      Overview

      As a high-end rugged case seeking to guarantee the maximum in protection, its not surprising that the iPad is clamped into the ProGear case with screws. This provides the tightest possible fit around the tablet to guarantee military graded drop protection.

      So what’s gained? Start with the exoskeleton effect brought by the newly-affixed shield of hard plastic and high-grade aluminum. The plastic/aluminum combo in the CE2180/CE3180 rugged case is certainly looks nice and offers good strength. The inside is protected with polysyllabically-named elastomeric copolymer rubber lining. It is touted to provide drop protection up to US military’s MIL-STD-810G standard, so there’s that.

      Unlike most military-level protective accessories, the Pelican ProGear rugged case's functionality is a top priority. A water-resistant membrane is included in the case to allow microphone and speaker use. Dragontrail glass lens cover protects the rear-facing camera. Finally the cover flips open into a hands-free stand for upright screen display.

      A must have

      This is a sturdy case and is great with the flip cover, as well as the cover for the cable and headphone sockets. The only problem I have with it is that the volume buttons are a bit stiff, although it is not a great issue. Deliver was on time as stated on the site. If you want a great all round case and need the protection then this is it.

      First Rate

      This has to be the best protective ipad mini case on the market, I work in the construction industry so you can imagine how much this case has to endure.

      I have dropped it twice and the case is hardly marked let along the ipad.

      The company supplying this are not UK based but you know what, that does not matter, they are quick and very friendly.

      Would recommend this 100%

      AWESOME!

      I ordered this because I expect a lot from Pelican. After all, they are a leader in equipment protection. They have not disappointed with the case here either! Great sturdy construction! It doesn't add much weight and it is easy to handle. I haven't dropped it yet, don't really intend to, but I feel secure knowing my iPad is in this case if a drop ever does occur. It is not as bulky as the otter either. Because it is a bit thinner, it fits well in my previously purchased stands, The case secures the ipad using 15 hex screws, 8 on the front, 7 on the back (3 of which are securing the wonderfully designed metal hinge assembly). This case moves the volume buttons from the side to the back, easy enough to get used to. The slide is protected but hard to reach, but since I don't really use it, it's not big deal.

      I was originally going to rate 4 stars. There is a lack of a screen protector. But after putting a screen guard on the ipad and then installing the ipad in the case, I noticed how nicely the rubber of the case seals the face of the I pad. When closed, another rubber seal on the cover completed the protection.

      There are a couple caveats if you are intending to purchase this:

      First, It does secure together using screws. This could be a hassle if you are wanting to quickly change from this to say a folio case.

      Second, I use an iRig HD. The included cable for this device does not fit through the case because it has a bigger lightning port head. I had to purchase a port…
