The team at Loop Attachment in Chicago has been busy designing even more fun protective cases for Apple products, and the latest thing to roll out of the labs is the Mummy for the iPad (US$40). What's cool about this silicone sleeve is that it not only mirrors the easily gripped Mummy design for iPhone and offers a nice surrounding sleeve for protection, but that it also works with Apple's Smart Cover to keep your device protected all around.
The Mummy comes in a rainbow of colors, including black, blue, graphite, red, teal and white. The silicone sleeve is easy to install and remove, and provides a comfortable and reliable grip. They're not heavy at all -- 5.3 ounces -- and have openings in all the right places as well as "bump" type pass-through switches where applicable. It will work with all of the iPads except the original model and whatever Apple happens to release next week...
I happen to use a keyboard case with my current iPad, but have a pair of Smart Covers from previous iPads. What's fun about the Mummy sleeve is that I can choose a color to protect the iPad -- like teal -- and then slap a totally different color of Smart Cover on top for a nice two-tone effect (see slideshow below). There are magnets for holding the cover into place when it is folded back out of the way.
The price of the Mummy is extremely reasonable, so if you wanted to get two (or more) for the sake of changing colors daily, you could afford to do so.
If you're looking for fun and colorful protection for your iPad, look no further than Loop Attachment's Mummy for iPad. It's inexpensive, durable and works with your Smart Cover. What else could you ask for?
