This case for iPad mini 4 really does the job. I tried a few test drops tentatively, but the iPad remained protected and the case was not damaged either. This is probably due to the hard rubber quality of the case, surrounded by a hard outside portion on the back. This allows the case to move so it doesn't shatter on impact, but still protects your iPad. This case features raised rubber buttons over the power and volume buttons to allow you access to them while still protecting them.
I was really impressed with the look of this case, it looks much nicer in person than in the picture, the gunmetal gray is a lovely, shimmery grey. This case has a rugged, masculine look with cool texture details and flipstand to allow hands free operation. The case fits really snugly so you have to push quite hard to get it on the iPad, but in my opinion that just means it's better protected. Looks great and works great.
