I (finally!) updated my site over the weekend and added my most recent iPad case review but hadn’t pointed it out here in my blog. The latest subject of my geeky scrutiny is the Quirky Cloak case for the iPad. You might recall that I did a video overview of this case when I first received it, and then I put it through its paces for the next couple of weeks to fully test it out to see how well it worked. And I’ll admit that I was completely relieved to finally be able to remove it from my iPad after that period.
I think the Cloak case is great in concept – it’s sturdy and protective and has some great built-in stand features. But it weighs a ton, nearly doubling the weight of the iPad itself. And it blocks the ambient light sensor, which is another significant negative for me.
The Cloak is currently on sale on Quirky’s site for $49.99, down from $54.99. If you’re looking for a very robust and protective case, the Cloak could still be a good choice for you even though it wasn’t for me. You can read my full written review of it here and see my video overview of it here.
