The Logitech Logi BLOK Protective Keyboard Case for the iPad Air 2 offers their new ribbed design to absorb impact when dropped while providing the great keyboard available in the Canvas and Type+ keyboard cases.

It's difficult to install, but once in, provides many features such as a built-in stand, detachable keyboard, and water resistant materials.

You will feel the weight on this case though, thankfully the keyboard is detachable, so you don't have to carry it with you if you don't need to.

Should Logitech ever produce an ultrathin version of the Logi Blok I'll be all over it.
100%. The functionality is there, the implementation is lacking a little with too much a focus on protection.

It's not ultrathin, but you can buy the shell without a keyboard or stand component. It definitely adds some weight (their website says 165g), but it is very comfortable to hold and provides more protection than the thin shells would do.

I like mine.

Nice. I am aware of those alternative options that Logitech offers. I really like the whole package though... the idea of magnetically attaching/detaching the iPad from the keyboard is what really makes it a versatile combo for me. My experiences with the Surface RT and Surface 2 confirmed that.

An ultrathin Logi Blok would give me a Surface-like form-factor for the iPad.

I currently switch between the Anker keyboard cover and a knock-off smart cover. I may eventually break down and get the Logi Blok keyboard cover. (especially if it drops in price)

Ok. I understand what you meant better now. I've never used a Surface, so "ultrathin" and "keyboard cover" were mutually exclusive in my brain.
