The folks at Cooper Cases are apparently quite proud of this tablet folio case: After all, it’s described as both “Infinite” and “Universal” in its lofty name. And in a few aspects, Cooper’s pride may be justified. Unfortunately, too many generic features (including the look) detract from the overall product.
Cooper Belle Universal iPad/10" Tablet Sleeve in Red
Like candy, a fire engine, or sexy lip-gloss, we are pretty certain the red color of this tablet sleeve is what attracted you to check out this review. So while we have your attention… the Cooper Belle is a lightweight and trim design that can protect any iPad or 10" tablet against everyday wear and tear.
- Sleek design
- Beautiful color glitter
- Soft interior-lining for screen protection
- Simple design
- Exterior has the feel of cheap plastic
- No brand label for quality reassurance
Contrary to the shiny and slick appearance of the exterior, its polyurethane material has a sticky tactile grip that compliments the lightweight and trim design for comfortable hand-held transport. In addition to its scratch, stain and water-resistant exterior, there is a foam layer between the outer material and soft velour interior lining for added protection against bumps and minor accidental drops. So, feel free to strap your iPad 2 inside and get ready to experience confident, convenient and reliable portability.
- Glossy polyurethane exterior combine to keep it adequately protection against bumps and scratches
- Compatible with iPad 2, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Motorola Xoom, Sony Tablet S & Leader International Impression 10
- Soft interior-lining for good screen protection
The buckle-strap doesn't exactly allow for quick device removal and access, but I do appreciate the firm, tactile grip of the exterior for comfortable carrying.
If a dog mistakes this case for a fire hydrant, the exterior finish can repel liquids. While it does shield against bumps and scratches, we don’t recommend you use its shiny red aesthetic as a prop in a bullfight.
The stitching looks good enough to keep this case intact for quite some time.
You may not be crazy about its design and simple functional purpose, but you can certainly go crazy for its very low price of $9.95.
If the basics are what you seek, then we don’t see how you could go wrong with the very affordable Cooper Belle.
