  1. I work outdoors on construction sites and we use the iPad 2 with custom application for land survey. We learned of the a product called M-TAC Pack (cover, case & saddles) from Tactical Concealment that is suppose to offer functional use of the tablet while working. It also holds other electronic devices that we need access to in the field. What I like best is that it has literally become a mobile field office case for me and it works great when setup in the cab of our truck to log information into the iPad. The pack is very ruggedized, coming from a company that makes military products II believe it will hold up to what we will subject it to in our field work. So far it has been working great and our company is now issuing them to our field crew.
