    I preordered it and it is expected to ship on October 30th. I have the iPad Air 1 version on my new Air 2. It works as a temporary case but the cuts outs are way off.
    I got it from Amazon. Here's a link:

    I have never felt a Magpul case. This is a silicon case. I think you will like it. In the mean time I decided to order this case as it was in stock on Amazon: iPad Air 2 Case, LUVVITT CLARITY Soft Skin TPU Rubber Back Cover for iPad Air 2 - Crystal Clear https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ONDNHJQ/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_VFWtub04XZY55

    I would like to try one if they had it in white. Maybe soon they'll offer more colors...

    I think the opposite. I like the design and it has very good grip! I had it on my iPad Air 1.

    I agree that it's certainly not to everyone's taste. I don't particularly like it either. That said there obviously are people who do like them.

    The case has very good grip and it feels very nice. It is on the heavy side but with the very light weight of the air 2, I sign really notice the difference. I recommend it .

    Not to hijack the thread but my wife has it and it makes the iPad very heavy. Too much for her/my liking. Other than that it's great for the price. Also it fits well except the home button area. It jiggles/flaps a little bit there. Probably the soft rubber material effect.

    I just got mine and I don't find that it makes the iPad heavy at all... It's pretty light even with it on. It's a bit slippery though, but it feels slim. It will be good until more cases are released

    I canceled order for this and bought LuvVitt clear case instead. That is true, it looks like tire and if new smels of tire. I have this on my old IPod GS.

    It does not smell at all. The luvvitt, IMO, is worse in protection of the poetic graph grip.

    It might not provide as much protection but it looks a lot better and doesn't add any negligible bulk which to me is more important. I've never dropped or banged and of the iPads I've owned so don't see the need for an awful looking and bulky case like the Poetic.

    I have the luvvitt case as well. I used that before my poetic case came. The luvvitt provides minimal protection while showing off the design of the iPad. I like that. I just think that if I drop it the iPads screen will crack.
