There’s little worse than coming home with a new iPad on the very first day it’s available, only to find your editor has suddenly and immediately re-assigned you to cover raging tropical storms on the Yucatán Peninsula (happens all the time). Or something.
Fear not, adventurer person, Griffin has announced their ruggedized, military-spec’d Survivor case will be available to protect the new iPad Air the same day you can buy it from an Apple Store.
The heavily rubberized, sealed, water-and-dust-resistant $80 case also comes with a flip-out stand. Griffin says they designed and tested it to “meet or exceed US Department of Defense Standard 810F,” which translates to “this is ridiculously over-engineered for your pansy-assed daily routine, even if you really are a journalist headed for the Yucatan.”
