Here are alternative options for back covers that work with the iPad Pro smart keyboard especially if you are on a budget: TPU case: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0171BYP10?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00 This back cover fits the iPad pro perfectly and it's thin, translucent, and light. It's the cheapest option at about 10 dollars. There are no issues attaching it to the smart keyboard and I used this one before my coverbuddy came. If you are like me, this is the easiest cover to remove the iPad pro from and put it in apples smart case or alternative case for media purposes. Coverbuddy with Apple pencil holder: http://www.switcheasy.com/coverbuddy.php Now, this may be the perfect back cover for most of everybody and it also attaches to the Apple smart keyboard easily. I have this cover too and it's beautiful and works perfectly. The Apple pencil actually has a holder in this case which makes this back cover the most convenient. There are several color options and the price is around 30 dollars which is still significantly less expensive than apple's smart back cover that does not have a slot for the Apple pencil. Only drawback, not as easy to remove iPad pro from like the TPU cover above but pretty simple nonetheless. This cover is also more durable than the TPU and should outlast it and offers better protection.
