Consisting of a back protective shell and a rubberized hard-plastic backer (complete with embedded kickstand) that piggybacks the shell, the Cooper Defender will certainly live up to the name in protecting the iPad from everyday incidents and mishaps.

- Cutouts for buttons, ports, speaker and rear-camera
- Rubberized hard plastic backing piece with embossed surface

The main selling point of Cooper Defender shell is of course its protective qualities. After all, how many tablet shells can wear the "rugged" label honestly? While any given tablet shell is touted for its protection with an exoskeletal fit over the device back, the Defender’s second rubberized piece brings all the advantages of this material and is excellent against drops.
The Defender’s rubber back is embossed with squares running along nearly the entire surface. This is not only a plus for protection – the tablet shell absorbs the shock of a drop nicely – but also noticeably increases the user’s grip on the device. Of note too is the embedded kickstand set in the exterior backer. It is adjustable for two viewing angles in landscape mode and snaps open/close with a satisfying click sound. The stand is inset into the rubber just enough so that any potential damage in a drop is nullified.
All in all, it’s difficult to imagine any tablet shell providing as much defense to the Apple iPad’s back and sides than the aptly-named Defender.
