If you are an outdoors person, you will want to make sure that you have the best protection against weather, water, and dirt for your iPad, especially if you plan to take pictures underwater or on the beach. There are quite a few brands of waterproof iPad cases, some of the best are LifeProof, OverBoard, and Aquapac.

LifeProof NÜÜD Case

LifeProof NUUD Case

If you are looking for a serious waterproof case for your iPad, the LifeProof’s NÜÜD case is for you! It was made following the 810G-51.6 military standards for protection, and according to LifeProof, it can handle water immersions up to 6.6 feet for an entire hour, drops from 4 feet, and exposure to dust, ice, and snow !

The great feature of this case is that it protects your iPad while allowing you to use almost all the functions your iPad. It will not keep you from playing your favorite games and posting your photos on social media, so it’s perfect to carry your iPad to the beach, to the pool or to the hot tub. You can even use the fingerprint scanner. On the back of this case there is an optical glass lens that is not only anti-reflective, but also allows you to take photos underwater or on the beach.

You can have this waterproof case for iPad in black or white in Amazon. It is compatible with your iPad 1/2/3/4, Air 1/2 and Pro 9.7″.

The cons? Maybe the price, which is a little bit high for those who only need basic protection for their iPad. And also the fact that the shoulder strap is sold separately.

OverBoard Waterproof Case

For those who don’t need to take pictures of the beach and only want storage and protection, the OverBoard iPad case is a good choice. This case will help to keep not only water out of your iPad, but also sand and mud. This case is much more like a pouch. Your iPad slides into the case and seals by using a slide seal system. It can be put underwater up to about 19 feet.

You can carry the OverBoard iPad case with a shoulder strap or through the hand loop located behind the case.

The OverBoard Waterproof case is made of soft silicone and thermoplastic polyurethane, which is known for its durability. This case gives you complete usage of your touchscreen, but you cannot take pictures or videos with it. It is great for just taking a stroll down the beach or a short swim in the ocean.

AquaPac Waterproof Case

Another iPad case that is a really good value is the AquaPac’s waterproof case. It is a very strong and sturdy case that will help you to protect your iPad. You can also throw in your belongings that you usually take with you to the beach or river. The AquaPac has an AquaClip seal that uses quite a few different levers for extra protection. These levers help you to control the open and close functions of the case.

This is another iPad case that comes with a shoulder strap to help you better carry your equipment. This case floats and is completely submersible. It does allow you to continue using your touchscreen fully, but you cannot take pictures or videos with it.

There are different versions of the case: iPad 1/2/3/4, Air 1/2 and Pro 9.7″iPad Mini,  and iPad Pro 12.9″

So, which is the best waterproof case ?

It is very important to protect your property and your iPad is part of that. If you are trying to take pictures and videos while you are at the beach, it is best to get a case like the NUUD case. All of these cases are a great deal, but it boils down to what functions you need when you are near water.
