Is anyone using a Skin on the back of their iPP along with the Smart Keyboard?

I'm edging to the Brydge Keyboard but may consider the Smart KB as a stop-gap (April until the Brydge is available) - I would however like to protect the rear of the iPad when its not attached to a case and wondered if its possible to use the skin and keyboard??

I’m using a skin on the rear of my iPad Pro 12.9” 2018 with the regular iPad Folio cover without an issue. The magnets are strong and the skin doesn’t seem to impact the strength at all.
I had preordered the Brydge keyboard, but have now decided to cancel it since I’ll find it too heavy to take to work each day. If I used my iPad primarily at home, I’d prefer the Brydge, but I’ve reconsidered since I need portability. I’m now considering the Apple Smart Keyboard Folio since I feel that it will be more portable and also let me continue to easily use the skin on the back of the iPad without issues. I fear that the Bridge hinge design may scrape the skin and maybe peal it off.
