    Hello all,

    I am going to be investing in a new iPad as my Ipad 2 has now died.

    I take it out and about with me in my bag and sometimes to construction sites etc and am looking for a robust case to keep it safe. I know that "safe" is a relative concept and I am not expecting it to be indestructable just something to keep it from being broken if dropped or my bag gets knocked etc. Rain / water resistant to some degree would be great too.

    I was looking at the STM Dux Case as a starting point.

    Can anyone with any experience of robust cases give some suggestions?

    (anything with a keyboard would be a bonus but isn't needed)

    Many thanks

    The Dux case looks pretty nice. I might look into this one.

    I use the Trident Kraken cases on my iPhone and iPad. I have dropped my iPhone off the second floor balcony of my apartment and the case did it's job and it only had a small crack. I will continue to buy their products just because of this. They are mil-spec cases.

    I had an eBay bucks balance, so I've decided to give the STM Dux case a try.

    I've been looking for a case that provides drop protection for my Air 2 and this one seems to fit the bill nicely. When it arrives, I'll post up some pics.

    i got the rugged folio for my ipad air 2 and I love it. You can use it as a laptop or disconnect the ipad due to magnets. its a great awesome case.

    Have the STM Dux for mine which have been using for a while but just got the otterbox defender which provides full around protection including the screen

    I think the iPad Air 2 is pretty fragile. It really warrants a case, in my opinion.
