While this cover does fit with the Smart Cover, one thing I didn't think of is that the magnet that holds it to the back when open won't work. Meaning when the Smart Cover is folded back and you are using it, the Smart Cover just flops around, and doesn't stay connected to the back. Makes it a little strange.

Second issue is that it is so slippery. I think I have a better chance of dropping it now than I did without it on. I'm thinking about putting some tacky tape or stickers with some grip, but thought I wouldn't need to.

Third thing, and the deal breaker, it's almost impossible to use the volume buttons. I have to press way too hard to get the volume to change.

First off let me say that it is very difficult for me to take time to sit and write a review about a product, but after my what seem to be an endless search of buying and returning products that just didn’t work, or fit my needs I find it only fair that I should write a review once I finally found a product that works. I have tried more than 15 different iPad mini cases literally and this one is hands down the best in my opinion. Others I have tried issues were, cutouts were sharp and poked hand, slippery, Bulky, made buttons hard to reach or press, didn’t cove top and/or bottom of the device, etc.

Bottom-line: If you own an iPad mini and have the OEM smart cover this is the only case you should buy to protect the back of it…PERIOD!

Pros:
1. True rubberized soft feel making for a nice grip, not super grip but not slippery either
2. Super thin hardly adds any bulk at all
3. Works seamlessly with the OEM Apple smart covers
4. Covers entire back of the device almost all buttons and outlets
5. Cutouts for rotate switch, cable and headphone jack are perfect
6. Even includes plugs so you can cover the USB and headphone jacks
7. Can match whatever color smart cover you have
8. Makes mini very comfortable to hold for hours
Cons:
1. Could be a little more grippier
2. That I didn’t find it sooner

Great product. Apple's Smart Cover actually fits and works better when used with this back cover. This combined with the Smart Cover offer full protection in a VERY slim package.

This case fits my iPad mini very well.
However, after one month use, I can see 4 cracks in all corners.
I never tried to take it off since I put my iPad mini in.
This product is not durable at all.
I have tried to contact the vendor, but no response at all.

Love it. Snaps on, protects my ipad mini but keeps the sleek design intact. Only adjustment is to amount of pressure to use volume tabs on side.

I ordered two different cases before trying this product, and wasn't satisfied with either. The switcheasy is exactly what I wanted. It provides great protection while still staying lightweight and thin. I highly recommend this iPad mini case!
