    Found the Wallee (expensive), the Simplism (not a fan of faux leather, but looks OK) and some cheap chinese ones (which look fine, but seem to be a little too cheap).

    Any experiences with one of these or recommendations for others? Lightweight would be nice, genuine leather (at least the strap, like the New Trent, which unfortunately is not available for the mini) would be great.

    Get a couple of these: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1533605

    And add a strap of your own. I suggest skipping the leather and insted going for elastic bands; I've used those myself for several iPad mini accessories (stylus holders), and they're great. I bought a roll of elastic band from the local hobby store, shouldn't be too hard to find.

    That thing is great, it just has minor (major for me) flaw. I need to hold the ipad in landscape orientation and that will be impossible without twisting the hand to an unfomfortable position :(

    Another thing you might try since being able to rotate it is important:

    Buy one of those cheap back covers. Go to a hobby store and grab some velcro. Also buy a glove, perhaps something like a bicycle glove with cut off fingers. Glue strips of velcro to the back of the case, and sow a few pieces o the opposite kind of velcro on the glove.

    I am not really good with handicraft, but that sounds like an awesome feasible idea :)
