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.
The Flak Jacket laptop case provides excellent protection to iPads, Chromebooks, Macbooks and other tablets and laptops and can easily be carried by students of all ages — it’s no bigger than a notebook or binder and can be slipped into backpacks and bags for transport to and from school. With three convenient sizes, this case protects devices — including iPads and laptops like Chromebooks and Macbook Airs — that are 11 inches, 13 inches and 15 inches in size.
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.
Though much of Higher Ground's gear is designed for couch surfing, you won't find neoprene here. The soft, spongy material is great for wet suits however neoprene is less desirable when it comes to drop or shock protection for your laptop. The Flak Jacket's polyurethane foam provides superior protection.
The Flak Jacket's shock-absorbing foam and corrugated plastic stiffeners deliver protective armor for your laptop in a slick, understated design. Far superior to neoprene, the low resilience polyurethane foam is better for the environment and safer for your device in case of accidental bumps or drops.
Don’t let your laptop or tablet leave the house without its jacket.

Equipping your school's laptops with cases reduces the likelihood of damage, theft, student downtime and repair expenses. Higher Ground produces high-quality, functional solutions to keep school laptops safe and ready to work anytime, anyplace.
Higher Ground began in 2002 when a college professor and his former student foresaw the impending laptop boom and recognized that sooner or later, most students would be learning from some sort of technology. When their predictions came true and laptops began appearing more commonly in curricula, they produced the innovative Laptrap. This durable laptop case changed the industry and inspired many imitators, but no one could quite match the level of creativity and design. 17 years later, Higher Ground continues to understand the changing needs of educational institutions.
When you purchase a laptop case from Higher Ground, you partner with a company dedicated to improving education.
Never compromising on our high standards in quality, design, or customer service allows Higher Ground products to remain cutting-edge.
Some schools choose to purchase consumer market solutions. While this decision may appear financially attractive, it typically costs schools more money in the long term. Lack of quality and attention to detail in the materials and manufacturing of these cases can lead not only to damaged devices but cases that wear quickly, often with little or no warranty. Higher Ground is proud to offer an industry-leading lifetime warranty for years of protection.
Maintaining a collection of laptops can become expensive. Theft, accidents and neglect significantly impact the overall cost of maintenance. By keeping laptops concealed and cushioned in Higher Ground's durable laptop cases, you will significantly reduce the frequency of these unfortunate events. Browse our selection to find the best combination of features for your specific scenario:
An eight-year-old student has different needs than a 17-year-old, which is why Higher Ground offers a range of options such as laptop bumper cases for kids or the work-in laptop case. Every product meets the same level of quality and design. Higher Ground can also design custom solutions tailored to your budget and needs.
