I will have to check on the make, but it would be classified as a large ziplock bag. Paid about $20. It has two zip locks, which you fold over under a velcro enclosure. It nearly exactly fits the Ipad and swiping through the thick clear plastic is a non-issue. If there were a hard case, you would still need to be able to manipulate the screen, so that may be the reason we haven't seen one.

I was looking for a hard case too and settled for this. However, it was an unjustified bias. The zip lock works great.

While I removed it, there is also a neck lanyard with it and assume the bag would still fit in a RAM holder if you wanted to mount it. However, I haven't tried. I sort of doubt you would be able to easily mount a hard case. However, ours just lives on top of or inside our cockpit table when underway. Finally, I've simply used the bag to transport the Ipad to shore in the dink just in the event it was dropped in the water, then take it out once I'm having a cup of coffee near a wifi spot.
