The team at www.loopattachment.com contacted me a number of weeks ago to try out their new Mummy Case for the iPad mini. They also sent me their iPhone case ” The Mummy” for the iPhone 4s & % back along. I reviewed the Mummy’s predecessors for iPhone 4/4S & the iPhone 5, and I was a big fan, so I had high hopes for this case. I’m pleased to say the guys in Loop haven’t let me down.
Clever name isn’t it ? the name for the case came about because of the “strips of cloth” look on the back of this silicone case. I have to say there is a serious amount of colours to pick from– black, white, graphite, neon green, neon blue, red, magenta, powder blue, orange, purple — i was sent the graphite case this time around and it was striking against both the White and Black iPad.
Just like its smaller siblings, it’s made almost entirely from a soft, coated silicone that provides impact protection from those inevitable dings and drops. It’s also the first envoloping silicone case that’s designed to be compatible with the iPad mini’s Smart Cover, and the Mummy’s built-in magnets will keep your Smart Cover pinned back while your device is in use.
The Mummy has been carefully designed to show off the Apple logo on the back of your device, as well as provide access to all of your buttons, ports, and speakers while still protecting your iPad mini from head to toe.
I’ve been testing the Mummy for around a month to find out whether it’s well worth its $30 price tag.
Like other silicone cases, the Mummy aims to provide you with a simple solution for protecting your beloved iPad mini from almost everything you might throw at it from day to day. But unlike other cheap silicone cases that you can buy for online it does so while looking good if not different, and without feeling cheap and tacky.
The Mummy’s best feature is that it is Smart Cover compatible, so you can still use your Smart Cover to protect your iPad’s display when it’s not in use.And when your iPad’s in use, the Mummy’s built-in magnets on its right side will hold your Smart Cover against your device, so that it doesn’t get in your way. You will see on the pic above the smart case does pop up a tiny bit when closed but it really doesn’t affect usage.

I’ve really enjoyed using the Mummy case for iPad mini. It’s slightly bulkier than iPad mini cases I’d usually use, but it gives me extra peace of mind.
The Mummy also looks cool, and Its a massive benefit that I can still use my Smart Cover with it — every iPad case should offer Smart Cover compatibility if it doesn’t have its own front cover. And to top all this off It’s very well priced
