The Just Air Case does exactly as advertised. My iPad2 fit snugly inside and provided me with a sense of safety that if I dropped it, all mechanical parts would continue to work. There’s plenty of padding on all sides–including the zippered top. I was a bit worried when I ordered the Just Air because I always use my iPad with a Snugg around it. I’m a teacher and walk around my classroom while using the iPad. The Snugg has a handhold so I can poke the screen one-handed (maybe link to my desktop) or perch it for video viewing. I also allow students to use it–3rd grade and up–so I want that extra protection from scratches or bumps. I worried the snugged iPad wouldn’t fit inside the Just Air Case, but I needn’t have. In fact, if you don’t have this sort of extra case, the iPad is a bit loose inside the Just Air. No worries, though, because it is well padded.
The case has no extra pockets or slots, though you could carry a credit card or license inside–maybe a phone if you didn’t worry about pocket dialing. You might even fit a portable keyboard, though I didn’t try that. It is not designed to protect the iPad during use (there are no slots for the screen, power buttons, etc., like other more expensive cases have). Overall, a good value for the money.
