    I’ve never tried these but I would guess that it’s the “crystal clear, high-grade poly” of which they’re made that makes them a better alternative to a Ziploc bag that may not be as clear.

    I’d be willing to give these a try if I was going to spend time on a beach or near a pool with my iPad to read a book and needed the clarity. Otherwise, I would default to a Ziploc! ;)

    Yeesh, talk about overpriced. Even if they were only a dollar per bag, regular zip-top baggies would still be a better deal.

    Honestly, I thing a better route would be to grab a bunch of the poly bags that comic book collectors use to store their comics. The bags made for Golden Age (1940s-1950s) comics should be just the right size for an iPad, would be reusable, and are much cheaper. A quick search shows that you can get 25 bags for about $11, or if you’re willing to buy in bulk, 1000 bags for as what works out to about 25 cents each. While comic poly bags don’t seal shut (which doesn’t exactly make them waterproof or sandproof), I’d think they’d be sufficient for use in the kitchen, where you just want to keep smears of food or droplets of grease off of your precious gadget.

    “why not use a ziplock?”

    because a capacitive touch screen won’t work?

    for the non-touch devices (kindle, etc.) sure….

    I just stuck my iPad in a 1 gal Ziploc, and the touch screen worked fine. I use the Pad in the kitchen all of the time, so this is a great discovery for me.

    I use plain old Saran wrap when bringing the iPad into the kitchen. Works great!

    Why not wrap it in plain simple kitchen plastic.
    A whole roll would cost much.
    Throw it away after use in the plastic recycle bin and you’re done.

    I’d just go with ZipLoc or Saran Wrap. I can’t imagine paying $14.99 for 3 sleeves! My Nook Classic touchscreen works JUST FINE through the ZipLoc.
