I like it. I have the Midnight Blue case and smart cover for my new IPP 9.7. For me, the price was not a concern, and neither is the weight. What I like is the precise fit and the low bulk. The silicone is easy to clean and is holding up better than the leather smart case I had on my Air 1. It also provides a good grip in my hands and does not get slippery over time or saturated with oils and lotions, like the leather case for my iPhone 6S did (switched that out for a silicone model and never looked back).Anyone think this combo is great?
There were no Apple silicone cases for iPad 4. That was polyeurthane and WAY thinner than the silicone cases (I've had both). I believe the silicone cases are hard plastic cases with silicone and microfiber surrounding it, whereas the iPad 2-4 cases were just thin layers of polyurethane and microfiber without the hard plastic frame, except around the edges.Surprised to see the combo is perceived as heavy. Haven't received mine yet but judging from the full Apple silicone case for my iPad 4, it was the lightest case I came across at that time.
Glad you pointed out. Sorry I forgot.There were no Apple silicone cases for iPad 4. That was polyeurthane and WAY thinner than the silicone cases (I've had both).

Something is hard inside giving the whole thing a rigid structure. It's not your run-of-the-mill silicone case through and through - which is much more "floppy" for lack of a better term. Guess we'll never know what's inside until someone cuts theirs in half ... and I have a feeling it won't be us doing that experimentI am not sure if there is actually a hard plastic case inside. Rather it is a silicone shell with interior microfiber lining.
Everybody's different but I went with the Royal Blue Smart Cover and the Gray Silicone Case. I'll get it tomorrow for some picture ops.I just got my pro 9.7. I want to get the Smart Cover/case combo. What color do you think goes best with a black iPad, should I also get both pieces the same or do a contrast?
Overpriced. Heavy. Slippery. No Leather Option. Doesn't come in Black.It's not "silly" at all, just way overpriced, very heavy, and slippery. I also wish that it was still leather and still came in black.
That happened to mine after about three weeks. Apple replaced it . . . That being said, I've stopped using it due to the extra weight the case and cover add. I'm going to carry them in sleeves going forward, and use the keyboard cover when I need it.What's more worrying is in a separate thread that people are saying that the silicone case for the 12.9 pro splits at the corner after a while.
