Armour plating for your iPad3,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Trent Grabbit/Gladius iPad Case compatible: iPad 4, iPad 3 and iPad 2. 360 rotatable, leather hand strap, stand/movie wall clip and Matte Finish.
I bought this New Trent IMP37G about two weeks ago. The IMP37G is no plush real leather case, it is more like robust, precision lightweight plastic armour plating. Not wanting something that looked over-sumptuous but preferring for something more functional, like my old BookArmor (tm) case for my ebook reader, I find this product fits my iPad3 and my requirements admirably.
The two separate panels of the hingeless case clip securely on the back and the screen faces of the iPad3, yet the front panel can be gently and easily prised off by finger pressure to reveal the screen. The back panel provides impact protection to the back as well as the corners, the points where it clips on to the iPad3, although thanks to the good quality leather strap at the back, I have not yet dropped the iPad3 in its case to test it.
As shown on the picture on the product page, you insert one hand into the strap for a firm grip. The strap is attached to a disk which rotates in the back panel, allowing use left or right handed, portrait or landscape mode. It is perfect for use on the move, e.g. on stage, walking around presenting or recording information. Maybe I have yet to get used to it, or my wrist is not subtle enough, but it feels less comfortable after a while holding the device this way when sitting down. The simple plastic bracket, which clips into the "Apple logo hole" on the back to serve as a stand, will probably get misplaced sooner or later as it is difficult to insert my hand in to the strap with the stand clipped in place.
Allows use of standard screen protectors. No magnet to make the iPad go to sleep when you refit the front, but this is not important to me. Holes and cut-outs provided to allow for all iPad3 functions. No place to attach a stylus.
Affordable, robust, clean-lined look, functional, well designed and pragmatic.
