Developed with your active lifestyle in mind, this iPad case employs multi-layer technology built with high-quality materials to create a rock-solid protective solution. The inner shell of the iPad case is composed of high-impact polycarbonate and includes a built-in foam interior that delivers added shock absorption and protects the back of your new iPad from scratches. The rugged silicone outer-layer absorbs the impact from bumps and shocks while the textured exterior provides enhanced grip. The built-in screen protector prevents scratches, smudges and fingerprints from getting on your high-resolution screen. The integrated shield stand acts as a protective cover on the front or the back and doubles as a stand for typing or viewing. Magnets on the shield stand activate the new iPad's sleep mode when the cover is snapped on the front of the screen. The shield stand also allows for viewing in landscape and portrait mode. The Defender Series iPad case is perfect for those of us who are constantly on-the-go, have small children or are generally graceless with our personal electronics.
