They are supposed to be waterproof for an iPad. They don't even come close, they aren't even splash proof. Two of the corners seem to be miss-formed on the left side and won't snap closed. I tried to take this very expensive case back to Best Buy, and they told me they no longer sell them despite having many on the shelf and referred me to the manufacture. So far they are refusing to exchange it or give me a refund. So I'll post the LifeProof case problems on as many Forums as I can.
