Cygnett TuffStuff Ultra-protect iPad Case

This weird looking case from Cygnett may not look that sexy but it does its job quite well, protecting your iPad from worst-case situations... a manoeuvrer we like to call, the iPad floor drop. Hopefully no one will ever accidentally drop their iPad on the floor but the technology behind its design is to add additional shock absorption should this happen. And before you ask, we did not test the iPad floor drop with our iPad but from its design, it does look safer than if your iPad doesn't have a case.

In terms of design, the Cygnett TuffStuff - Ultra-protective iPad case would not look out of place in an Adult Toy Store due to its weird textured grip not that I would know mind you... but hey, it just looks odd. The interior of the case uses internal ribbing that in theory will absorb the shock of a drop. I'm leaning to agree with Cygnett on this one because the material used is quite rubbery and their theory is quite sound. Apart from the accidental drop, the TuffStuff includes a screen protector and microfiber cleaning cloth.

The hardest part of the installation is trying to line up the screen protector and ensure that no bubbles are present when you lay on this thin sheet of plastic. This plastic is to protect your iPad from scratches, marks and grime and the microfiber cleaning cloth removes the muck before installing the protector and can be used later on to keep your screen clean.

Installing the iPad into the TuffStuff case is very simple as it just slides in, albeit quite snug. As mentioned earlier, the case has an added textured grip that's goal is to ensure that the user has as much grip as possible while using the iPad. Even though the iPad looks thoroughly cool without a case, it unfortunately has no grip features; hence the reason a case is so important.

With two years warranty and a variety of positive features (beside its look), the Cygnett TuffStuff - Ultra-protective iPad case is definitely the case to have if you have are prone to butterfingers or want to ensure that if an iPad floor drop did occur, its internal ribbed structure would ensure maximum shock absorption. Its been designed to protect your iPad from drops, bumps and scratches and still give the user access to all ports and controls which it does quite amicably but the appearance ain't that nice.
