    Best case for ipad 2?

    After reading the thread about cracked iPads I'm thinking I need a better case. The one I have is a smart screen with a back cover.the iPad basically slides into a folder type thing and closes with the smart cover, not much padding if it were to hit the ground. Maybe something like an " other box" case? Haven't even looked to see if they make them for iPads ?

    The Otterbox line of cases is indeed offered in versions to fit the iPad 2.

    I compared the otter box and the Griffin Survivor. I went with the survivor, it's better constructed IMO!

    Hi! Just bought one from amazon from technet...love it. Protects the whole ipad2 and it is as bulky as a smart cover. 5 stars

    Bought a tough jacket from Ballistic Case for $55 bucks using a code. If I dropped my IPad with this case I wouldn't freak out. It protects the device very well. The outer layer can be taken off and placed over the screen.

    Thanks for the info on the griffin survivor cases. I was reading some reviews of the otter box cases and a lot of people were not happy with them for whatever reason.. I'm going to check the griffin ones out- thanks!

    You might be interested in cases by this company:

    Extreme Portfolio

    They have videos where they, for instance, toss an iPad in their case from 60 feet in the air onto the ground, head to head with what looks like an Otterbox, which shatters.

    I've got one of their netbook sleeves, but haven't driven a car over it, hammered it, dropped a bowling ball on it, etc., (with gadgets inside) like they show on other videos. The case I have weighs next to nothing, which I like. I received an Otterbox as a gift and it weighed a ton, IMO. I returned it.

    I still like my CaseCrown bold. Its holding up great thus far. Its lightweight, fairly sturdy, inexpensive, and looks cool.
