    What's the best case compatible with the Apple Smart Cover? I've seen the Enki Genius Case, Switcheasy Coverbuddy, Incipio Smart feather, belkins. Which one is the best? Any other suggestions?

    I had the XGear but switched to the Belkin. Much thinner better coverage.

    I had the Joy Factory clear cover and it was OK, but I sold it and bought the CoverBuddy clear cover. It has much better coverage and feels better in my hands. It's a very elegant design.

    For the price, I can't recommend this clear back cover enough.  I like this better than my $30 XGear cover!

    I second the Belkin cover. Light and smoked, so you cant really see and scuffs and such. Found it a BB for 30 bucks a couple weeks ago.

    Got the Coverbuddy from Switcheasy based on recommendations here. Hopefully I'll be pleased when it arrives.

    Well, I don't think the CoverBuddy comes from CA. It's 2 days and I still haven't gotten mine, but hopefully tomorrow.

    I ordered the Coverbuddy a week ago Thursday (late evening) and it was on my doorstep when I came home on the following Monday. It's fits great, works perfectly with the leather smartcover, and protects the back of my iPad. :D

    I got the Coverbuddy to go with my Smart Cover too and I'll use that combo at times but right now I have the iPad 2 in my Targus VuScape (I think that's the name of it) because of the stand.

    I purchased the same cover you did from the same seller on eBay. Great protection for my ipad2 without any issues between this back cover & the smart cover.

    Just ordered the clear case from Ebay (CIMO). Should arrive about the same time as my IPAD2. Thanks for the tip, this was a good price compared with some of the other "brand" names.

    My grey CoverBuddy arrived in the mail today, so it took 3 days. It did come from CA as well which is strange, because I didn't get charged CA sales tax. Definitely not complaining though!

    This back is great, and matches the color of my grey Smart Cover perfectly, with perfect fit and finish. More protection than the XGear and eBay clear back covers, and the rubberized back makes it easier to hold without slipping than the others I've had. So of the 3 this is definitely the best of the bunch IMHO. 

    Just a follow up to say that the Clear Case from Ebay seller cimousa worked well for me. I'm very happy with it as it is a great fit with the smart cover.

    I may buy a black back cover from the same seller as well. For 10-12 bucks a piece I can afford some variation!
