The Ultimate Protection for your iPad {& an Otterbox Giveaway}

A couple months ago my little guy received one of the most incredible pieces of technology…
The Apple iPad

Obviously our biggest concern, before even leaving the Apple store, was finding the best case we could to keep the device protected {especially in hands of our four year old}.

We really did not want to leave the store without the added protection of a case but ultimately did once our Apple care rep highly suggested OtterBox. He said there are a lot of cases out there on the market, however nothing offering the same protection as some of the series OtterBox offers. I finally asked if he personally had an iPad and if so what case he had – when he said yes and OtterBox {and pulled out his phone with an OtterBox case}, the conversation was over.

OtterBox offers cases for the iPad and ipad2 {among other device-specific cases for today’s hottest technologies, including iPods, iPhones, Kindles, Blackberrys, and an array of mobile smartphones}

I had the pleasure of working with OtterBox last year {so I was thrilled to hear their name again directly from the Apple associate} Since OtterBox offers two different types of iPad cases I went right to the source for some additional advice, and the Defender Series was the obvious choice…and this statement “Drop-proof your magical, new must-have gadget with the OtterBox Defender Series for Apple® iPad™!” was just what I wanted to see.

The Defender Series case is composed of three separate layers of protection.

The first is a clear protective membrane that is applied right to the touch screen. Then there is a high-quality, hard polycarbonate shell which totally encases the iPad.

The third layer is a durable silicone skin that wraps around the hard shell.

It also has a separate detachable polycarbonate cover on the back that can be removed and snapped to the front of the iPad when not in use to cover and protect the screen.

This is perfect as we travel around with my little guy and iPad in tow.

The cover also doubles as stand which is perfect for watching movies and videos hands free. Another feature that is a huge benefit to us is the silicone grip pads that help secure the iPad in place on tabletops when my little guy is working.

This case definitely offers the ultimate in protection as every single inch of the device is covered – multiple times. Ours has been through the true tests of time and does not show any signs of wear – not even a scratch on the screen – and it has even taken a few tumbles too! The case does add a little weight to the iPad {which is well worth it considering the multiple layers of protection it provides} and it is actually easier for my little guy to handle as the silicone provides a better grip for his little hands.

Even if this tech toy was all mine {and not mainly for my four year old} I would still spring for the Defender Series case hands down. It not only is the ultimate protection against drops, bumps, and scratches but provides piece of mind for taking your iPad everywhere you go and every day use. This case encompasses everything I was wanted it to be and more and takes protection to another level.
