    I got my iPad Air in Space Grey for school, it came with a case, but i'm not putting it on until School starts.

    So for now, my iPad is naked.

    Just got the Otterbox defender for the ipad air and great case except the cover that you can put over the screen that comes with it does not turn screen off any more like the same case for past iPads. Very. Disappointing.

    No scratches on my iPad Air so far and I've had it since the first day of availability and have been using it with a Smart Cover.

    I've been using the Smartcover for a month and no scratches. I wanted to keep the iPad Air thin and light and the Smartcover fits the bill.

    I tried over 10 different cases because I've always had cases for my previous iPads. After the crazy search, I ended up with no case. I have a white carbon fiber type skin on the back and partner up with a few different color smart covers. For me, the skin gives just enough grip and keeps the lightness of the Air. I totally understand I have zero drop protection so will need to be very careful. At home I'm pretty careful and keep it in my purse when traveling.

    On my iPad Mini I have an otter box but I think when I get the iPad Air I might go with the black smart case with a Spigen screen protector.

    So what are you planning to do?
    Till now, I'm really comfortable without any case for my Air and I'm confident enough that I won't drop it anywhere because that's what we humans are all about. We care our cell phones more than ourselves. Feel free to reply harshly but that's the truth.

    Lol, imagine the Otterbox human defender series! A suit to protect you from day to day knocks and scrapes.

    Naked looks better, but I find it much easier to hold on to with a case. I've got the rooCASE Slim Shell Origami and it works great.

    I do what I always do: get an Apple smart cover for the front and nice frost back cover for the back. I got a Caudabe Shell which fits well and has a nice matte see through finish. Caudabe • The Shell

    I picked up the black Smart Case and absolutely love the way it feels in hand on my iPad Air. They improved the case dramatically over the previous version which had those sharp edges that made me crazy.

    You don't find the Otterbox makes your air too bulky? That's my main concern with otter box cases in general.

    I started with a logitech ultra slim keyboard cover. Day 5 dropped it from waist level when it slipped from my grip. Landed perfectly on corner, bent the aluminum keyboard and corner of the air. Screen exploded. Thank God for Best Buy Total Protection Plan. Had to wait till the 15th day for plan to take effect, then they replaced it.
    Did a fix in keyboard case so it is still usable, put the baby into a Survivor blue case and I am still a little testy about how frail the Air is. Coming from BlackBerry product line I had hopes of a tougher build quality.
    To quote my father "everybody pays to Learn, stupid people pay more".

    I had that case and loved its build quality but the bluetooth keyboard would lose its connection and then my iPad couldn't find it. I'm using a logitech keyboard now that just works flawlessly.

    I have the new Apple leather case on my iPhone and when the iPad Air came out I got the Leather smart case and really like it. In my bag I put it in a padded sleve. I really like the feel of the leather case and it fits very well. I think the apple mobile units are to expensive not to protect in a case of some kind. Good luck
