Design is smart, a couple drawbacks, good for traveling
This is my first Tech21 case. I had high hopes, and while the design is really very good (really), it is a little bulky for my tas This is my first Tech21 case. I had high hopes, and while the design is really very good (really), it is a little bulky for my taste, so minus 1 star for that. The other negative I have is the back, which is that shiny type of smooth rubbery plastic that shows fingerprints like mad. Ahh drives me a little nuts but I don't see the back much, so I'm telling myself it's OK.
Back to the design really quick, there are a couple of awesome features. There is a cutout along the right side so you can easily open your iPad smart cover. This can be tricky with other back covers I've used, so a very nifty and useful feature. Also the reason you buy this thing is the protection it offers, and the orange goo running around the edges should deliver that very well, even though the edges do bulge out a bit due to the additional cushion.
Lastly, it does add some weight. This is not a slim profile case, but will be great for traveling or taking the iPad out of the house. …

Fantastic alternative to the Apple Smart Case!
Picked this up at my local apple store b/c I wanted to see in person how great the air would actually look in these colored frames Picked this up at my local apple store b/c I wanted to see in person how great the air would actually look in these colored frames-they're really true to picture! I got the smokey gray color and I adore it with my black apple Smart Cover, they look like lost soul mates since they pair together so well for full protection! Chose this combo over the apple Smart Case b/c I wanted the option to remove the cover so I can avoid it flapping around when not needed or in the way of using my camera if it were folded to the back. Needed a case that gave me horizontal/vertical/typewriter angles, but I didn't want a bulky folio so I also got the Twelve South Compass 2 for ipad which looks real elegant like propped with my air in this frame. The grip while holding my air is MUCH improved even tho its back is very smooth; it's got that "I'm not sliding anywhere" feel. Finger prints do slightly show on the back but no biggie as mines in a dark color. No compromising the light weight of the air considering the protection promised. …

No, unfortunately the Tech21 Impact Mesh for iPad Air does not fit the iPad Air 2: although the ca No, unfortunately the Tech21 Impact Mesh for iPad Air does not fit the iPad Air 2: although the case itself fits well, the hole for the camera is misaligned so that the mesh overlays the actual camera of the iPad Air 2.
