Review: Hard Candy Squish Skin iPad Case

The aptly-named Squish Skin iPad case from Hard Candy Cases is molded from silicone rubber and features air-filled chambers surrounding the edges and back of the iPad. You can see the structure of this flexible, soft case before it's placed on the iPad.

The head designer at Hard Candy says Squish Skin was modeled after a Wii remote case, which makes sense. The silicone ribbing on the interior of the case gives this product a similar feel, very grippy and jelly-like with plenty of cushioning around the edges.

Hard Candy Kickstand

Hard Candy joins the iPad stand movement with its own creation, the iPad Kickstand. Collapsible feet integrated into the lightweight polycarbonate body provide an optimum ergonomic typing angle when deployed. The case itself shields the iPad from bumps and scrapes without adding bulk. A snap-on lid provides extra screen protection in transit, and the Apple iPad Dock can be used without removing the Kickstand. Hard Candy offers the Kickstand in five colors for $59.95.

Hard Candy Squish Skin

Hard Candy breaks new ground with its iPad Squish Skin, a protective form-fitting silicone skin with a twist. Air-filled chambers and a silicone spine inside the Squish Skin gives the iPad great impact protection with an organic style. The case provides full access to all audio outputs and controls and provides a very grippable, functional shape around the exterior of the iPad. Hard Candy offers the Squish skin in six different colors for $39.95.

Review: Hard Candy Bubble Sleeve iPad Case

Hard Candy Cases is shipping a full line of iPad cases designed in California for unique looks and rugged protection. We decided to put the Hard Candy Bubble Sleeve ($49.95) through its paces and see how well the case complements and protects the iPad. The "Gold Green" color came with minimal packaging, note the tissue paper and tape protecting each oversized rubber zipper grip.

The two zippers are easily gripped and slide around three sides of the case perimeter to open and close the Bubble Sleeve like a book. The case exterior has a canvas-like texture with a subtle sheen and circular bubbles. Underneath the cloth there's a hard EVA-molded shell that provides a flexible, sturdy core.
