As one of two new soft fabric and plastic cases from Capdase, ProKeeper – SlipinShell for iPad (TBD) is a sleeve-style design with a hard screen-protecting frame in the center, opening from the top to provide access to the iPad. The external neoprene fabric is lightly dot-textured and padded, while the internal contrast color neoprene isn’t. It comes in six different color schemes, and will be available in mid-May.
On May 13, 2010, iLounge published The Complete Guide to iPad Cases and Protection, a multi-page comparison of over 70 different iPad cases and film protectors, sorted by genre. The following details were added to this piece by that comparison article; please click on the link above for additional comparative discussion of similar protective options.
We typically steer clear of recommending sleeves for iPods and iPhones, but iPad users may find that they make more sense. The concept is to totally envelop the iPad inside protective material, using a flap or zipper to open and release the device when it’s needed. In almost every one of these cases, the designs speak for themselves—you either like how they look, or don’t—so we’re sorting them by price and focusing our brief notes on fit and scope of protection, with bare opinions otherwise.
Does ProKeeper fit? Yes. Is everything protected? Yes. Our gut feeling is that this case will fall in the $20-$30 range when it receives an official price.
