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.

Administrators and teachers in school districts that use tablets as learning tools understand how vulnerable these devices are in the hands of their students. A rugged tablet sleeve from Higher Ground will safeguard your valuable technology and protect your investment. These well-designed, expertly crafted sleeves will give you one less thing to worry about — and help to lower your technology costs.
Higher Ground has been designing and manufacturing industry-best covers for education technology since 2003. These tablet sleeves for students meet the highest standards for quality and craftsmanship. They're also designed specifically for students and school environments.
The company is rooted in the education industry. Founded by a college educator and his former student, Higher Ground understands the unique protection challenges that school districts face.
The use of high-quality materials combined with the company's uncompromising manufacturing standards ensures a market-leading solution that you can trust. All Higher Ground protective tablet sleeves undergo meticulous testing to deliver peak performance and maximum reliability.
Educational tablets and iPads represent a significant investment for any K-12 school district. A protective tablet sleeve can maximize your ROI by helping to prevent the need for expensive repairs and replacements. They will serve as your first line of defense against drops and slips.
A Higher Ground tablet sleeve for education offers an effective solution for safeguarding today's thinner devices that contain more glass. Many schools experience an 85 to 90 percent reduction in glass breakage when using these sleeves. Insurance companies also recognize this benefit — many offer a premium discount to districts that use approved tablet protection products.
The tablet sleeves' rugged designs feature edges that extend well beyond those of the device it protects. This feature significantly reduces damage if the device is dropped. There's also a raised bevel that rests slightly above the glass screen to safeguard against face-first drops.
The EVA construction consists of the same foam found in many running shoes and athletic pads — the same technology that protects your feet against heavy impact also keeps your tablets from breaking.
Higher Ground tablet sleeves for schools also come with the best warranty protection in the industry. You can purchase your sleeves with total confidence and peace of mind. When the time finally comes for an upgrade, our 1/2-price-off replacement program will deliver substantial savings for your school district.
Higher Ground sleeves for iPads and tablets won't be difficult for students to carry them. Depending on the sleeve you choose, like the flak jacket slim, they can include comfortable handles that fit easily into a student's hand for secure carrying. Spacious pockets on the side of the sleeves can also provide extra room for tablet accessories and other school supplies.
Higher Ground supports its rugged tablet sleeves with the best service in the industry.
