      Not water resistant, but still the best

      I tried out a few cases in pursuit of something waterproof/water resistant. Although there's about a half inch of rubber for water to angle its way through and into any of the speakers or ports, strictly speaking this is neither. But, I settled on this case because I can actually enjoy my iPad's qualities while using it. Waterproof cases totally diminish sound quality from the iPad Pro's 4 speakers. Furthermore, the lifeproof case has no screen protection (a must have) while griffin's screen protector wasn't flush like the otterbox is. I got very frustrated prodding at the corners trying to change tabs etc. No problems with the otterbox. I also don't find it adds too much heft and I personally like the textured rubber feel of the case. I would also add that the built in stand is great, not perfect, as more adjustability would be nice, but it is very stable and I get a heck of a lot of use of it. I think a nice stand is a must have and I like that it doubles in functionality as a screen protector or even a camera lens protector, when it's in a bag as it can be applied to either the front and rear of the case. On that note, one thing I would appreciate is a camera lens cap. Just a fold back piece of rubber or something, anything, honestly, to protect the camera as it is excellent on the iPad. Same goes for phones - on a general note - I buy premium phones almost exclusively for their top notch cameras, but cases almost never feature lens protection I can put my faith in. Anyway, knowing my iPad is safe is the only way I can enjoy it and now I've basically retired my laptop for all but the the most laborious keyboard tasks.

      The stand doubles as a screen cover when carrying. Some complained the stand lays down to much .If you stand it in the corners on the other side it is upright at the perfect view . See pictures ,I set it in the stand both ways . It can lay down or stand at a nice angle . The material it is made of is Awesome .The buttons still function well ,Charge port is accessible and the outer cover fits snug as you would want . The Camera is still open so you still get the pic you want when you need to use a I pad for pics. I take my I pad with me on the go a lot so I prefer the protection the Otter Box gives as opposed to a nice leather folder type case .It is just my preference I have used Otter Box cases on my previous I pads and they looked brand new still when I passed them on .No broken glass or scratches. To me you cant go wrong .I think 5 stars are deserving

      Although the salesman at Best Buy was very helpful in recommending a case for me, this one unfortunately didn’t fit my Ipad. It says fits a 9.7” Ipad on the package, (which mine is) however, I have the iPad 2017 and this case is for an iPad Pro. The difference is in the thickness of the 2 different models. Meaning, this case fit my iPad length & width, but the Ipad 2017 is thicker than the IPad Pro. Neither myself or the salesman realized that. Needless to say, I returned the case a couple of days later. No problems there as I was well within the 14 day window. I ordered a different case off Amazon as Best Buy didn’t seem to have one to fit my iPad. I’ve had other OtterBox cases though & they’re top notch.

      BULKY, but for people with safety first.

      I have three of these cases and is my second time purchase after upgrading to iPad Pros recently from Air. It's sad, that Apple keeps changing the layout every release!!! The case feels bulky, however is solid when holding it because of rubberized grip. It additionally has a plastic in front which protects iPad screen from inadvertently getting damaged. At times, there is an oily film that gets formed under the screen (I don't know why) which gets messy with touch experience rendering iPad useless at times until wiped cleaned by opening the entire case but puts the life back again. It's not water proof either, as using moist towels can get it under the plastic screen and be problematic. Other than these few quirks, the case is an excellent protection for the cost of iPad - knowing that there is a good recycling bonus for well kept devices.

      I wouldn't dream of investing in a piece of gear like the iPad Pro without protecting my investment. When I think of protection for my gear only one name comes to mind (Otterbox). The Otterbox Defender series for my iPad Pro is extremely well designed. It fits my device so well that it appears and feels like one unit instead of an iPad inside of a case. It protects the front, back and the screen. In addition to Otterbox's impressive design specs, the Defender still maintains a sleek, tech-savvy, eye-candy image that adds not only to the appeal of my iPad but it's value as well. Job Well Done!

      When I purchased my new iPad I wanted to have great protection around the outside as my previous iPad had suffered a cracked screen due to it being poked out of my hand by my young children. I have an Otterbox for my iPhone and it has protected my phone multiple times; which is why I decided to give it a chance for the iPad. So far, I am very pleased with the size and weight of the case; however, the detachable front shield/stand I have found to be a good stand, but otherwise it is very bulky to use and put on. I found that unless I'm going somewhere, the shield stays at home. I feel as though the plastic screen protector is also good, but sometimes gets in the way of the fingerprint scanner/home button, but it isn't every time.

      I take my devices out of the box brand new, straight into an Otterbox Defender case. And when the time comes to sell, trade, or give the devices away, they still look brand new. Even years later! I have lost them in snow banks, had them fall off of roofs, and still worked afterwards. Truly the best protector I have ever had and I am on my 3rd iPhone and 2nd iPad and all work and look brand new because of theses cases. I will never use anything else. Pricey but what would a repair cost you?

      I have the otterbox defender on all my electronics that I can find one to fit. My iPad Pro, mini and iPhone all have thes3 cases. They keep you from getting a scratched screen, or breaking a screen or breaking the product when dropped. I like to take my electronics in the car and to keep th3m out of sight, I slide them under the seat. Did not know my seat had a sharp place so when I pulled my iPad out once I got home, the screen racked right across that sharp point and put a scratch on the otterbox but not on my iPad. So glad I had the case on there. Worth every penny.
