    Hypershop's line of Smart Cover-compatible shells let you coordinate your iPad 2 with your favorite outfit.

When Apple came out with its lightweight, seemingly magical Smart Cover, iPad users were impressed with the screen protection and magnetic Sleep/Wake feature, but underwhelmed with the lack of protection for the tablet’s aluminum underside. Well, Hypershop’s $35 HyperShield Snap-on Back Cover for iPad 2 has got your back—literally.

The HyperShield shell is a lightweight option for keeping your iPad 2 safe, while also expressing your personal style. The shell snaps on easily to the back of the iPad, and provides full protection of the corners, sides, and back while leaving access to all cameras, ports, and buttons. It is available in more colors than the rainbow—11 to be exact—from near-neon orange to a dark brown; there’s also an additional denim option for iPad users who want to match their electronics to their favorite pair of jeans.
