Cooper Chassis Apple iPad Air Silicon Shell review


With the release of the snazzy new Apple iPad Air tablets, the tablet cases specifically designed for the immediately popular product were sure to follow. Here’s an early entry from tablet accessory specialists Cooper Cases, the Apple iPad Air tablet shell. The Chassis is noteworthy for its availability in both flexible and inflexible plastic material – think of them as softwear and hardwear for the iPad Air.

Editor's Rating 

Cooper Cases’ iPad Air tablet shell seems so perfect for the latest slick design from Apple that this case could pass for an officially-licensed product. Starting with the Chassis' appearance itself: Whether in hard or soft plastic format, the material is transparent. The range of colors available utterly reminds the user of those splashes of color Apple has included on numerous products since the days when the PC was king. Since silicon is involved, the iPad Air owner will know what to expect there as well, namely no-frills back protection that makes for convenient insertion/removal of the tablet and easy cleaning. While the soft version feels a bit more comfortable to grip, the thinness and flexibility of the material around the cutouts is somewhat worrisome in this model. Best not test the soft version *too* much. As light as the device it carries and as colorful as Apple product can be, the Cooper Chassis iPad Air Tablet Shell compliments the new trend-setting device simply beautifully – plus you get that budget price.


  • Available in a range of vibrant colors
  • Appropriately lightweight
  • Super easy insertion/removal

            Overall: OKAY

            The Cooper Chassis tablet shell is designed perfectly to Apple iPad Air specs with all the advantages of a company-made product at a fraction of the price – a true best-case scenario for owners of the cutting-edge tablet. Do the Apple people know about this?
