Griffin's Super-Strong Survivor Case Will Ship For iPad Air From Nov. 1

October 23, 2013
Griffin's Survivor case is ready for the new iPad Air, and will ship to customers from Nov. 1, the case-maker announced recently. As such, the Survivor for iPad Air case, which promises to offer complete and total protection against "dirt, sand, rain, shock, vibration, and a host of other environmental factors," can be preordered online for $79.99. Customers can also register for stock updates, and a total of seven different colors are available to choose from. If you're planning on "going wild" with your new iPad and need absolute protection, look no further. Here's a list of the Survivor's impressive features, as outlined at the product's website:
  • Independently tested to meet conditions outlined in US Department of Defense MIL-STD-810
  • Integral Display shield deflects wind and rain (Test: up to 200 mm/hr for 1 hour)
  • Rigid internal frame protects against shocks and drops (Test: drop on flat concrete surface from 6'/1.8 m)
  • Sealed ports block blown sand and dust (up to 18 m/sec for 1 hour)
  • Silicone cladding blocks vibration (18 hrs at 20 to 2000 Hz)
  • Includes multi-position workstand
Of course, Griffin's updated case is only compatible with the iPad Air, which features a brand new design that brings the 9.7-inch tablet in line with the appearance of Apple's iPad mini. But worry not, because a selection of Survivor cases are available for Apple's other iDevices, too. For more information on the Survivor case series, including test results, head over to Griffin's website. As mentioned, Griffin's Survivor for iPad Air can be preordered online for $79.99. If you're looking for more minimalistic protection for your new iPad, however, Apple has updated its Smart Covers and Smart Cases (here's our hands-on article).
