iPad Pros go everywhere, not just classrooms and offices. The Zagg Rugged Book Go was designed to protect this professional-grade iOS slate through somewhat harsher conditions.

After being unveiled at CES, Zagg’s latest keyboard folio is available now exclusively for the 11-inch version of Apple’s professional tablet.

Zagg Rugged Book Go lives up to its name

The smaller version of the 2018 iPad Pro is wrapped in a TPU case that can survive drops from up to 6.6 feet. There’s a slot for the Apple Pencil 2 built in. A kickstand on the back supports that tablet at a variety of angles.

The other half of the Rugged Book Go is a removable keyboard that does double-duty as a screen protector. The laptop-style keys are backlit.

Zagg just put this keyboard case up on offer on its website. It debuted at $149.99.

As noted, the Rugged Book Go is only available for the 11-inch iPad Pro. There isn’t a version for the 12.9-inch version of this iOS tablet. Of course, there are plenty of other rugged folio cases that are compatible with the larger model, like the OtterBox Symmetry Series 360 and the UAG Metropolis.
