Seidio Cases cover your investment!

Seidio has sent some great cases recently, and wanted to post up a blurb about their products along with a mini-review. The ACTIVE case is a versatile design that not only protects your iPad on all sides, but also serves as an excellent stand. For iPad 1 users looking for a minimalist soft cover, the FlexCase is an attractive choice with re-enforced edges to help ward off damage to your not-inexpensive gear.

I was sent a FlexCase cover and an ACTIVE case/cover combo stand. The ACTIVE is really 3 products in one. A protective cover with a rigid plastic frame, and a versatile outer shell that can be used as a stand. The iPad's corners are especially well guarded with using either of these cases, and all ports are accessible.

Also checked out the smoke-tinted FlexCase on my version 1 iPad (above right). It's a polyurethane soft cover that adds minimal bulk to the iPad. The corners are slightly thickened and provide some shock absorption along the critical points of the unit. The cover provides good grip, especially along the edges. I especially like that getting to the dock port is not a hassle with this case.



You can check out more great products at Seidio online here. The new ACTIVE case ($69.95) is currently in black (shown above), but Saffire Blue and Amethyst colors are coming soon! The FlexCase for iPad 1 is available in a kaleidoscope of colors and retails at $24.95. Grab them at the links listed above in the teaser...
