Go Beyond the Grind

Going after what you want takes effort; it takes work, it takes sacrifice. It takes searching and chasing, clawing and digging. It's about going beyond the daily grind. It's going beyond what you think you can do — and where you can do it. Go beyond the grind with Rugged Book Pro.

Thoughtful Design

The best design is the kind that thinks of what you need before you do. Thoughtfully designed at every turn, the Rugged Book Pro is full of features that set it apart and help you get the most out of your iPad.

Case Kickstand

Holder for Apple Pencil

Keyboard Kickstand

When it's time to kick back, the built-in kickstand holds your iPad at just the right angle for when you're reading, surfing the web, or watching your favorite show.

Want to be quick on the draw? A built-in holder for the Apple Pencil keeps it close at hand for easy retrieval and storage. A durable loop securely holds your Apple Pencil in place when it's time to take a break.

Close up shop with a handy magnetic hinge that secures your keyboard to the case. When it's detached, the hinge folds over and doubles as an ergonomic kickstand for your keyboard.

Impact and Corner Damage Protection

Ever watch your iPad teeter on the edge of a precipitous cliff? OK, maybe it's just a kitchen counter – but it can feel like a cliff as you watch it fall to the ground. When it comes to the Rugged Book Pro, the name says it all: it features four layers of formidable protection to guard your iPad against impact and corner damage from those unexpected drops, tumbles, and falls.

Rugged Book Pro Exploded
  • Durable silicone rubber is layered throughout the case, keyboard, and hinge for ultimate impact protection.
  • A stainless steel frame under the keyboard offers a solid typing surface and added protection.
  • Rugged polycarbonate in the case, keyboard, and hinge provides unmatched protection against impact, scratches, and dents.
  • Reinforced corners help you breathe easy when those unexpected drops happen.

Maximum Drop Protection

Those seconds between when you drop your iPad and when it hits the ground can feel like an eternity, but with Rugged Book Pro, you can breathe easy. Its durable design of stainless steel, polycarbonate, and rubber join forces to help withstand impact and corner damage from drops up to six feet.

Rugged Book Pro for the Apple 9.7-inch iPad Pro (English US) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended. Best case for iPad Pro Bought 2. One for me and one for my wife. Don’t use the keyboard much, just to protect the screen mainly, since I use the Apple Pencil. Protects much better than other case I have tried. Without the keyboard the case protects all sides well. The left side has about a 1/2 border where the keyboard connects via magnet. This border is perfect for holding the case while reading or doing most activities you do with your iPad, I wish all cases had this as it keeps your fingers off the screen while holding the iPad in portrait mode. The stand built into the case is great and works well for portrait and landscape viewing. Very pleased with this product. Highly recommended. Also have Zagg Glass on my iPad and it does not interfere with the cases function at all.

Do you need to purchase a new keyboard after the 2 years life of the battery?

Asked by: Allister
No, you just charge it with the included cord. The average battery life on a single charge - if using the keyboard for a very limited time each day - is 2 years. The chances are slim that it will last anywhere NEAR that long without being recharged, unless you seldom use it. But you can just charge it at the same time you're charging your iPad Pro.

How do you pair keyboard with iPad?

Asked by: Suzann
Ensure your device’s bluetooth connection is on. Then, press your Rugged Book Pro’s bluetooth key for three seconds. The key being used will light and begin pulsing, indicating your Rugged Book Pro is in pairing mode. Your device will display “ZAGG Rugged Book Pro” as an available pairing option.
