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: 4/5 Solid protection June 18, 2016 This definitely protects my iPad Air. It has a tactile surface that makes it easy to grasp and reduces chances of dropping the iPad. The only downside is the thickness and weight. The advantages of the iPad Air are its light weight and thinness. This doubles the weight and triples the thickness. Not sure if I will keep it or search for a thinner, lighter alternative.

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.

Rating: 5/5 So far So Good. January 10, 2015 I have not dropped the iPad Air yet so not truly tested. It fits good and snug and all the switches work and ports are accessible. The back side is much thicker than I expected. But around the edges it is not to thick ... about what I expected. The grip is good and smooth and it feels comfortable in my hands. It still fits my HiRise Deluxe and I'm happy about that. I am very happy with my purchase so far.

Rating: 4/5 Almost perfect May 1, 2014 I purchased this case because I purchased the iPhone cover first and really like it. Covers the case perfectly with all the holes lining up perfectly. My only gripes are because it follows the rounded edge shape of the iPad Air perfectly, holding the case by the edge feels as the case wants to slip out of your hand. A grove or raised bead around the edge would help. More colors and a built in stand would make this case perfect. But it dose it's job and I reccemend it.

Rating: 5/5 Light and well formed April 9, 2014 Fits the iPAD Air very well, some slight play at the sides but nothing to mark a star down for. doesn't add a lot of extra weight and feels good in the hand. Optional screen cover available. Simple to install and looks good. Pity there was a lack of colors available but maybe in the future.

Rating: 5/5 Great protection for small size February 27, 2014 The video convinced me that this iPad Air protector would protect my iPad from shattering despite the small size. However, I have yet to drop the iPad to test its protective strength.

Rating: 5/5 Great Protection November 27, 2013 Fully wraps around the iPad Air. Power and volume buttons are still very easy to work. The incipio case I had for my iPad 3rd gen had similar push through buttons but they were stiff and not nearly as easy to use.

Can't go wrong with this case. It gives some needed 'bulk' to the iPad Air, without much weight so you have something substantial to hold on to.
