    I'm ordering an iPad Air 2 tonight to replace my old iPad 3.

    I need a detachable cover, so the official Apple case is out.

    Anyone know if any iPad Air 2 back shells are out in the wild for sale yet? I'm traveling in Hong Kong and can scour the local shops if that's the case.

    The thing that sucks with this one and a lot of them is that by being Smart Cover compatible it's got an ugly cutout. I don't see it in the pic but pretty sure it's there. I too am looking for a shell only case, don't know why it seems too much to ask for.

    I'm looking for the same thing. I always order a smart cover just as an alternative, but my favorite cases are always back shell cases. I loved the Belkin Grip Vue for the first iPad, and the Speck Candyshell for the Mini was great too. I'm sure there will be more options if we wait just a bit longer.

    I'm using the Caudabe hard shell on my Air with a Smart Cover and love it. I sent them a tweet asking when it would be available for the Air 2, and they just said "soon"
