i-Blason Gel Back Cover? (Or other Smart-compatible back cover?)

Was looking for a Smart Cover compatible back cover for my Mini (something basic) and found this on Amazon:

http://amzn.com/B009XCIQ52

Does anyone here know anything about this company or own one of these and a Mini already that can speak to the quality and whether it fits well? I like the idea of a flexible Gel cover, except that I worry that it may stretch or fit more loosely than a hard cover.

Btw I wish these companies wouldn't print their damn names in ugly font on the product.

[Edit: I guess they didn't start shipping these till Nov. 1 so maybe nobody has one yet.]

I was looking at these for my daughter's new iPad Mini. She bought the Smart cover, but was looking for back cover to coincide with it. This is the only back cover I have seen so far that says it works with smart cover. I bought a case, that is terrible, from Best Buy, that the magnet doesn't even work right. It will protect for now, but desperately looking for a better case for her that has magnetic cover and back protection.

I have 30 days to return to Best Buy, which I will, since the Sleep/Wake magnet doesn't work at all. She also bought the smart cover, but haven't unwrapped it yet. Now hearing bad things about the magnets on that also. Hurry up and make some better cases, anyone?
