Incipio 1337

Designed, apparently, for gamers, the 1337 is thicker than your average silicone skin, so it fits the iPad better. On the back, at the corners, are four inch-thick L-shaped grips to better help you hold onto your iPad while flinging angry birds or steering round the racetrack. It didn't help my N.O.V.A performance any, and it's not a case you'd want if you take your iPad out and about, but there's no doubt it makes for a good grip. Comes with a separate screen cover sheet.

Proporta Mizu Shell

Standard semi-rigid translucent skin, the Mizu shell comes in a range of colours. It fits well too, but then so do all the others of its ilk I've reviewed here.
