There are just too many threads about ipad 2 cases, but people did not mention much about what they finally go with.

Could you all please what kind of cases you guys have on your iPad 2? If you do not wish to post pictures, then please be kind enough to describe what you bought.

Hello,

Thanks for sharing your YooBao red case, looks super sharp against the white! I had a YooBao for my iPad one and I thought it added a lot of weight/bulk (my husband bought it for me and now it's his since he gave me the iPad 2) but I think the case/leather was excellent in quality and I'm loving the red. Does it also sleep/wake when it opens? Thanks in advance!

How is it folded back? Does it utilize the sleep function? And does it work in the "typing" angle? Couldn't find the answers on the website. Thanks

The Yoobao case does have the sleep/wake function, and it has a super-slim profile in comparison to the first generation case. You can see the pictures I posted in the Yoobao ipad 2 thread.

Thanks for the link, this is almost identical to the yooboa case at a fraction of the cost. I wasn't sure about the yooboa at $40+ and I am waiting for more cases to come on the market. I think this one will suffice for a month or two at $15 with free shipping. I ordered and looks like it'll be shipped tomorrow first thing and the seller is only one state to the East of me.

Here are some pics of what I believe to be the best clear protection I have ever used. I have used Zaggs and a few others. None have compared to Ghost Armor so far. It was easy to install and looks great. I won't be buying from another company unless they somehow start making a crappy product.

I went with a Twelve South BookBook for when I'm out and about ($55 shipped with coupon code off www.mygearstore). I got a little paranoid leaving my iPad 2 out in the open and thought this would hide it better. Added a soft magnet from a roll I picked up at Staples. Stacked a few and put it on the inside of the cover so it would activate the sleep on/off feature.

Also, I kept my Targus Vuscape for at home if I wanted something with a lower profile. Cool case, but I may wind up taking it back.

I just got this clear hard case from eBay for 7.99. It's very similar to the SwitchEasy Nude, which is what I had on iPad 1 for most of the time. I'm quite pleased with it:

I went with Portenzo after reading gazillions of reviews. Although, other cases are similar, they don't offer as many custom options as the Portenzo case. I'm glad I chose this case instead of the competition.:apple::)

I just received my Cyber Acoustics Leather iPad 2 Cover IC-1002BK today. I went with that one instead of the maroo moko 2 since I liked the cover without the Maroo stamp on it. Just cleaner.
I really like it. It isn't as bulky as I thought it was going to be. Very nice design and the mounting mechanism is slick and nice and easy to get in and out.

I bought the otterbox defender with our two iPads when we got them. It was a nice case. Just a little much and it was a pita to take out when I wanted to enjoy the iPad in all it's naked glory.

Marware C.E.O for me. I think you need to determine what you want. Skin, keyboard, color, pockets, price, protection and features.
It's all very personal and it took me three cases before I landed on the C.E.O CASE. This is the only case I could find that had a hand strap to help you hold it as you read. A must have feature for me (period) because I read on the iPad for hours I need to be able to adjust my hand holds. For others the important thing is typing so they focus on a integrated keyboard case. Lastly there are the out doors folks who want protecting so they wrap the iPad in a bullet proof cases. Note this also applies to people with kids that will access the iPad.
Last lastly, just enjoy the choices! There is no other tablets out there with so many options to choose from shop till you eyes pop.

I use the incipio smart feather and obviously it's paired with apples smart cover. It provides decent protection and you can still utilize the iPads smart cover magnets for unlocking and the stand and such. For taking my iPad to school and other places out of the house, I have a cheap case logic zip up case that I can throw my headphones, iPad, and stylus in. It also has a thing so if I want to watch a movie in the car it can stand up sitting on my lap. All together, I paid about $115 for my total iPad protection but I have the best of all worlds!

It was the Speck Pixelskin and it doesn't collect lint, but it is heavy. I ended up trading with my sister for the smart cover. I'm now rocking a case I picked up via eBay for $11 shipped and it's pretty good http://www.ebay.com/itm/300571158994#ht_1587wt_1185

I bought this case from e-bay, pretty good value at 29.00.
It`s a hard case that allows the I pad to be used in either position, it`s an exact fit and the keyboard turns it into a laptop.
Well impressed.

When the original iPad came out, apart from Apples own case, I bought a few other 3rd party cases too.
But now the iPad2? Having a smart case is absolutely ideal for me. But the back isn't protected... and since knowing that a SmartCase is the most beautiful case for an iPad2, I just can't seem to find a case that protects the iPad front and back, but still looks great :(
