Tough iPad Mini Cases With Military-Grade Protection

If keeping your iPad mini protected at all costs is a number one priority on your list, then why not let Griffin and Ballistic show you what their latest cases have to offer. First on the list is Ballistic's pricy $60 Ballistic Tough Jacket Series case that features three layers of protection that includes extremely reinforced corners, a layer of silicone interior that helps absorb shock, a layer of impact-resistant hard plastic and a third shock absorbing polymer layer. It also comes with a removable hard plastic snap-on kickstand that can be snapped to the back of the case. Available in black, pink and white.

The Survivor case by Griffin on the other hand is one of our favorite rugged, military-duty cases made for Apple devices. The Survivor case for the iPad mini continues the turtle shell-like armored design that features a sealed built-in screen protector, shatter-resistant polycarbonate frame with thick silicone cladding that'll insure that your iPad mini is protected against drops, shock and impacts. Unlike the Ballistic Tough Jacket case, the Survivor's iconic integrated port covers provide a tight seal against rain, sand and dust to meet military standards. Griffin's iPad mini Survivor case will also set you back $60, but we think it's the better buy out of the two, respectively. Available only in black at this time.
