Incase's Protective Cover for iPad, available in black, green, purple, or magenta, is a 3.7-ounce rubber "skin" case for your iPad that's unique in that the back is essentially flat, making it a stable base for desktop use.

The rubber case easily slips onto the back of your iPad, leaving the screen and ports exposed. The volume and Sleep/Wake buttons are covered by the rubber exterior but can still be easily manipulated with a firm touch.

The reinforced sidewalls and extra thickness in the corners make this a sturdy, protective solution for your iPad (except for the screen, of course). The included “Boomerang Stand,” a flexible piece of plastic that bends to accommodate your encased iPad, provides a good viewing angle for your iPad in both landscape and portrait modes.

The Incase Protective Cover is surprisingly easy to grip, and the rubber doesn’t feel slippery or greasy. The case appears to be robust enough to handle most bumps and bruises without adding significant weight to the iPad. The Protective Cover has a one-year warranty and is a solid choice for an iPad cover.
