The stock case for the iPad – yes, the one it should come with but you still have to pay $50 for – is fine, but it’s really nothing more than a stepping stone. Cladding your svelte new iPad in that case is the same as drinking a fine scotch from the plastic cups you had in college. There’s nothing wrong with it, but it’s just a little utilitarian for our taste. Apple wanted to step up their game too, but apparently all the engineers were busy working on the next best thing. So they called in designer Jack Spade. Jack’s exclusive Apple case is made of premium nylon and has a lot more protection (including a locking velcro latch) for your most precious of gadgets. It’s also fully dockable and retains the landscape and portrait viewing positions you’re accustomed to. Remember, there’s no Plan B for a busted iPad.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
