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 360Carry Case is the ultimate pairing of protection and functionality. The Edge Carry Case features a co-molded design that uses both rigid and tactile materials, a tough built-in kickstand for viewing and typing, and a rugged rotating handle. The case uses a screw-down design and impact-dispersing corner construction to achieve maximum drop protection of up to 6 feet.

The Edge™ Carry Case has a ton of features that make it perfect for any age student!
First, the clear overlay screen is very responsive to the touch, whether tapping with a finger or drawing with a stylus. (I don't have the newest iPad 9.7" with Apple Pencil support but I set the clear overlay from the Edge™ Carry Case on the screen of my 10.5" iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil worked great!)
Secondly, the case is very protective, with no buttons showing except the home button, but the built-in rubber buttons for volume and up/down and turning the device on/off are well-crafted and work great! The headphone port is easily accessible and the speaker cut-out at the bottom of the case lets the sound out well.
Thirdly, the kickstand feature on the back folds flat into a recessed area on the back of the case, and does not add any bulk. When folded in, it will not get caught on anything when being put in or taken out of a backpack.
Fourth, and a wonderful feature, is the built-in handle on the side of the Edge™ Carry Case. When carrying the iPad by the handle on the case, whether the student is in kindergarten or 12th grade, the iPad is secure and should avoid the drops that occur in schools. The Brenthaven Edge™ Carry Case is also drop tested to protect the iPad against falls from up to six feet!
The handle serves another purpose, too. When students are using their iPad in the field, when in front of the class sharing a presentation, or are reading their textbook on the bus ride home, by putting one hand's fingers through the handle, it allows them to have a secure grip on their device.
