The black iPad mini Defender Case from Otterbox provides maximum three-layered protection to your tablet. That's why it's called the Defender-Otterbox's strongest series of case. Whether from bumps, dust, scratches or disastrous drops, this impact-resistant case will protect your investment and keep it safe from the disasters that occasionally happen.

This is a very durable polycarbonate casing that is covered by a rugged silicone skin and further guarded on the inside by a padded foam layer where your iPad mini rests. The silicone also helps provide a firmer grip. The built-in screen protector keeps your screen free from dirt, dust, fingerprints and other contaminants but never interferes with its functionality.

Built into the Defender is a very handy pop-up stand that can be used in either horizontal or vertical format. This will make web surfing, video viewing or typing more comfortable. Overall, the case is designed for superb shock-absorption. Silicone plug covers also help keep dust out of the ports. The case includes a one-year warranty against manufacturer's defects from Otterbox.

      Comments about Otter Box iPad mini Defender Case (Black):

      The Defender Case is really good for certain things. We find it invaluable in the office, where many people are handling the iPad. Personal use wouldn't require such a heavy duty case though.

      Easy to put on and effective. I've already dropped my iPad a couple of times and haven't had to think twice about it. Well mad product.

          Comments about Otter Box iPad mini Defender Case (Black):

          We bought three of these Otter Boxes for the iPad Mini to support a video production class at a camp for kids with Type 1 Diabetes. The class has about 15 kids in it and we decided that we would shoot, edit and produce videos this year on iPad Mini's. Unfortunately, the little Mini's are slippery and we needed some protection. We got it. These Defender Cases are awesome - without them, the chances of a broken panel or some other calamity would be pretty high - with the Defender cases, the chances are almost nil.Great construction quality - easy to put together - self explanatory in operation. These are quite literally the cream of the crop. Are they pricey? No - not compared to replacing a $400 tablet.
