Patented Crumple Zone Corners use a unique internal structure and contoured shape to create maximum shock
absorption in the corners of the case, shielding the most vulnerable areas of the device from impact.
The Edge 360 for iPad 9.7-inch (5th Gen) is the ultimate pairing of protection and functionality. The case features 360-degree device protection, including a solid TPU base and integrated screen protector. The case uses impact-dispersing Crumple Zone™ Corner construction to protect vulnerable corners of the device and achieve maximum drop protection. The integrated non-skid stand allows the device to be easily used in landscape mode. The Edge 360 Case for iPad has been drop-tested from six feet, exceeding military standard MIL-STD-810G.
Our school district recently purchased nearly 10,000 Edge 360 cases for the 5th generation iPad. The Edge 360 model is perfect for our young children in and out of the classroom. Previous cases have quickly proven to be flawed in design or in the manufacturing process. Several years ago, our district was forced to return nearly 10,000 cases to a manufacturer due to a defect in design. So we were naturally very careful when selecting cases for the new 5th generation iPads. We are highly satisfied with the outcome. These are the right cases for our kids, and the reasonable price point makes the Edge 360 a very smart choice for schools.

The Edge 360 case has been very good. It really addresses many of the issues that I find with cases.
Camera cover - The case leaves the camera exposed all the time. This is a good thing. Honestly, I have never had a camera cover that I was happy with. They are a nuisance rather than a benefit. So don't add a cover, please. The stand is fantastic. It really allows you to use the iPad the way it was meant to be used. Easy in, easy out, inclined typing mode is rock solid and the stand-up mode that is two way adjustable is great. I have never used a portrait stand up mode even when it was available, so not having it is not a downer in any way shape or form for me. I love the fact that when the stand is open it is sealed behind the stand. No junk getting in there. As the person that cleans every iPad I get when it comes in, this is a huge plus. Some other cases let in dirt everywhere, but not this one. The screen cover is 90% there. It seals great from dirt, it has oversized coverage which I love because you can reach the corners of the screen without running into the edges of the cover. The material cleans nicely, but like most other non-glass covers the material is prone to show small rainbow hues the moment you get some fingerprint oil on them. And lastly, when you spray cleaner on the cover, cleaner gets under the cover around the fingerprint sensor. Not huge issues at all, and really I am not sure how you could get around the fingerprint scanner hole issue without creating other problems. Essentially any seal will create separation between the glass and the rest of the cover which would really stink. Drop protection is pretty good. The corner bumpers are winners once again. The raised frame around the outside distributes force well across the body of the iPad. A solid edge hit is scary, but given the minimal nature of the case, it is a fair trade-off. One that I am happy to make. Case weight / thickness - A+ rating. The only case I have had that I really can hold and read for hours with no fatigue what so ever. It makes other cases seem bulky. The clear main body of the case is great. A few more colors of the edge material would be nice. I am all about school pride, so having color selections of the edge material would be great. I would not change the clear to another color on the main body. Overall impressions are this is a fantastic case, I will be looking to use these cases when I replace the current ones we are using.
