Our engineers developed the Defender Series iPad mini case to create the most usable and protective solution possible. The inner shell of the iPad mini case is constructed from impact resistant polycarbonate that includes a padded-foam interior that has shock absorbing properties and protects the back of your iPad from scuffs and scrapes. A screen protector is built into the polycarbonate shell to protect against scratches without compromising sensitivity. The outer layer is made from rugged silicone and absorbs impact while the textured exterior provides added grip. A shield stand acts as a protective cover to either the front or back of the case and doubles as a stand for typing or viewing. The Defender Series is perfect for those that are on-the-go, have children or are generally clumsy. Enjoy your adventures with the compact and highly protective iPad mini case from OtterBox.
