The Incipio NGP Impact Resistant Case for iPad Retina (Translucent Mercury) provides excellent shock-absorbing protection and is stretch and impact resistant. A top, soft matte finish coating leaves the case smooth to the touch. NGP stands for "Next Generation Polymer" - a semi-rigid dense polymer. The NGP material is malleable enough to slip around and snugly hold your iPad Retina, but firm enough to withstand impacts and scrapes. The NGP for iPad Retina allows complete accessibility to all ports and buttons. Charge your device or sync to iTunes with ease through the open charge port while your device remains protected in this sleek case.
