For those of you who are loathe to mess with the slick lines and thin profile of your iPad, you probably are going to want to buy an iPad hard case to cover and protect the back of your device. A hard case for the iPad not only protects it from dents, drops, and scratches, but it also adds a unique flair and style as well. You can express yourself and still protect your gadget without adding unnecessary bulk to this little gem of a tablet. Check out our roundup of iPad hard cases below…
A good hard case for the iPad will maintain a thin profile while offering a measure of protection to your tablet. It should also help improve your grip, whether with the fancy rubberized backing, or other kinds of texture since the last thing you want is to have it slip out of your hands! Hard cases are great because they provide instant access to the device without bothering with a portfolio cover. We do recommend that no matter what hard case you choose, you still cover the iPad with a Zagg invisibleSHIELD iPad screen protector to keep it in pristine condition no matter what. It’s that extra layer of scratch and dent protection that will make all the difference down the line. It’s also far and away better then the screen protectors included with these hard shell cases and is compatible with most anything you buy for your iPad.
If we were to suggest one particular iPad Hard Shell case it would without a doubt be the OtterBox Defender. See our in-depth hands-on review of the OtterBox Defender complete with loads of high resolution pictures!
So there’s a big enough selection of iPad hard cases to keep you guys and gals busy for a while. Remember that no matter what hard shell case or cover you end up getting, do yourself and your iPad a favor and get an invisibleSHIELD screen protector. We don’t keep saying that because they suck!
