I just got the case today... I will give impressions tomorrow after I get a chance to use it. I was wondering how bulky it would be but it seems ok to me. I like that the thickness near the smartcase hinge sticks out a littler more than the hinge so it might protect it better than slimmer cases in that area. The weight is based on my cheap shipping scale but it should be close enough to give a comparison. iPad2 by itself is 1 lb 5.5 ounces. iPad2 with yoobao real leather folio case is 1 lb 11.5 ounces. iPad2 with apple smart case is 1 lb 10 ounces. iPad2 with Tucano CORNICE is 1 lb 11.5 ounces. iPad2 with apple smart case and Belkin Snap Shield is 1 lb 12.5 ounces iPad2 with apple smart case and Tucano MAGICO is 1 lb 12.5 ounces iPad2 with Melkco Slimme Leather case is 1 lb 14 ounces. iPad2 with apple smart case and griff case is 1 lb 14.5 ounces.
