Currently our favorite of the bunch, Belkin's $30 lightweight back cover, the Snap Shield
, comes in pink, smoke, or clear. Our clear back has a slightly cloudy finish and a rubberized back texture, making it softer to hold and easier to grip. We've also noticed that it masks scuffs a little better than shinier all-clear covers. Corner-to-corner and edge-to-edge protection covers all exposed edges except for volume, headphone/power on, the 30-pin connector, and a cut-out rectangle for the speaker. The thin-profile back case adds little thickness to the iPad 2.
