Are you looking for one that's simply a back cover or one that works in conjunction with the smart cover?

That works with the smart cover yea. Sorry didn't mention that

I've got a green smart cover.

I saw a site that looked good called hypershield.com that would fit my smart cover but not sure if they ship to UK and what shipping cost would be

I've been using the Belkin snap case and I love it. It's cracked from normal wear and tear, but Belkin will replace it for a year.

Gearzap.com in the UK have loads of Smart Cover compatible cases. I bought my zeroshock case for my MBP from them, no complaints.

The Incipio Feather is smart cover compatible and they're a great company. Ship to the UK or check out eBay for some already here.

+1 for sw-box

Got This green one (http://www.sw-box.com/Tpu-Ipad-2-Case-Compatible-With-Smart-Cover-Green.html) for about 4 allow shipping of about 7 and it's a lot cheaper and does the job.
I bought a few more cases, docks, cables, etc from them, saved a packet and final shipping cost was about 12 and took a week or so to arrive.

I have Prime, so 2-day shipping from FBA sellers, and not having to wait for HK sellers, even if buying from a diff. seller on Amazon it ships from USA.

The two cases I got from eBay were shipped from the U.S.

I just got this in the mail today, works beautifully, hard to put on at first, but once on, it is one classy cover. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005DBO228 It is cheap as well if you have prime, only $2.99.

If this leather case is as good as it looks it will be a slick deal for sure.
Thanks for the tip.
In for 1!

It does, I promise you, it provides great protection as well, very thick. Not like thick thick, but thick enough for good protection and great with the Smart Cover.
