Rated 1 out of 5 by 1 year only I bought a defender series iPad cover and it literally lasted one year. I use my iPad everyday, but it literally fell to pieces. The hard plastic holds up, but the rubber around it will not last. You can buy (yes, buy) a replacement part, but for the cost, I would buy a liefproof case. July 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by How Great OtterBox Is I have an iPad mini Otterbox defender series. I take my iPad everywhere and my Otterbox goes there as we'll. From dropping 4 foot to kicking out of the car on cement. This case will definitely help you keep your device fully protected. I got an iPod had it one day and cracked the screen I got my iPad put it in an Otterbox and I have had it about 2 to 3 years and it doesn't even have a scratch on it. I will defiantly recommend someone other than me to use Otterbox. June 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The product is amazing. Really protect the product. May 11, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great case with one major flaw I have three otterbox cases-- one defender series for iPhone 5s and two for my kid's ipad mini. I love all of them--style, protection they offer, the feel in my hand... What I do not like is how easily scratchable the front screen for the ipad case was. Even with most gentle use. And they are very expensive to replace them as often as the need arises. And the screen cover can't be replaced with some other cheaper brand because the front cover is a solid piece with the whole thing. So, every time there is a scratch that bothers you, get ready to buy the whole case again. February 21, 2014

A: 
Not real heavy, just bulky. You can leave it behind, but it will only protect from scratches. The rubber part or sleeve comes apart after a few months. My lasted exactly 12, but I used the hard cover every time.

A: 
It's still pretty heavy. The screen protector is not very thick so I would recommend using the cover while traveling, but that is a personal choice. You can leave it behind, however.

“I threw the iPad mini in the case against the wall, and the bezel of the case was able to absorb the impact to prevent the screen from shattering.” - TabletPC Review
