I debated this for a short while, and I still ended up with Apple's case solution. I got the charcoal gray smart cover and case for my space gray iPad. First and foremost, I was very disappointed that Apple no longer offers the leather option, but only offers silicon, priced at $40 more for the full set, versus the previous one piece option. Second, they don't offer a black color, which is also disappointing. And lastly, the iPad is a LOT heavier with the smart cover and case combo. However, its a nice fit, feels, no complaints at all so far, besides what I've already mentioned.
