New, improved design

We are constantly looking for ways to improve our existing products, and that includes this best-selling tablet kneeboard. Customer feedback, real world tests, and improvements in technology have led to this new and improved design. The Flight Gear HP iPad Kneeboard holds the iPad right where you need it - secure on your leg but easily within reach. An integrated kickstand means you can tilt the iPad towards you, which helps to reduce glare. A simple hook-and-loop rotation mechanism allows for portrait or landscape viewing. The side flap is covered with soft material for attaching any of Sporty’s Flight Gear HP Gear Mods.

Features:

  • Four elastic bands lock the iPad kneeboard into place
  • Removable board permits both vertical and horizontal mounting options
  • Contoured back and elastic strap securely hold the kneeboard on your leg
  • Large slash pocket on exterior holds charts or even a clipboard
  • ID holder on outside identifies your kneeboard
  • Two internal, low-profile side pockets - perfect for cords and screen cleaners
  • Zippered pocket stores larger items (protective flap protects iPad screen from zipper)
  • Side flap can be folded under for a smaller profile (strap pass through slot built-in)
  • Elastic pen/stylus holder
  • Accepts Gear Mods
Choose from two models: iPad Mini (fits versions 1-5), or full size iPad (Air 1-3, Pro 9.7/10.5/11, iPad 5-7).

Well made but not for the iPad pro
It is great quality but with the iPad Pro the straps that attach it too the case cover too much of the areas in ForeFlight that you use., tried using it with just two of the 4 straps and can make do.

I’d try something else if you have the iPad pro

Too small for iPad Pro 11
To small to fit a 11” iPad Pro. Otherwise, probably would work just fine.

Very good product; just be smarter than the straps
Works well with my iPad 7. Some complained that the straps that secure the iPad covered too much of the screen corners. The trick is to stretch them around the corners and not over them. See picture.

I would have liked a couple grommets for use in teathering items to the knee board; such as a Bad Elf GPS, etc. to prevent their loss. I made my own holes on the zipper cover flap for this purpose.

Bert durable material and the correct size. Rests well on the leg.
Stretch the straps 'around' the corners instead of 'over' them.

Terrible quality, you cannot event imagine
I understand that the product is only $35 and did not expect anything much of it, since it`s just and iPad holder. However, it had fallen apart in my hands! It`s zipper disconnected and broke down during first 30 seconds of use. It seems that by design (or it`s my version`s issue) it just won`t hold. Overall, the product is also really poorly stitched together (don`t talk about materials since it`s only $35)

Great Kneeboard, but more than a little tight on my iPad Air
Love the Kneeboard, can easily rotate the iPad, prop it up (which I love), and the pockets with felt area are great. Only a few small issues. The iPad Air(2019) was a very tight fit to get it strapped in and the top right strap was depressing the volumes buttons so I had to undue that one. The other issue is that you lose the tilt feature if you put the kneeboard on your left leg (not a big concern for me). You can also see in the attached photo that the straps do cover a little bit of the corners, but so far that hasn't been a show stopper.

Corner Straps are Really Tight With Otter Box Back Cover Installed
It’s convenient, however, the elastic corner straps that hold the iPad in position are difficult to manipulate when inserting or removing the iPad. My iPad is already in an Otter Box protective case with the top lid removed, and that makes the straps really tight and extra difficult to get the iPad in and out of the kneeboard. I’ve just started using this product, so I’m not going to guess about how durable or reliable it is.

Returned it. The elastic straps on the 4 corners made it hard to access and see portions of my iPad.

Will this case hold the IPad Pro 10.5"? There are two similar questions that appear to conflict.
A shopper on Aug 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will hold the 10.5 iPad.
Will it fit an ipad pro 2018 11-inch?
Kenneth G on Jan 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes they cover the screen corners. I cut my corner straps in half and can now hit the corner buttons when needed. Use a sharp razor and pull the straps out. There are rubber bands in the fabric so when you cut you’ll have frayed material. Use a lighter and move the flame over the frayed material to have it melt off. Not responsible for peeps that cut it all the way off. Please use care as the razor blade is very sharp and can cut deep. Use a light touch and you’ll save your fingers and your knee board.
What size iPad with this accommodate?
A shopper on Oct 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There are two options - one for the iPad Mini size (1-4), and one for iPad Air 1-2/iPad Pro 9.7".
Will this secure the iPad during aerobatics? I'm looking for a sturdy iPad kneeboard that isn't bulky, will hold things in place during aerobatics, and won't pop off when my g-suit inflates.
A shopper on Dec 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have this knee-board and I love it! But ... I would not trust it in aerobatics. The Velcro just holds the bottom of the iPad in place to keep it from sliding around during normal operations. After having this for a week, I am certain your iPad would fly right off in high G situations.
Is it possible to rotate this to wear on the left leg?
A shopper on Jan 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is possible to rotate this to use on the left leg.

Is the clipboard included?
A shopper on Mar 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No. It mounts your iPad to one side on your leg, the other side is essentially a pouch
I see questions about the straps blocking the corners of the iPad. Is it possible to cut a slight notch and still keep the iPad secure to the knee board?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend cutting any material out of the elastic strap because it may weaken the
tension strength or possibly cause it to become unraveled. If the strap obstructs viewing presentation that is in the corner of the ipad or tablet, you may want to try wrapping thread , string, or a narrow piece of tape around the elastic to make the strap more narrow. That would still preserve the strength of strap and possibly improve the view. Good luck.

I know it states what iPads it holds, but can it also fit older model iPads?
Casey Pederson on Nov 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The biggest factor is the screen size. I just got my new knee-board a few days ago and love it. It has elastic straps that hold the iPad in place. So it is not like some hard case mounts that are ultra specific.

My iPad is a 9.7" screen, but is 11" exactly from corner to corner. If your iPad (or other tablet, for that matter) measures around that, you should be good to go with this knee-board. OH! And it is comfortable, too! My only wish is that they had another Velcro strap at the top, too, for extra hold when i have the knee-board flat, as in my aircraft I actually prefer NOT to prop it up.

Hope that helps.
Will it hold the iPad Pro 10.5" ?
JoeyG on Aug 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This WILL fit the pro 10.5”. This will not fit the 12” pro.
Will it work with the Apple Smart case?
Chris C on Dec 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The elastic straps that secure the iPad to the kneeboard have enough elasticity to stretch over the iPad while in a smart case. However, doing this will add bulk to an already less than slim case.
I see that this doesnt fit an ipad with otterbox, can someone please recommend one that does???
Bryson B on Jun 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The MyClip Multi will fit almost any iPad with almost any case.

Will this hold the 10.2 inch 7th gen ipad (2019)? It is not as wide and longer than the previous model.
Avery H on Dec 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, select the 9.7 iPad.
Removable board permits both vertical and horizontal mounting options. DOES THIS FUNCTION ALLOW USE OF THE KICKSTAND FOR LEFT LEG USE?
wf m on Dec 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Either leg, works fine, Ive tried both and its versitile, you can disconnect the tilting board with your Ipad or Android and flip it 180degrees...The Velcro is really strong on this particular brand.

David C on Nov 22, 2019
