I ordered a clear iPad 2 back cover from Amazon for less than $5 including shipping. It arrived yesterday and fits great. I am using it with my SmartCover until I figure out exactly how I will use my new iPad.

I used the Belkin snap on for the back of my 2; had to buy a second one as as first cracked horribly despite normal use. My second one has a crack on the lower left side; cracked within 2 weeks of use; very annoying as I really like the concept of the back shield and the look of the Belkin one. I'm using it on my new iPad until I get a back shield made specifically for it. The fit of this one is a little loose on the new iPad. I also use a smart cover.

Just got my Incipio Smart Feather back case in yesterday. It fits perfectly, and the iridescent grey color goes great with my dark grey smart cover. I also really like how it locks the smart cover in place so my six-year-old can't accidentally pull it it off during use. Once I get my magnets in and mod this thing it'll be perfect.

So I got my magnets in today. You know, it was a great idea in theory, but in execution... not so much. At least, not in the way I managed to execute it.
Protip - If you get too much superglue on your case, DO NOT TRY TO GET IT OFF WITH ACETONE! It will eat the finish right off of your case. That said, though there are now a few cosmetic blemishes on my case, the magnets work perfectly to hold the smart cover in place where it needs to be, so functionally it's exactly what I wanted.

It doesn't feel at all like the ipad 2 did with that belkin case. It's been a month or so since i sold it so hard to remember. But i don't remember sharp edges or it being this uncomfortable especially held in landscape view. Maybe i got a bad case or something.. I feel like i'm using a giant palm pre. Got ridges in my palms.
Anyone else having problems with this?

I grabbed another Belkin Snap Shield hoping i might have better luck. Smoke colored this time instead of clear. This is much better than the last one. I think i can lay that case search to rest now. Though i might keep an eye on iSkin Solo Smart reviews. I'm not sure how i'd like having the smart cover locked in though or the ports covered.
So smart cover, belkin back, stm stash for when it leaves the house with room for accessories.
