    I believe the Zum is the thinnest. I had the Belkin snap and it was thicker than the Zum. I also didn't like the Belkin as it had rough edges and I really wanted a case where the smart cover would be attached to the case itself. I don't have a iBiason but from what I've read it's a tad thicker than the Zum but it comes in more colors.

    +1 on ZUM. I don't know the exact delta between it and the Belkin, but it feels quite a bit thinner and/or closer to the iPad to me.

    Where can I purchase the zum? And does it come in more colors than frost?

    If you want more colors, I have an Incipio smart feather. Same smart cover lock in mechanism. Just as thin. Only drawback is that they leave the top and bottom slightly uncovered. But I enjoy it a lot!

    Edit: Zum SC only comes in frost at the moment.

    Not sure about the belkin, but I think the zum is slightly thinner than the iblason

    Not sure about the Belkin but;

    Zum frost = 1mm
    iBlason = 1.2 mm

    Splitting hairs here really so doubt you'd even notice that small a difference. I use the Iblason myself and really dig it. Don't think you can go wrong with either choice. Considering all these kinds of cases are meant to be thin/lightweight, I sincerely doubt you'd find any great difference in thickness between them. Stats wise, the Zum frost is the thinnest.

    How about KaysCase. It's definitely thinner than Belkin. I just don't know how you guys find out if it's 1.0 or 1.1mm. Belkin would be thin enough for me.

    I am going to with the Black Frost version of the i-blason or possibly the dark gray to match my smart cover.

    Does anyone have a picture of

    dark gray back cover and dark gray smart cover?
