    Despte my awesome skills I may fall over while skiing soon.
    I will be taking my N7 and have seen threads referencing cracked screens, so thought I'd better get some protection for it.
    I could just get 2 plates of metal, but wondered if there was something pre-made.
    I'm thinking it needs to be something that doesn't flex if I land on it, rather than a scratch protector.
    Not sure yet if it'll be comfortable in my jacket pocket or may have to put in rucsack - either way it needs protecting.

    My recommendation would be to store it somewhere safe before you go skiing, as there really isn't a case that can protect it in that way. At least that I know of. Why would you need it while skiing anyways? I would think you would be more focused on that than messing with a tablet while zipping down a hillside.

    Fair question Slender Troll, and I agree with sentiment, but;
    i) I gather the gps works if you download map beforehand, so will be handy as I'm going to Milky Way (France/Italy border), quite a big area.
    ii) Hotel is out of town, with no wi-fi, so easier to check for messages etc on way back in evening, or at lunch stop.

    Thank-you weebeeSteve, Pelican are 'the' name for this stuff, typically for bigger camera gear, and will be lighter than my steel plate idea.

    There is an Aegis case by Trident Case that's pretty rugged. It has a silicone-like layer (TPE material) and a polycarbonate shell. Aegis Case for Google Nexus 7
