    I am looking for a case that doesn't add too much bulk to the tablet, yet protects it. Also, I want it to have a screen protector built-in, so it covers 100% of the device. I don't care about a stand feature or auto-wake, as long as it protects the Nexus 7 from damage and still makes it fit into a parka pocket.

    So far there's only those "book-style" cases or the official one, which I read today doesn't even fit perfectly! :o That one was my favorite.

    There are a large number of cases available (~ 15,000) in a wide range of prices -- let me help:

    Amazon.com: nexus 7 case: Electronics

    I have the Blurex case which is actually very nice and compact.

    Ditto what "bigtroutz" said.

    If you want one that will fit in a pocket, I would go with the Speck FitFolio.

    (FULL DISCLOSURE: Speck Products provided me a FitFolio for the purpose of writing a review.)

    I bought the Speck Fitfolio case for my husband's Nexus 7 Xmas present, am quite pleased with the look and feel. Hoping he will like it.

    That one looks pretty nice But does it actually protect the screen? Even when it's open?

    But right now I'm short on money, so a case has to wait!

    Get the FitFolio and then add BodyGuardz or something like that.

    I got this Amazon.com: Poetic REVOLUTION Case for the Google Nexus 7 Android Tablet by Asus Black: Computers & Accessories

    It is like an otterbox of some sort, comes with a "screen protector". in quotation marks because its not something you stick but already built in to the case.

    I have the a poetic Slimline and so far, I love it. The case johnj mentioned looks great and I'm thinking about picking one up. Poetic is a great company also. Great customer service.

    Just to add a mini review. If you're looking for protection this is probably 1 of the best cases around. With the 2 weeks I've been using it, there only function that is not possible with this case is NFC.

    Bought this case because I let my 2 year old use the nexus, and it has held up pretty well with the throwing and dropping of a toddler.

    I have both the Asus stock case and a portenzo book case. Both fit perfectly

    I am borrowing this thread with the same question but I want the screen cover to be magnetically detachable like apple smart cover. It can't be so difficult to make if you put magnets on the hard cover and on the screen cover.

    +1 for Poetic Slimline:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B009...cUvbUpU2521821

    Slim fitting (even slides in to a neoprene pouch made for Nexus 7 I bought with the Poetic case on), magnetic closure, auto sleep/wake, great protection, bargain price, quality product. Nuff said really.

    Otterbox do one I have an Otterbox for my iPhone and its very good. It has in both cases got the integral screen protector you are looking for. I have just ordered one for my nexus 7 from Amazon UK but they are out of stock so on back order.Not cheap 44 plus P&P but could save hassle

    I really like my gumdrop case. It's like an otterbox for the nexus 7, and it doesn't make it too much bigger.

    As far as the cases with integrated screen protector is concerned I have just bought a Poetic Revolution simply because my preferred case would be the Otterbox but here in the UK Amazon quote 2 months delivery. Oh to live in the bloody UK. I actually ordered the Otterbox as the original lead time was 2-5 weeks the next day the time increased so I cancelled. The Poetic is OK ish but the design is flawed the silicon surround will not sit flush around the camera and is very annoying.I am technically capable and have tried every which way to get to to work how its supposed to no avail. Finally a little silicon sealant along where the cover is supposed to fit and left overnight sorts it. I know if I remove the N7 I will have to re do it but that wont be till I can get my hands on an Otterbox. Poetic need to address this problem quickly.

    They just sent out a replacement top cover for those who purchased one. They received a lot of complaints about their cover being blurry and they just changed it and sent out a replacement to ALL who purchased it.

    Personally the original front protector didn't bother me at all. But getting the placement in the mail makes me a happy costumer. The new cover is a lot clearer than then original.

    This has been my favorite case I have. I have 5 cases from folio to snap-on but with a screen protector applied it has kept my Nexus7 scratch and ding free.
