Our Rating


Looking for a lightweight case for your iPad that provides protection, portability, handles and is made of non-toxic materials safe for children?  Meet Gripcase and GripBase  by Gripcase USA this is a protective, lightweight case for your iPad or iPad Mini.  This case allows you to securely click in your iPad using the snug edges to hold it in while providing full access to your ports and allowing you to hold the iPad either via the handles or place it in a secure stand.  The case is made with Eva Foam and is one of the most lightweight and durable cases that I have tested on my iPad.

I performed a drop test on this case with my iPad 2 and it passed with flying colors.  I dropped the iPad from four feet high and it landed safely. I would like to see a screen protector as I do worry that if the iPad lands face down or on it’s back (which mine did not during drop tests) that it could crack the screen or the back.  When I did the drop test it landed on the corner versus the back or the front.

I loved how easy it was to clean the outside of the case with a Clorox wipe (just the case not the iPad) to ensure no germs were passed around but the case by nature is mildew and mold resistant due to the foam.  The case comes in fun colors and the stand makes it easy for you to place your iPad in viewing position to watch a movie, play with an app or just use it!  We preferred to use it without the stand most of the time unless we were watching a movie.

I would also love to see an outer case or bag that you could use with the Gripcase on the Go.  The handles on this case meant it did not fit in my traditional outer cases so I had to improvise a bit and because of that I worried about scratches on the iPad’s screen.  Other than that – I really couldn’t make any other suggestions!

This is a great case if you have a child who uses your iPad and likes to carry it around like my son does.  I feel confident the case will stand up to almost anything  especially if my son year old has anything to do with it.  Great case to protect your iPad from damage, drops both accidental and not so accidental), lightweight and super easy to install.  Came through with flying colors!

Available for purchase at GripCase,  and other retailers.
