Rising above its competitors, Trident continues its sleek Kraken A.M.S. series of cases for smart devices with a durable, yet practical case for Apple’s iPad Air.

The Kraken A.M.S (Adaptive Modular System). series of tablets and smart phones are Trident’s top of the line. Comprised of an exoskeleton front plate made of shock absorbing hardened polycarbonate, inner silicone sleeve and polycarbonate exoskeleton back plate, the Kraken A.M.S. for the iPad Air offers the upmost in protection. It meets military standards for drop, vibration, dust, sand and rain and is made from degradable, recyclable and compostable materials.

Although Trident provides an installation video for the Kraken A.M.S., it seems most consumers can assemble the case in mere seconds. However, the video provides valuable instructions that may often be overlooked. Some owners of other Kraken A.M.S. models say the casing and snaps tends to come undone. But for this review and following the directions from the video, this reviewer experienced no issues with the casing or snaps. Another concern about protective cases for iPads is whether or not the side buttons can be accessed efficiently. Some cases are so bulky and poorly manufactured that the iPad side buttons are rendered useless. Yet with the Kraken A.M.S. case for the iPad Air, the side button is easily manipulated and accessible.

One caveat with the Kraken A.M.S. case for the iPad Air does add weight to the tablet – it weighs .65 lb – which may or may not be an issue for a consumer who needs a lightweight protective case. Nevertheless, this case is superb, and well worth the investment to protect something as valuable as an iPad Air.
