    I ordered a pack of Body Shieldz screen protectors from eBay, and they're a thicker plastic than usual. The glass is bound to add some weight, but probably not a lot. Better than nothing... ;)

    I ordered this Invellop Glass today. Will post pics when it arrives, but will probably take some time as I'm in AU. Costs about $20 delivered.

    I was looking for SGP to release GLAS.tR for Air, but this offer from Invellop seems cheap and worth a try.

    I use these for my DLSRs and they are super awesome for cameras. I've dropped really heavy things on them (lenses usually) and they shatter but don't create any damage on the actual camera.

    I'm not going to use on on my ipad unless the Skintomi wrap bugs me. The glass would def add some weight but might be worth it.

    Invellop has the white or black border, is that a good thing?
    I'm used to full clear glas.t's on my devices...

    Yeah...keep us posted! I have an InvisibleShield HD on my Air right now and I like it a lot. However, I put a Bodyguardz Pure on my 5S and there's just no comparison to the tempered glass. I just won't spend $70 to get a Pure for my Air!

    Im guessing everyone is using the same stuff, and just brand it and charge extortionate amounts for the brand (a bit like Apple *cough* cough*) after a bad experience with Martin Fields on my iPad 3 (peeling) and rainbow effect, i'm just not going to overspend again (especially after the Ipad 4 surprise knocking a great deal of resale value off my ipad 3). So may just go for this cheap one, how clear was the bodyguards and was it a grease magnet (the above should be similar) and worth testing for the price.

    now i just need to wait for this and Anker Ultra Slim iPad Air Case in UK (and hopefully gen 2 with auto sleep) and i can buy Air (not going to buy first and end up scratching it like last time).

    From the pics it looks like they didn't make a cutout for the front-camera. Can you test image quality?

    In my own experience, I've found glass protectors to be great for what they are, but completely unnecessary. The stock glass is strong enough, and unless you work in an environment where things are going to be dropping on your ipad on the regular (I can't even imagine a scenario, maybe a metal work shop) you probably won't need one.

    I owned the Spigen glass TR for my iphone 5, and while it was thin, it added a considerable heftiness to my phone in terms of everyday feel. It also changed the appearance of text, wherein all the text seemed rounded-out and slightly magnified. Not a bad thing, mind you, but just different from the un-glassed experience.

    But if you guys need it, they are def better than plastic.

    Yes the adhesive is on the bezel and it was very easy to install

    We know the front camera sucks anyway but I don't think the glass change the quality or make it worst how do you upload pics from the ipad?

    I just installed the invellop tempered glass screen protector for the ipad air. Install was easy. The camera does not have a cutout, but the camera looks okay to me.

    I do see rainbow effects on the screen. On bright apps/pages its fine, but on darker ones I can definitely see rainbows.

    The protector is held by adhesive on the edges. The borders are colored black or white to hide the adhesive. The transparent part of the protector doesn't stick to the screen. It just sits on it and is why rainbow effects start to develop. As you move your finger around the screen, the rainbows move with it.

    The protector is good as a screen protector though.

    I was expecting something like the iLoome flexible glass protector that I have on my iPhone, but this isn't it.

    I am immensely impressed by the Bodyguardz Pure on my 5S. It's like it's not there at all. Completely clear and feels like the glass as though it isn't protected. No chipping...great stuff. Just can't justify the cost for the Air.

    After hearing a bit about the Invelop, I'm gonna stick with the InvisibleShield HD I already have installed.

    you right I see the rainbows now is not noticeable when using more when the screen is off and you cleaning the glass something I find weird is that my screen doesn't look as bright as before I guess is the double glass

    Ultimately, the rainbows are there because the glass is not adhered to the screen completely...only around the edges. The Bodyguards Pure (and the Spigen Glas.t) adhere to the screen completely with some sort of clear adhesive that doesn't leave a residue when removed. That adherence removes the rainbow effect and effectively makes the protector part of the display. Same as InvisibleShield HD.

    I'm getting a few items for my iPad air from invellop and they are giving me a full refund if I review it.

    iPad Air tempered glass

    The glad screen protector has a grid effect but hopefully that goes away after some time. It took me 5 times to re apply it until I saw no dust. The glass screen protector shows the dust but no bubble around it like plastic screen protectors. I like it!
