I am hoping some of the usual suspects of the case world make slip cases for the iPad 2 that accommodate it with the Smart Cover installed. The Smart Cover from Apple is brilliant for its size and use as a keyboard/movie stand but obviously we all know it doesn't protect the back. Not a big deal most of the time but not something you want when you are throwing it in a bag with other stuff etc. Hopefully someone can design a slipcase for the iPad 2 + Smart Cover combo.

I purchased the suede slip case from SFBags but in the original iPad size. It looks like it snugly fits the iPad 1, so iPad 2 with smart case might work, If not, ill give it to my bro who still has the iPad 1.

Actually, after I emailed SFBags today they put up an option for the iPad 2 w/ Smart Cover for all their cases. :D Their cases are pretty nice!

However, I'm thinking to just get a netbook sleeve, since i'd only use a case if I had it in my backpack. Otherwise, a skin, like one from iCarbons, is good enough. ;)

it looks very tight. Are you sure it will fit WITH the smart cover on?

I have their sleeve for my original iPad and it is just a little too bulky for me. It is more like it's own external bag, rather than a sleeve I can just put in my briefcase/messenger.

That said, I like their stuff a lot.

iPad 2 + Smart Cover is thinner than iPad 1. Any slip case that fit the original iPad will hold iPad 2. I'm not sure why people think a special case needs to be designed for it.

If you had an ipad 1 I bet the sleeve from that would accommodate your ipad 2 and the smart cover.

Mine did. It is a nice money saver until I make a decision on a case. I will not buy multiple cases this time.

I'm using the Targus Crave Slipcase. Fits with the smart cover perfectly. There are hidden pockets to put the handles in if you don't want to use them. It's a tight fit so the only accessories you can fit in the exterior pocket are small things like cleaning cloth, earbuds, stylus, etc.

I have a Waterfield Ultimate Sleevecase for my iPad 1, which I'll be using for my iPad 2 when I pick it up this week. Very well-made. A bit bulky but there's room to keep a few accessories (cable, camera kit, compass stand) in the pocket.

Do you mean an all leather slip case for the ipad2 that looks like this? :))

This.

I got the Marware leather sleeve (looks like an envelope) and it works great. I have a smart cover and belkin snap on the back.

I ordered this one via eBay the other night http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180662147746&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT. Cheap and I'm sure it will get the job done.

5 bucks....

Fits my iPad 2 with a smart cover and a Belkin snap case like a glove. Just used it to carry my iPad on a business trip, best 5 bucks you can spend.

I've just picked up the Crumpler PJs - awesome slip sleeve. Nice and slim but plenty of padding.

You might want to look into the Waterfield Designs Smart case. It holds my iPad2 quite nicely and then fits into my Waterfield Design Muzetto bag as well.

I have an ICarbons wood type skin on the back of my iPad and a Smart Cover, and as I said it fits very nicely into the Smart Case which fits nicely into the Muzetto bag. Both items are top quality.

That is the one that I have with a Muzetto bag of the same color. Although I bought them a year apart they look like they were made at the same time.

I've been using a Cygnet black sleeve which I use to use for my original iPad. I think it's made from kind of synthetic material and quite flimsy. Yesterday I ordered the Vaja leather iPad 2 sleeve in black with red trim. It should be a
lot stronger as it's made of top quality cow hide and hand made. It does cost $110 plus $26 shipping but from everything I've heard about Vaja it should be good quality.
