Rated 5 out of 5 by iPad saver and maybe a job saver! I just had to say great product! I bought this case because of the protection I felt it gave me for my iPhone. Because it had saved my iPhone from the occasional drop. But I never thought it would be needed for more than the occasional drop. Boy was I wrong. The iPad was provided by work and in today's world where companies count every dollar, $600 could get you in serious trouble. Especially for carelessness. After using it for an safety audit I was leaving the job site and placed iPad on passenger side of hood of company jeep. The next thing I knew while accelerating to 60mph on expressway I heard a rattle on my hood and as I looked the iPad became airborne and rolled and flipped over and across the back of the jeep. I watched it from the rear view mirror as it tumbled down the expressway. I had to go 5 miles to loop back around hoping and praying it would be still there. It would be better to turn in a damaged iPad then to say I lost it. But to my surprise and delight as I walked up to it. I saw the screen on and was undamaged, I thanked God for answering my prayer. Now I am thanking otter box for a good product. Thanks Otter Box. It may not protect against all mishaps but It sure protected my iPad against at least 55mph tumble and crash. I would rather be found with it, then be with out it. Defender is a must have. I tried to contact company through email on their website but had to settle for this review. December 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Saved my iPad My three grand daughters have been pretty hard on my iPad with drops and hitting it to make it go faster and it has endured it all. The worst lick it took was when one of the girls took her new toy and basically shredded the screen protector with the tip of it. I just knew that my iPad was ruined but when I took it out of the case to survey the damage it was still in pristine condition. I have to replace the shell but I don't have to replace my iPad. Thank you Otterbox for making an exceptional product. November 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Saved my ipad Since dropping my iPad down a long flight of ancient stones in Taormina, Italy a few years ago, and nothing happening to it, I never take the defender off. I drop everything, so I have peace of mind now August 31, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by NOT LIFEPROOF! The otterbox that I had purchased did not protect regular wear and tear. My 45 lbs. son sat on it in the car and the iPad bent in half. The iPad is damaged to a point where I have to replace both Otterbox and iPad. The Otterbox screen shattered even when I had the shield on the iPad. The shell did bend in half and the iPad, which was inside all of the "protection" cases for the device, has more damage than the otterbox. July 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Otter Box Great product! Love the protection would like to see it in different mixture of colors or patterns. July 15, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love me some otterbox! When I gave my one year old, Jack, an IPad 1 back in 2009, I had no idea how right it was. I put it in a defender. After working for one of the major cell carriers for years I had seen exactly what could happen to a portable device without an Otterbox. Having Down Syndrome isn't easy, and Jack would get frustrated with his iPad and invariably chuck it off of his high chair. It got to the point where my hardwood floors are dinged and dented from that otterbox wrapped iPad getting bashed into them. You thought you got mad at slow internet speeds! Jack is 6 1/2 now. He knows his letters, numbers, colors, shapes, and is really figuring out how to read independently. He just graduated kindergarten and is looking forward to first grade adventures. I had to buy him a new iPad, as that old trusty version 1 just couldn't upgrade the IOS anymore. With it came a new Otterbox defender, ready for service! I just hope the floors can take it!

Screen Protection

Q: 
In what ways does this protect the screen? Is it basic scratch protection, a layer of plastic to prevent the screen from breaking, or something else? I once saw a video of an iPhone in an otterbox being put through a washer and dryer and surviving. I'm looking for similar with the iPad Air 1st gen. shatter protection for screen.
