    Not really. I use a hoodman, and while it does cut down some of the glare, and its better than nothing, its not like looking at your ipad inside the house... I've yet to see anything that worked completely.

    I use PadHat (magnetic version) from Hoodivision on my iPad Air and it does work fairly well due to its 70-degree angle tilt. It helps cut a lot of glare and sunlight. It's also easy to put on and fold down for storage.

    Any thoughts about the PadHat mini hybrid? In have been thinking about one for the Nvidia Shield K1.

    Regards, Jim

    Not direct experience, but my buddy has a PadHat for his Mini 2 that is magnetic only and he doesn't like it. Blows off in the wind.

    It does look like the "hybrid" version supports the slightly larger Nvidia Shield, and also addresses the blowing off in the wind problem.

    As there really isn't anything else out there except some wonky DIY solutions for the Shield, I'd have to say it sounds pretty good.

    YIKES! Did I see that cost correctly? $99 for the hood for the iPad Air!
    Sorry, but that's a little bit too pricey for me.
