Gripster Case For iPad Mini Lives Up to Its Name



Native Union wasn’t kidding around when it chose the name “Gripster” – this thing can be gripped and grabbed any way you like. Hell, even a Dolphin could get a purchase on this thing with its slippery flippers. The case, now available for the iPad mini, had a swiveling hand loop, a kickstand/carrying handle and a Smart Cover that folds up to add yet another handle.


The ABS shell has a spinning elastic strap on the back which you can set to any of eight lockable positions for happy holding. Surrounding this swiveling turret is the handle, which flips out to form a kickstand or be used as an actual carrying handle, turning your iPad into a kind of mini attache case.

And finally, the magnetic cover has eight folds which form a thick handle along one edge of the mini when folded. I attempt this trick with my regular Smart Cover, but it never really works.

What’s more, the prices aren’t crazy. You can grab the plastic version for $60 and the leather one for $100.
