A case that covers all buttons, ports, dock? Or shield that protects Home Button?

    I just got an iPad, and I've been searching online for hours for a case like this.

    I need:

    -Covers all ports and buttons, including the dock (has "flip tops" for them)
    -Covers the Home button.

    If possible, but not necessary:

    -A handle on the back for your hand or ability to stand up the iPad.

    I like the Sumajin here, but there's no Home Button protection:

    Also love the Switch Easy Reptile, but again no Home Button protection:


    Or is there a shield for the front that covers the Home button (in which case either the Sumajin or Reptile would be okay). I think the BestSkinEver shield has a little Home button protector. Are there other screen shields like it?


    Thanks for your help! :)

    Why in God's name do you want a home button protection???
    just use scotch tape on top of the home button!

    i am picking up my switcheasy reptile tonight! I think it provides ample cover (i would not say protection) and a good grip!

    The iskin duo looks gr8 in black and Diablo red!!!

    but really does the home button protection preserve the original feel ? or does it become clikety-clack?

    Thanks. I love the Otterbox. It is almost perfect...except for that hole in the back of it. Plus, I don't know when they're releasing it. Same with the IvySkin. Love it, but it's not out yet, and I heard their CS blows.

    I'm close to settling for the iSkin with a PowerSupport shield.

    Does anyone know if there's a thin silicone type case (Belkin Grip Vue, Nude) that's all-encompassing -- covers or plugs up the ports, dock, and buttons? I'd like the option of putting the whole thing into a folio-type case (like the Griffin), but I don't think the iSkin would fit, so if there's a thinner option, that'd be wonderful. Thank you!

    The grip vue is made out of TPU. If that's what you're looking for, I suggest you search eBay. I got a TPU case for a fraction of the Grip Vue. Same look, same material, smaller price.
