Accidentally Drop an iPad Out a Plane? Throw a MacBook Out a Two Story Window? No Problem with a G-Form Extreme Sleeve
Think you’ll ever be in a situation where your iPad needs to survive a drop from 1/10th of a mile up? Do you ever get so frustrated with your MacBook Pro that you want to toss it out of a two story window, but you don’t want it to actually break?
These are ridiculous scenarios and not survivable, right? Wrong. The new high-tech G-Form Extreme Sleeves for iPad and MacBooks do exactly that, and for the skeptics, the creators went about making videos to demonstrate how these cases allow electronics to absorb serious impacts.
The first video shows an iPad enclosed in a G-Form Extreme Sleeve being dropped from a light aircraft at 500′ and surviving. The second video shows a MacBook Pro 13″ wrapped in an Extreme Sleeve being thrown off a second story deck. Both survive without incident or damage. I’d say that’s pretty impressive.
Watch both of the videos below:

The videos are fun to watch and a bit sensational but the point is clear, if an iPad can survive a drop from 500′ and a MacBook Pro can get tossed 20′ off a second-story deck, they’ll easily survive a drop from a desk, in a backpack, or what other common fall situation the average person might find themselves in. To make the cases even more durable, they’re water resistant and backed by a lifetime warranty.
Interestingly, G-Form’s main products are padding and guards for extreme sports like mountain biking and skateboarding, but somewhere along the line someone had the bright idea of throwing a few elbow guards on an iPad and MacBook Pro and seeing what happened. Good call huh?
You can get the iPad G-Form Extreme Sleeve for $59.95 from their website now, and you can pre-order the MacBook Pro sleeve which is due to be released soon. The sleeve for the MacBook comes in a variety of sizes, 11″ for the Air, 13″, and 15″, and ranges in price from $69 to $79.95, and they say if you order the wrong size they’ll ship you the right size for free.
Now the next time you hear someone complain about not finding a good case for their Apple gear, tell them to check these out.
