Keeping your tablet device safe is important, no doubt about that, but most of the current accessories are way too bulky if you want ruggedness. Unfortunately very few case makers out there understand the importance of combining good looks with protection and functionality. Additionally the latest problem seems to be the use of colors, as if the ‘90s are everything is now boasting acid colors, and is sparkling and shining. Let’s take a closer look.
The iPad Air gets a brand new rugged tablet case from Griffin – the Survivor Play.

The unique design with a double wedge provides users with a tight two-handed grip on the case.
