Out and about
This week's roundup of new iPad cases features several that are designed to help you take your iPad everywhere from the beach to the workplace—even when your workplace is a dusty construction site.
The Jot Tote (iPad mini; $45) features a soft-touch exterior with a semi-gloss finish for a great combination of form and feel.
The back shell, which is compatible with Apple's Smart Cover, also sports a pull-out stylus holder—perfect for taking notes while you're on the go.
The BukCase Originals (iPad mini; £35) “britifies” your tablet with a thoroughly old-world look that's handcrafted by a team of bookbinders.
The case features a birch frame and comes in red, blue, or grey.
The Gallery (iPad mini; $50) is a stylish waist pack that sports enough room for your tablet, a smartphone, and plenty of accessories.
Both the main compartment and front pocket are zippered and padded for safety, and the bag is finished with a special water-resistant finish that keeps bad weather (and accidental spills) at bay.
The Nüüd (iPad Air; $130) is now available for Apple's latest tablet model.
Like its predecessors, the new version features a completely waterproof construction that's submersible in up to 6.6 feet of water, and that keeps all kinds of contaminants away from your iPad's surfaces and screen.
The Ice Leopard (iPad 2, 3, 4, and iPad mini; $60) protects your tablet with a slim, one-piece shell that resists impacts.
The case features a purple leopard-print finish, and is part of a whole collection of similarly themed accessories.
The FramaSlim (iPad Air; €95) is handmade by expert leather craftsmen using only high-quality calfskin, with an ultraslim design and a special taped frame that keeps your tablet in place.
The case comes in ten different colors and is compatible with the iPad Air's magnetic sleep/wake feature.
The Hands Free (all iPad models; $55) is a special case designed to help you carry your tablet without keeping your hands busy.
The case features a unique attachment loop that lets you hang the case from your belt using a specially built clip, or from your shoulder with an optional strap.
The Cooper Kai 360 (iPad Air; $50) incorporates a wireless Bluetooth keyboard in a clamshell design that allows you to orient your tablet at multiple angles for optimal viewing and typing.
The case comes in silver, blue, pink, or black.
This Is Ground
The Clavin (iPad mini; $75) is made from real leather and features an envelope-like design, with a floral embossed pattern and a brass stud closure.
The case comes in tan or black.
