I like M-Edge cases, and have written about their personalized Design-Your-Own cases in the past. I had one made up with a cover replicating an issue of iPhone Life Magazine!
Such custom logo'ed cases make great business gifts. But some of us iPad owners also have kids and need a more rugged, childproof case. So I was excited to see their latest offering, the SuperShell.
The SuperShell is a solid foam oversized protective form-fitting case that is very ergonomic and comfortable. There are tons of ridges to make it easy to grip, for both big and small hands. The SuperShell has bulky corner protection too minimizing any damage in a typical drop. It doesn't cover the screen but the design minimizes the chance the screen would suffer from impact.
All ports and buttons (except the mute switch / orientation lock) are accessible, although recessed so you might not find them at first.
My only complaint is that the lime green color screams out 'I am for kids' but I would have no problem using this as a case in the boardroom, if it came in black, white, or another neutral color! Why should kids have all the fun? Fortunately, working out of my home office, I don't need to worry about the boardroom! And at $30, the SuperShell is about half the price of traditional rugged iPad cases.
