Not getting enough protection from the Apple Smart Cover? Make the easy switch to this hybrid design by SwitchEasy, which consists of a polycarbonate shell and padded canvas material that combine to give your iPad 2 / iPad 3 the full-body protection it needs. You’ll lose an angle for typing, but will gain two extra angles for browsing and viewing, as well as retain clear access to all of your device’s features and functions.

The Canvas folio case incorporates a polycarbonate shell and soft padded canvas overlay cover with rich microfiber interior, all combined to provide the iPad full-body protection against bumps, dings, shocks, scratches, and a few minor accidental drops in between. The original model was designed with cover latch that clipped on to the side of the rear-shell, an action that did not allow for easy opening/closing of the case. The new “Canvas” has a self-adhesive cover that functions more swiftly, and I also applaud SwitchEasy for not forgetting to include a sleep/wake magnet this time around. The left side of the shell is attached to the canvas overlay by a strip of Velcro. So to set up the integrated stand feature, simply detach it from this mechanism by pulling-up and then fold the shell over to rest in one of three groves on the inside of the cover. The groves are quite deep in order to keep the device stable for browsing and viewing in landscape format. Our test showed the tablet was a tad bouncy when pressing the screen, however this probably won't be much of an issue once the binding loosens with age.


  • Nice padded cover
  • Solid viewing stand
  • Included pack-ins

            Overall: GREAT

            Who says being fashionably late never pays-off? You have arrived to the tablet case market just in time to get your hands on the new and improved “Canvas”, which offers the same reliable protection as the original, but now functions even better and more smoothly.
