It fits similar to the Apple Smartcover when closed, so the case would need to be bare on that side that is magneticly attached to the cover.

I do like the look of the skin, I just am concerned over light drop protection. My main intention for the Mini is to be able to
some work when away from my office.
The smart cover is not the way to go if you want drop protection. Personally, I don't worry too much over drop protection since I have no kids. I worry about scratch and ding protection, in case I ever want to sell a device. But you need to do what is best for you. There are many many cases for iPads, though.
You could use skins for ding/scratch protection, then get a sleeve to put both the keyboard and the mini in for when you travel. The sleeve would be your drop protection. Or you could get a carry case with handles.
I don't know if you're still in the market for a cover, but this works well with my iPad Mini/Logitech Ultrathin combo.

I myself use that keyboard cover, and use a zippable sleeve for around the two. I like it that way.
