    Default ipad Air: Lightest and thinnest Case?

    This is not a duplicate of the naked or case thread

    The iPad Air is so light no thin that a good case must also be light in order to avoid bulking up. I've previously used the Marware CEO Hybrid. It's a great case that allows for presentations, provides good protection and holds by the corners so as to not obscure the display, but it is heavy. I have pre-ordered the a Belkin Form Fit case. It seems thin, holds by the corners and looks like it will allow easy removal.
    Let's keep this thread going with user reviews of cases. As soon as the Belkin case arrives, I will post a review.

    Yes, with the ipad air, the actual weight of the case becomes an important spec. Yet the case makers don't even list it, not even Apple!

    I purchased the Zagg keyboard for my air and it does bulk it up but the protection is great and removing it from the case is a snap!

    I'm really struggling in the UK to find a light thin case - if anyone here has found a good case let me know.

    I ordered the Envellop Leatherette. It seems to be minimalist in form yet still provides protection. I will update this with a review when it comes in.

    I am sporting a Apple smart cover with a Belkin snap shield for the rear. Very light and great looking combo! You almost can't even tell that the snap shield is on. You can clearly see the Apple logo and all.

    Too bad. It was developing into a good thread. Now it won't be seen by anyone.

    Since this thread pertains to cases for the iPad Air, it was moved to the appropriate forum. I see someone edited the title to include "iPad Air", therefore It should be good now.
