    I tried the Targus which is a nice case but a bit thick since my hands are used to the folding magnetic face cover & hard shell back cover. Finally
    Coated on Amazon a one piece with the folding magnetic face cover. It allows a more comfortable holding of iPad when taking photos. The smell of the plastic when opening was a bit strong but that has disappeared.
    What do u use?.

    I've got three iPads, all in TPU back-only cases. I slide them into a netbook sleeve on the go. I like my tablets streamlined and lightweight.

    I also had an Otterbox (gifted to me), which I returned. Didn't care for clunkiness. Didn't need that kind of protection. I have a portfolio case, too, but have not used it.

    I initially used an Otterbox case when I purchased my mini, but found it to be a bit thick and heavy. I now have it in a Poetic portfolio case from Amazon. This case is similar to the Apple Smart Cover, but with a handsome leather cover on it. It is also cost effective over the Apple case. It has held up really well so far.

    I actually purchased an Invellop folio type case off of Amazon for 14.95 and I love it so much I ordered a few more in other colors. It is very thin, protects all corners on my mini and has the smart function of sleep/wake. Also has a magnet so when I open the cover it stays secure to the back and doesn't flop around.

    You mean this one:

    Amazon.com: INVELLOP BLACK Leatherette Case Cover for iPad mini (Built-in magnet for sleep/wake feature) Model #'s MD531LL/A MD528LL/A and MD540LL/A: Electronics

    ? Yes, it is nice. I have it too. I thought it was too heavy! :)

    I'm really picky about my cases.

    I use a Sondstrom leather case. Makes it thicker but protects the mini well. Still fits in my pocket!

    Different strokes for different folks. It is a nice case, though, that I can find no real fault with. But I noticed the extra 1 oz of weight as soon as I put my iPad mini in it. I'm keeping it, though, for those situations where I need backup or what to change up. And it does come in those nice colors, too!

    I'm either using a poetic slimline or the similar case by moko, both from amazon. Once I get back from holiday travel I'm going to this site

    X-Doria

    To try the smart jacket.
