Otterbox alternative

Hello,

Looking for an ipad 4 case with the following features:

- Substantial coverage, with all ports and buttons covered.
- Good shock protection.
- Cover with sleep wake feature.
- Integrated screen protection.
- Stand functionality.
- As far as looks are concerned, I'll say this, the Lunatik Taktik is the best looking iphone case I have seen. I wish they made an ipad version.

So far, the Otterbox defender is the only case I found that has all these features. All the other rugged cases (Griffin, Gumdrop, etc) seem to lack at least one feature or another. I already have a Defender, but was looking for a change when I upgrade from the ipad 2. Any ideas?

Except that the OtterBox for the iPad 2 does not have a cover with sleep/wake functionality. In fact, none of the rugged cases offer that. You can find rugged cases that do everything but offer a cover like what you want. Some have covers but the cases are so thick that any magenta would not work.

Actually I have the Otterbox Defender for iPad 2, and it does have the sleep/wake function. There is a little round magnet on the inside of the plastic lid. I can confirm it works great.
