    A smart case from Apple would do the trick, not the cheapest but very nice IMHO.

    I've been using one on my iPad 2 since, hmm, well I think since they first released them and it keeps my iPad perfectly safe......it gets stuffed in a bag while I'm travelling with lots of cables, plugs, etc and never once has it come open.

    Definitely get the Lifeproof case! It literally protects your iPad from dirt, mud, water, ice ... The lot. Feel free to be clumsy :p

    The two really best protection cases I know about are the Lifeproof and the Griffin Survivor both offer great shock protection the Survivor is lite rain and splash proof but not submerging under water proof and has a plastic screen cover. The lifeproof is sealed with O-Rings and is water proof can with stand submerging under water it does not have a see through screen cover but does come with a protection cover that must be removed to view the screen. Because of it's material design the Survivor is a larger package then the Lifproof, but both are able to withstand rough treatment and being dropped on a hard surface. amazon has the Griffin Survivor for $42 it's highly discounted also Amazon has the lifeproof at $97 have not found it to be discounted. Another small detail the Lifeproof is fairly simple to install and fits well on the iPad the Survivor take a little more doing to get installed but it fits really well on the iPad. Both cases are quality and will do a great job of protection but if you intend on taking your iPad swimming with you then it's the Lifeproof. Also no leather on either case.

    Doom Cookie,

    I am not Judy, but her husband.

    I just recently got Judy a new ipad4, and also the ZaggFolio with keyboard. Its fairly expensive, but if you spend $500 plus for an ipad, what's $77 more for good protection? The Zagg case seems to be quite sturdy, with a function that I do not understand. When you open the case and lift the ipad for use - it automatically turns it on.

    Pros: Very sturdy
    Auto on
    Looks nice
    Really nice keyboard (much better than the digital one)


    Cons: Heavy
    Price
    Hard to open (But there's a trick to that)


    If I had to buy one again - I would go for the ZaggFolio

    The trick for easy opening:

    With the case lying flat, top up, and the snap facing you - simply place your thumb on the bottom half, reach to the back and pull the top half towards you. Then it lifts up very easily. The nice thing about that is that it's ready to use, and hers opens to the page where it was shut down. I don't know it works, but with the ipad out of the case, it will not automatically start when lifted. In the case it starts up.

    The only item I see that would keep me from buying the "ZaggFolio" is as you already pointed out the weight, and myself would not want a keyboard attached all the time. Now if others do want a keyboard and it's added weight, then this is a great choice if it really give the protection needed.
