    Been looking for a plain clear TPU back case for my Air all week but all of them have a weird "S" design on the back that looks terrible. Just found the second no name one you posted and I'm thinking I'll order that.

    That looks promising. I have an Incipio feather case on my iPad 3 and it doesn't look like they will be releasing that version for the Air. That's too bad because I liked it the best of the 4 or 5 cases I tried.

    TeckNet is the one I have ordered for now to use temporarily until one of the better ones is available in particular the SwitchEasy Nude or Coverbuddy.

    Speck says there's is coming soon so that's another option I'm looking at as they have a magnet on the back to keep the Smart Cover from flapping about.

    I've ordered the Poetic Thinshell from Amazon. It says in stock on 10th November.

    When I bought one of these for my mini it arrived scratched up. Got a replacement and that got badly scratched within days, and I was very careful but the plastic seems very soft.

    That is a good one as is the SwitchEasy Nude and Coverbuddy cases. Those would be my recommendations.

    ----------

    In my experience and from what I've read about others experiences its not a good quality product. As I stated in the other thread mine only lasted a few months. My SwitchEasy Nude back cover has lasted me eighteen months now.

    I had that backcover and dirt and grime got inside because there was no cloth...never doing that again. Terrible product. I like the idea of it but the dust gathers in the back of your device.

    Is anybody else pissed off that all these back covers have this cutout for a Smart Cover? I just want the shell I don't want to use a Smart Cover. Smh

    Yup, exactly. It's very convenient if you get the smart cover too. If you don't then it just adds more weight to it so maybe it's better to look elsewhere. Check this video out @0:45

    Anyway, all this cases are so freaking expensive :mad:

    Planning to pick up an iPad Air this friday (my first iPad ever!)

    I usually keep my electronics naked but I kind of feel like the iPad needs a case if only to make it easier to grip.

    What are people's opinions of TPU cases? Not completely sure what that is lol!

    I found this on amazon which looks nice, slim and covers the whole back (not interested in a smart cover right now). But there aren't any reviews and I can't find any user feedback when I google it.

    Anything like this that people would recommend? I just want the slimmest lightest back case I can get (or I might go for a skin instead...not sure yet)

    TPU cover is all I typically use around my house. I don't put screen protectors on anymore either but I don't have any small children in the house either. If I'm taking the iPad with me, I'll put it in a lightweight leather case for the day. So far it works really well with just a TPU cover. It keeps the device light and it's easy to grip. My Air will get the same treatment. I haven't scratched one yet.
