Digital Treasures announces Props Repel waterproof iPad folio case

With more and more iPads being used by workers in a variety of outdoor locations, waterproof cases for the ubiquitous tablet are starting to appear. Digital Treasures today announced the Props Repel waterproof folio case for iPad 4/3/2 (US$49.95), which appears at first glance to be an inexpensive way to keep your expensive device from drowning in a downpour.

The Props Repel is IPX8 certified to be submersible and completely waterproof to depths up to 33 feet, so if you decide that you want to use your iPad to take selfies while surfing, no problem. Want to shoot video while snorkeling in the Caribbean? Not a problem, as the triple zipper lock is going to keep your iPad high and dry.

Back on shore, the Props Repel serves as a nice two-position stand so you can watch the video you just shot of fighting off a shark attack. The case is available for order today; we'll have a full review soon.
