The iPad currently holds more than 70% of the consumer market which means that if you own a tablet computer, you probably have one. This is why Pelican Products has introduced the Pelican i1075 HardBack case.

Designed as watertight / crush-resistant armour for the iPad and iPad 2, the case was developed in a unique partnership between Pelican and BMW Designworks (a division of BMW).

Dinis Jablonski, director of product management, said: "We are pleased to have combined BMW’s amazing design know-how with our 30 years of experience to produce a tough and innovative way to transport and protect this amazing device."

Fitting in most soft bags, the case features a special molded foam system designed to protect and secure the iPad or iPad 2, along with an Apple Bluetooth wireless keyboard, a power adapter, ear buds and download cables. The foam system also acts as an easel for the device in either horizontal or vertical positions so the user can work straight out of the case.

The Pelican i1075 is drop tested from heights of up to 3ft and can survive the rigors of travel because it has a high-impact, heat and chemically resistant polymer shell that will stand up to some of the harshest conditions known to man.

In addition to its virtually indestructible construction, it features a strong, easy-snap, polymer latch to ensure the case stays closed in rough situations and an o-ring seal that ensures that it stays watertight in up to three feet of water. The case has a automatic pressure equalisation valve to keep moisture out and make it easier to open the case at any altitude.

Pelican i1075 features a sturdy, removable nylon shoulder strap so travellers can keep a firm hold on their gear. The Pelican 1075 HardBack is also available with either an anti-scratch foam interior or Pick N Pluck foam.

Both the i1075 and 1075 are part of the Pelican HardBack Series which is designed to protect and secure portable electronics from 7in and 10in tablets to 14in and 15in laptops. Like all Pelican products they are backed by a legendary guarantee of excellence.
