The case seriously has EVERYTHING. I have never had anything this sturdy on any of my devices before. I felt so secure with my iPad in this case that I had no problem subjecting it to the following tests (seriously, I wasn't even worried -- and this is a 64 gb iPad - I feel like it cost the world and I can't afford another one right now!):
iPad as Coaster:
Oops! I spilled my water!
Water on this thick, plastic screen cover is *so* not a big deal.
Normally, my dog eyeing my iPad (which is about to fall off the couch) would make me nervous. Not anymore!
In the past, this scene would have made me furious...but not anymore :-D
Okay, I'll admit that I don't really use my iPad as a coaster, but I do use it for school all the time, and I do have it around drinks all the time. I used to live in terror that something might happen to it, but I absolutely don't anymore. I also don't worry about throwing it in my bag to go somewhere or about leaving it on the coach where it could get knocked off. The Kraken A.M.S. case is *that* sturdy.
The case is easy to put it on. It comes in three pieces which snap together, providing a cushioned and dust/waterproof environment. It is certainly more complex in construction (but not in application) than any case I have ever seen. You have faith in it from the moment you get it out of the box.
The Kraken A.M.S. case costs $69.95, which is quite comparable to other such cases, and is very reasonable when you think about how much your iPad costs to replace! I would absolutely consider Trident Case for my other devices (there are a total of 7 Kindle Fires in my family, for instance). I have complete faith in the device preservation power of this brand.
