Arms akimbo

New iPad releases always mean a flood of new cases. Which means we've got a second iPad-case roundup this week, full of models to cover all kinds of environments, fashion tastes, and sizes.

Griffin Technology

The Survivor (iPad Air; $80) is designed to meet—and exceed—military standards of durability and protection, and yet it manages to sport a cool look. It even comes with an external frame for holding your tablet when viewing a movie.

The Survivor comes in a variety of colors, including black (with various highlights), blue, and pink.

Grove

The Wood Smart Case (iPad Air and iPad mini; $79 to $99) is handcrafted from bamboo and maple for a warm, natural look and feel.

The front cover flips around to support your tablet in three viewing and typing positions, and uses rare-earth magnets to stay closed and keep everything safe during transport.

Gumdrop

The Drop Tech Series (iPad Air; $60) covers your tablet head to toe with a robust, shock-absorbent cocoon of safety that keeps it safe even in the most demanding environments.

It comes in black/black, black/red, or army green.

Lunatik

The Flak Jacket (iPad mini; $50) is an ultraslim, lightweight sleeve that keeps your iPad safe and sound inside a three-dimensional, polyurethane skin.

The Flak Jacket comes in black, aqua, and an unapologetically hot pink.

M-Edge

The Stealth Pro Keyboard (all iPad and iPad mini models; $80 to $100) incorporates a rechargeable Bluetooth keyboard into a folio-style case. A nifty design allows the case to prop up your tablet at virtually any angle.

Available in black, the case also includes a magnetic closure strap, a stylus loop, and storage for several cards.

NewTrent

The Airbender 2.0 (iPad Air; $55) is a high-quality, clamshell case that incorporates a rechargeable wireless keyboard. A special design allows you to prop up your tablet at virtually any angle—the stand even detaches from the keyboard for a more-ergonomic setup.

The Airbender comes in black and is compatible with the iPad Air’s magnetic sleep/wake feature.

OtterBox

The Defender Series (iPad mini; $70) features exceptional protection for your tablet thanks to a rugged, multi-layer construction that holds up to all kinds of environments—from a toddler’s room to a construction site.

The case is available in black, white/grey or white/purple.

STM

The Studio (iPad Air; $45) is a folio-style case made from a rigid, polycarbonate frame with a soft lining that protects from bumps and scratches.

The case comes in red, black, green, or purple, and its cover, which is compatible with the iPad Air’s magnetic sleep/wake feature, folds around to double as a viewing or typing stand in landscape orientation.
