Incipio NGP

NGP stands for Next Generation Polymer but this semi-rigid matte case has an odd feel that's a league away from the rubber texture of most other skins. It also comes with a screen protector sheet and air-bubble beating cloth. But the moulding could be neater, it's pricey and thin lip that folds over the edge of the iPad's front is a little too easy to dislodge.

Incipio Silicrylic

The silicrylic comprises a reasonably stiff silicone skin and a hard acrylic - hence the name - panel that clips on the back. Sure it makes for a cute two-tone case, but I'm not sure it really provides any extra protection. I was disappointed too by the poor alignment of gaps in the skin and the iPad's ports and buttons. Comes with a separate screen cover sheet.
