Best iPad Cover
This is the best iPad tactical cover that I have seen on the market and the price is very fair in comparison with other cases sold for iPad.
This cover provides protection from drops, moisture and provides cover and concealment for the iPad from people looking for them in common style format cases such as the portfolio leather case. This case also provides enough room to store the power adaptor and syncing cable.
In my work environment we are required to carry iPads to many different locations providing IT support, training and meetings. Some of my coworkers have had their company issued iPad stolen from them when left unattained and damaged when dropped on hard surfaces and damage has occurred when using the standard low profile cases.
The bottom line is if you want maximum protection and good functionally for your iPad in personal, educational, business and government environments this case will work well for you.
I have used the Tactical iPad Cover from Flying Circle for just over a month now. Overall, I am marginally satisfied with it. The case functions as advertised and has a ton of features built into it. I'm a pilot so I got the case partially for the leg strap. While the leg strap is functional it is not quite as user friendly as one designed secifically to be used for flight. Having the opening for the camera is handy as the back camera can be used without removing the iPad from the case. I used the hand straps multiple times when briefing a meeting from my iPad. Many viewing angles are available which adds functionality for multiple uses. Unfortunately, there were two things I found to be less than satisfactory. First, the Velcro all over the outside of the case sticks to everything. I am in the Army so I wear a uniform that has Velcro all over it - prying the iPad away from ones body is both annoying and at times embarrassing. Velcro is a minor issue, the other issue I had was a little more serious. Even though I did not keep anything other than the leg strap and the screen cleaning cloth in the zipper pouch, I still ended up with multiple marks in my screen. Not on the screen protector and not on the screen but under the glass. There are now dozens of small white marks that, as best I can tell, are in the LCD itself. It seems that, once the viewing hood is pull out of the case (to make it reasonably slim) the bulk of the pouch hits the screen when it is closed. Needless to say, a protective case that actually damages the iPad is counterproductive. I liked the case and its multitude of features. Sadly, I am now back in the market for a case that is both functional and will protect my device.
I purchased this case three weeks ago and have mixed views on it. I work in a very dusty and abrasive environment, so a durable, very protective case is what I need. This case gets me almost there, but not quite.
I found the same issue with marks being left by the right side compartment, and I ended up having to place the removable pocket in the middle with nothing in it as a sort of protector. I then noticed that the vinyl teeth of the zipper were leaving marks on the screen as well. Luckily, none of them appear permanent, and I was able to buff them all out with a soft cloth.
From what I see, the way this is designed, there is little tolerance for placing anything in the pockets without marking up the ipad. When I first purchased it, I expected the center pocket to be able to be used for my stylus and other items. Unfortunately, anything that is placed in the center pocket is pushed down into the ipad from the right pocket which seems to have no other purpose than to store the leg strap. I was seriously concerned that I would crack my screen if I placed anything in either pocket.
While I like the idea, and it does, in fact, look sharp and has a lot of potential, it needs some modifications to be top notch. First of all, a durable built in screen protector would be a must, in my book. Make the leg strap thing removable, and reengineer the right pocket so that it can be functional without putting any pressure on the ipad's screen. Fianlly, either remove the center pocket, or make it so that it can be used without scratching the cover.
Hope to see a V2.0 in the future, but for now, it will have to sit on the shelf while I find a more usable cover.
Love it - One Minor Flaw
Overall I love the case. The thought put into the case is outstanding, with one minor exception. The alctual holder of the iPad is poor design. The weather white case that used with the iPad into leave the corners unprotected. With the amount of thought put into this case i would love to see better design and protection for the actual iPad. Overall it's worth the money, but this defect maybe a deal breaker for some.
Out of the box this is an awesome piece of kit. I can easily see time, effort, and forethought concerning how people actually use their iPad went into this product. The 30-degree stand is amazingly sturdy, the Ipad fits snugly into its place and with a sense of security against falling out that few other covers I have used can match. One thing I hope your PR team begins touting is how the hook and loop works to secure the cover flap to the back of the case when open. My biggest gripe concerning any ipad cover is that the flap must be held while holding the iPad or else it just dangles. No so with this guy. Also, thank you for including hook and loop to attach when the case is in "tee-pee" mode (for lack of a better term).
This is the best bag around I can't believe the versatility of it. I was using the otterbox defender but after seeing this and all it did. I ditched the otterbox and got the iPad tactical style bag. It takes a beating from my kids it will strap to the back of the head rest so I keep my sanity on long trips. If I knew this case was out there when I got my iPad it would have been the first one I got. I'm glad I found it. If you doubt it's versatility trust me this thing does it all.
Love this Case
I absolutely love this case. I've had this case for nearly two years since I was waiting for the ACU digital camo to come out. This is the last case I've purchased since then. Now I only wish Flying Circle Bags can make one for the IPad Air!!!!
My iPad cover just finished a combat tour with me in Parwan Province, Afghanistan. It weathered the dust, sand, snow and rain over my 12 month deployment. My iPad is in the same condition as I bought it thanks to this case. I have photos to prove it. I highly recommend this for purchase whether your in a combat zone or not. Hooooooah!
Needs Corner Protection
This versatile and durable product requires more SOLID CORNER PROTECTION for the ipad. This will make it even more tactical.
Absolutely love it.
I take my IPAD to the field with me every time I go out and I dont have to worry about it getting broken in my ruck sack if it gets tossed around or leaned against. More features than I can use and it's nice having the space for my nametape and rank... Love it!
