i've had 3 type covers. All non Alcantara. 1 originally purchased with my Surface Pro 4, another I replaced it with last year when some of the keys stop functioning and a 3rd I inherited from my father's Surface Pro 3. 2 of them have had the magnetic strip detach - fixable ALL of them have become peeling tattered messes, that stain too easily. I don't know if this is a climate thing, but i've seen other users here with similarly looking tattered Type Covers. I genuinely wish the Type Cover had a keyboard like the HP Elite x2. Metal. Sturdy. Durable. so help me decide. Alcantara Type Cover OR Brydge 12.3? and why?
