    Well, color me disappointed. I saw the title and was looking forward to the review of this Ultra Light case.

    I do hope you post a review, but why post that your ordered one?

    Sorry to disappoint but I was just giving people a heads-up. They shipped today so hopefully it'll be here in a week or so and I'll post a review.

    I just emailed Lioncase asking about how long their current christmass sale is on the iPad air case and also its wieght, here the reply:

    "The net weight of lioncase Folio Shield for iPad Air is around 205g.
    It will be on sale until Dec 26, 2013. It will take 2-3 working day(s) for product packaging plus 7-14 Working Day(s) for delivery to US location for your reference."

    Mine shipped from Hong Kong, should be able to receive it in a few days (they sent it via EMS).

    look forward to your views on the case, in general how are lioncase products, if anyone has used them before and is 205 grams/7oz approx a good weight?

    I just received my case today. Initial impressions: it feels quite okay, feels the inside material feels quite cheap, but faux leather is okay. The case is very very tight, I found it very hard to pry the iPad out once I put it in. Cutouts are aligned. The iPad tends to slip at the flattest viewing angle.

    Most disappointing thing for me though is that the magnet is not strong enough - the front cover doesn't stick when you hold it to the side or upside down :(

    All in all do you think its worth the sale price of $20? How light but is it compared to any other cases you have users, I was thinking of getting it to tide me over till I get the flux in April, but started getting doubts now :(

    Have you tried contacting lioncase, as the chap replies within a day, maybe you got a bad one from the batch or they are going o fix it,

    I think it's well worth $20, but I would not recommend it as a temporary case because it's really really hard to get the iPad out of the case once you put it in (or you're at risk of scratching your unit). I think 200g seems accurate. I'm currently using Uniea Lucid, and I feel that the Lioncase is just a tad bit lighter.

    I did email them to ask whether this was a product design or defect.

    No I didn't, but not planning to put it back in unless I'm sure it's the case I'll be using in the long run.
