If you've been looking for the toughest case for your iPad, G-Form is making one that may just be at the top of the pile. After being dropped from more than 1,300 feet, the iPad protected by a G-Form case lives to be tapped another day.

The G-Form sleeve and folio cases for iPad are made from a composite blend of G-Form's proprietary materials combined with PORON XRD material. They are lightweight and water-resistant and clearly able to withstand impact from extreme heights, as the video below demonstrates:

You can pick up the G-Form Extreme Portfolio for $89.95 or the Extreme Sleeve for $59.95 on G-Form's site. For my money, I'll just stay on the ground. What's the most extreme thing you've done using your iPad? Let me know in the comments!
