    I like to take my iPad camping with me, and to work with me once in a while, when I know I’m going to have a slow day. Well with the cases of the new iPad bending after be transported in a backpack (not looking to debate that here), I thought maybe I should get something better than just a backpack to carry it in. So I picked up a pelican case from amazon. $55 but ultimate piece of mind. iPad fits like a glove. Think I ordered one a little to big for my 11”, but have plenty of room for the charger, the cord, and some extra padding. The way it worked out, removing enough of the squares to fit the iPad without forcing it in, left some room for the iPad to wiggle, so I cut one of the removed squares into quarters and used them as a bumper, 2 in the sides, and 1 for the top. No movement now, except it will flop out of place when the pelican case is held vertical, but with all the padding, it shouldn’t be a problem. Used a hot glue gun to attach the bumpers, and to glue down the foam to the bottom foam, and to the sides of the pelican case so that it stays put. Have to clean up the extra glue a little. But it looks like it will work out. Made a make shift handle out of paracord, as I didn’t like the included shoulder strap. Even thought the case is bigger, it still slides easily in and out of my back pack.

    Pretty cool concept. Ultimate protection! It is pretty great if you will be transporting it a lot and its need that extra care.

    It will be transported a lot, which is why I went that route.. I’m on day 2 of using it now, and have to say I honestly happy with it. I’m worry free now when transporting it. Yesterday when I took it to work, I transported it in the case, and put the case in my back pack.. barely fit but it fit. Today I left the back pack at home, and just took the case. While this case is a little big for what I needed, as figuring out the size using reviews and dimensions was a pain (dimensions of the next smaller size down said it would work, reviews claimed 10.5” wouldn’t fit), it’s still not a pain to carry.
