The LifeProof iPhone case really works to protect an iPhone. I know this is not an iPad tool but it is worth mentioning that it does hold up under some pretty severe conditions. I just completed a 17 mile hike down Zion National Park Narrows. Most of the time we were wading in waist to knee deep water but on occasion you do trip on slippery boulders. My pack went into the water five times and my phone is fine. I, on the other hand, am very sore. Good product but expensive $80.
