We think it's a little bit of both. Simply put, the Griffin Survivor All-Terrain Case is the most protective case we've ever built. Tested and certified to meet or exceed US Department of Defense Standard 810F, Griffin's Survivor All-Terrain Military-Duty Case is designed from the inside out to protect your iPad 2 from extreme conditions … dirt, sand, rain, shock, vibration and a host of other environmental factors. Survivor All-Terrain is built on a shatter-resistant polycarbonate frame clad in rugged, shock absorbing silicone. A built-in screen protector seals your Multi-Touch display from the outside environment, while hinged plugs seal the dock connector, camera lens, headphone port, hold switch and volume controls. The included stand clips on, then folds open for landscape viewing and typing. Survivor All-Terrain is independently tested and verified to meet or exceed environmental testing standards for blown rain, blown dust and grit, vibration, shock, temperature and humidity.
