Better than hard plastic alternatives,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: iTALKonline ProGel TRANSPARENT CLEAR Back Cover Tough TPU Case / Skin for Apple iPad 4 (4th Generation with Retina Display and Lightning Port) Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + 3G + 4G 16GB 32GB 64GB works with GENUINE Apple iPad Smart Cover
This is the third back case I've bought for this iPad, the other two were transparent plastic, they looked great and added almost no bulk to the machine....and they both cracked very quickly rendering them useless. This case is certainly the best alternative I've seen, nearly as slim and unobtrusive and almost transparent. Fine with Smart Cover.
