When not in use, the case securely holds the folio closed to maintain 360-degree protection, so you’re prepared for any adventure. Designed for dependability, Scout’s rugged clip provides added security to hold the Apple Pencil in place when charging/pairing with the device. In addition, UAG’s Scout series features feather-light construction, impact resistant core and easy access to all buttons and ports providing a smooth experience for all users. Price: US$49.95–US$59.95
