Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product This is a great case. I have a 4 year old who uses my ipad for entertainment in the car. He and I are both tough on electronics. It has been great for protecting my ipad from drops. It was also easy to get my ipad into the case. July 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by What I needed My son (ASD) is on his 8th, that's right, 8th ipad. I tried everything since it is his most prized possession. When I heard about this product, I purchased it for his 7th. He is very hard on it and it broke, but I contacted Otterbox directly, and they were wonderful, professional, knowledgeable, understanding, and quickly sent a new one. After having an "important" talk with my son, he is treating it like gold. Thank you from a parent who needed help! July 26, 2014

A: 
I had this same problem. Go to the OtterBox web site. Comply with the necessary pics of your cover showing the mishap, also the numbers located on the inside of your case. Download all to the given department and you will receive a new one. It is as easy as that! There are clear instructions to guide you through this process. If you want, call them and the process can be done via the phone. They are a good Company and value their good rep, so going the distance to keep a valued customer is all in a days work, for them. Isn't that refreshing to hear in our all so modern age? Enjoy your new cover!

As long as it is within a year of purchase and you follow the directions for uploading picture evidence you shouldn't have any problem. They also keep you informed as to where your replacement is along the process too.

A: 
It will protect your Ipad in every way EXCEPT water damage. Water can pretty easily slip through the flex points where the charging port and headphone ports are.

The speaker has access to outside air, so it's still very listenable.

Otherwise, these things are really tough and can take tons of abuse of all kinds.

A: 
The Defender Series cases will definitely protect your iPad from from minor spills, but it is not waterproof! My daughters have spilled juice and milk on their iPads and I usually dry off the case as soon as possible and sometimes take the iPad out of the case to make sure no moisture got inside. So far so good! More than I can say for my MacBook Pro after my one daughter accidentally spilt water on it...

However I have an Otter Box Amour Series for my iPhone 5 and it is waterproof for up to 30 minutes at 6 feet! I haven't taken it swimming yet to test it out but my other daughter did drop it in the bathtub once and it survived! I'm just waiting for Otter Box to make these for my iPads and I'll be set!

Defender makes it water RESISTANT, NOT WATERPROOF. Have survived direct rain, drool, and wet backpack. No experience with spills though.

Sound quality is clear within case but not as loud as without case. To me, the protection is a trade off.

A: 
It is water and grime resistant. But it is not waterproof. In my experience it protects well from a reasonable drop height of about 3.5 feet.

The speakers are not coveted which allows the sound to flow out of the case.

A: 
Although the case is not rated as being waterproof, it sure helps if you do have a Defender case on your iPad. My iPad was dropped into a sink of water and was covered with water about 2 inches deep for around 20 seconds. Luckily, all the port covers on the Defender case were closed. Got it out of the water and pulled it out of the case. Found just a few drops of water inside the hard shell case. Used a hair dryer on all the areas of the iPad that might have been affected then left the iPad in a closed car in the sun all day (the iPad was not in direct sunlight). At the end of the day, I powered up the iPad and it worked just fine and is still working after 3 months. If my iPad had gone in the water with out the Defender case, there is no doubt that it would have been ruined instantly. In addition, it's been knocked off a desk and fallen out of my truck with NO damage. Now the iPad Defender case is a little heavy and bulky, but it protects your device. I have Defender cases on all my applicable devices.
