I have a microfiber type case that feels like cardboard on the front flip lid of the case and hard edges all though there no plastic to the case at all . It Covers the bottom sides top edge and has a flap that's comes around and shuts like a book . I like the thinnest of it and the front cover . Now For the hate part instead of a smooth curved edge around the iPad 2 there a piece that pinches outwards all the way around it's pretty hard and uncomfortable I hate it . I'm looking for something light not bulky comfortable to hold with smooth edges and a flip front cover . Any help would be greatly appreciated .
