What case fits with Grip Vue?

I am looking for a protective case that will fit around an iPad that has a Belkin Grip Vue on it. It looks like a lot of the neoprene cases (and the Waterfield cases) may be form fitted to the iPad and would not be loose enough. Any suggestions?

I doubt you will have much luck with that. I doubt many if any cases are designed to hold the iPad loosely enough to get a proper fit.

I don't have the Grip Vue but I purchased a 10.2" Incase net book sleeve from Best Buy just so I could keep the iPad with a case on in it. It seems like it would fit pretty well with the grip vue on it.

That is a sleeve not a case. Just about any sleeve will hold it with Grip Vue.

Someone posted a video on this thread last week showing the Grip view fitting nicely into a Hard Candy case.

Staples has a $7.00 Solo netbook sleeve with extra zippered pocket that will fit.

I'm hunting for the same thing. I had a Built NYC sleeve that was fine for the iPad naked but was way too snug for the iPad with the Grip Vue. Most of the sleeve descriptions out there aren't descriptive enough.

- I want some padding similar to the incase sleeve
- Zipper on top in the vertical position
- Zipper design where it covers the zipper from the contents and while sliding it in/out

The incase sleeve is at the top of the list right now but I think the iPad version may be too snug and I believe the netbook one opens from the side.

You have 3 options that I know of:

1. Hard Candy Cases Bubble Sleeve - check out my videos at http://www.youtube.com/metagamers both the bubble sleeve review and the 4 cases review where I show the fit of the grip vue in the bubble sleeve.

2. Hard Candy Cases Hard Sleeve - its the same as the bubble sleeve but NO bubbles.

3. SF Bags "EXO" case. This is the ultimate sleeve case I show in my video but made bigger to fit the Belkin, Apple Case, etc...

Hope this helps.

I have the apple case, and I was able to fit my iPad with the apple case on, inside of the incase sleeve(the one with the zippers) so you should have no problem getting an ipad with the grip vue in it.

Is that the netbook incase sleeve or the ipad one?

Netbook:

iPad:
http://www.amazon.com/Incase-Neopren...655090&sr=8-14

It'd be easier if they'd list the measurements :P

I use mine with the Incase Slip Sleeve and it works great. Just the right size.

I have this case from Walmart and it fits perfectly with Belkin Grip Vue. What makes it nice is both cases are Belkin.

The belkin 10.2" case fits perfectly with the grip vue. This is the way I have been bringing it to class everyday.

And cheap! Does the Belkin have any padding or is it just the neoprene?

I listened to PSYCHONAUT who posted above with a video. I have the Belkin Grip Vue and the Hard Candy Case. The two are a great fit and match. The only drawback I can see is having to remove the grip vue in order to use the dock. (I have used the dock only once with the bluetooth keyboard).
