    I have the Marware Microshell Folio preordered but it's going to be another couple weeks at the earliest before it gets shipped.

    I noticed belkin had a nice option but it has said "coming soon" for over a month.

    Are there any other (possibly better) folio options that are lightweight and actually available to purchase?

    I have the Switcheasy Canvas and really like it but I'm not sure I would consider it lightweight. Awesome protection though.

    the release date on the proporta is about the same as the expected ship date of the marware i have preordered. Plus, it's too expensive for my taste.

    I've ordered some items from proporta in the past that were listed as available and it still took them over a month to ship it to me so I avoid them at all costs anyway.

    The Canvas one looks pretty good but comments about it not staying in the grooves when used as a stand worries me a bit. Seems like the other folio design makes for a stronger stand (like the apple case for the original ipad).

    thanks for all the suggestions. I ended up ordering the skinny and cancelling my order for the marware case.

    Just received the skinny. It's nice but is anyone else having the issue of it going to sleep when you put pressure on it with the lid folded behind it?

    I'm beginning to think the magnets are more of a headache than they're worth.

    Someone on the MacRumors website posted this about the STM Skinny:

    "update on my sleep issue when the Skinny is reversed.

    I got an "STM Service Kit for SKinny" from RadTech which is basically a patch that is applied on the inside of the bottom part and fixes the sleep issue when the cover is reversed."

    They said they e-mailed the manufacturer about the problem and received the kit in the mail.

    I got the patch a couple days ago. It appears to have fixed the sleep issue but pushes the case out a little bit at the bottom. Not very much though. Overall the patch is an improvement as I can handle a little bump a lot better than messing with the ipad going to sleep while I'm using it.

    Thanks for giving me the heads up on the repair kit.
