    Poetic ThinShell Back Smart Cover Partner Case for Apple iPad Air Clear

    Just received this case today. Ordered from Amazon. Very slow delivery.

    It's a hard clear case with a soft touch, grippy finish. It fits tight. Some of the holes do not line up perfect.
    Price is $2.95 + shipping. Killer deal.

    Not really. Bummer I ended up pulling the corners of my BSE matte back skin.

    Surprisingly this case does add a bit of weight to the Air. I guess the Air is so light, any additional weight is noticeable.

    Just got mine yesterday. Delivery was slow, wish it had been prime shipping, but it wasn't available.

    I like the case, doubt it will offer any protection in a fall. The case just barely has a lip on the screen side, so if you set the ipad down with the screen facing down, it will likely rest on the glass. I know, who does that? But people do....

    The smart cover cutout edge was jagged in a couple places that required a little 220 grit sand paper to smooth it out. Feels good now. The plastic is not as slippery, and has a good grip, and provides a warmer feel than the cold aluminum back.

    I fully expect the tabs to the left side (where the cutout for a Smart Cover is located) to break, and render the shell useless, but while it lasts, I'll enjoy the case. I'd buy again, if the tabs last at least a couple months.

    Prime shipping would win me over for certain.

    Edit: Forgot to add that the edges on the case do not interfere with my screen protector.
