    otterbox type bump case for Pro?

    Does anyone know of a case that provides more protection for the pro that is not the leather folio type? I'm thinking more like the rugged rubber cases that people put on their kids ipads. I do home inspections and love my pro but I need better protection. Thanks! Curney
