STM Bags Grip 2 Apple iPad Air Folio review

 

This STM Bags tablet case may set a new standard in hard cases for the new Apple iPad Air. The Grip 2's hard shell protection defends the iPad Air brilliantly while providing a nice hand feel. And though a few extra ounces may be added, the trim fit of the Grip 2 folio is frankly amazing.

Editor's Rating 

Wow, the competition had better be ready for the STM Grip 2 Folio. Not only is this folio case perfectly suited to defend the iPad Air with its impact-resistant polycarbonate shell, the sleekness and feel put this one straight to the head of the class.

There’s very little to critique in the STM Grip 2 folio. Beginning with the textured exterior, the Grip 2 is love at first feel – and users only get an added bonus of tough, extreme protection. With such impact-resistant material, the thinness and light weight of this case are truly incredible.

The built-in kickstand closes up nicely at the back and when unfolded provides a highly notable solid base for viewing. The truly finicky might notice that pulling the stand out isn’t exactly the easiest – you’ll have to use those fingernails – but this is a small sacrifice for a stand that will provide a few angles and take serious jostling.

Finally, iPad Air users will find themselves catered to in the STM Grip 2 folio thanks to the precise cutouts (even for the speaker) and the auto sleep/wake function. Imagining a better choice in quality defense and tote-ability for the iPad Air is indeed something of a stretch.
