What Your Air Should Wear

On Air: 35 Great iPad Air Cases

Just because the word "air" is in your latest iPad's name doesn't mean it's going to float on the ether if (when) you drop it. There isn't going to be some magical, fluffy cloud protection when you slip it in your work bag or duffel; there is neither a keyboard nor some sort of built-in kickstand. So, clumsy, what're you supposed to do? How do you keep your pristine investment and advanced piece of technology looking new? How do you keep it accessible and functional in every imaginable way and every imaginable place, from the airplane to the board room to the living room?

For starters, you could do worse than picking up one of the best iPad Air cases on the market. We've rounded up 35 of the grandest grippers, gewgaw-laden sleeves, shells, keyboards and folios and parsed them by price.

Kit: 10 Items for Every Glovebox

Like a shoebox filled with letters from your old girlfriend (you don't still have that, do you?), no one wants to open your car's glove compartment. What on earth could be in there -- a non-functioning drugstore flashlight, insurance cards from 2009, a Spandau Ballet CD, perhaps some ketchup packets? Good god. We don't even know you. Clean out your filthy glovebox, ditch the garbage and start stocking it with these ten essentials.
