Shooting iPad video in the tropics

I'm tagging along on a research trip to a biological field station in the Bahamas. While I'm there, I'd like to use my iPad to shoot some video of the researchers doing their respective things. How would you turn an iPad 2 into a lean, mean, field-video-recording machine?

Probable conditions include boat trips and hikes in rain, wind, sand and scorching sun. At the very least, I gather I need a protective, possibly waterproof case and a decent external microphone. I have the standard Apple Camera Connector for hooking up a USB mic, but I've never tried it with a hefty enclosing case like an Otterbox.
I've been looking at reviews of cases and microphones, but I'd love to hear any suggestions for specific products or general setups.
