GBM Shortcut: OtterBox iPad Defender Series Case



The iPad is a lot of things, but one thing it clearly is not is rugged. OtterBox sent me an iPad Defender Series case and I’ve really enjoyed using it. In fact, I’ve only rarely removed it from my iPad since receiving it in the mail. This case adds a serious measure of durability to the iPad, which much too fragile in my opinion. Its large glass display and aluminum casing is just asking for trouble.

Here’s a quick video of me dropping the iPad on my patio. I also slid it down the sidewalk and dropped it onto my hardwood and tile floors to see what would happen. The good news is that my iPad is still in one piece. The bad news is that this case adds some serious bulk to the iPad. I posted a full review of the OtterBox iPad Defender Sereis Case over at

    I too have this case and been very happy so far… OtterBox was great to deal with and sent my case out fast.

    I use my ipad for work and your right Xavier it makes the ipad feel very durable(but a bit heavier) i can throw it into my tool bag and generally be pretty rough with it and not have to worry. Plus my 4 year old can play with it and not trash it.

    That case definitely prevents your iPad from scratches.
