Yeah, Oberon (like Twelve South's "BookBook" or Nedrelow's "Book for iPad") has a certain style which isn't for everyone - but if you like that kind of handtooled leather aesthetic, they do quite an amazing job (for an amazing price.)
I just picked up a nice, relatively cheap, leather case from Target. Black, book-style, with a locking strap. Feels nice to carry, decent protection of the iPad. Couple of different viewing angles. Target had a few different options, may want to check them out!

I have the 4S 64gb, with an Otterbox Defender Series case(i never use the holster), & havent had any problems with the phone overheating,
Honestly, I don't believe that at all.
I use a similar case on my last phone, & prefer the Defender series.
They are extremely good for protection, they can't be beat...
My recommendation has got to be Yoobao Executive Leather - stunning
I have had Yoobao for my iPad1, 2 and now 3 and they are great.
just bought Targus: It's excellent; has many good options for different angle (secure) support + rotating ring allowing for supported verticle view...best case i've seen and this, after purchasing and tossing 2 others...one being the front and back made-for-iPad 3 as the support system was terrible. When shopping (BestBuy) be attentive as there are MANY Targus look alike choices. Threw away the box so can't be specific re. name: model # is THZ15602US-51.
Just get a decent plastic/silicon transparent back case and pair it with a smartcover. It's a little on the heavy side but quite nice and you'll use it a lot.
I prefer using no case. I did buy a clear plastic rear cover to keep the heat (iPad3) off my lap and protect the aluminum from scratches, but I don't see the point in covering the glass. When I take the iPad out of the house, it zips into a padded nylon bag with both a handle and a shoulder strap.
