Although this case was a little challenging to get on the iPad, once it was on, it was good to go. The overall design of the case is very nice as every nook and cranny has been accounted for and the case seems durable. The outer shell has a nice design which includes 2 different angles to prop up the iPad. My only complaint is the screen cover has a bit of an "oil slick" look to it if you have it at an angle. It's not extremely noticeable, but certainly can be seen. Luckily I haven't dropped it yet, so I can't vouch for it's durability, but it is nice to travel with as I don't have to worry about it being damaged if I put it in a bag!

Good, but not great
Screen protector stinks. A lot of watermark effects. In addition, it dulls the retina display a tiny bit. I just punched out the protector and installed Zagg HD and then use the otterbox...Read complete review
Screen protector stinks. A lot of watermark effects. In addition, it dulls the retina display a tiny bit. I just punched out the protector and installed Zagg HD and then use the otterbox case around it. The problem with doing above is the additional cost over an already expensive case!

Comment on this review
This is a great case for my iPad air 2. The stand that comes with it is a great touch. The one angle is amazing for typing and the other is great for movies or surfing the web! It gives me great protection, and that's why I bought the case. The only problem I'm seeming to have with it, the rubber material around the charging port and headphone jack is bending and won't stay back in its spot unless I push it in a couple times. To sum it up, Wonderful case Great design Great for people who need protection
A Great product
from Erie Colorado
It is a bit bulky considering the actual size and shape of the ipad mini, but to get the protection necessary the bulk at this time maybe necessary. I wish it came in more colors, as when I set it down, I want to be able to spot it across the room. I don't take it on road trips so I am not concerned about other people see it and stealing it. I wish the stand was attached to the unit, but it does make it much more bulky, on the other hand I am always walking away from the stand and have to go back for it.
from Denver, CO
I ordered this on a weekend and it arrived 4 days latter. Was a little difficult to figure out how to take the pieces apart but then was relatively easy to put back together. Should have cleaned the screen of the Air 2 before putting it together and had to take everything apart and put it back together again. Would prefer to have the hard cover attached and folding rather than snap-on. Even though it is heavy and defeats the purpose of the lightweight Air 2, it is well-made, feels solid, and protective.
I've been using Otterboxes on my iPhones for a while now and have never broken a phone yet - and they have dropped on concrete. The rubber was really stiff but I got everything put together. The one I had on my full size was not this stiff, but it was a full size iPad and this one is smaller... Fits in my purse which is the main reason I got the mini!
I love my Otterboxes
This is my first Otterbox for a tablet. Others were for phones and they are wonderful. I have had the same experience this time. The cover that also acts as a stand is exactly what I need. I used to change out tablet covers depending on what I was using it for. All ports line up perfectly, and, as usual, the Otterbox is very sturdy. I don't mind a little extra weight for the quality. One tiny problem...in places where the screen cover touches the screen (as opposed to sort of floating there), I can see colors, kind of like tiny oil slicks, and there is NO moisture inside the cover. Only a mild annoyance that I can live with.
Port Dimensions slightly off
I've owned 4 iPhone OtterBoxs in the past (and currently) and regardless of their ungainly appearance to some, and bulkiness I still love the things! This might be the most secure and best case I've had yet! Few small issues, but nothing I'm concerned at all about. Pros: Extremely solid build (better than previous OtterBoxs I've had) Still remains fairly thin (when not using the hard cover). Screen and home key covers have no issue at all with sensing properly. Not as ungainly in appearance and feel as I expected (and had in previous OtterBoxs). Extremely secure exterior mold! Cons: When the hard cover is attached on the rear, it becomes difficult to access the headphone, and power ports. Usually I have to take the hard cover off to access them (easier/faster sometimes). The port covers work border-line TOO well. Very secure fit, but almost too difficult to open/keep open. With the hard case attached to the rear, it creates and slightly annoying vibration when listening to the built-in speakers. This only occurs when holding it in your hand it seems, and with the hard case snapped on securely.
POOR DESIGN, POOR CONSTRUCTION
from Tucson, AZ
On/Off button is unusable. The stand part of the cover broke off after only a days use. The power plug is way to hard to get to.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Otterbox Ipad Air 2
I'm always a fan of Otterbox because of the quality of the product and the design. Part of the reason why I wait until it is available. I've tried other products but this fits perfectly. My only wish is Otterbox consider lowering the price a little bit and do something on the weight as part of improvement.
from Jacksonville Florida
I purchased a new iPad Air 2 back in November of last year. I singned up to receive the new otter box for this iPad, it was still under production. I've had otter boxes for my phones but never for an iPad. A couple of my friends recommended them highly, so I decided to get one. When it arrived, I read the instructions and it fitted perfectly. I Run 2 Trade Shows every year and I use 2 different squares to take money from customers. Well guess what, when I went stick the square In, the plastic piece on the otter box got in the way. There was no way either one worked, now I'm mad. So I had to take all apart, go purchase the plastic sheen that goes over the glass, so customers would not scratch the glass. That part worked, and I could only hope that someone would not drop it. The show is over and I will put it back in the otterbox, but in couple of months I'll have to do the same thing. This is the only flaw that I'm disappointed in.
