REVIEW – UAG SCOUT CASE FOR IPAD AIR
So we have a new case from you UAG for the iPad Air. The new case from you UAG is very very well-made, the best thing that I can say about it is the actual material that it’s made from is superior to anything that I’ve used before with the actual rubberized feel that the case provides it shows you that it’s not going to slip out of your hand.
When the case arrived it was presented in a nice clear plastic box the only problem was that I cut my finger and trying to get the cover out of the plastic case. That being said once the case was out in the open there was a polystyrene insert which was removed which showed the hexagon honeycomb like construction that the iPad, this is what provides the iPad a lot of protection if you drop it. There is a nice logo printed on the front of of the case in silver and also on the inside of the case in a slightly darker material that’s not too distracting.
The one aspect of design that I really like is the ruggedness that is presented it looks like it’s going to take a hit, this looks like it’s gonna bounce off the floor but it’s going to protect your iPad. With the front folding magnetic flap it just feels like when you drop or if you drop your iPad it’s is going to be okay so that investment you’ve made is not going to get scratched or damaged in any way which is absolutely fantastic from a product that you want to protect your iPad.
From a design point of view I have the black cover which is encased on the back with faux screws this looks very urban and looks very industrial it gives that level of protection to the eye and gives that reassurance that this is going to take hit without damaging the device.
In using the iPad case the only thing that I would say that you need a little extra pressure on the volume up and down buttons and you need to really get that click, I am sure it will loosen up over time and with more use.
The case is used more in a portfolio aspect so when you open the case up you’re presented with two different levels of tilt, this means that it’s perfectly adjustable for watching TV or perhaps doing some typing when travelling I certainly would intend to use this case on my trip to Australia for typing journal entries & for drawing with the paper by 53 app.
Since I’ve been out of work with my recent operation to my hand I’ve been forced more more to use my iPad as it small left and friendly than using a mouse and a keyboard as such I’ve been using the case from UAG a lot more than what I would normally do and again it’s really come into its own in that regard. By carrying the iPad around a lot more I’ve got to know how the iPad cover feels and this is a very good feeling case it feels like it really isn’t going to slip out of my hands as it has a great rubbery texture.
- Feather-light composite construction
- Impact resistant soft core
- Over sized tactile buttons
- Water resistant grip material.
- Easy access to touch screen and ports
- Smart cover and Frogskin Technology grip
- Meets military drop-test standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6)
4.8 from 5 stars for me, again a great present if dad had an iPad and needs a new cover.
