Now, having learned the hard way many times, I carry a special waterproof pack and I outfit most of my gear in hardshell cases where possible, as well as in waterproof sacks, because you truly never know when disaster might strike. Every hard drive is stored in a waterproof sack, every device is stored in a shockproof, waterproof case, as is my laptop and tablet. I’ve lost precious images that were never seen by another human, because of a freak accident. It happens, and it sucks, and it’s heartbreaking.
Now-a-days, I travel not harder but smarter. One of my favorite companies is the famed Otterbox, who specializes in some of the best hardshell cases in the world for all sorts of devices. I recently reached out to Otterbox to feature their UnlimitEd Hardshell case for the iPad (5th and 6th generation), which is engineered to meet the unique requirements of K-12 classrooms. So if their case can survive violent drops, perhaps being thrown, juice being spilled on it, and whatever else a poor tablet can be subjected to by children, then I’d say that’s a damn good place to start.
Otterbox’s UnlimitEd case is very slim and snug fitting, allowing for ergonomic use of the tablet, without bulking up the sides, nor the weight of the overall device. It’s clear so you can see clearly through to the screen as well as through to the back of the tablet. You can throw the tablet in a backpack and not have a second worry about it.
