rooCASE iPad Convertible Folio Case

rooCASE is a convertible folio case for the 1st generation iPad, which provides 20 adjustable angles for typing or watching movies. Folding the case into stand is very easy. When used as stand it is quite firm, therefore typing on the virtual keyboard can be performed in good conditions.

 

The case is made from genuine leather with suede interior and it is available in red, magenta, pink and two variants of black: simple and smooth.

It is a bit bulkier than the Apple original case, however many users appreciate it because it looks and behaves better, in their opinion. If you are familiar with rooCASE, we’d be happy to hear your thoughts in this respect, so you are welcome to share them with us in the comments section.

If you like it, you can take advantage of the limited time offer which is now available on eBags and get the rooCASE Convertible iPad 1 Folio Case for only $39.99. Does it sound like a good deal?

Timbuk2 Freestyle Messenger Bag for iPad and iPad 2 is more than just an iPad bag. It features a sewn-in iPad sleeve, but it also has multiple inner pockets, so one can carry several items around, without needing an extra bag. It fits the iPad 2 with Smart Cover or other similar case. The iPad 1 will fit naked or with a very thin case, so you’d better check the size if you want to use it with a bulkier case.

G-Form iPad Extreme Sleeve

Did you ever wish your iPad resisted a bowling ball falling over it?

Did you ever wish your iPad resisted a bowling ball falling over it? With the G-Form iPad Extreme Sleeve that is possible: the G-Form team tested it in lab conditions and proved the iPad inside an Extreme Sleeve doesn’t “care” about a 12 lb bowling ball dropped over it from 3 ft height, while the iPad in a normal rigid case, although still functional, gets cracks all over the screen. The video is interesting, you can watch it here:

Isn’t that impressive? People on the go, as well as those working under severe conditions, will surely appreciate this kind of protection for their iPad. The technology used in the iPad Extreme Sleeve is proprietary to G-Form and it’s called PORON® XRD™. This material is soft, flexible, waterproof, and it has excellent impact-absorbing properties, even in case of repeated impacts. G-Form is an important player in the impact protection market, developing products that make tough sports safer.

G-Form iPad Extreme Sleeve Features:

G-Form iPad Sleeve is available in yellow or black

G-Form iPad Sleeve is available in yellow or black

  • Excellent impact absorption properties
  • Excellent protection: the interior is made from a strong, durable and soft fabric
  • Flexibility: unlike other impact-protective cases, this one is not a rigid case, it’s a flexible sleeve, similar to a glove with hard shell parts
  • Durability: PORON® XRD™, the material this sleeve is made from, resists to repeated impacts, without changing its properties over time
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Easy maintenance: the material is easily cleanable
  • The G-Form Extreme Sleeve fits both iPad and iPad 2. The iPad 2 fits even with a Smart Cover on. The iPad 1 fits without any cover. The zipper has a smooth finish and it is designed to stay out of the way, so the iPad doesn’t get scratched when inserted or removed from the sleeve.

    The G-Form iPad Extreme Sleeve is available for pre-order now on the G-Form website. At $60, it looks like a good investment, even if it doesn’t look as sleek as other iPad cases.

Why are Designer Sleeves better than normal iPad sleeves? Well, they are not better, they are just more colorful and eye catching.

Designer Sleeves Features:

  • Maximum shock, scratch and moist protection, secured by the thick neoprene cushions
  • Zippered exterior pocket helps with the storage of iPad accessories

These iPad sleeves cost less than $30, good price, taking into consideration their quality. They are perfect for everyday use, travels or simply storage of your iPad to keep it protected from children or pets. It seems they fit better the iPad 2 than the original iPad for which they are a bit too snug, making zipping around corners quite tight.

If you have experience with Designer Sleeves, please give us a short review to help our other readers decide if they want one, a few of them or none. Thank you.

STM Bags iPad Jacket

Unlike many iPad accessories, this STM Bags jacket fits both iPad and iPad 2. It’s a very small bag, great for carrying your iPad around, but with very limited storage space. If that’s what you need, you can have a stylish, durable and protective bag with room for your iPhone or for your headset for less than $25.

It’s funny, this jacket solves the man purse or “murse” dilemma: “how do you carry an iPad in a way both practical and masculine?” (topic tackled in a New York Times article, where STM messenger bags are described as the perfect solution for carrying your iPad in masculine style).

 

STM Bags iPad Jacket Features

  • Durability: the bag is made from water-resistant, durable nylon
  • Protection: the bag is padded with high density foam and the interior is lined with a soft material
  • Comfort:
    • removable and adjustable shoulder strap
    • quick grab handle
    • zippered front pocket for cables
    • slider pocket for the mobile phone

The STM Bags iPad Jacket fits the iPad in the Apple original case, as well as the iPad 2 with the Smart Cover attached. What’s cool about it, is that you can carry it around without people suspecting you have an iPad inside. This is awesome, especially while traveling, as tourists are so many times perceived as easy targets by local burglars.

Order yours on eBags right now, then come back here and let us know what you think of it. Thank you.

If you got an iPad and decided not to upgrade to iPad 2, you may be a bit frustrated because accessories for the new iPad 2 are so cool! Speck thought about this when they came up with the Candy Shell Wrap for the original iPad. It looks and feels like the iPad 2 Smart Covers from Apple, with its removable flip-close front cover that folds into a stand for typing or watching movies.

The Speck CandyShell Wrap provides excellent protection, thanks to its special hard-shell design with rubberized soft interior lining. This lining is a very effective shock-absorber, so it might save your iPad’s life in case of accidental drops. Buttons are protected by little covers, so the dust won’t get inside.

The removable front cover folds into a stand

The flip-back panel allows using the iPad together with the dock and keyboard. The front cover has two hinges which enable folding it into a stand, with multiple viewing angles. We wonder how many times we’ll be able to fold it before it breaks, but only time will tell, so it’s all good for now.

This iPad case is available on only one color, DarkLord Black. It is made from TPE and Polycarbonate and it weighs 14.8 oz.

Have you got one of these cases for your iPad? If not, you can order it on Amazon. After you get it, we’d love to have your review here, on our website.

If you’ve got an iPad 2, you may want to take a look at the younger sister of CandyShell Wrap, the Speck PixelSkin HD Wrap for iPad 2.

Grove iPad 2 bamboo skin - perfectly compatible with Apple's Smart Covers

If you saw our post about the Grove Bamboo iPhone 4 cases but you were looking for an iPad case, you can smile now: Grove also makes cases and skins for iPad. Actually they make cases only for the iPad 2, but you can get your iPad 1 a very nice bamboo skin from them.

Bamboo is a great choice for an iPad skin because it’s durable and lightweight and because it can be really thin, yet protective.

Grove bamboo iPad skin features:

  • it is made from real bamboo
  • it is extremely thin: only 0.025″
  • it is compatible with the “Smart Covers” from Apple
  • it can be either plain or laser-engraved
  • it attaches on the iPad with 3M adhesive which leaves no residue when removed

You need to take care, in case you choose to remove the skin and to reuse it, that it might crack. Grove gives no guarantee the skins resist to removal.
Here are a couple of patterns from the Artist series:

This is what MC Hammer commented in The Oprah Show about ZAGGmate:

The day before he flew to Chicago for The Oprah Show taping, Hammer says he had a meeting with Apple to pitch a new iPad case, the ZAGGmate by ZAGG. “It wasn’t an invention of mine, but somebody came up with a case that if you drop it, the screen doesn’t break and then if you stand it up, it becomes a keyboard—a Blue Tooth wireless keyboard. So when they showed it to me I said, ‘Well, Apple has to see this.'”

ZAGGmate iPad Case Features

  • Aircraft-grade aluminum with anodized finish
