    What is the lightest combination of smart cover and back protection for the iPad 2? My wife has the apple smart cover and a Zagg skin on the back, but I want something on the back that will give me a little drop protection too. The plastic skins are too heavy though. What else is there?

    I ordered a Poetic Hardback case that has a folding cover on it. Will report more on it after it arrives. This is for the iPad3.

    Got the Poetic cover yesterday. First complaint is that the front cover doesn't fold under. So it just hangs there. Hard bottom is nice. As a stand it feels pretty secure. I like the feel of the cover. Magnets on front cover are powerful. I can see that I will need to watch how I open it. The edge could get screwed up from a lot of grabbing the same spot. Little things, but not displeased. It looks good.

    Yes, they are nice. However, I was wanting something less permanent and that offered passive corner protection too. Nice stuff though.

    How light are you talking about? I know there are a variety of back screen protectors on Amazon, but I'm not sure how light you're looking for
