Fit and finish is very good - works well in combination with the SwitchEasy CoverBuddy
on December 31, 2013
I originally purchased an Apple Smart Case (not the Smart Cover) at the Apple store but didn't like it for a variety of reasons (see my review of the Smart Case). I returned the Smart Case and purchased the Smart Cover instead.
I did find a combination of the Apple Smart Cover with a third-party back cover that I am extremely pleased with and highly recommend. The first part is the SwitchEasy CoverBuddy for IPad Air, which protects the back of the iPad with a very slim, perfectly fitting cover. It feels very good to the touch and leaves the buttons uncovered for easy access and control. To this, I added the Apple Smart Cover which covers the front screen of the iPad very well and, unlike the Apple Smart Case, lays perfectly flat. I am very pleased with these two items, which provide scratch protection front and back in a perfectly matched combination that does not add any substantial weight or thickness to the slim iPad Air.
IF you are looking for full scratch protection coverage, the combination described above is, in my humble opinion, the one to beat. If you are looking for more substantial protection (i.e., for rough handling or drops), you should probably look at other options.
