Not much talked about, but I have the Speck DustJacket and swear by it.. It's inexpensive ($30-$40, available online and at Target!) and very durable. Not closure, but has multiple viewing angles in landscape and leaves the whole face of the Ipad exposed (no loops in corner or shifting around). It too, is a bit on the heavy side, but very secure and all sides are inset so in the case of a drop - you should be just fine.

I use the Targus leather sleeve, but I don't like cases so that's why, because I just use it while it's in my backpack.

The Zagg keyboard case is great!
The Targus Truss Case for iPad THZ022US has been the perfect case for me. Take mine everywhere and almost always in resturants. Makes it easy to use qucikly and fold away leave lying on the table protected while eating. Folds and lays between seats in car, or will flip out and sit on dash. Can fold out flat and use in bed too. A quality case that offers good protection and easy to use. Very happy with mine.

I got a dodo case love it for coffee shops or nice resturants.
Out and about, a griffin case at walmart $32. It has a tab to "lock" cover into place. Microfiber interior and elastic tabs to remove iPad in a few seconds (very secure tho). I like my iPad naked at home.
Both cases are easy to remove the pad from. I have a targus leather slip case..used it once. $60 wasted lol doesn't fit my lifestyle. Great quality however and looks great
