Just found this and looks very good for those who like the smartcover and want back support.

Just received my incipio feather case for my new iPad 2 from amazon. I LOVE IT!!!

Even though its so slim and does not add any weight to my 64GB WIFI, but it is suprisingly tough. I was worry the thin part at the upper right hand corner will easily break and try to press it. WOOOO... amazing... it is so tough and flexible!!! The case is almost like unbreakable!!!

Its a perfect companion for my smart case also even though its not completely compartible with the smart case. It provides a perfect back protection.

In general, I LOVE IT!!!

To make it even better, I got it for only $23.99.... man cant complain!!

Amazon confused me that the case was not available now. But actually another amazon seller can ship the case right away at a bargin price!!!

What do you mean about it not being completely compatible with the smart cover?

No, just thought that I would let people know that these were available. I know that some members like the PS USA protectors.

I bought the Apple Smart Cover (Orange, Polyurethane) and it really is quite a neat little product, in terms of design at least.

It doesn't 'clean my screen', it doesn't 'remove finger prints' but it does offer some protection the the front as well combine to make a pretty super little stand.

I've noted that in less than a week of being used in coffee stores and placed in my bag, it is already changing colour, that is to say it's already picking up dirt. It looks like my old white MacBook where I had to regularly clean it, these alu-MacBooks (this post, right now, is probably the first time I've used my MacBook for simple web activities since buying the iPad and that's only because I needed to remotely connect to the office and we don't currently have a tool in place to allow me to use my iPad) seem to 'stay clean' or perhaps 'hide the dirt' way better than my first macbook ever did.

But the biggest problem, by far with these smart covers is that they only show love for one side of my iPad!!

I am planning to buy some kind of skin/wrap for the back of my iPad in order to give the back a little protection from scratching etc. I just need to slow down on my out-goings at the moment or I'm going to get a smack around the head if I buy anything else for me I think...

This is a good thread...ya think we could just rename this one the "Official iPad 2 Cases" thread so everyone will see the thread title and know where to post their suggestions and reviews?

I'm trying to find a good case for mine. I want something like the original Apple iPad case that works like a folder, but I'm also not wanting to spend a whole heck of a lot (would prefer not to spend more than $30...but I understand I will also sacrifice quality at lower prices). There are a few good ones in this thread...any others?

There already is one, stickied right at the top of this very forum and titled:


iPad 2 Smart Covers, Cases, Screen Protectors


Come to think of it, how about we just merge this one with the existing sticky.

^^ Yeah, they don't really clean the screen unless you pull it off and rub it back and forth by hand, which doesn't work well, but takes care of cleaning when you don't have anything else.

You should check out the pixelskin HD wrap I posted a link for above. It has the smartcover-like front plus back protection.

D'oh!

I've trained myself to simply not see pinned threads on any forum. It's almost like they don't exist...I may need to see a message board therapist to fix this.

I have been looking for a grip type back to go on my iPad 2 that will work with the smart cover. I found one on Marware's website. It is the MicroShell iPad 2 case. Says it is made of polycarbonate and is a flexible one-piece design that snaps easily on ipad 2. Comes in 5 colours. I tried to order online but it says they are on backorder. I phoned Marware and they told me that they will be shipping them the end of April and for those that care, yes they do ship to Canada.

I don't know how yet to post pics here but here's the link instead:

MicroShell iPad 2 case

Anyone had any Marware products before? Comments? Quality?

Thanks,
Cathy
