I didn't get it but played with one at BB yesterday.

The iPad 3rd Gen fits it fine. The bezel cover was a little off kilter. For example, the home button wasn't perfectly centered in the little cutout made for it. But the camera was in the price place and since the sides are all open everything else was fine.

I just found the case too bulky. I thought the same of it when I looked at it for my iPad 2.

I'm a huge Incase fan in general. But that one...not so much.

i had it for the ipad 2 and am now using it for the ipad 3. the user above is correct about the fitment issues. it is a great case, but it does add a considerable amount of weight. i am going to try to find a lighter book case.

Are you guys talking about the $99 version of the incase bookjacket?

Anyways how much more weight does it add to the iPad?
I am looking for a functional yet a little light weighted case for everyday use!

I have been looking at all the leather version of these cases below,

The incase leather book jacket select
Booq pad agenda
The new booq pad folio
Belkin leather cinema folio
Hex code folio for the iPad
Etc. and all these cases are around $99 except the belkin which is listed as $59 but not yet released!

You guys have any more suggestions?

i actually have the book jacket classic, but they're basically all the same design, just different texture. i would say it adds 2 extra lbs. i weighed myself with and without the ipad/case and the difference was 3.4lbs. when i take off the case, the ipad literally feels weightless because the added weight of the case is so much.
