Thumbs up Picked up a ipad2 feather + smart cover

I had a feather for my ipad1 and loved it.

Saw they made one that clips over the edge of the smart cover so it doesn't come off and that's exactly what I wanted! Now I have thin protection that's nice and light and my smart cover no longer comes unclipped.

I'll try and throw some pics up.

I think people have already discussed this here in other threads. I suspect you will find mixed views with most being negative due to the fact that you cannot take the Smart cover off without first taking the Feather case off. That's what put me off along with the fact that I had bought their original Feather case for the iPad 2 which they claimed worked with the Smart cover but didn't as it had no cut out for it. I think the Belkin Snap Shield or SwitchEasy CoverBuddy are far better options in this respect.

wargasm-

I know you have the Incipio Feather that is smart cover compatible, im interested in the regular Feather but im sure they are similar maybe you can answer.

Would you happen to know if a back body skin/shield would fit with the Feather on it? or would it be to tight?

Hey Bob,

It fits really tite. I dont know if it would be possible for it to "snap" on the ipad if there was something between the two.

Heres a couple pics,

The BEST feature to me is how it clips over the smart cover to keep it from snapping off (which happened to me)...

Thumb resize.

Thanks for the response war so it seems it's a no-go then.

It looks nice though, but if it's really tight as is doubt it'd work. I want something slim but still want to keep my body skin on to protect and for resale value.

As much as I like the Smart cover and only have good things to say about it one thing it won't do is keep the iPad safe especially from a drop.

Does anybody think the feather would protect from a maybe 2-3 ft linoleum drop? At least protect the frame from a dent?

I mean I know out on the concrete good luck but what about indoors?
