For D’s birthday I treated him to an iPad Air (super brownie points for that one!) so Urban Armor Gear offered to send him an iPad case* to keep it protected from the little fella. The case retails at $49.95 which is approximately £38 (at the moment).

The case features a feather-light composite construction and an impact resistant soft core to keep it protected from scratches. It has even met military drop-test standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6), which means nothing to me but sounds fairly impressive. It has oversized tactile buttons and a water resistant grip material. This has proved very useful when Lucas has spilt his drink next to it! There are easy access to touchscreen and ports and a smart cover. The frogskin technology grip skin makes it excellent for Lucas to hold whilst watching KidloLand.

When I ordered the case, as impressed as I was with all this information, I did wonder whether it would be bulky to be so protective. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived, it is very slim and smart looking. It wouldn’t look out of place in a business meeting or when on a site visit so it is perfect for D at work.

I would definitely recommend Urban Armor Gear and think the price is reasonable for what you get, when you spend over £300 on a tablet, you want it thoroughly protected and that is exactly what you get with this case. They also do cases for other branded tablets and phones. The only thing I would want is more choices in colours as I wouldn’t chose black for myself, luckily it is D’s favourite colour x

    It’s good to know that even if it looks bulky it is actually slim. I don’t have an Ipad but if i had I would consider getting a good protective case, as I am clumsy and I would probably drop it at some point.

    I think it’s great that it is impact resistant, you certainly need that with kids (and husbands!)

    My nan would love this, she’s always moaning about her ipad and how it’s hard to hold. This one looks great.

    Brilliant. Every one of us has had a phone / tablet damaged. Cases like this are essential!

    This case sounds brilliant for toddlers, my little girl is so clumsy with the ipad. This would be perfect for her.
