The best iPad Air cases are a must-have for any Apple product owner. However careful you may be, the risks of dropping, scratching, or otherwise damaging your expensive tablet can sometimes be unavoidable. Not to mention what accidents children, animals, or other grownups might have in its presence. 

It's not just about protection. The best iPad Air cases can look pretty darn cool, too, and usually include a stand for placing the tablet at a comfortable viewing angle, especially handy if you plan on watching movies on the train. Some iPad Air cases even come included with a keyboard and/or trackpad, essentially turning your iPad Air device into a laptop in one fell swoop.
