10 iPad Cases Fit For Summer

Taking your iPad along on vacation this year? Then you will want a special case to protect against sand, surf, and other tablet enemies.
4 of 11

Uh, oh, somebody dropped the iPad in the pool. Or kicked sand on it at the beach. You need the Pelican i1075 HardBack Case, built to withstand the rigors of outdoor living, including water, dust, and inadvertent drops. Its molded liner adds shock protection and won't scratch your iPad. An integrated easel allows hands-free viewing in vertical and horizontal modes, and a keyboard is included. Caveats? The HardBack is a clamshell case that opens like a briefcase, so it isn't the best choice if you want fast access to your iPad. Price: Around $50 online.

re: 10 iPad Cases Fit For Summer
Great set of case reviews. I've tried a couple already. One that I have come to like a lot when traveling in the summer is the iLoc Case. It's inexpensive and disposable but re-usable. I use it for my iPad around sunset surfing the web. Don't have to worry about getting sand in my iPad and saved me a couple times during high tide - you know those times when all of your stuff gets blanketed with water when you're looking for shells. I pick them up at http:\\ for just a couple dollars.

Pelican HardBack? It has a keyboard!!! Real die hard Apple fanbois don't converge a frdige with a toaster! Apple said that keyboards for a tablet are bad bad bad, so don't do it - not even when it turns your tablet into something useful.
