    What do you all think would be better, the defender or the ivyskin? The Ivyskin has a glass shield so you do not lose touch and a possible battery pack, while the otterbox is basically indestructable. I can't decide.

    I'm going with the ivyskin. Just waiting for it to become available. They pushed back the ship date once but it looks like it's supposed to be shipping by today. Once I get confirmation I'll most likely order one.

    I think the otterbox provides more protection but I'm more interested in the increased battery life of ivyskin and the touch-thru glass. Plus I heard the otterbox covers the light sensor.

    Also there are quite a few videos of Otterbox reviews and unboxing that may be helpful in your decision.

    Ok so I got the Otterbox Defender case in the mail Saturday. I must say this thing is really nice it fits great and makes it feel really tough. The screen protector was easy to install and work like its not even there . It is really easy to clean alot easier than the glass was. It does add quite a bit of weight to it but I liked that it made the IPad feel less delicate to me.The face cove that snaps doubles as a stand and that works flawlessly. My one and only complaint is really a big one the piece on the back to access the port is a mother to get off like really ten minuets trying to get it off each time. Over all I would still give it 4 stars
