New-Trent-Airbender-Gear-Patrol New Trent Airbender
You know the type: he hikes, he camps, he wades through rivers, he scales mountains. A real outdoorsman who likes to get away from it all, be one with nature, loves his iPad mini. Uses his iPad mini on cliffs and when he’s bathing in streams and when he’s digging up edible mushrooms. Good thing he’s got a water-resistant, dirt- and shock-proof, dual-layered-for-extra-protection hard case for his iPad mini. Good thing it’s got a wireless keyboard and a screen protector and its power and audio jacks are covered, too. $40
