The Hive for iPad 2 has a unique honeycomb design that provides shock-absorbing protection without the added bulk. The raised honeycomb pattern also allows for increased grip when surfing the web or gaming. The dermaSHOT silicone material in the Hive Case has a revolutionary anti-static coating that prevents the silicone from becoming sticky. Smooth and sleek to the touch, the Hive will grip your iPad but won't pick up excess lint. The Hive's ergonomically-designed rear of the case provides a tactile grip that is precision-molded to fit easily in the hands. Never fear of having your iPad slip out of your case with this hand-molded design.
