Hey everyone,

I got an iPad Air the other day (First Gen), and I'm having a lot of trouble trying to find a case for it.

I got the Smart Cover in Red (with a black iPad, looks so good), but I need a back case to go with it so the back doesn't get scratched up. Every case I seem to see on the market though comes with a stupid cover built in which I don't want.

My old iPad mini had the same debacle and I got a case on trademe, but it broke shortly after so I want to avoid this if I can and get one from a store. 

Anyone have any suggestions? Or seen one like this in a store somewhere?

 

Cheers! Any advice appreciated. :D

-Sam

You need the BookBack Skin.  I've been using them on my iPads for years.  Adds no bulk, gives better grip, and protects the back perfectly.

fizzychicken: try searching for shell rather than case

eg

With my iPhones and iPads I've always preferred to have covers that I can toss aside when the device is in use so I bought the Hershel sleeve for mine.
