Available in both Smart Cover compatible and non-compatible versions as well as an original iPad case (note: it's not one size fits all with these cases), the SofShell is a crystal clear skin that's made from a proprietary (in other words, top secret) elastomer (chemical speak for a polymer that's akin to rubber). Slipping the cover onto my iPad 2 was easy, though the company graciously provides videos for those that need assistance with installation. Those that legitimately worry about the iPad slipping out of their hands during usage will feel comfortable knowing that the SofShell is ultra grippy. I felt like I had just covered the back of my iPad with fly paper, only without the fragrant poisonous chemicals. This iPad was not leaving my hand anytime soon, unless I wanted it to. The downside of course is that the case is bound to pick up dust, hairs, and other such specks.
SofShell sells its case for the iPad, iPad 2, and iPad 2 (for use with Smart Cover). They are all currently priced at $49.50 on SofShell's website.
