First off, this Otterbox case for my iPad 2 is TOUGH...and I really, really like that.
I spent a lot of money on my iPad and I am determined to protect it so it lasts for as long as possible.
Also, as I mentioned earlier, my kids are sometimes using my iPad 2 and well, they're kids...and kids can be rough on things.
(not sure they are harder on it than *I* am tho, lol!)
With this iPad2 case from Otterbox on my iPad, I just feel better. I know it will tolerate all that I (and my kids) can put this amazing gadget through.
This Otterbox case also has a handy stand on the back making it easier to type and it's REALLY nice when you're watching a movie. We fly a lot and the stand makes it really easy to watch movies on my iPad 2 while we are in flight.
The Otterbox also PROTECTS my iPad while I am doing the whole mumbo-jumbo at the airport. Going through security, throwing it in the bins or in my purse...or dropping it (gasp!) - the Otterbox has me covered.
This is a solid iPad 2 case - hands down just awesome.
Now, this case doesn't really add much weight to it, but you will know it is on. Because the case is so good at protecting your iPad, it does add a touch of extra bulk.
The only extra thing I did was to add a ZAGG screen cover sheet to the face of my iPad 2. To me, this extra protection is well worth it.
Some people think the ZAGG iPad 2 cover is too difficult to put on. However, if you follow these instructions exactly on the product page, it will work like a charm.
Also, some people in the reviews of the Otterbox Defender claim that this iPad case doesn't fit the iPad 2.
Yes, it does. This particular Otterbox is made specifically for the iPad 2 (has a spot for the camera and all that cool stuff that the iPad 2 has that the original iPad does not have).
There are a TON of reviews on this Otterbox iPad 2 case, read them all on the product page.
