    From the specs it looks great, better than my Otterbox Defender. But the Survivor is available only for the iPad 2 from what I read on their website and I have the iPad 1 classic so I am out of luck. Good luck on your deployment... Watch you Six !

    Yeah, it looks nice for it's intended purpose although its not quite my taste. That could change if my designer case proves to be less functional than I hoped for. The price is certainly reasonable so you already have me beat and somewhat remorseful.:(

    Been waiting for mine for 3 weeks. Canceled it and bought the gumdrop. Should get it this week.

    Got my Survivor case about a week and a half ago. Here are my thoughts.

    * Does make the iPAD a lot heavier from the rubber part of the case
    * much harder to type because of the case part around the screen makes it tougher to hit the space bar, I keep hitting the letter N a lot
    * Durable. dropped ipad a couple of times and i did not worry a bit. Solid case
    * I like the built in stand, that also holds the unit on angle when on a table. Not so good for typing in your lap
    * No impact on the screen sensitivity, the protector is good and I have no issues with responsiveness
    * Port covers - not all of them are as tight fitting as I would like. Specifically the one covering the microphone at the top is pretty loose. I worry these will be loose at the wrong time in a rain storm and then the unit gets wet.

    Out of 5 stars I would give is 3.5. Solid case, but not perfect.

    Oh... it is really too bulky for me, the thickened silicon makes the sexy iPad stupid. :p

    Just got mine must agree with the weight but I quite like the solid feel , also agree about the microphone cover not fitting to tight. Aldosterone makes a few creaks and groans as I hold but overall I'm impressed will do the job I ask of it.

    Looks nice, wish it had a hard cover for the face when transporting or throwing in a bag. I had the Otterbox Defender but sold it because the front cover left portions in each corner of the screen exposed which defeats the purpose.
