Advanced, Lightweight Armor for Your Laptop
The Flak Jacket laptop case is advanced, lightweight armor for your laptop. You won't find neoprene sleeves here. Neoprene may feel good and spongy to the touch, but its shock protection is weak. The Flak Jacket combines low resilience, highly shock-absorbing foam with corrugated plastic stiffeners to deliver complete protection in a slim, lightweight laptop case design. Polyurethane foam is more environmentally friendly than neoprene and in case of an accidental slip, it’s friendlier to your laptop as well. Plus, the stiff shell means this laptop case can double as a lapdesk when needed to protect your skin from the heat of the device.

Once your laptop is removed, you may use the reinforced case as a stable lap desk of your computer, helping keep some of the excess heat from reaching your skin.

Not long after tablets became popular recreational devices, they began appearing as effective learning tools in schools. If your school uses tablets or iPads, consider purchasing Higher Ground's protective tablet covers to safeguard your investment.
Since 2002, Higher Ground has manufactured high-quality covers for education technology. Founded by a college educator and his former student, Higher Ground gives schools and students peace of mind about technology in the classroom.
Your school deserves cases that deliver on the protection and functionality they guarantee. When you choose Higher Ground, your devices will be protected with quality, market-leading solutions. Each product receives meticulous testing to ensure peak performance along with Higher Ground's uncompromised standards in service and manufacturing. If your device requires a custom fit or solution, Higher Ground can help with that, too.
Educational tablets, particularly iPads, can represent a significant investment, making protection essential. Obtaining durable tablet cases should be the first step in safeguarding your investment.
Many of today's tablets feature thinner profiles and more glass, increasing the risk of damage. This risk grows when products are in the hands of small children. Repairing tablets take time and money that schools or students can't always afford to lose. Higher Ground covers help reduce the chances of encountering these frustrations.
All Higher Ground cases meet the same high standard for shock absorption with TPU construction and edges that go well beyond the device's, ensuring incredible drop-protection. Some models include a built-in stand for easier viewing and typing, which is particularly useful for children in earlier grades.
Higher Ground's products come with a raised bevel, which sits slightly above the glass screen to cushion it in the event of a face-first drop. These protective tablet covers are specially made with sound channels that redirect and amplify audio from the sides to the front, where the sounds belong.
What really sets Higher Ground's PROTEx cases apart is how incredibly easy they are to hold and comfortable they feel in the hand. PROTEx ergonomic cases are equipped with a comfortable, silicone X-strap on the back, giving both educators and students a convenient way to hold and operate the tablet in a worry-free way.
Higher Ground would be proud to equip your devices with the protection you deserve. When you reach out to our customer service team, you will work with helpful individuals who will answer your questions and assist you in finding the perfect solution for your school or classroom needs.
