavy, so it adds quite a bit of weight to an otherwise light iPad. It is still much lighter than a computer, though, so it doesn't bother me one bit. The real problem I have is that sometimes the bluetooth connection isn't as smooth as it should be. If the keyboard dies or I turn it off, I have to re-pair. Not a huge problem, but definitely an annoyance.

      Nice keyboard case

      I bought the Rugged Book as a replacement for my Otter Box. It was a good decision. The Keys are easy to use and the back lite is very nice to have in low light situations. It is a little heavier than the otter box. It's also a little wider. The hinge works very well and seems the be well made. Having the ability to connect up to 3 devices could prove to be a good thing, though I doubt that I will ever use this feature. I feel very comfortable with my iPad Pro in this case. The Apple Pencil fits nicely in the top of the case and is easy to get to. This is a very convenient feature that was well thought out. Thank you Zagg.
