I should be one of the world's foremost authorities on Pelican cases, considering I have several dozen. The 1065CC case is perfect for protection of any full sized iPad, with or without Apple case. I have tested it with both the original 1st generation iPad, and also with the 4th generation iPad (late 2012 model - retina display with upgraded processor). Both have the full enclosure Apple brand case. As other reviewers have noted, when closed, inspection of the seal does not appear to be uniform, and there is some question whether the case is waterproof (meaning fully submersible), which is the expectation of a Pelican case. Because of this, I have downgraded the review by 1 star. Despite this, the case is perfect for my application. I wanted something to add serious protection for an iPad intended to be carried in a backpack. In my case, a LowePro DSLR Video Pack 250 AW, which includes a Panasonic Lumix GH3 camera plus lenses. And because I don't travel light and work out of my car, I needed something that would insure the iPad is not destroyed if I inadvertently put heavy gear like tripods and such on top of it. No doubt Pelican could have made a more robust case, but I don't know how they could have done any better without increasing the size and bulk to the point the case would defeat the primary attraction of the iPad - lightweight mobility. I'm thrilled to have this design because it fits into the backpack. The o-ring seal may not be waterproof, but it is good enough for anyone except scuba divers. Also, other reviewers have mentioned the case is a loose fit, and that the iPad can move inside. Not hardly. If anything, the case is too tight fitting. The fact that the middle bulges enough to question the o-ring water seal is an indication that there is some degree of pressure on the enclosed iPad itself, because the case does not bulge when empty. There is no iPad movement, at least not with the full enclosure Apple brand case. If anything, the fit is so close, the user must be careful to center the iPad carefully in the case in order to close it successfully.
