Case-Mate has stripped down to the essentials with its "Barely There" case. This hard plastic shell brings a minimal and modern look to the iPad 2 tablet. The form-fitting case is ideal for someone who wants to maintain the thin tablet design while adding some a bit of extra protection and grip.

Minimalism is the name of the game with the Case-Mate "Barely There" protector shell. By going back to the drawing board, Case-Mate has come up with the bare essentials for giving your iPad 2 some extra protection and sleek modern style. With "Barely There" the back of the iPad 2 is covered in an impact resistant, one-piece hard case coating.

The simple shell design is in line with the simple and sleek Apple style so you don’t have to worry about losing that slim modern look. When Case-Mate says "barely there" they really mean it — you hardly notice it when you see the iPad 2 lying on the table. But its smooth, slightly rubbery grip is instantly noticeable. You get the choice between Pink or Black protectors, and both are barely noticeable!


  • Slim profile design
  • Provides some extra grip

          Overall: OKAY

          The Barely There is a good choice because of its simplicity. A best case scenario for the iPad user in search of minimalist back protector that provides grip, protection and style in a nice slim fit.
