To keep up with the ever-changing world of technology you need to be able to access your information from anywhere and respond with whatever information is needed. The problem with most mobile tablet technology is even though it’s large enough to hold the data needed it lacks in work-station functionality. The solution? Make the tablet a mobile workstation. The iBackFlip is the perfect on the go work station. It’s completely hands free to allow you the freedom to access your data while performing other tasks on the go. Most ipad cases are only designed to carry the device conveniently but they don’t make it convenient to access your data while traveling or away from your office. The iBackFlip™ is more than just a carrying case it also takes the place of a lap desk, a travel sling, and a completely mobile work station. The iBackFlip is the ultimate ipad sling bag for travel. You will never want to travel with any other utility pack once you’ve used the iBackFlip. No matter your occupation you can benefit from its ease of use and hands free design, other ipad carrying cases don’t have the easy iBackFlip sling design or the complete features of this utility pack.

Operate seamlessly in situations when you need quick access your iPad, while keeping your hands free for other tasks. Simply turn the shoulder bag around on your body and flip the case open to gain instant access. Or you can sit down, quick disconnect the shoulder strap and reverse the backpack to create a portable iPad stand.

Frequently Asked Questions

“How does the camera work with the bag closed?”
Once you start recording you can close it, or attach a set of headphones with the button function to act like a shutter, and then just zip up the bag.

In the General Settings on the iPad there is a Disable sleep-wake magnet function.

“Will the original iPad and the new iPad fit?”
Yes. Both the iPad 1, iPad 2 and the new iPad (3rd generation) fit inside the iBackFlip Somersault Slim perfectly.

“Is there enough room for my power adapters, cables, keyboard dock and more?”
There is enough storage with the 1 front storage pocket on the Somersault Slim to accommodate all sorts of cool stuff. A keyboard dock might be too large, if you need more storage we recommend the full-size Somersault which has way more storage capabilities.

“What about the 30 Pin Access for Battery Packs and Adapters?”
We designed the iBackFlip Somersault Slim so you have full access on both sides for any 30 pin device. You can even thread a battery pack to it and leave a space in-between the 2 zippers to run the cable to an external iPad battery pack.

“Do you ship internationally?”
Yes. We currently ship almost everywhere there is mail delivery in the world.

“Do any shops carry iBackFlip products internationally?”
Not yet. We are gearing up for international retail over the coming months.

    It worked great. I went to a trade show in Las Vegas and had it with me for three days straight as I walked the floor. Checked my email periodically and was not hampered by having to carry it in my hands or a larger shoulder case. Job well done! Thanks for making it happen.

    My daughter is using my iBackFlip Somersault Slim on Mt Charleston to the north of Las Vegas. She had downloaded The Night Sky app on her iPad, but since the Vegas sky is too bright at night to actually compare the real sky to the visuals in The Night Sky, we had to leave Las Vegas to make good use of the app. Thanks to the iBackFlip Somersault Slim’s “hands free iPad deployment”, she was able to walk, talk, touch the computer screen, and point to celestial bodies – all without fear of dropping the tablet. A great product.

    I have been looking for a long time for a case/carrier for my iPad. I am not a big fan of folios(due to the lack of protection), netbook sleves(not enough storage), and defender cases(too much bulk). This case mixes everything up. Proper storage, with extra to boot, protects the iPad perfectly(with autowake magnets, a major plus), and if I feel like pulling it out to use it there is no extra bulk to juggle around. I have been looking for a bag to travel with since I am always on the go, and this bag lets me go and use my iPad at the same time. Excellent product, and I believe I will be purchasing another for my wifes iPad as well.

    I bought the Somersault Slim and I couldn’t be happier. The quality is excellent. It’s light weight and convenient, too. I take it with me everywhere.

    Got mine yesterday and love it so far. Work great! Very comfortable and convenient. Everything is very solid. Love all the types of material used. I’m so glad the new version covers the camera opening. Zippers are smooth and kinks-free. The padded meshed backing is AWESOME! The little velcro to hold the iPad in is great. Very well thought out and made. Worth the money. Thanks.

    Two wishes:
    1. Carrying handle is a little more sturdy. Feels like an add-on (afterthought) and feels it’s going to break soon.
    2. Something to hold the two side adjustable straps. The extra strap is dangling.

    Only one complaint so far: For some reason, the back of my iPad is getting black rubbery marks along the edges (black glue coming off?). Wipes off with but keeps getting it when I put my iPad in.

    I have ordered hundreds of these backflip somersaults for our company Arizona Iced Tea, they are great! We really love them and we just kepp ordering them!

    I work for direct energy and plan on telling my boss about this product because we now have hundreds of agents using iPads for work doing door to door sales and I love how this acts as a sling that’s waterproof. I may buy 100+ of these from you if the first one works correctly for myself and coworkers :-)
