answer 4
Yes, the fit is snug, and it has cushioning. Its not soft, more like a bumper, than padding. But having dropped it, twice, I can definitely say that I trust the case to protect my iPad. The only minor issue is that the screen cover does affect the touch sensitivity around the edges, but a bit more pressure takes care of that.

It does change the touch screen feature. But it definitely still works with touch. It takes some getting used to, but my 10 year old said he doesn't notice it anymore(I mentioned that it didn't seem to respond like I thought, when I touched the screen). He uses the pad quickly and efficiently with the screen protector on... Hope this helps

It is water resistant - i.e. water drops, minor spill - but it wouldn't protect it from dropping it in the tub or sink full of water.

Survivor All-Terrain is water resistant, which means if some liquid gets splashed on it, or if you have to take it out in the rain for a little while, it should be fine. However, it's not waterproof, which means that it can't be submerged under water. Unfortunately, we don't offer a waterproof case for iPad at this time.
