    The otter box doesn't sound that great.

    There's a company that makes clear bags specifically for the ipad but I can't remember the name right now. I remember watching a video that shows them using them in the kitchen while cooking.

    You might be referring to Cleverwraps.
    http://www.cleverwraps.com/

    I have not tried these, so I don't know how well they work.

    Hi there,

    If you are traveling somewhere soon I would seriously consider trying this too. The iPad is light, lasts a very long time on the battery and packs very powerful features. Whether it is work, entertainment or getting local information the iPad does it all.

    Well about Ipad case, I think http://is.gd/FK5e3D would be a better choice.

    Happy Vacations.

    So are the clever wraps or dry case breathable ? Otherwise what's the difference fom ziplock? And if breathable then wouldnt that also let moisture in?

    nice cases, but in no way address the OP's questions.

    I use the Incase Travel Kit plus with the iPad in a CEO Hybrid. Ipad fits perfectly into the incase even with the hybrid and will has room to store the keyboard, charger, cables, and a MF cloth.

    Perhaps I am a simpleton, but can you share why devices fry in a non-vent zip lock bag and not in the non-vented plastic bags with interlocking mechanism that keeps dirt and water out?
    Thanks

    I'm looking for something to protect from small moisture, tanning oil while reading at beach/poolside. zip bag i guess would be ok for this. ?

    certainly looks like a zip lock would do same, i was just showing other options similar to the clever wrap earlier in the thread.

    That's what I'm doing when I go this summer. Too much to worry about keeping it protected!
