This is a robust case and the clip-on cover is a piece of great design, especially as it conveniently clips onto the back during use. I was dubious, but it does also work well as a stand; both for typing and for viewing. Sure, it bulks out your sleek iPad by 100% or more, but if you were bothered about that you wouldn't be looking at a case like this - it's already saved mine from potential damage after a child-induced two-foot fall.
It's not cheap, but worth every penny. Following the advice of another reviewer, I too removed the plastic screen protector - it's thick plastic, but it ain't gonna stop the screen smashing, and if the case gets a soaking there are plenty of other ways liquid can get in. Having used a matte MediaDevil screen protector for my phone, I chose the iPad version
- I suspect a Retina edition will be released soon as it does seem to dull the amazing screen a little, but the texture provides a positive feedback when using a stylus on the screen and has scratched slightly, telling me I've saved some damage to the screen itself!
