Kensington BlackBelt: Mastering the Art of Tablet Protection
The Kensington BlackBelt Series of rugged cases offers military-grade tablet
protection in three degrees to cover a variety of needs, so you can use the
iPad Air or iPad mini in rough environments without fear. Every model of
BlackBelt cases by Kensington features a tough, lightweight band that
surrounds the tablet and was designed to meet the U.S. military's MIL-STD-810
testing protocols for all-around defense against drops and scratches.

Safeguard your tablet with new Kensington BlackBelt 1^st Degree Rugged Cases —
each one uses a strong, cushioned layer of rubber offering reliable shock
absorption when the inevitable drops and bumps happen. The new Kensington
BlackBelt 2^nd Degree Rugged Cases also include a hand strap and built-in
stand. The existing Kensington BlackBelt 3^rd Degree Rugged Case offers
everything you could ask for, including a ClickSafe™ anchor.

Each new BlackBelt rugged case is available in Black, Plum and Red colors.
Because iPad's curves are particularly vulnerable to damage, the cases offer
extra thick corner protection. A raised bezel preserves the iPad screen, and
the case's included clear back protector provides additional insurance against
scratches. Even with all this protection, the 1^st and 2^nd degree cases
preserve access to all iPad Air or iPad mini ports, controls and cameras,
making charging and syncing easy. The 3^rd Degree case utilizes port covers to
keep out dust and debris.

Kensington SafeGrip: Ready for Any Adventure 
The Kensington SafeGrip Rugged Cases are designed to provide a first line of
defense for tablets used by children in the classroom environment. Kids will
be kids, and that means sensitive electronics are at risk for accidental
damage. SafeGrip preserves everything you love about your iPad while providing
strong, cushioned protection to keep your tablet safe. Kid-proof your iPad Air
with the new Kensington SafeGrip Rugged Carry Case and Stand built from
non-toxic materials that little ones can use, and with Kensington's
award-winning smart. safe. simple. design philosophy. 

"Experience all the productivity that the iPad enables for your business with
our BlackBelt Rugged Cases. These products, along with our SafeGrip™ Cases,
are tailored for tablets used in tough environments, so that you have peace of
mind knowing your iPad investment is safe during all your activities," said
Judy Barker, Senior Global Product Manager at Kensington.
