Very few cases offer true utility as well as nice style and design. The HandStand2 for iPad 2 does just that. The simple construction of the case allows you to easily attach it to your iPad 2--simply wrap the case around your iPad and you are ready to work.

The elastic hand band is tight enough to feel secure but not so tight that your fingers turn blue while using it. The rubber case holds your iPad 2 securely in place upside-down, while walking, and, of course, when actually using your iPad.

The HandStand2 also has a rotating base that allows users to easily rotate between landscape and portrait mode depending on the app they are using. If you're on the go and need to take notes, HandStand2 offers a great way to keep your iPad 2 secure while doing so, without losing any functionality.

HandStand2 also has a raised grip on its base that gives your iPad 2 just enough tilt when placed on a tabletop to make typing easy.

Overall, my experience with the HandStand2 has been extremely pleasant and any time I need to bring my iPad 2 on the move, I'll be using HandStand2 to protect it. The HandStand2 is designed and manufactured in the United States, is made from 100-percent recycled resin, and retails for $49.95.
