iPads are becoming a popular piece of equipment for military personnel, special ops, policemen, and other such occupations.  With their slim, lightweight design and multiple functions, they are both convenient and extremely useful.

The day when an iPad is standard-issue for the men and women of law enforcement is fast approaching.  These occupations can be rigorous, and the last thing you want is for your iPad to loosely jostle around inside your backpack.  That is why having a military-grade iPad case is so important to the safety of your tablet.  To help you learn what’s available, we have compiled a list of 8 awesome military-grade iPad cases for your perusal.

#1: CPgear Tactical iPad Case

Tactical Ipad Case from CPgear

This case has more pockets than you can imagine.  Not only will it securely hold your iPad thanks to a thick lining of foam throughout the entire case, it was also designed to hold maps, pens, cell phone, small tools, badges, and a number of other items, depending on your needs.  Versatility that’s hard to beat.

#2: Flying Circle Bags Tactical iPad Cover


Versatility and convenience are the primary features of this cover. Want to use your iPad without removing it from the case? Check. Want to do the same with the tablet’s camera? Check. In addition to these features, this cover offers ample padding, plus solid construction that’s built to last.

#3: Tactical Use Only iPad Case

When in use, the iPad fits in an accessible pocket that allows you access to its screen and camera, while preventing damage thanks to a protective cover. Once you’ve finished with it, simply slide the iPad into the padded area and you’re good to go. And don’t forget about the MOLLE-enabled backing, which allows for the attachment to other MOLLE-equipped accessories.

#4: Pelican Hardback Case


Ever wanted to dunk your iPad into a pool of water? Okay, maybe you haven’t. But with a Pelican hardback case, you might be tempted. These cases are nothing short of amazing. Watertight, dust-proof, and crush-proof, they are built to take a licking and keep on ticking. And there’s even enough storage space for a number of accessories.

#5: Hazard 4 Launch Pad – Tactical iPad Sleeve

These look more like an attache case than a place to hold your tablet. Their stylish look will not go unnoticed, even if you choose to have one in camouflage. The back surface is covered with MOLLE (PALS) modular webbing, which will allow you to add a variety of pouches, both big and small, to the surface of the sleeve, or to be attached to a rucksack or other MOLLE-capable system.

#6: Otterbox iPad Case


For those on the go, this case will protect your iPad while allowing its functionality to remain intact. The silicone exterior is perfectly fitted for the iPad, and the interior padding provides additional protection. A built-in screen shield will prevent scratches, and the case allows the iPad to be displayed in both portrait and landscape modes.

#7: M-Tac Tablet Case


While this specific case must be accompanied with a bi-fold tablet cover, the interior thick foam and exterior hard shell more than makes up for it.  The superb stitching ensures that this case will weather the storm no matter what type of operation you might be in for.

#8: S.O. Tech – iPad Carry Pouch


This versatile pouch is perfect for someone who wants simplistic design combined with rugged construction.  Featuring pouches for all of your accessories (including a stylus pen holder) and a reusable cleaning cloth for removing smudges and fingerprints from your screen, this padded case will keep your iPad or tablet safe.
