It seems Apple is set on only offering (1) Smart Case of the leather variety for iPad Air.. Currently I have a smart case on my current 3rd Gen of the 'Polyurathane' material.. I actually prefer it over the leather and I've been reading reviews on multiple sites and the Leather Cases don't seem to be getting a very high praise.

I wouldn't mind forking the extra $$$ if they looked good, came in better colors, etc but it seems like they are dirt magnets. Has anyone used a different brand/alternate case?

I saw this one on ebay

But it's hard to tell what the quality is like, and the different ones on Amazon look to add quite a bit of bulk.

Here's a couple.

I've ordered both but haven't received them yet so I can't comment on quality.

Others on here have reviewed the Poetic though and said that although the wake/sleep magents didn't work with the Air upon arrival -- replacements that will work will be shipped free of charge to all customers.
Sounds like pretty good customer service.

I've had pretty good luck with poetic cases.
