Phoozy iPad Case Review: Space Age Capsule Case Looks Both Retro & Trendy

I wrote this review on the anniversary of the moon landing. It's about time we had a space dividend for iPad users! Enter the Capsule Case ($59.99) that Phoozy sent me to try. The case is sold in a gold or silver finish that looks like something an astronaut would carry. For those who don't want that kind of attention, Phoozy also has a modern camouflage design or basic black. I prefer the gold, myself.

These cases are about more than good looks. They offer soft but decent protection, water resistance, and even floatation capabilities. It comes with a shoulder strap that you can clip on or off. And speaking of space, there's even a space for the Apple Pencil. The case is sold in two sizes, one for the sub-11" iPad and one for the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro or 13-inch MacBook.
