Although most cases are meant to be at least somewhat protective, it is rare to see one that the developer has deliberately subjected to abuse for marketing purposes. That’s what G-Form has done with its Extreme Sleeve for iPad ($60): this seemingly simple sleeve — available in yellow or black — has withstood having a bowling ball dropped on it and being thrown from a plane.
What makes it so protective is the materials it is composed of. Poron XRD is a foam material that’s normally thin, light, and flexible, but upon impact, it automatically stiffens and absorbs over 90% of the kinetic energy, keeping your iPad or iPad 2 safe.
A durable metal zipper opens and closes the sleeve when you need to pull the iPad out or put it back in; neoprene is used as an inner liner.
