iGear Unlimited

The Leather Portfolio G2 (all iPad models; $59) features a foldable cover with a magnetic closure that’s compatible with the iPad’s sleep/wake feature; the cover folds around to double as a convenient viewing or typing stand in landscape orientation.

LifeEdge

As its name suggests, the Waterproof (iPad 2, 3, and 4; £99) protects your tablet from unfortunate encounters with liquid elements, while still allowing you complete access to its every functionality, including screen, ports, cameras, buttons, and even audio.

The case, which comes in clear, black, or aqua, includes a convenient carrying strap and a stand for viewing in landscape orientation.

Macally

The Protective Case (iPad mini; $20) is made from a transparent-but-sturdy plastic material designed to protect your tablet while letting its industrial design shine through.

Nifty Spot

The Rubber Boy (iPad 2, 3, and 4; €50) is designed to keep your tablet safe while in the hands of a little one, with a kid-friendly design that’s both colorful and robust.

The case comes in green, pink, or blue.

Pelican Pro Gear

The 1065CC (all iPad models; $68) features a watertight gasket and an automatic purge valve to equalize pressure without letting any contaminants in at altitude.

Designed to withstand rigorous environments, the case provides plenty of padding and shock protection, and its easy-open latch is designed to remain shut under pressure and after impact.

STM

The Studio (iPad mini; $40) sports a slim hardshell with a soft, protective liner that keeps your iPad secure from bumps and scratches and offers an excellent grip.
