Along with our popular Battersea case with full body protection, we're excited to introduce the new Brompton folio design, giving consumers access to premium tablet protection that matches their style.

Both cases include D3O technology, which provides shock and impact protection for a range of products. Gear4's version of D3O technology is blended with other materials to produce cases engineered to safeguard mobile devices.
