Hi can't remember when it was (maybe 3weeks ago) but someone posted a link to the site Gindart who sell all sorts of accessories and gadgets ect. I saw this cover for the iPad 2 and immediately ordered it and two screen protectors. The shipping was free and arrived just after 2 weeks of placing my order. All I can say is that I am extremely happy with it, it resembles the iPad 1 case that apple made but doesnt add any clunk or weight or nothing to the iPad 2. Here are some pics:

Just thought I'd share my experience incase anyone was wondering.

did you have to pay extra 30% for clothing duties (sometimes leather items are classified as clothing)

Didnt pay anything extra at all, and you dont pay for shipping. Also realised now, this case has the same feature as the Apple smart cover with the auto-lock when you close the cover and the wakes up when you open it again.

Thanks as I have been looking for something that has a good balance and you pointed me in the right direction including the original poster :).

That site has a cover that has the same front cover as the iPad 2 smart cover, but looks like the iPad 1 cover that Apple released. Might get me one of those!

Yeah thats new stock they got in after I had placed my order. But like I said I am extremely happy with this case and the build quality and everything else about it. And a bonus that it works with the auto-lock and auto-on function-never knew it work with it.
