    I've seen many of these and I'm looking to assuage my fears of dropping my iPad while reading on the train. Any experiences?

    As much of a klutz as I am, that seems like overkill, but certainly adding more protection than I was thinking.

    I have this on my Defener Case, and I love it. It can also be used without any case. I am not sure how it would work with other cases. I have been using Otter Box product for about eight years and everything I have of there's is world class stuff.

    Good Luck,

    I decided on the helostrap because it seemed like the best compromise of small, removable, rotatable and foolproof.

    The Handeholder is intriguing, but the replace after 6 months deal is a prescription for forgetting and having an accident. It also uglifies the device even when not using the holder.

    The Helo strap comes off easy, is smaller than most others and allows rotation. The ones integrated with a case mean you have to like the case and can't use things like the Zaggmate case.

    My thoughts exactly. The Helo strap looks like it will fit no matter what case or cover you have.

    I'm sure I'll be able to use the HeloStrap to hold the iPad face up in the Zaggmate using the bungi straps. Seems a flexible solution, but not perfect.

    I'd prefer a separation of the straps that attach to the back and the connection that rotates and attaches to your hand. Then, I can take off that hand piece and substitute a car mount, headrest mount or fridge mount. That would be a more flexible solution.

    I'll probably try to make this out of the Helostrap if no one else creates it. I like multifunctional devices - hence my iPad2

    Helo looks too expensive.

    I would so get a grabbit because of its back case feature, but i don't live in Euro, and I don't see any developments for ipad 2

    handstand has the capabilities but not the appeal for me. It looks functional however.

    Griffin of course had to make their cheap functional product.

    Hand-e...LOVE. I like the picture of the girl with it around her thigh will she is reading, but I doubt that it is that stretchy. Also I don't like the idea of sticking something directly on my iPad. That feels like it will limit my functionality.

    IE. I pre-ordered a grovemade, handmade wooden case with leather smart cover attached. This will be my business case. However, I may want to change my iPad's clothes and slip it into a silicone case, or something more casual. I don't like the idea of having that 3M strip on there because inevitably it will wear out and I will have to buy another or my iPad will fall while I'm not an elevator and a 3 year old will step on it. NOT PRETTY. Hand-e is definitely on the right track. Maybe it should have a removable and sealable film that I could use when ready for the 360 fun.

    Just saw the different option for the leg holder in the store for Hand-E, as well as extra dual locks. They definitely have the accessories for their accessory? Has anyone tried modding something and it as a dash mount for the car?

    Got my HeloStrap today. Simple, small, effective. Of course you could make one with a strong sewing machine, velcro, ballistic nylon and thin bungy strap. Didn't want to do that, so I bought this. Best of all, I took off the 'Helostrap' sticker - I hate stickers and logos - yes even little apple ones. I bought, it's mine.

    This thread made me want something with a handstrap like the Helostrap. I almost ordered it until I saw the Sleeve 360 over at the Woots community deals.
    at Woot earlier. I ordered it at wiredforless and got it for only 20 beans using the code "WOOT"
    I'll write it up when I get it cause there does not seem tobe much info other than a few vids at Youtube. Sorry I couldnt post a link but this is my first post. Im excited to be joining this community.

    Sleeve 360 looks like a good alternative as it seems to have flexible applications. You have to like the case though. Please do a write-up. When my whole setup arrives (Zaggmate, Gelaskin and iPad2), I'll take some photos and write a review.
