Update 12/16/2013: Check out Siva's new roundup of rugged cases for the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display

With the introduction of the iPad mini last year, Apple once again changed the way we interact with mobile technology. Smaller and more portable than its more cumbersome older sibling, the iPad mini is a device designed to come with us wherever we may wander. As a result of the mini's superior portability, it's also far more likely to be in the line of fire.

A good, heavy-duty protective case can make the difference between a catastrophic, life-ending event for your iDevice and a mere bump in the road.
