They are that tough.

editors note- this sleeve goes quite well with the the DODOcase BookBack decal to protect the back of the iPad Mini and make it feel all the more luxurious. We recommend these two products together if can swing it!
KAVAJ Berlin Leather Mini Case
KAVAJ seems to have found the sweet spot when it comes to thin cases that use genuine leather. We’ve already posted an in-depth review of them here in fact. Made from solid thick leather, this case features a book style smart cover that folds back into a 2 position stand. The iPad Mini fits into a remarkably thin leather envelope to hold it in place. The leather is quite tight at first, but don’t worry, it stretches out quickly to for that perfect fit. The exterior is a cognac leather and the interior is a velvety flannel that is just gorgeous. The KAVAJ Berlin is a beautiful thin leather case that retails for about $40 (when you can find it in stock, which is hard because it’s so popular). Check Out the KAVAJ Berlin here.
Bear Motion Brazilian Buffalo Leather Folio
The Bear Motion buffalo leather folio case for iPad Mini is another beautiful thin leather option, made from actual Brazilian buffalos, which actually do exist! The hide is quite tough and comes in a richly colored vintage red. The cover folds back like a smart cover for a multi-angle stand, and it features smart magnets as well for auto sleep/wake functionality. The Mini snaps into a tight frame that has cutouts for all the functions and buttons. The inside of the cover is lined with a soft felt material to, which when combined with the deep red leather adds up to a very sharp looking case! It’s thin, looks great, and retails for around $30.
