    Am I missing something? I can't find anything on Amazon or anywhere for that matter online for an iPad Air 2 case. Everything just says in stock on xx date (november sometime). Anyone have a link to a good case for Air 2 that I can buy and have shipped today (or soon?)

    The Apple smart case is fantastic as long as your willing to spend $80. I love it myself and the only one I would consider

    I'm in the same boat. Got my Air 2 today but can't find a case. Using a sleeve for now. Ordered the Apple case but delivery not until the 27th.

    Are there any cases similar to the Incipio Feather, but with a sandstone finish?

    That is the same one I bought. Similar to the apple case, except no magnets.:rolleyes:
    But, for half the price I can deal with it.

    I ordered this Luvvitt Clarity shell case today. I didn't realize it's got mic cutouts which the new Air doesn't even have, hope it wasn't made blindly ahead of the launch. If it fits good I don't mind the cutouts so we'll see.

    In my opinion, this is the all around best case you can get for the iPad air or air 2.

    I did research on the clamcase and saw a lot of people complaining that the hinge is a weak spot. It cracks and then breaks. I don't know if this has been rectified from the Air case to the Air 2 case, but I'm sure people will write reviews soon to let everyone know.

    Thanks, I read about the cracks too, and it does concern me somewhat. I also read far more positive reviews too. None of them are perfect and some will have defects but I'm going to give them a shot. If it doesn't work out, I'll just get something else.

    Well, I just got the one I ordered from Amazon in the mail today. Only cost me $60 and is an all aluminum design, but with a more traditional hinge. I like that the keyboard is backlit (backlight auto shuts off after a few seconds) and that I can change the colors as I want. Fit is perfect with the iPad Air 2 and like that the whole thing acts like a smart coer, so when I close it, both the keyboard and the ipad go to sleep mode. Just like any MacBook, you can tilt to any angle and it stays there. Very pleased with it for $60. Only thing I don't like is the crappy cutout on the back so you can see the Apple logo. Kind of cheesy.

    That one wasn't available when I was looking. Nice find, I may go for this one instead. I like the ALL aluminum aspect. How does the typing feel compared to a standard keyboard? The reviews of how well the ClamCase keyboard performed was a big push for me,

    It does not compare to the wireless iMac keyboard or the MacBook keyboard, because it is smaller and in a 9.7" frame. Keys are obviously closer together. Other than that, the feel when tapping the keys is similar, key travel is similar, there is no clickity clack noise like you find on cheap keyboard, the backlight on the keys is acceptable with 3 brightness settings (a feature I like, especially in dark rooms at night!), and I do like the fact that it has the iPad specific keys, instead of F1-F12 keys at the top of the keyboard.

    I have only been using this for a day, but I really enjoy it. And I def like that it is aluminum. Matches the iPad nicely. I hae found one small mistake around the camera on the back (looks like it is a tad cockeyed), but it does not block the camera in any way. For $60, I can overlook it though.

    BTW,
    If you didn't get this, there is now a $25 coupon for the clamcase. Here is the code. I am not using it.
