Im not sure what the this would cost you, but i love my smart cover with a shell on the back combination. it keeps it small and protects really well.

for me, the shell for the back was like $1 plus shipping from amazon, and the smart cover is either $30 or $70 depending on if you get leather or just the regular.

the shell is by HandHeldItems. it is a matt black with a rubbery texture which is great for grip.


hope this help you out.

I recommend the HARMONY iPad2 case by Evio. I've had mine for about 2 months now and very happy with it. Price is within your budget of £30 and they do ship international.

Here's a link to the HARMONY case:

Yeah, don't buy the "smart cover" from Apple. It's good as far as the design but it does not protect the back from scratches when you're not using it which is a huge downside...

the "smart covers" you get from apple i don't really like them very much. they don't cover the ipad as well as the others. its nice a slim but i'd prefer something like the Harmony case.

Well that's why I suggested the back case that is real cheap. The combo is great.

A smart cover in conjunction with a snap-shell case for the back works pretty well if you want to protect, but also minimize the weight and size increase of protective case. Unfortunately a lot of non-apple smart cover/back case combos don't have a magnet like the apple smart covers so that can be unfortunate if that is what you are expecting.
