Remember the days of the Trapper Keeper, Pee-Chee and those old black composition books we all learned to dread in high school and college?

They're back!

Only this time, they are back in cover form only to protect our trusted and valuable tablets from those drops and coffee spills.

Kensington, a leader in offering smart, safe and simple solutions for our mobile devices is getting an "A" from me as we approach the start of another school year.

Tablet users take note.

These brand new Mead-inspired cases look like what students and academics used in the ‘80s. The universal folios provide protection for just about any 7” or 10” tablet.

“We are excited to work with Kensington to reintroduce two of our most recognized and celebrated sub brands and designs to a new generation of students. It’s a natural partnership for us to expand these iconic lines into the tablet category, and we’re looking forward to our consumers’ response to using these new products with their favorite tech tools,” said Jessica Hodges, Senior Director of Marketing for Mead.

I would expect these to be popular with not only children, but everyone up through the Baby Boom generation.

“There is definite appeal and nostalgia in marrying classic designs to new technology solutions, and we are delighted to release a collection that combines contemporary tablet accessories with such iconic designs from Mead,” said Greg Agustin, Global Product Manager at Kensington. “Introducing this new line of tablet folios is especially fitting when you consider how quickly students are choosing digital tools.”

The cases are lightweight and constructed well, and they provide protection for your device through the Silicone 4-Corner Base. This uses simple stay straps that come up and over the corners of the tablet.

Kensington Trapper Keeper Universal Folio Case for 7”-8” Tablets (Red-K97329WW; SRP $24.99)
