Nice pics. Can you give a little bit of a review? Would you recommend this as a light case to protect the iPad when traveling or just setting down on a table?
I have placed my order on 5/30 for the black as well. I am in Canada so don't expect my shipping to be that fast.
Thanks.

I had two Incipio Feather cases for my iPhone - both eventually cracked and broke, so I moved on to something a little thicker. I really liked the Feather, but it just didn't hold up. Not sure whether to expect better results on the iPad. It won't spend time in a pants pocket.

For my first sample, very soon after I got it, the strap that goes above the volume rocker cracked and broke out at one end. Incipio cheerfully replaced it. The second one eventually cracked down the middle of the back. That was when I gave up. I'm glad to hear of your good experience. Maybe I was just unlucky with some sort of sample defects.

The company was terrific when I complained about the first sample, so I have no reservations about their service. I didn't bother them about the second one because it did last several months, maybe the better part of a year.

What about grip ? Does it have a tacky feel to it ?

Looks good I wonder if any of the cases would work with the feather ?

Doesn't look like much protection if you drop it. Good for protection against scratches but thats about it.

for the sake of my thread. i just remove the cover and not a single scratch zero, nada..

the case is a polymer. soft and no rough edges

It does look good. It's the slimmest removeable casing that isn't an actual stick-on covering and can fit into the dock.

Wish mine had arrived safely. :(

T4R, Grateful for an update. I'm looking to trade my apple iPad case for a Feather and a Waterfield Ultra Sleeve. Have read excellent reviews of the Feather, but have also heard stories about how easily the case is prone to scratches, is slippery in the hand and causes scratches against the iPad chrome bevel.

You find any of this to be true?

Thanks for setting me straight-

actually right now i am comparing my iphone feather and ipad feather. on my iphone is like ages. there are no scratch at the back.
it has been proven on the iphone, with my coins,keys on pocket you will see a scratches at the back but if you rub it with your fingers the scratch will going to dissapear.

and for edges of the feather. the ipad feather is much smooth than my iphone feather. i am more concerned when removing the case on iphone compare to ipad.

i hope this will help you.

Thanks so much! There's a lot of good news about this case. Just a few have complained against it. I'm grateful for your view- Thanks for taking the time and thanks for the pics-

what's the grip like on the case? could i prop it up for typing (with like a business card stand here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/drewvigal/4509813612/in/set-72157623703596169/) and the case would help keep the ipad in place?

That looks really nice!
And your shipping was fast.
I ordered some generic brand TPU case on eBay for 10 bucks (this was last saturday). It shipped out of my homestate, and shipped out of a town that isn't even 5 hours away. Almost a week later, and it's still not here. The shipper used UPS Mail Innovations. Which SUCKS:mad:

its still loose, no force whatever when putting the iPad

Edit: what i mean loose is when putting on the dock.

when the case is on is there any movement? does it stay in place as you handle the ipad landscape vs portrait?

No movement or cracking sounds at all. Very firm and solid.
I think you are referring to switcheasy hehehhe..

I love these but I'm considering the Switcheasy Nude as well. Not sure what to go with yet.

I got the Swticheasy, and loved it. Fit was perfect. Everything was great. Sure, it scratches easily on the back, but who cares. Lovely case indeed.

And then I took it off my iPad for docking, and with that simple act, my iPad was scratched in several places.

I've heard the same thing from others.

For me, I'm now sticking with soft cases, like the iFrogz, which I love. It's just as unobtrusive, provides more protection, and to me, actually feels nicer to hold.
