Separated at birth, Case-Mate’s "Barely There" case is the Smart Cover’s long lost brother. The hard rubber tablet protector is perfectly compatible with any smart cover, giving you all around security. But you don’t have to own a that popular accessory to use this ultra modern, form fitting case. It works for anyone who needs some extra protection or grip on the back and edges of their iPad 2 or New iPad 3/4.

With the Case-Mate "Barely There" tablet shell, iPad 2 and New iPad 3/4 owners can cover the back of their tablet with an impact resistant, one-piece hard case coating. The back protector pairs excellently with the Apple Smart Cover, making it the perfect compatible companion. Case-Mate’s minimal design is in line with the sleek’n’smooth Apple style so you don’t have to worry about losing that modern look. When they say "barely there" they really mean it – you hardly notice that this is on when you see it lying on the table, but pick up and its smooth rubbery grip is instantly noticeable. You’ll have a choice between Clear or Black, and both are barely noticeable!

          The “Barely There” is a best case scenario for the Smart Cover owner seeking better all-around protection for their iPad. The two go together like long lost siblings.
