Can an iPad survive a 60-foot drop? According to this video from G-Form, it can if it's inside an Extreme Portfolio case. The $90 Extreme Portfolio might be light and flexible, but it has an internal layer of polycarbonate on one side, as well as a layer of Poron XRD protective foam. The G-Form case absorbs over 90% of the energy from an impact, keeping your iPad safe. The case is water resistant and has an inside pocket for documents, too.

re: 10 iPad Cases Fit For Summer
Great set of case reviews. I've tried a couple already. One that I have come to like a lot when traveling in the summer is the iLoc Case. It's inexpensive and disposable but re-usable. I use it for my iPad around sunset surfing the web. Don't have to worry about getting sand in my iPad and saved me a couple times during high tide - you know those times when all of your stuff gets blanketed with water when you're looking for shells. I pick them up at http:\\www.ilocstore.com for just a couple dollars.

Pelican HardBack? It has a keyboard!!! Real die hard Apple fanbois don't converge a frdige with a toaster! Apple said that keyboards for a tablet are bad bad bad, so don't do it - not even when it turns your tablet into something useful.
