Re: Best Waterproof IPad Case?

Got a LifeProof case aswell. The 3.5 mm special seal plug broke first time I screwed it in the case. The case Got cracks in every corner but stills hold together. How ever its the best case I tried, as you touch the screen directly, Not through some silicon cover.

Re: Best Waterproof IPad Case?

I've had a Lifeproof nuud case on my Ipad Air for almost a year, it works great in every way. Easy access to all the controls and plug in ports. While on the boat during sailing days, it wears the Lifeproof lifejacket. The only thing, which isn't really a problem, is that you'll need to put the ipad in standby mode via a different method other than pushing the button on top. Easy to get used to doing it. Works much better than my old zip lock bag.

I have an extra Lifeproof case and lifejacket for ipad 2,3,4 for sale. I purchased them by accident for an original Ipad. The 2,3,4 case won't fit the IPad Air or iPad 1. If interested, send me a pm, the items are currently on ebay under kenomac priced under $47 brand new.

That's interesting. I had just the opposite experience. I bought a cover for my iPad Air Nuud case. This cover is a terribly designed product, does not fit well, is heavy, and the magnets are in the wrong position to activate the iPad's magnetic latches.

I mean, a truly awful product - don't buy the iPad Air Nuud cover (the case itself is fantastic, and the covers for the earlier iPads and the iPad mini work and fit just fine).

So I wrote them and told them what an awful product this is, that it should be pulled from distribution and they should apologize to those customers who bought it (I'm not the only one - the web is full of people complaining about this specific product).

They immediately responded to me and said they were sending me another one with no need to return the old one. I responded to that by telling them not to bother unless there was a complete redesign because the current design will never work on the case. They wrote back and said they would send me another case free of charge with no need to return the old one.

I told them again not to bother because I had no way of receiving it, but they had already shipped it all. Now I have two of these - one here and one 3,000 miles away

So maybe this was bad service in a way, but at least they were responsive.

Re: Best Waterproof IPad Case?

I use a new 1 gallon zip lock bag each trip. After the sail I use the bag to clean up after the dogs
