    Hi, I am new and I just ordered my iPad2 and smart cover. I am looking for something to protect the back.

    My ideal case must be very slim and must compatible with smart cover. anyone has any idea?

    Belkin has a plastic snap on back, and it works great for me. Others have complained about the quality, but I've had no problems.

    I'm using HyperShield. Matching colors for Smart Covers, and reasonable prince. There are probably better, but probably not for less. I'm satisfied with mine.

    Lots of options. The main issue you'll want to consider is whether you want the back protector to "lock" the SmartCover in place. If you do, you won't face the problem of picking up the iPad by the cover and having it detach. Of course, that also means you cannot detach the SmartCover without removing the back case.

    If you're looking for recommendations, search is your friend.

    My wife took hers to the mall and got a Zagg Invisashield installed. Doesn't get any lighter then that. Offers scratch protection,but does nothing for drop protection.

    Lots of TPU skins on eBay that would offer drop protection too. They tend to be a bit heavy

    It's a middle of the road case that works pretty well. The little bit of plastic just below the Home button is weak, but the rest fits well. The boarder around the edges keeps the Smart Cover from sitting as tightly as it could, but it is still reasonably secure and doesn't flip open on it's own.

    I spent quite a bit of time searching for something that looked good, added some reasonable protection, and wouldn't cost so much that I'd regret buying it unseen. I'm happy enough that I feel no need to buy another case until I'm certain it is exactly what I want.

    If you ever watch the AppAdvice Daily videos by Robin Rhys you can sometimes see a an iPad in a pink case. I'm pretty sure is a Hypershield.

    Im using the Zum SC Ulimate. Limited colors but it locks the smart cover into place.
