We have the handled one, got it at xmas for the kids. Handle which doubles as a stand is great. But ours is called the frogz. Got it at radioshack.

However, prior to that I had this setup:

BSE - bestskinsever.com back protection.
Apple smart cover original - black leather.
STM jacket. - awesome carrying case which fit the iPad with smart cover.

And for better kitchen counter use and better FaceTime angling, we have the Brookstone X-stand. Most of the time it sat in that, but you could take it out very easily (not a tight fit) and then slap on the smart cover and throw it in the STM jacket for on the go.

However, once we gave it to the kids it hardly ever comes out of the frogz rubber case anymore, which is why I'm getting a Mini this weekend.

Chosing an iPad was easier by far than chosing a case for it. I find that I'm Goldilocks with the bowls of porridge: "This case is too heavy, this case doesn't fit right, this case is too flimsy, too expensive, good for travel only, good around the house only, etc."

So far I've returned two cases to their stores and am still on the lookout for the perfect case for my mini. Might have to design my own!

Their motto should be Brydge, when you want to spend as much on a keyboard as you did on your ipad. Wow that things expensive!

I own a few cases. What works best for me is Twelvesouth Bookbook V2. A bit pricy though.

My favorite is my oberon celtic pattern for ipad 2. I added magnets to it and it acts now acts like a smart cover. My second choice is the Sena Florence case.

Incase neoprene sleeve is my primary choice. Mostly because I like a naked iPad in my hands. I also use a smart cover for it's abilities as a stand. Those two have me covered I guess. Though I would like to have a TPU case on hand too. I might pick up the ZooGue Social Case. I have one on my Galaxy S3 and it's fantastic.

That is the case I have ordered for my iPad mini; their products look attractive and well made, with a craftsman's attention to detail.

Vote iPad best ipad case

Hi Guys,

Sorry if this isn't active/relevant anymore, but I recently bought a cool iPad case and thought i'd share it with my fellow Apple brothers and sisters!

I just purchased an iPad case from a British brand called BUKcase. There website is - www.BUKcase.co.uk

The design (of the case) is slightly similar to other products on the market, but the build quality and feel of the product is far more superior. I've owned several cases like DODO, P&Q and none of them felt solid as this. They also have a unique locking system called the 'tommy lock' that holds your iPad really securely but if I want to remove it, its really easy to! I had a problem with another case (wont say their name) but once it was in, I couldnt get it back out.

And best of all, I got a cool little plastic moustache with the case!

I hope that helps and If you got any design questions fire away! I'm a product designer and delighted to be a part of this community.

Have a great day!

Classy products, from a classy company. BookBook from TwelveSouth is what I use for my iPad case.

And, for what it is worth, I have this community to thank for bringing the company and their products to my attention. It was a chance reference on a thread on this forum which made me aware of the company, so naturally, I googled them, and have since bought from them.
