The Griffin Survivor Case is a whole lot of case for a whole lot of money costing a whopping US$59.99. But if your pockets are deep and your life style is adventurous this is the case for you!
Have you ever owned an iPad mini case but thought you needed more protection? Then look no further because the Griffin Survivor Case is it. They have managed to put a lot of protection in a fairly lightweight casing that is slightly slimmer than some of its competitors. The case is meant to protect from dirt, sand, rain, shock, vibration and a host of other environmental factors. Needles to say it can take on being in my purse, care, suitcase, and anywhere else I put it.
The Griffin Survivor case is made up of two lairs and three pieces. The first lair is closest to the center; what is directly on your iPad mini is the shatter-resistant polycarbonate frame that is covered in a rugged, shock absorbing silicone. It is topped off with a built-in screen protector that snaps to the front.
There are hinged silicone plugs that close up the outside ports such as the camera, headphone jack, lighting connector plug, and the volume control mute switch. With everything snapped in tight and plugs are sealed your iPad mini is ready for almost anything. You can view videos and test results on their website www.griffintechnology.com/armored .
The forth and final piece to the case is the stand. It attaches to the left or right side of the case. Or you can take it off completely if you choose. I personally like the function of the stand, but find that it can come off too easily if you pull of the back of it just a little.
The case also has a very strong smell of kerosene that has not worn off in the two plus weeks I have been testing the case. Not too big of a deal but very annoying. Over all I love this case and I think you will too.
