Griffin FlexGrip for iPad- accessory review

This week I had a chance to look at the black FlexGrip case for the iPad by Griffin, available in black, blue, purple and white. The FlexGrip manages to protect and look good. It's made from silicon, but the slick kind. The case it self is not slippery, but rather it does not stick to surfaces. This is good if you place your iPad in a bag and want to access it easily but bad if you want it to grip on a surface.

I used the case for a couple of weeks putting it in and out of my backpack, laid it on tables, watched content on it, etc.  The only issue I had with the case is that the edge flashings do not grip the iPad's glass tightly. This is an issue for me as I seem to collect lint where ever I go. I found myself having to occasionally clean out the lint particles. Also, it is important to note that if you use the iPad dock like I do, it does not fit in the dock with the case on.

Ultimately I liked Griffin FlexGrip for iPad. Just be aware of the looser flashings and that it is the slip not sticky silicone.

The Griffin FlexGrip for iPad is currently available for $28.95 from the TiPb iPad accessory store.

Griffin FlexGrip for iPad- accessory review


How about some reviews on none slim iPad cases. These covers are lame and add no in consealment, holding stlye, viewing stands etc etc

I agree with Rudy. These reviews of non-useful
shell cases offer not much in the way of usefullnes. How many shells can you review? I said the same on Georgia's review.

Great review, Chad.
I am glad you mentioned the lint issue, because my current silicon case for the iPhone has the same problem.
