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.
