There are few rugged case options for the Apple iPad 2. Seidio is one of the few manufactures that makes such a case. Seidio has released their ACTIVE case line and is now available for the Apple iPad 2. The Active case is available in Black, Blue and Amethyst/ Purple.
Seidio’s ACTIVE case line features a hybrid design. It is a two part case, silicone skin with an outer durable polymer shell. The benefits of this hybrid design it provides optimal protection. The Seidio Active case for the Apple iPad 2 features these same benefits.
Seidio ACTIVE case for the Apple iPad 2 has three pieces.
The first layer of protection is the silicone membrane skin. This wraps snugly over the iPad 2. The silicone skin provides shock protection against bumps and misfortune drops. The silicone skin also helps prevent dust and dirt from getting in between the case. Seidio has done an excellent job making sure you have access cutouts for the side lock/mute button, headphone jack, mic, camera, charger port and speaker.
The second layer of protection is the durable polymer cover that overlays the silicone skin. This gives the entire case extra strength and provides your Apple iPad 2 added protection. Once it is one, it protects all four corners of the iPad, side and back. It is coated with Seidio’s famous rubberized texture material. This provides added grip, durability and prolong life. With the rubberized coating, it is much more difficult to scratch the surface. There is clear plastic that covers the Apple logo and prevents it from getting scratched.
The third part of the case is the multi-purpose protective cover. This is truly a great addition to the ACTIVE Seidio case. The multi-purpose protective cover provides the ultimate protection for the Apple iPad 2 LCD screen. It also features
Seidio’s signature rubberized coating. And it has two special skid pads. One on the left and right side. The skid pads helps prevent the cover from sliding when the video stand is in use. That is right, you read correctly, iPad stand. The multi-purpose protective cover has a belt in iPad stand with fifteen (15) different angles to choose from.
The iPad stand is a fantastic option to have. With the fifteen different angle options, you are sure to find just the right angle for all of your activities. The iPad stand is very simple to use. It unsnaps from the multi-purpose protective cover, pull down the chrome stand and select your angle. There is velvet material on top of the stand that offers extra grip while your iPad is resting against it. When you are done using the stand, simply snap it back in place and it will be ready for the next time you need to use it.
