If you’ve been good this year, you might be lucky enough to get one of the hottest gifts this holiday season; the iPad mini with Retina display or the iPad Air. Take our advice and protect those pricey gadgets with the Pelican ProGear Vault cases. Both cases are water-resistant, crush proof and expertly defend against wind-driven rain, dust, dirt, snow, and sand. (We know, we’ve tried the Vault case for the iPhone.) The Vault iPad Air and iPad mini (also fits the original iPad mini) can be purchased at PelicanProGear.com for $99.95 and $79.95, respectively.
Used by the military, each tablet case armors the device in various ways: closed, it prevents impact to the screen and, open, users can use the tablet without sacrificing protection. By fully rotating the cover, it functions as a stand that provides multiple viewing angles. Engineered with an interior to absorb impact forces, these tablet cases can handle any fumble, accident, or drop from up to four feet.
By the way, The Pelican ProGear Vault for Galaxy S4 will ship later this month. Featuring the same built-tough DNA and similar Vault features, it will survive a six-foot drop with ease due to its impact-absorbing elastomeric liner. It will be available for $59.95.
