Case for iPad?

Fellow Vergetarians,

I am looking to purchase a fourth generation iPad when I go to Hong Kong in late December. Of course I will want to protect my tablet from whatever poses a threat, so I went to my local Apple store and looked tried the first party cases. The Smart Cover seems like a nice accessory, but I feel like I need something to protect the back as it has been the scratch prone end of all the Apple devices I've owned in the past.

I've been looking online and found the various models of Dodo Case appealing. However, they are a bit pricey. Especially with shipping to Sweden. I therefore ask you for your recommendations.

Do you protect your iPad and if so, how?
