Another Sturdy iPad Case and More – The Ekto 2 and Ekto Flex Kit for iPad 2/3

Here is another iPad case I ran across that would fit in the “sturdy” case category, the Ekto2 Case and Uzibull’s Flex Kit. The Ekto2 case for iPad 2 and 3 provides a protective case and the Flex case provides many different possibilities with its available attachments.

Ekto2 Protective Cover for Ipad 2 and New iPad, Black  (29.95; also comes in white) – Is a silicone material with protective edges.

                 

Wondering how protective this case really is?

Although I have not used this case, here is pretty convincing video on the Ekto2’s rugged construction and protection…

The Ekto FLEX Protect and Connect Kit for iPad (iPad 2 or new iPad) (49.95) – Provides the cases for protection along with several other features such as a shoulder strap and hand strap and available system for threading additional mounting systems to it.

Optional mounts:

UZBL Flex Tripod is sold separately (or with the system listed below).

FLEX Protect & Connect, w/lrg. flexible tripod (iPad 2 or New iPad) (59.95)


The Flex provides some of the mounting systems available for the Ekto Case (59.95).  Advertisements indicate it includes:

– Ekto2 protective silicone skin
– FLEX undercover frame
– Padded shoulder strap.
– Comfortable hand strap
– Quick release rotating pivot with 1/4″ tripod thread so that you can connect a variety of accessories.
– Large flexible tripod

Other mounts it shows but could not be located include and suction mount and a clamp mount:

Ekto+ iPad  case, specifically for schools is a sturdy but slim to fit in carts and has access to controls is also available (29.95) .

Comments:

The Ekto cases appear to be reasonably priced, sturdy, protective cases that also provide additional options for transporting (shoulder strap attachment feature) and mounting. I could not find where to purchase the suction or clamp mounting systems, but these options would also be a welcome addition for positioning for special needs students or clients. I hope the Uzibull continues to develop their case and attachment possibilities.

You can also find a listing of sturdy cases available in the OT’s with Apps Amazon Store.

I wish I was in the market for a case – I would love to try the Ekto iPad case and kit out! Has any one have experience with this case?
