Advanced, Lightweight Armor for Your Laptop
The Flak Jacket laptop case is advanced, lightweight armor for your laptop. You won't find neoprene sleeves here. Neoprene may feel good and spongy to the touch, but its shock protection is weak. The Flak Jacket combines low resilience, highly shock-absorbing foam with corrugated plastic stiffeners to deliver complete protection in a slim, lightweight laptop case design. Polyurethane foam is more environmentally friendly than neoprene and in case of an accidental slip, it’s friendlier to your laptop as well. Plus, the stiff shell means this laptop case can double as a lapdesk when needed to protect your skin from the heat of the device.
The Flak Jacket laptop case provides excellent protection to iPads, Chromebooks, Macbooks and other tablets and laptops and can easily be carried by students of all ages — it’s no bigger than a notebook or binder and can be slipped into backpacks and bags for transport to and from school. With three convenient sizes, this case protects devices — including iPads and laptops like Chromebooks and Macbook Airs — that are 11 inches, 13 inches and 15 inches in size.
Once your laptop is removed, you may use the reinforced case as a stable lap desk of your computer, helping keep some of the excess heat from reaching your skin.
Though much of Higher Ground's gear is designed for couch surfing, you won't find neoprene here. The soft, spongy material is great for wet suits however neoprene is less desirable when it comes to drop or shock protection for your laptop. The Flak Jacket's polyurethane foam provides superior protection.
The Flak Jacket's shock-absorbing foam and corrugated plastic stiffeners deliver protective armor for your laptop in a slick, understated design. Far superior to neoprene, the low resilience polyurethane foam is better for the environment and safer for your device in case of accidental bumps or drops.
Don’t let your laptop or tablet leave the house without its jacket.

The popularity of the iPad in today's K-12 schools creates the need for reliable, protective solutions. Students do not always treat their devices with care, which can lead to significant repair and replacement costs for school districts. Higher Ground offers an assortment of high-quality iPad cases for students that will safeguard your investment in technology and reduce your district's expenses.
Higher Ground is a design-based company that develops protective solutions strictly for the education market. Its founders are a college educator and his former student, both of whom bring a wealth of firsthand experience to the design process. All products consist of superior materials and benefit from more than 16 years of manufacturing expertise. They also undergo meticulous testing to ensure they can withstand the drops and mishandling that come with student use.
Higher Ground iPad cases for education do more than protect technology. They also provide enhanced accessibility and functionality that make devices easier to use. Consequently, HG products make a valuable contribution to the learning process.
iPads are light and easy to handle — an essential benefit for younger students due to their smaller hands. However, the thinner design and lightweight construction increase the devices' vulnerability. A durable iPad case for schools from Higher Ground offers a cost-effective solution. By cushioning the fall, it can reduce glass breakage by as much as 85-90 percent. A protective iPad case for schools will also minimize learning disruptions resulting from broken devices.
Higher Ground's PROTEx line of iPad cases for education are designed to be the easiest iPad cases to hold. The PROTEx includes a specially designed silicone X-strap on the back that ensures a comfortable, secure grip in a horizontal or vertical orientation. Because the strap practically holds your hand for you, it makes it almost impossible to drop. The ergonomic, bumper perimeter is also easier to grip for hands of all sizes.
Solid, TPU construction makes a PROTEx the perfect iPad bumper case for kids. The lightweight yet rugged thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) material absorbs shock and offers excellent resistance to wear and tear. A raised bevel on the screen side provides breakage protection during face-first drops. All models include sound channels that redirect audio to the front for an improved listening experience. PROTEx is offered in two configurations based on your needs. One as a folio-style with cover and stand and the other without.
As with all Higher Ground products, these protective iPad cases for schools come with a lifetime warranty for your protection and peace of mind. The 30-day return policy allows for risk-free purchasing, while the innovative "1/2 price replacement program" makes case upgrades extremely affordable.
The Higher Ground team includes courteous, professional customer service representatives who will be happy to assist you. They'll answer all your questions and provide additional product information as needed. Feel free to contact us to receive product samples and a no-obligation quote for any of our iPad cases for students.
