    I personally use it 'naked' and just put it on my ACME sleeve when it's not in use. The cases/covers are a hindrance to its beauty

    I used to be OC too on small dings/dents/scratches.. but realized it's worth the risk using these devices naked. Magkaka-scratch/ding/dent naman sya eventually; why not do it in my own terms

    How much is the class A tough armor? And does the tempered glass put some significant weight in it?

    is the tough armor relatively slim and light? I like the design of the case but I worry that my ipad will become bulky

    all in all you'd end up with the same thickness of an iphone 5 in a tough armor.
    i'm still able to hold my mini with one hand stretched across the backside tho.. if that makes for any reference.

    fair enough there's the slight weight gain but i prefer the added volume to the smooth bare aluminium (fear of slippage)

    guys, would anyone know which brand/model of cases for the ipad mini with retina display, has all sides and back covered/protected and also has a front cover? was thinking of getting the momax smart case but it seems from the website that their retina version does not cover all sides anymore..
