Watershed Introduces Waterproof iPad Cover

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Watershed, makers of the finest submersible waterproof bags we have seen, has introduced an iPad cover. It is designed so that you can actually use your Ipad while still in the bag. They showed us a prototype at one of the early Fall trade shows and it is pretty cool. We held off writing about it because they aren’t on the website yet, but they can take your order over the phone (1-800-811-8601). Retail cost is $96.95.

Remember that the entire Watershed line is available from ADS.

Moleskine Unveils iOS Device Covers

Sunday, October 3rd, 2010

We have written about the legendary Moleskine notebooks in the past, and we also rely on both an iPhone as well as an iPad. So were were quite pleased to find out that Moleskine will be releasing what they are referring to as new hybrid tools. These include a Tablet Cover for iPad and a Smartphone Cover for the iPhone 3G and 3GS. Naturally, the covers will include a built-in blank page notebook. Fortunately, the notebooks are replaceable since they fill up fast and we prefer the gridded paper versions.

The new covers resemble Moleskine notebooks, featuring rounded corners and the classic elastic band to keep the smooth black cover secured. Additionally, the inside is lined with suede to prevent to prevent screen damage. Pre-order now from

Can’t Get Enough Soldier Systems?

In addition to our daily updates here on the site, there are several other ways to get your Soldier Systems fix. Don’t forget that we are a daily and normally update a minimum of twice per day so come back regularly to keep up on the latest news. If that isn’t enough, we offer several alternatives.

Our list of followers on Twitter continues to grow. In addition to alerts of new stories we also release information through Twitter that might be of interest to our readers or is related to our core content but originates elsewhere.

We launched our Facebook page awhile back and are jut beginning to make use of it. Dissatisfied with how we have seen some companies use their accounts we wanted to get in there with a plan to make the experience more meaningful. Look for lots of content soon.

Our iPhone app has been extremely popular and delivers the latest updates directly to your iPhone each time you open it.
iTunes has been most gracious in offering us a dedicated sub-forum to interact with our readers. Not only is it a great place to discuss our articles and current issues in the Soldier Systems industry but gives access to the best group of Subject Matter Experts we have run across. No over-inflated CVs, no BS, just good information. Military, Law Enforcement, or a fan of the Black Rifle? You should be a member of

The Future
Here at SSD we continuously look at ways to increase interaction with our readers. One example is that we are ready to release an app for the Android. Additionally, some of our writers have begun to develop specialized content for other sites. For example, you may have seen the article on Environmental Clothing Systems on ADS Inc’s web site. You will also begin to see some of our stuff in print. We have also posted content from the Mad Duo and others.

Something very exciting is happening to SSD very soon. Once we get over this busy trade show season, a big change is coming.

One final word. None of this would be possible without the support of our sponsors. We have affiliated ourselves with reputable companies who provide solid products and services and we would not hesitate to recommend any of them. At SSD we look at our sponsorship program as a two-way street. We are endorsing them as much as they are us and we urge you to support them.

We are constantly improving our fighting position, so if you have any additional ideas on ways SSD can do more for you, please feel free to share them with us.
