Protection for our portable iDevices has become a big and very important industry, because shielding our investments from harm is vital to our future enjoyment. Gumdrop is a California-based company founded by a pair of innovative and progressive developers who simply wanted to design stylish heavy-duty cases for people on-the-go. I have extensively used their DropTech iPhone 6 plus and 7 plus cases, as well as their DropTech iPad Pro 12.9” and iPad Air 2 cases, plus their Hideaway iPad Pro 12.9” case.
The Gumdrop DropTech Series delivers ultimate protection for all of my devices. These feature a built-in screen protector (on the iPhones), a Polycarbonate snap frame, built-in hide-away stand, and a rugged silicone case. Dual-material construction provides multiple layers of shock absorption, yet still allowing for easy accessibility, and full access to mic, speaker and charging port with full protection.
The snug fit of these cases allows for complete protection along with delightful comfort. DropTech cases are ready to take on just about any job, adventure and environment. Their rugged technology benefits most all industries such as farmers in the Midwest, to high-volume restaurants, to over 2,500+ K-12 schools nationwide. This is a case you can depend on, no matter where you are, or how you use it.
The Gumdrop Hideaway Series takes protection to the max for the iPad (and Samsung) tablets with its rugged design, protective case and built-in stand. It features a built-in screen protector, a Polycarbonate snap frame, built-in hide-away stand, and a rugged silicone case. With a variety of color schemes, its a handsome case to show off too.
The Hideaway is the first choice of educators and industry professionals when it comes to providing ultimate protection for iPads. In the classroom, the Hideaway protects a school's technology, makes education more tech friendly, and helps kids with Autism get more out of their learning experience. In radically different settings elsewhere, it helps corn farmers utilize technology in rugged terrain; or, like the New Sous Chef, high-volume restaurants have a safe and convenient way to blend technology into their kitchens.
I have have been using these cases for over month, and find them rugged and durable. The added weight is well worth it to ensure maximum defense against falls, bumps, spills, and other unfortunate accidents. The back-pattern of the cases initially looks like off-road tire tread, but actually feels great during regular carrying, handling and laptop use. These have now become part of my regular use.
The DropTech case for the new iPhone 7 plus has a strong rubberized edge bumper with a clear protective back (showing my JetBlack unit), plus an excellent easy-to-mount screen on the front. It is easy to grip, but won’t slid on a table, seat cover or other surface (no longer a worry when driving or on slick surfaces).

Gumdrop products include much more than iDevice cases. They also have protective cases for most Android devices, plus laptop computers (like the MacBook). Also included are the Sleeve Series, Bounce Skin, FoamTech, Softshell, and more. This company’s focus is to provide the best protection possible, in most challenging environments . . . and they are very successful at achieving this at most reasonable prices.
