    That is what I want too. A LeatherSkin compatible with with SmartCover would be great.

    Here is an option for you. Right now you can buy a zagg leather skin for the OLD ipad for $25 and modify it yourself. I thought I'd give it a shot...and I honestly think it works great! Feels so much better in my hand and has a little texture to keep me from dropping it. I have the black leather smart cover as well, so this makes a pretty elegant case.

    If you've got an X-acto knife and a steady hand, you can make this work. Cut the edge off for the hinge, and cut out for all the speakers, switches, camera, etc.

    Here's the hinge side.

    Any decal/skin will work with the smart cover. There are numerous threads on the smart cover, and the best we have found so far, that is an actual cover, is from Marware. It's available for pre-order on their sight, but not in stock yet.

    I currently use the clear skinomi protectors, front and back. No issues with them and my smart case on at the same time. The skins come precut for the iPad 2.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions, I just ordered the Skinomi clear skin. I'll let you all know how it is once I get it!

    Yup, it's a good skin. If you never put one of those kinds of skins on before, just watch the tutorial vids on skinomi's site. Was never a fan of "hiding" my iPad 1 or 2 behind an opaque back cover, so the skinomi works for me. I actually prefer the feel of the front protector over the non protected glass. The skin actually let's my fingers glide easier over the screen vs the glass.
