I use my iPad constantly and this case was pretty darn cool. Snaps right on. I didn't use it to store things on the back, but with my hand threaded through, it made it pretty much impossible to drop.
Wouldn't recommend for kids as it doesn't provide much drop protection and no screen protection. It does, however, have an interesting feature. It is low profile enough to keep it in a portfolio case (the kind with elastic in each corner) to protect from drops and the screen. It really worked for me and I would buy again.
