The Week in iPad Cases: A case for every season
In this edition of our weekly iPad-case roundup, you’ll find plenty of leather luxury for all tastes, a bit of waterproof sturdiness, and a case with enough battery power to last you several days.
The company’s Waterproof Sport Camera Case (all iPad models; £35) can be submerged in up to one meter of water and will withstand active use without no ill effects.
Despite being watertight, the case, which is available in black or white, still allows clear sound transmission and features a special clear window to allow you to use the iPad’s camera without having to take the tablet out of the case.
The CalypsoTab (iPad 2, 3, 4 and iPad mini; $169) is precision handcrafted from the finest Italian leather and features a specially designed microfiber interior to hold your tablet safe during transport while keeping it easily accessible at all times.
The case is available in black/black, white/black, red/black, or black/red.
The Props (iPad 2, 3, 4, and iPad mini; $80 to $120) is a family of cases that incorporates rechargeable batteries that provide up to 12,000 mAh of additional power to your iPad to keep it going for hours more than its internal supply alone.
Available in three different formats, the case is made from a rugged material for extra durability and doubles as a viewing stand in landscape orientation.
The Wrap (all iPad models; $50) features a magnetic closure and a convenient interior pocket for cables and papers; when called upon, it can turn into a viewing stand in landscape orientation.
The case, which features excellent padding to keep your iPad safe from bumps and scratches, is available in a variety of colorful variants, from floral motifs to abstract patterns.
The Joy Factory
The Axtion Pro (iPad mini; $150) is a shockproof and waterproof enclosure designed to comply with the highest military standards—and if it’s good enough for the folks in uniform, it will most certainly be able to help you keep your tablet safe at the pool, the beach, or during that extra-muddy camping trip.
Despite its impressive capabilities, the Axtion is lightweight and thin, and is, of course, compatible with The Joy Factory’s line of carrying accessories such as straps, headphone adaptors, and much more.
The Berlin (iPad mini; $45) sports a luxurious leather exterior and a velvety flannel interior that keep your iPad safe from bumps, scratches, and other everyday concerns.
Available in black or brown, the case also doubles as a viewing and typing stand in landscape orientation and is compatible with the iPad mini’s magnetic sleep/wake function.
The Rokshield v3 (iPad mini; $59) is made from sturdy polycarbonate with a removable rubber bumper to offer protection from six sides—and, with four integrated anti-slip grips, to make sure that you never drop your tablet. The integrated mounting bracket is compatible with Rokform’s mounting system, which lets you stick your iPad mini on a variety of surfaces.
The case comes in black, black/gunmetal, black/blue, black/red, aqua/white, white, or white/pink; the package includes a color-matched kickstand to prop everything up when you just want to unwind and watch a movie.
The Expert (iPad 2, 3, and 4; $55) is made from synthetic leather and uses a special technology “Clean-Grip” to hold your tablet firmly in place without any mechanical implements. It comes in ebony, espresso, regal purple, or ivory.
The case’s cover, which is also compatible with the iPad’s magnetic sleep/wake function, flips around to double as a stand for viewing or typing in landscape orientation.
The Florence (iPad 2, 3, and 4; $70) is available in black or brown and features a slim, leather book design with a soft, velvet lining to keep your iPad safe from everyday hazards.
The case’s cover, which is compatible with the iPad’s magnetic sleep/wake function, folds back to act as a typing or viewing stand in landscape orientation.
The CityGear Mini (all iPad models; $37) fits any tablet up to 10 inches and provides lots of extra room for papers and accessories thanks to its capacious zippered storage compartment. That compartment also hosts a business card holder, pen loops, and more.
Built from durable nylon and 3D mesh, the case also features a carrying handle and an easy-to-stow shoulder strap that makes it a breeze to carry your iPad around.
