Hello. I just bought an iPad Air. It has not arrived yet, but I do want to have a case (or some form of) on it from Day 1. I'm looking for the absolute lightest (affordable) solution. Either a case with a front cover or combination of Apple Smart Cover with a back cover. So far, I've taken a look at the following options: Apple Smart Case ($79) - At 145g it is the lightest case with a front cover I've been able to find, but it is also the most expensive. There are reports of the front cover not laying flat against the front glass. Also, the front cover does not latch onto the back of the case. Moshi iGlaze VersaCover ($43.80 on Amazon) - This case weights approximately 172g. It has a rear magnet to keep the front cover in place when flipped back. There are a few reports of the plastic casing developing cracks. I'm leaning towards this option, but the weight is a bit of a disappointment. LUVVIT SILVERBACK Protective Back Skin ($19.95 on Amazon) - This adds almost no additional weight to the device, but also provides the least amount of protection. It would have to be combined with an Apple Smart Cover, which can be removed at any time to reduce the overall weight. I do not like that the corners and top edges would be fully exposed. Any Body Protective Skin (Skinomi, ArmorSuit, ...) ($4.90 - $20) - Just like the option above, this adds almost no weight to the device but would have to be combined with a removable Apple Smart Cover. Many people swear by this form of protection. The installation is semi-difficult with special liquid solution which needs to be applied to the device. Corners appear to be the most problematic. Are there any other options I've missed? I'd like to know what everyone else is using to protect their investment.
