If you're going to say that, at least post the link to the thread.

Lortimer, here's a huge thread discussing the different types of cases for the iPad mini.

It looks nice. I actually prefer the leather sleeves over other ones. Whoa, $95? That's pretty high.

Yeah hazy cloud it was super expensive!
But on the website they mentioned that it was
a geniune horween chromexcel leather so it was def
worth it. For y'all that arent leather afficionadas like me-
Horween Chromexcel is like the premium of premium leather.
I just ordered mine! Waiting for it in the mail

I got this one shipped to the States from the UK; took about 10 days. It's perfect, I love it. I also have their iPhone 5 version.

Edit: it doesn't work with the smart cover.

I can vouch for how amazing it is. By far the best sleeve i've seen. I've posted my review on my site.

My living with the smart cover and clear back shell for the Mini, no case or sleeve.

I just ordered a portable keyboard for my ipad mini. The keyboard connects to the iPad mini like a laptop but it leaves the back of the Mini unprotected. I need to find a sleeve that fits the Mini and Keyboard too. What would you guys suggest?

The SwitchEasy CoverBuddy, but I'd probably go with a skin from iCarbons instead depending on how the keyboard connects to the iPad. A CoverBuddy may not work.

Here is how I roll:

Joli sleeves and a saddleback satchel.

Personally I like cases. I'd recommend this one from poetic.

This is the keyboard I got http://www.pctabletcases.com/minisuit-bluetooth-ipad-mini-keyboard-review/

Not sure if the switcheasy would work?

I bought a neoprene bag from Big Lots (if you have them near you go look at their ipad accessories). It's the perfect size for the ipad and if I ever decide to put a cover on it, will still fir in bag. It also has a zippered pocket on the front for my accessories. Cost $6.

If you aren't using a Smart Cover, you may want to go with the Incipio Feather. Of course there's no way to know if either one will work until you actually try one.

If you're real worried, a skin may be your best bet.
