Which tablet for special conditions

I am looking at buying a tablet for travel. Temperatures over 100 F and 100% humidity. My travel limits my total baggage to less than 20KG, so every ounce counts. Primary purpose will be for email. An important requirement is that I use a bluetooth keyboard and am able to work on gmail while not connected to net. Occasional wifi will be my only connect to the net. Micro USB is a plus for the purpose of sending photos back by email.
I am a bit worried about the durability of ipad as they are so thin and appear to be fragile. Thought a 7 inch tablet would withstand twisting and being jammed in a bag. Interchangeable batteries a plus as I tend to have limited access to power. I carry a power monkey so maybe solar rechargeable? A smartphone is not an option as I am not allowed to possess one in some countries.
Any ideas welcome.
