STM Skinny. They also make awesome carrying bags for it. Look it up, it has a nice sleek look. It has the same positions as the smart cover, and it protects the corners. And as the name implies, it's skinny, but not too skinny, just thin enough to protect but not be bulky. I dropped my iPad on a concrete floor, it hit the corner, bounced, landed, and the case and iPad were in 100% condition. I highly recommend it.

I read somewhere that every time you close it you have to put the little tab in to seal it or whatever. Does that become an issue when your in a hurry?

There is a pretty long thread in this forum on the STM Skinny. I read through almost all of it and most everyone is thrilled with this case. The only negative was something about the magnet not working properly on the early batches of the case. That said, someone from STM registered here just to tell people to contact them directly and they'll send you a fix or replacement for free.

Seems like a pretty solid case and company.

I'll vote for the STM Skinny. I've had it since it came out and have zero complaints. The one issue with it going to sleep when the cover was folded back was quickly remediated. I emailed radtech on a Thursday and had the patch the following Monday. It has not had the issue since.

If you read thru the thread, you will find that it is almost exclusively praised for being a great case. There are very few complaints and most of them are because the case is something that it's not supposed to be. It's not leather, it doesn't have 100% coverage, however it does have 100% protection.

It's a really great case.

I might add that STM is actually coming out with a new microfiber faux leather case in early July which I expect to be equally nice if not better. Not sure what it'll cost but I'd bet it will be reasonable.

Got the STM Skinny last week and really like it -- protects corners, doesn't cover bezel and doesn't add bulk. Tab isn't a pain at all, IMHO.
