    I've had mine since the the first day they came out and only used the smart cover. I only recently added a clear back cover as more or less a just in case factor. But, the back of my iPad still looked perfect as the day I bought it. I picked mine up off ebay. Works with the smart cover.

    Depends on where the itch is.
    It does help on areas of the back that I would have difficulty reaching with hand alone.

    Well, I suspect that scratches are always a possibility w/ an unprotected back of the iPad - just not sure about there frequency?

    However, I bought a clear plastic back cover made by Cimo Technologies - snaps (and stays) on leaving access to all of the controls - compatible w/ the smart cover; adds little thickness to the iPad, and feels a little more sturdier to hold at least in my hands.

    Just my opinion - good luck in your choice - :)

    thanks all,my main worry was when it was lying around the house or taking it out,my smart cover covers the back when using it except when its a stand,i went in the apple shop this afternoon and the lad in there said they dont scratch all that easy,in the end i bought a nice Griffin slip case that has a pull up tab that lifts the ipad partly out,if i come across a transparent film(like the screen protector stuff)i will add one for good measure.

    I put a skin on the back of my ipad2. The skin didn't add any weight and folks stop me to see both the skin and the ipad.

    No scratches on the back of my ipad2 after 1 month. Now I have a leather case for it, just in case!

    My iPad2 went straight into a folio case the moment it came out of the box - again 'just in case'

    I scratched mine the day I got it :( I slid it across the table as it was bit out of reach and got a big scratch on it from something that I couldn't see on the table, still don't know what it was.bought a skin for the back since and recently got a back cover that works with my smart cover, I would defiantly put something on the back to protect it as I was gutted to have damaged it first day with my carelessness
