    I have to say I am highly impressed with the Gumdrop Drop Series, Military Edition iPad 2 case I recently received. Here- http://www.gumdropcases.com/military-edition-ipad-2-case.html
    This case is pretty much everything I could realistically want from a case for the iPad 2- it covers all the ports and the outside with thick, beefy silicone. Beneath that is a snap on hard shell AND a SNAP-ON screen protector.

    It came packed nicely in a plastic box with a slide over sleeve.

    Interesting note on back here:
    [​IMG] I am assuming it allows easy identification and verification that this is indeed a legitimate iPad 2 device.
    Here are a couple of vanity shots next to another of my favorite errr... recreational devices:

    Anyway, I highly recommend this case.

    That looks great. Too bad I'm stuck with an iPad 1. :(

    The snap on screen protector is intriguing, is the screen still sensitive enough, etc.?

    Oh yeah, like it isn't even there. As a matter of fact, I have a screen protector under the snap on screen protector and it works flawlessly. The snap on one is purely optional also; if you don't want anything over your screen you can leave it off.

    The pattern on the back of the case is incredible!

    Kind of like an Otterbox that I have for my HTC EVO 3D... Believe me, you don't have to ever worry if you drop your iPad...

    I wonder if it would still fit in the main compartment of my Lunada...looks nice so it would be great if it did.

    Yeah, it's like wrapping your iPad in an offroad tire. Looks tough as woodpecker lips.

    The Otterbox Defender for the iPad 2 sucks. It doesn't even have a built in screen protector and leaves the corners exposed. I had one and promptly returned it prior to getting the Gumdrop case.

    +1 :D

    I have the same case for my Asus Transformer TF101. It is tough & all ports are covered. It adds just a tad of bulk to my device. Also, there is just a smidgen of loss of sensitivity for the touch screen (it feels like there is a millimeter or two between the screen protector and the screen itself); it took some time to adapt to it but certainly not a deal breaker for me. Highly recommend.

    I have the exact same. Pleased with it so far. Probably not as tough as the G-Form but infinitely more usable.


    Best regards, Hawk

    Pelican 1075 here....because I've never been accused of being graceful....plus it gives me a place for the excellent Apple keyboard...hate trying to use on-screen keyboards.

    Yep, also have a Gumdrop for my IPad 2. My only complaint: the "military green" is too light. I expected more like an olive drab color. I regret that didn't just get the black.

    Just curious... Do any of you have issues with the silicone covering staying on the plastic part of the case? I wanted to pick one of these up but I used to have an Otterbox where I was constantly having to put the silicone back on cause it would stretch out and not stick to the case very well.

    Same here; but either way, the choice was intentional...I know it probably seems a bit silly...but it was a symbol of support for our local Army Reserve unit that is deployed.

    Nope...stays in place even with constant sliding in/out of the rear of my pack. I've tried intentionally gripping it in such a way, that typically would cause the silicone of a case to peel back. It still stayed in place.

    Wow, If that's the case I might have to pick some of these up when I get my Amazon rewards card points charged back up :p
