Incipio Kickstand for iPad - accessory review

If you're looking for a durable standing case for your iPad, the Incipio Kickstand case may be for you. It is made of rip-stop nylon on the outside and lined with microsuede on the inside.

The Incipio Kickstand is designed with different panels so that they can fold into a triangle, converting the case to stand. Since the inside is made out of microsuede, it has plenty of friction to keep the iPad standing without special notches, hooks, or flaps to keep it in place. Unfortunately, there is only one angle you have the iPad stand at. This fixed angle keeps the iPad standing tall, perfect for setting on a desk and watching movies. If using the iPad on your lap, you will not want to have it set up as kickstand because the angle is too awkward.

Not only is the microsuede great for providing necessary friction, but it's also very soft and at no risk of scratching your precious iPad. Also, the inside of the middle panel has a pocket that is great for holding items such as envelopes, notes, and business cards. Lastly, the Incipio Kickstand has a magnetic closure which allows it to be free of flaps or fancy closures.

The Incipio Kickstand for iPad is available in the TiPb iPad accessory store in three colors: black, light gray, and khaki/tan. If you're looking for a nice standing case that also offers some good protection, I recommending checking this one out.


  • Durable outside with soft inside

Incipio Kickstand for iPad - accessory review


Almost bought it but I don't like how the corners are exposed on this case or how thick it is. Seems to be a fairly good idea though the lack of shallow angles is pretty limiting. On the lighter colors some reviewers on amazon are saying they get dirty easy, make sense as it is fabric but I have no idea how you would clean it.
For others interested in this type of case I would recommend they search amazon for "AYL Slim Genuine Leather Case Folio with 4-in-1 built-in Stand" as that case is basically the same idea with a leather like outer surface that can be wiped off plus it will do shallow angles no problem.

Hey Leanna, a nice and teksavvy girl as you really should get a better camera :)
Thanks for this review!

Great review Leanna! Something to keep in mind when I finally get an iPad. Maybe after the 2.0 version is released.

There is noticeably any bunch so that you can realize with this. My partner and i feel you've made certain decent factors inside includes additionally.
