    Ultimate Protection for iPad

    This case was on sale and it turned out to be a great purchase. It has a built-in clear screen protector and button cover, neither of which interferes with normal operation of the touch screen or fingerprint reader. The case includes a removable front cover that truly protects the entire screen as it bounces around in a backpack stuffed with other items that could cause damage. The cover also acts as a base with a kickstand. All of this and it still manages to be fairly slim. Could not ask for more. iPads are required for students at our school next year so that means 180 days of potential accidents and rough handling. Even with Apple Care coverage you often have to pay some fees for repairs. Do yourself a favor and just keep your iPad safe.

    We have OtterBox cases on all of our devices in the house! My son is 8 now but we've used OtterBox since he was about 2 years old. Let's face it, our devices take a beating with children and the OtterBox keeps them safe, clean, and in one peice. My son has dropped his iPad down the stairs from the top step and it was perfectly fine that's why when we bought him a new iPad for Christmas I didn't hesitate to buy another OtterBox. If you're going to spend good money on electronics you need to get a case you can trust. Another thing I'd like to add is my little guy loves how the case has a built in stand so he can have it sit upright while watching YouTube or movies, his friends always comment how much they wish their cases did that.

    Got this to protect wife’s birthday iPad. Had an otterbox on her last one, and she will not use her Apple products until the cover is on. Protected her previous one during a fall out of the truck onto the pavement. They seem pricey until you consider screen replacement cost. This Otterbox for the 5th gen IPad unfortunately only comes in black. I really searched for a colored one like the purple/pink mini case, but no dice. I have one on my IPad too, by the way. They are so sturdy that I won’t consider anything else, and the fact that the screen cover is built in means the Otterbox is all you need.

    I have had otterbox iPhone cases and they are amazingly durable, especially when dropped. So I only wanted the same protection for our iPads, I’m not thrilled that all they offer is black, but I had no other color choice. I replaced our 8 y/o’s iPad case from griffin to otterbox because I knew how well it protects my dropping accidentally iPhones, and the amazing protection. Our other 2 high quality cases literally broke apart under her usage, so I’m hoping this protects as well as my iPhone cases have been extremely worthy. My go to brand for all Apple products!

    I would not purchase a iPad tablet if any size without factoring the cost to protect such an investment. That's the bottom line. In addition I have the Apple Care coverage as well. But because the iPad is pricey item even in sale, my rule of thumb is to consider price paid for the investment and consider coverage/warranty versus costs for repairs in the event you don't have a protective case for your iPad. I have a Defender series for my iPad Pro also. The smaller iPad is for "On the Go" adventures anyway.

    This fit perfect for my iPad mini 5th generation late Dec.2017 bought on Black Friday from Best Buy. Adds a little weight to the iPad but i’ve had the defenders for all my iPhones and never had a cracked screen or drop that caused any damage thru 5 iPhones so expect the same with this tablet case. Case was on sale @ Best Buy $44.00 reg. 89.00 and none else had it in stock. Very pleased with product to protect my iPad.

    I was very satisfied with the good looks and durability of the otterbox case I bought for my samsung phone. Therefore I decided to get one for my ipad. My primary concerns were that the screen cover would reduce the touchabilty of the ipad. I've had other cases with built-in screens that left a small space between the screen and the device. The otterbox case, however, fits very snuggly and I haven't noticed any reduction in touability or usability. I would highly recommend this case.

    Truly protects the ipad

    My children love their iPads. We have always used a cover. My mom didn't want a cover, she used the pretty book type of cover- big mistake. Her screen shattered, ended up buying a second iPad. This cover is for her. We've used otter boxes for our phones and iPads for years. They can fall out of your bag/hands/truck etc and bounce. No damage or wear yet. I don't recommend proving this but, the case helps big time with spills.
