NewerTech NuGuard KX
Kinetic Energy X-Orbing Case Provides Security and Style in a Slender Design
X-ORBING PROTECTION
This patent pending design allows for protection against accidental drops, impacts and scratches with a lightweight and thin design versus the added bulk found in other more expensive cases that attempt to provide this level of protection!

The NuGuard KX has been Mil-Spec drop test certified by Quanta Laboratories to Mil-STD-810 U.S. Military standard for elite protection. OWC Larry also conducted an in-house drop test on a flight of stairs. The KX measures slightly over 1/3" (including the iPad) maintaining the streamlined design of the iPad mini.

The over-molding edge guard provides added screen edge protection without interfering with touch screen functionality. Unlike common military-impact case materials, KX uses state-of-the-art X-Orbing gel technology to absorb and evenly distribute kinetic energy for ultimate protection! Precision cutouts allow for full access to all ports and buttons with a unique cross hatch texture design on backside for added grip.

The NuGuard KX is the perfect complement to black or white iPad mini models.

Rating: 5/5 This is a good iPad case. September 18, 2017 I like this case. It is tight fitting and is easy to hold. It keeps the iPad Mini 2 from slipping in my hand. It also works well with the KX case-friendly screen protector.

I would recommend this item to a friend!

Rating: 5/5 GET IT! January 7, 2016 Yeah, perfect thing really. I have dropped mine from the roof (don't ask) and with this protecting it, it not only survives today , but still looks as if it is new!

Rating: 5/5 Awesome Protection May 27, 2015 I bought this for my iPad Mini 2 Retina to replace a cheap, decorative cover. I like that I can still palm the iPad with the cover on and it has a thick enough lip to protect the screen even though it does not have a screen cover. I've dropped the iPad a couple of times now, although nothing like the test videos and it has kept it looking like new. I only wish I had bought 2, one for me and one for my fiancé. I didn't because of the flat black color. I think she would appreciate a more feminine look but after seeing mine she does like it.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
