Anybody use just the Smart Keyboard cover?

Without any other sleeve?

Do you find the new Smart Keyboard for your 11 inch or 12.9 is enough protection when carrying it in your bag and around given it now covers the back?

With this bendgate crap, I went overboard....I only use the smart folio (not the keyboard), but when taking it anywhere I use a pelican case. Just don’t trust this thing in a back pack.

I transport my iPad in my backpack with just the keyboard folio. I haven’t had any bends or damage, but then again, I’m not careless with my things. I don’t throw my backpack around while my $1400 iPad combination is inside and as a result, no bends.

Smart Keyboard only. In my backpack it is either inside my built-in laptop sleeve if I’m not carrying a laptop, or in the main compartment if I am. Not worried about it in the slightest. Been carrying iPads like this for years all over the world.

I just use the keyboard case. If I take it out of the house with me I put it in a padded shoulder bag that I’ve had for years. Haven’t had any problems.

Sometimes I’m lazy and don’t use my sleeve, just putting it straight into my purse with the ASK folio. Fine so far.
