    I have one of those smart covers that magnetically attaches to the side. I was wondering what you guys could recommend for the back while still being able to use the Smart Cover that protects the front. Thanks

    This is the case that i am currently using

    [ame]http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003P4SU78/ref=cm_rdp_product[/ame]

    The front cover works the same as the smart cover, wakes on open and sleeps on close, but provides full protection instead of just the screen

    just another lurker....

    I have the Cover Buddy. Some things I like are that it snaps on and fits perfectly so you barely notice you have an extra piece attached. It doesn't add much weight at all. And it makes it easier for those of us with fat fingers to pick it up off a flat surface.;) http://www.switcheasy.com/products/NUDE_iPad2/NUDE_iPad2.php

    My switcheasy coverbuddy just showed up and I really like it: CoverBuddyâ„¢ For iPad 2 - SwitchEasy Works with the smart cover, it's pretty thin so it doesn't add much bulk to the ipad and the speaker area is covered by verticle strips instead of being completely exposed like I have seen on other cases. They must be selling pretty well because quite a few colors are now out of stock and I just ordered mine a week ago.

    Joy Factory here. It's Smartcover compatible, very low bulk and excellent quality.

    I got the HyperShield a couple of weeks back. It's doing a good job. The color and texture is a fairly close match for the polly smart covers. Just watch out for the shipping costs. Everything except standard first class mail cost too much in relation to the cost of the cover.

    Oh, it's also a relatively cheap cover.

    I looked at the specs....I am not familiar with this material. Is it soft like a get case or hard like plastic? Is it enough protection if the iPad was dropped?
    Thanks!

    It is kind of in between a hard case and a gel case. The material is a little harder than the smart cover. I'd say the protection is similar to other cases with similar coverage. A hard case protects very well from dents, but transmits the shock to the device. A gel case absorbs more shock, but may allow dents. This case could be cosidered a sort of comprimise.

    Not that I plan on drop testing it to find out.

    Have u ever tried Case-Mate / Case-Mate EU Cases? I used to have Tough Case for my iPad. I didn't need any additinal functionality just a good protection and i reckon it did the job but now when I got the iPad 2 I'm going to try POP Case as it protects really well (have it on my phone) but also has a stand so should add a little to the functionality of the device. The white one looks really cool :)

    I have a SC and a bodyguard skin. The Skin is minimal, but it seems to protect the back. I have a warranty for accident...I don't want to have to worry about dropping the damn thing, though I don't intend to ever drop it.
