PROVIDENCE, RI (July 13, 2011) – G-Form, makers of the Extreme Sleeve for iPad – known widely as the world’s most rugged iPad Sleeve, today introduces the Extreme PortfolioTM for iPad, the world’s first portfolio-style case for tablets incorporating their remarkable RPT(Reactive Protection Technology).  Fully designed and manufactured in the United States of America, this lightweight and water-resistant portfolio case using G-Forms flexible RPTTM technology can actually accommodate a variety of different tablet sizes including both iPad 1 and iPad 2 and others.  The case is selectively reinforced with polycarbonate and added RPTTM corners offering front and corner protection for the iPad while in-use.  It has an adjustable easel stand, an inside pocket for documents and a reversible zipper that zips to convert the case to a doubly protective tablet format.

“Our customers love the peace of mind that the Extreme Sleeve gives them in protecting their electronics” said Thom Cafaro VP Innovations for G-Form, “Now with the Extreme Portfolio™ Case they can have that same level of protection for their iPad while using it.”

Unlike other portfolio cases that must be sized for a specific device, G-Form indicates that the Extreme PortfolioTM for iPad will fit a wide variety of tablets including iPad1, iPad 2, Xoom and others.  “Because our protection technology is flexible”, said Cafaro, “we can provide a portfolio case that can continue to fit your needs as you change or upgrade your tablet devices”.

Just like the Extreme Sleeve1 and 2 models, the exterior of the G-Form Extreme PortfolioTM for iPad is composed of RPT™ – a combination of PORON®XRD™ material and proprietary G-Form technology and design.  The RPT™ absorbs over 90% of the energy of an impact and stiffens to act like armor in order to offer a high level of protection for your iPad or other tablet.

According to G-Form, the Extreme PortfolioTM for iPad not only equals the unparalleled protection of the Extreme Sleeve but actually surpasses it due to proprietary improvements to the technology.  To demonstrate, the company does a side by side 60-foot drop onto concrete comparing the RPT™ powered Extreme PortfolioTM for iPad against a well known rigid case (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeI6_gNVPLs).  A longer version of the video with no cuts in the video drop test is also available (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K97AJ9YTRs4).

The G-Form Extreme PortfolioTM for iPad can be opened and used in several configurations.  The front cover can be reverse-zipped behind the iPad, which will offer two levels of RPTprotection beneath the iPad.  In this position the front screen is still protected by beefy RPTcorners that also serve to hold it securely in place.  The Extreme PortfolioTM for iPad can also be used in an easel or A-frame configuration in either landscape and portrait mode.

The Extreme PortfolioTM for iPad is available for pre-order now at www.g-form.com and the first pre-orders orders  will begin shipping on August 11th.  Pre-orders will initially be limited to 2 per customer.
