I'm actually not sure if this is an actual Apple product. I bought a smart cover from Staples, which was in the regular cardboard-back, clear plastic window-front packaging. This cover came in a cardboard box? So I may be wrong, but I don't know if it's legit or not. I wouldn't care except it cost about the same amount as a real Apple case. It's a nice case anyway, I just really wanted the saddle brown.
