Logitech Big Bang Rugged Case For iPad Air
Announced last month, the Logitech Big Bang is a rugged case for the iPad Air and iPad mini. Three colors will be available, Super Fluro, Magma Red and Forged Graphite.
Logitech Big Bang Rugged Case for iPad Air will be retailing for S$139 and the Logitech Big Bang Rugged Case for iPad Mini will be retailing for S$119.
The Logitech Big Bang rugged case will protect your iPad from accidental drops, screen impact, bumps, scratches and spills thanks to its Essential Protection System (E.P.S).
The iPad holder and folio cover are reinforced with shock-absorbent material that helps dissipate the shock minimising the impact force and thus protecting iPad from drops and screen impact. The durable materials used helps to keep your iPad safe from accidental bumps and scratches. And the liquid repellent case makes spills easily wipeable.
The case exceeds Military Drop Standard (MIL STD 810 G) which specifies the height of the drop at 1.22m. The Logitech Big Bang has been drop tested up to 1.4m.
What is MIL-STD 810G?

The Logitech Big Bang itself weigh about 430g which is somewhat heavy considering the Moshi VersaKeyboard for iPad Air weighs 380g and the Apple iPad Air Smart Case weights 140g.
The only common use-case I can think of for using the Logitech Big Bang is when parents lend their kids their iPad and their kids tend to drop it or throw it around. In this situation, the Logitech Big Bang will be very useful. In fact, I think all parents that has an iPad should get this to protect it from their kids!
