    Case / covers / skins

    So I've read through 3 or 4 threads about cases, skins, and smart cover accessories and a lot of them just link sites and say "it's on the way". Does anyone have a case they like or skin or just a back cover that goes with the smart case. I'm looking for something that also protects the back as well. I have a smart cover but I honestly bought it to see how it is to be honest. So yeah leave a response and hopefully a link to where to buy it

    Hi there. I have the Bodyguardz Skin on my iPad. It's actually quite nice on it. Originally I was going to get a Smart Case but I decided to go with the Portenzo case instead.

    First thing I did was the same as you, got a smart cover and then immediately worried about the back. I was all set to go with the invisible shield on the back too but I held off at the last moment because I found the stealth armor for iPad 2 by fusion of ideas. http://www.fusionofideas.com/store/S...ad-2-Case.html

    It is a bit on the expensive side, but they have many design options and they seem like they are high quality. There really isn't too much third party stuff out there right now for the iPad. We will have to wait a few months.

    I only worry about incidental nicks and scratches from laying the iPad down on tables. I went with the brushed aluminum to retain the original look as much ass possible. Drops and damage I have covered through Square Trade warranty for $96

    Here's one

    This one is like leather and protects front and back and snaps onto iPad 2 not just slide into the side. It's made by AYL but used to be YooBao. I bought it last weekend and just arrived. I have spent months trying to find a case I would be happy with. Check it out. In tried to find some reviews but you can just google AYL 5-in-1 carbon. BTW it feels and looks like leather with suede inside.

    I can post some pics if interested.

    Nice! I ordered the Marware MicroShell Folio case from MacMall, but it's on back order. Not sure how long I should wait for them.

    I've heard (from multiple sources) that Portenzo has been plagued by delayed delivery times. On Treegloo's Facebook page, a couple of them have cancelled their Portenzo orders and gone with Treegloo instead, who are about a week from order to shipping at this point.

    Yeah, I'm aware of the delay but I'd rather wait. I like the look of the Portenzo than Treegloo. All good things for those who wait.

    The YooBao/AYL is made from PU (polyurethane) leather, which is a low-cost leather-lookalike. While it includes discarded parts of low-grade hide in its manufacture, it doesn't retain any of the characteristics of genuine leather like developing a patina over time or weathering-in. (In fact, in some places, it is not legal for it to be described or sold as "genuine leather".)

    This brings the cost of the product down, and in a very tentative sense it is has "genuine" leather - in the same way, I guess, some sodas or fruit juices claim to have "genuine fruit ingredient".

    Nice I really like this one. If you could possibly post some pics like thickness that would be awesome. I recently bought this 40 dollar one from best buy, effi leather portfolio or something like that and it works fine but feels really weak and flimsy. How is the durability and strength of this one?

    As for the micro shell, I've seen a lot of them around on different websites but no one really basins. I like the idea of that to go with smart cases and what not but no one seems to have it only that they have it ordered. If anyone has real pictures of it and show how well it works with the smart cover then that would be really helpful.

    +1 for the AYL (Yoobao) cover. Ordered mine from Amazon and it arrived yesterday. Nice grade leather the keeps the slim profile of the ipad2. All for the price of the icover that I returned. Glade I waited.
