    I have an OtterBox Defender Series, which is perfect for when I go to school because I know it will be protected, but it's way too much bulk for when I'm at home. I'm looking for a nice, lightweight case that protects the back of the iPad and can give me a little sense of security. (Preferably inexpensive since I spent around $100 on the OtterBox)

    Lots of options available. My current favorite is the "Harmony" case from Evio. ($40 usd). The cases from Maroo are a bit bulkier than the Harmony but have what I suspect is a superior design as a stand. A few more bucks ($45 usd). Lots of less expensive cases from Asian sources available on Amazon and eBay.

    The Otterbox Reflex is much slimmer than the Defender and could fit the bill. The Speck Candyshell Wrap also offers more protection than most shell/cover combos.

    Wardmaster iPad 2 Check the Wardmaster X-Fit Leather Book Stand Case

    yes, we do sell it on our site, but i honestly think this is one of the more underrated companies out there. Its a Chinese luxury brand. (Wardmaster tablet cases Wiki | About Wardmaster iPad cases & tablet covers)
    Its quite cool, has great protection value (search it on you tube, they throw it down from some serious height) , fits the iPad like a glove, and wont break your wallet.

    I got mine from MODERATOR EDIT: no external links they deal with custom ipad covers. Not inexpensive but lite in weight and protective. Check them out on the web.

    A brand new shiny gadget is a beautiful thing. One that's scratched, scuffed, or (gasp!) smashed is not only regrettable, but avoidable. Fragility and mobility are the perfect combination for disaster when it comes to tablets. If you have an iPad, the first thing you need to do is get a case to protect it.
