Isn't that dark grey cover and not red? Can you post a picture with the cover closed? I happen to have the dark grey cover, but I'm wondering if I should get the red one as well to company the dark grey coverbuddy or just go with grey+grey.

You're kidding about the smart cover right? It's red, you are looking at the inside of the cover, which all colors look like that on the inside.

Very light. It doesn't add much weight at all. I wouldn't even compare it to a folio.

Here's some pics of it with both. Sorry about the horrible lighting. I would say get gray as they match perfectly, but obviously that's up to you.


Thumb resize.

Actually, each Smart Cover's insides match the outside. If it's red on the outside, it's red on the inside. Here's a pic of both.

Are there any similar cases to the coverbuddy? I really want a matte black version. I'm willing to try out a different case as long as it offers the same type of all around protection, including buttons.

Why not just get the CoverBuddy? It's only $20 and covers everything including the ports (which are removable). Most cases have been leaving a huge cutout for the speakers which the CoverBuddy does not. Best one around, IMO.

Because I don't like that the black one is glossy (I prefer matte). If I can't find a similar case, I'll settle for the dark gray.

Gotcha. That's why I went with the dark gray. I had tried the clear and black, but I just can't stand the glossy cases.

I'll probably end up with the dark gray as well. Do you think I'd he able to squeeze it on with my invisible shield on the back? I won't have the Smart Cover attached at all times and I'm afraid the exposed area on the back will get scratched.

It's possible, but I can't guarantee it. The CoverBuddy is a pretty tight fit. On that note, I wouldn't worry about the small area left. I use mine all the time without the SC and it would be hard to scratch that small area. If you are worried, you may check out an Incipio Feather. It doesn't have the cutout for the Smart Cover.

Just bought my CoverBuddy on eBay a few minutes ago. Got it for $14.00 shipped through best offer on my first try. Wish I tried to offer less so anyone looking for a great deal on these this seller will go as low as $14 shipped possibly less. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=170965715691

Not bad, but I'll pay the extra 6 bucks for SwitchEasy's 2 year warranty. I had a concern about mine they day I got it and they offered to just send me another. Of course that's after confirming my order number, which you won't have with eBay purchases. (Seriously, they have fantastic customer service.)

Of course on the flip side, if you do have a problem, $14 is easily replaceable.

Which one do you like better yourself? Grey on grey or the red on grey?

You're probably asking the wrong person. I'm so indecisive that I've owned 2 red covers and 2 gray covers and I have blue one on the way. I have however decided to keep the gray one as it's pretty nice looking since the case and cover match very well. It looks like they came together and were made by the same company.

I only ordered the blue one to see if I like the contrast of the blue. If not, I'll be throwing it on the Marketplace here.

For those interested in a black matte back, I received a response from Incipio that they will be making a Smart Feather for the mini after all. No ETA yet though...

You might give elago's Slim Fit case a try, then. Looks like it's Smart Cover-compatible and matte black. I can't personally vouch for their iPad mini products as I haven't tried them, but I absolutely love their iPhone cases.

Wow. I love the look of that Elago. I use the Elago Outfit as my iPhone 5 case, and I absolutely love it, and this is the best looking snap case I've seen. I'm using a leather back skin now, but I'm tempted to pick one of those up for times I want a little extra protection.

Finally just got my switcheasy to go with my smart cover. Really a fantastic combo. Aside from the strong smell which eventually went away after a day it's great. The dark gray on both really match well. Just wish they would make the black in the matte.

Can anyone recommend a sleeve that will accommodate both pieces? Not crazy about the movement of the Smart Cover when I throw it in my bag.

Thank you for the suggestion. Now if it only had the same protection as the CoverBuddy, it would be perfect.

Great find on the Elago and Feather info. This adds to our choices of good covers.

I've got a good one for sale in my Marketplace thread. It's great for the CoverBuddy w/ Smart Cover. It's even gray too.

Anyone use this ebay store?
Has mixed reviews but has the coverbuddy I want for $13.27 and free shipping. What do you think?

Yeah, you're about 150 posts short. You're required to have 250 posts.
