    So I'm awaiting my iPad 2 in the mail and I already ordered my smart cover. I will be carrying my iPad around in my bookbag (it has a pouch for CPUs etc) because I will be using it for class and such. I was thinking about getting a sleeve to hold it, but I'm also worried about protecting the back. What do you guys suggest? Stick with just the smart cover, or get a sleeve for it also? Or maybe another option? I also want to protect it while it's in my bag (i have a North Face Reacon bag). I'd also like something not to bulky and allows me
    To show the iPads beauty. Thanks!

    I am in the same dilemma as you right now. I am considering purchasing the ColcaSac sleeve for the iPad 2 with smart cover. Here is the link for it: http://www.colcasac.com/ipad-sleeve/uintah-ipad-sleeve.

    You can apply a skin to the back for scratch protection.

    I highly recommend the STM iPad jacket. I picked one at staples for $25 and love it. You can also get it from amazon.

    I was about to say the same thing. The Pad Jacket is by far the best and most versatile iPad case/sleeve I've used. If you want a shoulder bag (like a mini laptop bag) that can be converted into a sleeve when you need it to go into a backpack (the shoulder strap comes off), this is perfect. It has just enough room for my iPad, my glasses case, and my iPhone, as well as a small notebook, and it still doesn't feel very bulky.

    For $23 on Amazon you can't go wrong.

    I have the black leather Smart Case, but wanted something minimal to take the iPad out and about in. Ordered this, from Waterfield Designs: suede jacket-ipad
