Any grippy back covers.

I'm considering a SGP skin or something similar. I would prefer a grippy skin but I'm open to a hard shell as well. My only problem with the hard shells is that they are either to thick or are designed to work with the smart cover which leaves most of the side open.nif it wasn't for that I would buy the feather.

icarbons - not transparent but texture adds grip

Not transparent - but looks like carbon fiber. 3M skin so dry install. Looks great, fits well and adds enough texture to improve grip a lot.

I also want a grippy rubberized case, I don't know why most manufacturers make these slick shiny slippery cases. even many of the textured TPU cases are slippery. I have a carbon fiber skin on mine and it is NOT grippy. I;ve seen a very few hard shell cases that might have grip, but they are rare. I think these type tend to scratch and show every mark is I'm guessing why no one makes them. I find the naked iPad way too slippery and most cases do not seem to improve this.

My leather Yoobao folio adds some grip but not enough.
I have a Power Support Air jacket on my older iPhone that is black, thin hard plastic but has a rubbery coating. perfect.

I got the SGP leather skin and the BSE skin. No competition in my book, BSE wins. Much better coverage with a nice grippy feeling to it. Absolutely love it!

Hi! I just received a skin I purchased from eBay. While browsing their products I saw one with a "grippy" texture. This isn't the one I bought but it seems like it's exactly what you're looking for.

Thanks, I did apply BSE on my iPod Touch and it was grippy. I liked the look of my iPad carbon fiber skin, thinking it would have a grip, but it's more slippery than a naked iPad. That skin was $20 so I hate to remove it and buy another, plus now I want some good bump protection.
I may get a BSE back skin for when I want a caseless grippy iPad. For general use I like my leather Yoobao a lot, it looks and feels great, but not that grippy to hold. Thats why I liked the orig Apple iPad one case, super grippy.

But I kept wasting money on trying to find a grippy iPad2 case with 2 TPU cases, 1 skin, and the Yoobao. I'm hesitant to buy more cases but am peeved really good slim grippy ones seem rare.
