    Do any of you know of a product like the thin fully surrounding case with Smart Cover Apple had for earlier iPads?

    Items I see so far appear to be molded plastic or TPU. They all seem thicker than the “Product Red” covers the whole iPad item I got with my Retina model 5-6 years ago. Something like that old item is what I’m after.

    Thank you.

    I got this one. Yes, the back is TPU, but the front is similar to the Apple Smart Cover. It has seemed thin to me, I've been quite happy with the case after 4 months, it has held up well so far.

    I've been using A TPU back cover from Amazom along with an Apple Smart Cover on mine. Not as nice as the old Smart Cases but serves the same purpose and keeps the iPad relatively bulk free.

    Thanks. I got that in black. It is indeed slim for TPU, a good fit, and the angles on a table work well.

    The fit is so good that I wonder if some recent complaints are from people who have the wrong iPad and case match.

    Less than positive reviews on color are not something I considered with black.

    It wouldn't surprise me if many of the complaints were from people who bought it for the wrong iPad. When Apple decided to name it simply the "iPad," it pretty much ensured there would be confusion. I've been very happy with the case, it has held up well and still looks great.
