With all the different styles, color combinations, and all-around ruggedness, it can be tough to pick out the perfect heavy-duty case for your iPad. Personally, we love the look and feel of the Armera Rugged Lightweight Rugged Silicone case; this one is extra protective against drops and falls.

The design of the Shellbox case is also on-point with a super slim profile, as well as highly-rated shockproof and waterproof features. And for extra screen protection, look into the DUNNO full-body case, which comes with a handy screen cover. Gah! So many options!
