For handling the most extreme weather conditions and scenarios, devices owned by construction workers, medical professionals, safety and rescue specialists, military personnel, outdoor adventurists and recreational enthusiasts have all sought refuge inside an Andres Industries rugged and tough watertight impact proof case. Any questions?

Editor's Rating 

Andres Industries has created this rugged and tough watertight impact proof case for fitting the iPad 2 or iPad 3. It has an industrial-looking design with external dimensions measuring at 10.5 x 8.3 x 1 inches. It is predominantly made of hard plastic, military-grade material, and incorporates rubber plugs for all device controls and features, as well as plastic hinge-clips to seal the case completely watertight .

The best part about the design is that the screen cover remains connected by a bottom hinge, making the process of fitting and removing the iPad easier than other cases with a completely detachable cover (ie. Gumdrop and Trident cases). Thankfully, A.I. placed a warning tag on the inside to ensure proper fitting, because the user's first instinct can be to insert the device into the bottom shell of the case body. The tablet must be placed into the upper shell first (screen cover side), fitting between 8 small foam pads that cushion the sides, and once its lowered into the bottom half of the case, six larger foam pads will cushion its backside. The flexible screen display foil is watertight, but considering the case’s intended purpose, it would be more impressive if the shield were also resistant to glare.

The bottom of the case features four rubber feet to prevent slipping on any surface, and can be removed/replaced with metal holders for connecting a shoulder or hand strap (sold separately). The backside also includes 4 brass nuts for compatible use with a RAM 202 mount (sold separately) on boats, cars, trucks, military and/or recreational vehicles. Additional accessory kits include plug and/or screen foil replacements, a watertight USB connector cable, and a quick snapper mount that allows the case to be easily removed without the use of tools.

            Sure, there are some more affordable rugged and tough cases to be had. But few can live up and/or match the Andres Industries case standards and overall performance. This is the best case scenario for the iPad user who seeks the ultimate in watertight and impact proof protection.
