We love our Nexus 7 tablets here at AC. We know that the 7-inch size means they are perfect for throwing in a gear bag, where they get all sorts of abuse (see Phil's poor Thunderbolt), so they need a good case to keep them from turning into a busted mess. The 10Terra Eco Friendly bamboo case fits the bill perfectly.
It's 100-percent natural bamboo, 100-percent made by hand. Bamboo is tough as nails, and looks beautiful. That translates perfectly into a case for your Nexus 7. Everything fits as intended, with generous and precise cut-outs for the speakers, controls, and ports. I mention it in the video (you'll find that after the break) but there is zero wiggle or play. Every cut is exactly where it needs to be.
Because bamboo is tough, it's also going to protect your tablet from getting dinged, and especially protect the fake leather-like soft back -- the same material that I have already gouged to hell and back on mine. The corners are reinforced, and everything but the screen is well protected.
To top it all off, the 10Terra case is a thing of beauty. Your Nexus 7 has that same classy look that bamboo gives to hardwood flooring, and it's going to stay looking good for a long time. I'm not a case guy, but I realize I need one on my Nexus 7, and this is the one I think I'll be buying for myself.
As of today, the 10Terra Eco Friendly case is a Kickstarter project. That means they need our help to get proper funding, which we can do by pre-ordering (or just tossing them a bone if you're low on funds at the moment). A pledge of $44 gets you a case for a Nexus 7 with free shipping in the US. See the link below for information about pledging and Kickstarter in general. Be sure to read through to see an image gallery and a hands-on with this one.
