    I am looking for an iPad 3rd gen back shell that is compatible with the smart cover, has a rubbery feel, and has a peace you can remove or flip up on the back so you can dock the iPad on the Apple iPad dock. Oh yea and I want it to be black or grey is that too much to ask? The most difficult part of what I'm looking for is the compatibility with the Apple iPad dock.

    Belkin snap shield
    Incipio feather
    Cimo TPU case

    There's a lot to choose from... Those are just some off the top of my head. Will they all work in conjunction with the dock?... Not sure.

    I use the TPU HyperShield, gray. It was for my iPad 2, but just fits a bit snugger on the new iPad.

    As you said, all good until the dock. I heard of anything that will do that too.

    This one, The one that you have, does it not add to the weight of the iPad ? Does it not make the iPad more heavy ?

    Obviously any case would make it heavier, right? :p
    Also this review here, some people in the comments don't like it... I honestly just like my CyberAcoustics case, protects and hides the device as if it were a portfolio.

    Anything that offers more than scratch protection is going to add weight. the HyperShield cases are a compromise between bulk/weight and protection; giving you a little of each. The plastic is moderately grippy and has just enough give to avoid feeling hard. It is not the best case of this type, but it is very good for the price; which has gone down since I bought it.

    They are also a close, but not perfect, match for the polly Smart Covers in both color and texture.
