By "artisans" they mean starving child laborers ;)

No seriously, their stuff is gorgeous. Wife has had two iPhone cases - original then 3GS. Great materials and workmanship.

Their iPad cases don't fit my usage needs or I'd have one in a heartbeat.

For starving child laborers they do good work.:D

Incase 10.2" Neoprene sleeve for netbook.

The iPad fits great in it, although there is a little wiggle room.

Incase 10.2" Neoprene sleeve for netbook.

The iPad fits great in it, although there is a little wiggle room.

I wonder if that's the same one that is at Target, which was recommended earlier in the thread. I felt the one at Target lacked the padding that the Incase neoprene sleeve has for the iPad.

I waffled back and forth, and as much as it killed me to spend $40 on a neoprene case, I felt a little more comforable with the iPad one in the event I ever dropped it.

I don't think you could go wrong with either one, but I'm happy enough to say I'd certainly buy the iPad version of the case again.

whats the best clear hard case for the ipad? i want to get something like the hard cases that speck sells for the mbp.

I just got my Belkin Grip Vue (clear version), and it feels great! It also doesn't have a horrible plastic smell to it.

What I like:
1.) It gives me the feel that the iPad won't slip out of someone's hands.
2.) It gives me security that if the iPad gets bumped up against something, that there is enough protection, especially around the corners, to protect it.
3.) The clear plastic helps retain the iPad's native color scheme.

What I don't like:
1.) The only thing so far - the price. However, I'm willing to pay an extra $10 or $20 over what I would normally pay for something that isn't flimsy and will protect my iPad.

great thread. There is just too many options to choose from.

Anyone heard something about this one?:

http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/reviews/entry/scosche-kickback-case-for-ipad/

Seems to have the best of the case protection, and stand versatility. It looks abit bulky, but if the quality is nice it might be what I need.

EDIT: found some more pictures

I just ordered this case (http://www.senacases.com/apple/apple-ipad-cases/ultraslim-cases/) in the baby blue today. It doesn't ship until May 5. I am going to use this for transport when I want something super slim that I can just throw into my purse, but I am still on the lookout for a nice folio or other sort of case that I can keep on the ipad but still use it.

http://www.senacases.com/apple/apple-ipad-cases/ultraslim-cases/black.jpg

I also liked the copper on this case, but I ended up going with the light blue.

Almost forgot... I got 20% off the preorder price for entering the code PCWIPINK11 in case anyone is interested (they have three other iPad cases as well).

Are these available online anywhere? As has been mentioned in other threads, even the Belkin website doesn't list it. Or are people getting these direct in the Apples store? I guess I need to wait and see what becomes available in the UK once the iPad launches here.

I received this cover today in the mail. The beige color looks exactly like in the pictures. Shipping was from the Los Angeles area and took 1 day to process and 2 days to get here in Northern California. It is built well with a stiff but slightly padded front and back of leather. The flap is held in place with 3 small button magnets sewn inside. The inside covering that touches the iPad is a gray felt material. Also has a strong chemical smell.


I ordered the same case and received it today. Mine had a slight chemical smell (possibly dye) when I first removed it from the plastic wrap but that dissipated within a few minutes. Either I got lucky or they've cleaned up their act. Hope yours does likewise. I agree that it's a pretty nice case, but I'm not sure that it's really leather. It might be a good quality vinyl. What I like is that it doesn't look like a case for electronics but like an ordinary portfolio of the type that usually holds a notepad. All in all, worth the $29.

I finally received my Cimo soft gel case. it's terrible. the holes don't quite line up with the buttons/ports and it's not very "soft gel" feeling. it feels like cheap rubber. I definitely prefer the hard plastic back I got from newertechnology

I ordered one of those from Handheld Items - advertised on MR - and I think they are the same thing. The cases smell absolutely wretched and do not have enough grip to them to stay on the iPad. The edges keep flopping up. It was cheap, so I am not going to bother to return it, but just wanted to share.

I did also order one of their iPad PadShell (http://www.handhelditems.com/ipad-crystal-clear-polycarbonate-padshellor-case-clear-p-132382.html) and like that. It seems to be the same as the NewerTech (http://www.newertech.com/products/nuguardclear.php) shell, but I saw the one from HHI first.

I use the HHI shell and a Zagg shield for now. I'll be slipping it into something else for travel later.

Hi Nova69. Glad you got a case that had the smell go away. Mine is pretty unusable at this point. Aired it outside 2 days, then tried a ziplock bag with baking soda in it to soak up the smell. Still smells strong and horrible. I think it may be the glue that holds the inside felt in place. I wound up giving it to a neighbor with an iPad who can't smell anything due to hayfever. He may change his mind once the hayfever season is over though. :)

All the best.

Couldn't decide between the Apple Case and the Belkin Grip Vue, so I just got both. (Both cases were on display at the Apple Store.) Figured it was smarter to get the cases before Friday, since I don't have a reserve and won't be getting there too early. Not to mention the cases are a hot item in-and-of themselves.

I have 14 days to return either.

Strongly believe I'm going to keep both though.

Sidenote: The Apple Store in Pentagon City (Va) has more Apple Cases btw.

Poorly thought out in design. The hinge to close the case fall right where your hand should go to hold it when you fold the front flap back. Almost every case has this issue. And $72?

that is a beautiful case. i would be all over that if it was sub-$50 and came in black or gray.

Looks like the macally bookstand case with a little more case material.

Let me know if you dont like it and feel like taking a $30 loss on it :D

Yeah. The only thing missing is an embroidered "Steal an iPhone, get an iPad FREE!" message...

...they should have Gray Powell as their endorser.

In theory, I guess you could use the touchscreen through the case, to play music, etc. But like I said, I'm not sure I'd want to advertise what's in the bag.

This Ipad sleeve is laser engraved with a typographic design, which details the IPAD's specs and functions. It is a very slim leather sleeve with a high grade acrylic fibre board for protection. The inner is suede. It measures around 10 inches by 8.5 inches with a depth of over half an inch. weighing about 250 grams. I am getting the sleeve for $35. I am trying to get a white or grey one. Really like the Laser engraving. Gives it a nice look.

Well, you said "show me your cases" plural, so here you go.

I've got the Belkin Grip Vue + Griffin Elan Passport combo. Protection for the kids (Belkin) that fits inside an executive folio for dad (Griffin). There's no appreciable increase in weight, and only a millimeter or two of thickness. No one at work can tell the Grip is on the iPad, and the kids can slide it out in seconds very easily by pulling aside just one of the elastic corner holders.

Why choose between a Grip or a Folio when you can have both?

Isn't the Griffin Passport Elan just great?

No one can tell I'm carryig an iPad, everyone just thinks it's a daily planner and am very organized. Plus, for it having elastic corners it does a great job protecting the device. Def. My favorite. My iPad does not walk out the front door with me unless the passport élan is with it.

I too have a belkin case for it, however I went wi the Belkin Swell and not the Grip. It's black, not clear and is my favorite combo ever.

I've seen others carry their iPad naked and though I tend to agree that it looks awesome to carry your iPad bare, the Belkin Swell case feels much better on the hands when holding the device for a while playing games or surfing the web.

Do the bulges actual help with gripping, or are they annoying?


I'm still waiting on the Incipio DermaSHOT that I pre-ordered from Amazon a few weeks ago for $19.99. Since I ordered it, they've raised the price back to $35, and now it's down to $30. It looks like it's FINALLY being shipped, because I am now unable to cancel the order.:cool:

On the weekend, I bought the Belkin Grip Vue (smoke black) for the time being. I really, really like this case, but once I receive the DermaSHOT, I'll decide which one I'll keep.

Yes they really do help. You can read my review, link in my sig.
I have also been sent the DermaShot, and it looks exactly the same except it's less bulky and heavy. Fantastic cases!

Oh, that's good to hear! I guess the honeycombing inside the case actually does reduce the weight then.....

I'm stoked to get it. Hopefully I'll like it better than the Grip Vue, and I'll either return it (if I get the DermaSHOT in time), or sell it.

The bag cost $49.60, which is significantly lower than the price quoted on the Kipling web site. It comes in some fabulous colors too. Check it out at:

You could go for the Hard Candy Cases Squish skin but it's not out until mid May otherwise you might want to check out the SwitchEasy Nude case in Fuschia, my wife loves that one.

I have a video showing all colors and if you scroll towards the end you will see me demo the Fuschia on the iPad.

I don't have the guts to carry this case around, but maybe some of you do ;)

If you enter May25 at checkout, you save 25% (approximate cost of shipping) by Mother's Day. Or Outlet15 to save 15%.

It has a built-in speaker, which is nice.

Handhelditems.com - it is one of their TPU resin skin covers. $13.99

I have one of their polycarbonate cases (http://www.handhelditems.com/ipad-crystal-clear-polycarbonate-padshellor-case-clear-p-132382.html) and I like it. Clear so you can see and protects.

BTW, their silicone skins do not fit very well. They stretch too much and do not have enough of a lip to stay on. They smell horrible too.

I really like that case! I'd rather it be black or dark brown, however.

My main purpose for the iPad is something to carry around for a calendar, appointments, a to-do list and email. I need my case to be functional (i.e. a place for business cards and a few sheets of important paper.

I'm not looking for something 'sexy', but rather something 'functional'. I seem to be in the minority here.

I agree with this post but have not found just the right product

I am looking at a silicon skin to provide some basic protection and slip resistance - posters elsewhere have suggested that the bare ipad is slippery - I live in oz and have preordered but won't have mine till the 28th - and I am also interested in a leather zippered compendium something like http://www.leatherandluggage.com.au/shop/detail/Samsonite-Leather-A4-zip-compendium-SCM162-BLACK/

but without the zip so that it can't scratch the screen. I am not interested in a case that holds the ipad at an angle. I have ordered a http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.37195 to solve this problem

I would appreciate any suggestions as to an alternate zippered compendium - preferably with a soft left hand side to provide the scratch protection

It's called a KinjiKraft felt sleeve for iPad. It's made of grey felt and leather with a nice button for keeping the iPad in place. It's very much like the Hard Graft cases, but at a fraction of the cost!.

These are almost a direct copy of the Hard Graft (www.hardgraft.com) cases, which seem to be much nicer designed and crafted.. I have three for my iPhone, MBP and iPad, and they stay nice. I have had the MBP sleeve for three years and it's literally still as new.

Jun 5, 2010, 01:57 AM
Have this exact TPU case ^^ and used used it with my InCase convertible folio. It was a tight fit - not easy to get and out - but perfectly functional once in the folio. In fact, it resoved of the issues that many people have with the incase - that the iPad doesn't stay in place ( & aligned with the holes). I sold my incase but have another one on order (long story). My intention is to use the iPad with the TPU at home and put it in the folio when I am out & about.

Jun 5, 2010, 07:13 AM
The my clear TPU case came in yesterday from my ebay usa seller. I like the smoke better over all. The clear looks better if you are looking at it from behind. My only problem with new case is that the mail man stuck it in the mailbox bent with 98 degree's texas heat and now I have these two bends half way down the case. I'm trying to figure out how to get the case back to normal or I'm shipping it back and will just stick with my smoke.

2nd note: I ordered the DMS folio leather case from Amazon and will let everyone know how it fits with the TPU.

Any nice leather case is going to look like you're carrying something expensive. I carry a leather briefcase often, so what's your point? I'm not going to carry a crapped-up nylon backpack into a business meeting, sorry. But I'm also not walking down the street in Queens or Brooklyn, either.

Try the Hard Graft ones (www.hardgraft.com). You will immediately see that thpse are much better crafted and there are some different varieties to choose from. They fit quite snugly, so don't know whether a case would also fit. But why put a case in a sleeve??

Hard Graft also has a new sleeve that functions as a folio and a stand. It's not cheap, but looks great and seems very functional.

Dammit I didn't even know they had a product like this. I like incase products (I have a medium messenger, and a couple of sleeves). This seems really nice to hold the ipad and keyboard (which is what I carry almost everywhere now). It is a little on the fat side though. Right now I just slip the ipad in the faux fur lined notebook sleeve in my messenger along with the keyboard.

I cannot decide on which case to buy..I just dont really see any cases that look that great.

I dont want a folio case, something that is just around it and is kinda bounce protectant, that isnt hard plastic and scratches easily

My Kipling Lancelot bag arrived today. Although not an official computer/netbook bag, it's just perfect! Here are some pictures:

The Ipad fits just right - in the main compartment, even with the bulk of the Incase cover:
http://i298.photobucket.com/albums/mm257/mango_r/HELP%20OR%20INFO/bag4.jpg

The front zipper compartment holds my phone, and all iPad peripherals - camera connection kit, cables, headphones, cleaning cloth, etc. There is also a large zippered pocket on the outside, rear of the bag - for wallet, etc.

The overall dimensions of this bag are so perfect, it's as if it was made for the iPad!
It comes in quite a few colors to choose from.

I almost bought that exact bag in red yesterday. It did look perfect. I wasn't sure I wanted a bright red bag, though.

I got such a good deal on one of these Fossil ebook reader cases (http://www.fossil.com/en_US/shop/reader_journal_large-ml9411p.html?parent_category_rn=&N=0&Ntx=mode+matchallpartial&Ntk=FossilSearchEn&Ntt=kindle&rec=4&pn=sr&imagePath=ML9411222) that I'm thinking of adapting it for my iPad. If I can't adapt it to hold the iPad securely (it's a little too tall, so the straps aren't secure enough for my tastes), it has a pocket into with the iPad fits perfectly, and there's ample room for my Pogo stylus and Dagi stylus and cleaning cloth and so forth. I like the "READ" stamp on the cover, and I hadn't seen anything else I wanted (that was within my price range).

I think the Kindle is shorter than the iPad. I like the Kipling because the height is just perfect, and the front pocket provides room for my peripherals, like the camera connection kit, earphones, cleaning cloth, etc. Also, it provides just the right amount of padding for protection against dropping!

Hm. Then I have no idea what sort of ebook my case was made for! It's about a centimeter too tall top and bottom for it to feel like a secure fit, but the inside pocket is just right. It functions for now. And I don't feel panicky about walking around with a nekkid iPad.

The Fossil store also had portfolio-style pouches for iPads that someone recommended higher up the thread, but I couldn't fit my iPad into the one they had on display without really forcing it, and I stopped because it looked like I was about to damage the pouch.

I might go back to the store to try sticking my iPad in a Kipling and see if I might like it in a different shade. Thanks.

I just wrote a review of two bags from Cocoon Innovations. Both the Gramercy and Harlem slings are well made and if you need a case for bicycling/etc., the $55 Harlem is comfortable and a nice case. For just carrying an iPad, I'm going with the $30 Gramercy.

I love it ,thinnest name brand case I can find , it is absolutely sleek and sexy , also really light weight

Haven't bought this yet however I have the Switcheasy Rebel Touch for my iPod touch and it's extremely thin and durable. I threw it (out of anger) down the road once approx. 100 ft and got no damage to the device. The case, however, did break but they sent a new one for free as those cases had a manuf. defect and a recall was produced (talk about luck). Basically, I am very pleased with their service and once I get the time out of laziness I'll be ordering the nude for myself too.

Check this out! It's called the Clamcase, and will be available in the Fall. It incorporates a bluetooth keyboard in the lower section, and a "lid" that will hold the actual iPad. Here is a quote:
"Clamcase has announced a clam shell type case of the iPad that includes a built-in bluetooth keyboard. This case acts as a case, a stand and a keyboard all in a single accessory and is sure to become a hit with iPad owners that travel a lot."

My wife has the Executive Jacket for her Kindle and it is really a nice case for about $50. (I think she got it on Amazon for about $35).

This one is by far my favorite. I originally liked the incase a lot, and planned to purchase that one because my backpack is currently incase so I thought it'd match well ^^ but now I love this one, looks clean and professional. but do u think the edges would really wear out that bad over time?

Here is the case for any heavy duty public use of the ipad. Best for kiosks or point of sale business use. see more and order at www.ipadenclosures.com We call this the full metal jacket. It is made of stainless steel and uses tamper proof screws to lock it down. In January we will have a locking version with a key. This is not for consumers looking to carry it around, instead it is built to be mounted to a wall or stand or on a table and used in a locked down kiosk mode running a single app. Great for surveys, customer feedback, display, contests, email gathering for newsletters, tradeshows, etc.

I thought that case was cheap and ill-fitting, so I took it back to the Apple Store and picked up the Knomo Snap Folio instead. It was a little on the pricy side ($99.95) but since I didn't pay for the iPad itself, it was worth it.

This is my first and only iPad case, I bought it with my iPad on day 1. It's the Incase Convertible Magazine Jacket. The front cover folds around the back and turns into a stand that can be set to two different heights. It's very simplistic & slim. Also, it's a hard plastic but it feels smooth and soft to the touch. I highly recommend it.

I am liking both the Incase Convertible Book case and the Magazine jacket. Not sure which one I will get when iPad 2 comes out. What are the 2 "rails" on the back of the case used for?

The rails are used so the iPad can be stood up. The front cover folds around and you prop it up under a rail. Look at the 3rd and 4th picture on my last post.

So i recieved my Patsons Case after just a week of waiting. I've had it for a few weeks now so thought i'd post some photos. I apologise that they are a bit out of focus!!! I'm really pleased with it, i know i'm behind the times and have only just got this case for my girlfriends ipad 1. I'm currently waiting for an ipad 2 case for me from Portenzo but it's been 5 weeks now! This patsonscase is really nicely made and has been great so far, especially for the commute to work, people often ask about it! It's a shame Patsons don't yet do an ipad 2 case.... Come on Patsons. Anyway, we'll see how it fairs up against the Portenzo!!

It's really sad when you see review plants like this. On Amazon there are 11 5-star reviews for this case. If you look a little closer, they are all written by people who have reviewed the exact same products- some hemp products, and this case. All the products reviewed are given 5-stars with similar glowing phrases. Oh, surprise, the case is sold by "Stoned Organic Products." Sad...

Just got the yoobao case today which I posted I was getting in this thread and I love it. Very light and adds hardly any bulk. It doesn't add as much protection as the Switcheasy Canvas does so if it is dropped outside I'm not sure how well the iPad will hold up but it will do for around the house etc.

Just picked up my brand new black 16gb Wifi to go with the purple Switcheasy case yesterday - the case surprised me by ending up in my hands in Australia only 4 work days since I placed the order! Love the iPad (of course) and I really love the case thus far. Hoping I don't experience any of the issues others have described. The only down side is that it's a tad heavy and quite thick (detracts from the thinness of the iPad 2) but it does offer great protection and the stand options are fantastic (and very stable) - the three "official" ones and also bending the cover back the other way to an angle akin to what the official Apple case for the iPad 1 was like. Really glad I went for an "all in one option" rather than smart cover + back protection + sleeve... nice to be able to snap it shut and put it in my bag easily.

Just find this sharp Ultra Case Folio cover for my iPad 2. It looks sharp and smart, especially this black and white mix.

It can be folded into stand and is quite stable. It has a tough back to hold and protect the bag. It also has a band, which hold the iPad and won't let it fells over. I really love it.

This Sleeve was designed for the die-hard adventurers who need to protect their iPad from hard knocks and drops. You can actually check videos from youtube regarding to this kind of sleeve. Then, we were pretty convinced that the protection that G-Form gives your iPad can’t be found anywhere else.

I love MAKR! I have a handmade leather iPhone sleeve from him, mine was $90. Everyone will laugh but once you see one of these in person you can't deny the quality. I've had mine for 4 years now while my other friends have spent over $100 in cases for their iphones. I've had just ONE. And it's lasted through all my iPhones and still looks perfect. I really want one of these iPad cases also. So jealous :D
