The Skinomi ~ Full Body Protective Skin from Amazon finally reached my place yesterday, got it during $0.99 USD sale and plus the shipment cost me around $20 SGD in total.

The packaging and included accessory


That is quite alot of stuffs for $0.99 USD, accessories are as following:
1 x Front screen protector skin
1 x Back screen protector skin
1 x Home button protector skin
1 x Squeege
1 x Skinomi logo imprinted Microfiber cloths
1 x application solution (Which I forget to include in the picture, see below for the picture)

With no delay I proceed with the wet application after watching the tutorial online and left it overnight to cure, following is the result.

Front


Back


Corner


The skin has a glossy finish but neither it is slippery or fingerprint magnet, in the fact it resist fingerprint even more than the naked screen, it had a slight rubberized texture which add a very nice grip to your device. The cutouts are perfect and corners are well protected as shown in pics, the skin is hardly noticeably which give the IPad a naked look.

I would highly recommend it to anyone who want to enjoy the light weight of IPad Air but also want a good protection against scratches.

P.S: Installation is not that difficult if you follow the instruction video carefully, in the fact this is the first time I am doing a wet application and was quite amazed by the ease of it, just need a bit of patient will do...

Update:

This is the application solution bottle and the logo imprinted microfiber cloth, nice touch from Skinomi I must say, pardon me for the over exposed picture as I had to do so in order to capture the faintly imprint logo on the cloth... ~~"

I would recommend the one I am using - the Tucano Folio. Most lightweight case around, full back protection and because of the way it's built, has edge protection as well. Supports sleep/wake, and by far one of the cheaper folio cases in the market - $59 (and there's additional 5 or 10% off if you are a Challenger member).
I'm using Tucano also, the model with the edges that can be folded back for photo taking. Like it very much for it's sleek design and nice surface

How's the comparison between SGP Ultra Crystal VS Power Support Crystal VS Momax Glass Screen Protector? As in what are the pros and cons of each for those who have experienced them.

I love my moshi versa cover. Good build quality. Sleek. And can prop ipad up at multiple angles including vertically. Downside is probably the price and adds a little abit more weight than just a Smart Cover.

Yes. When you flip the cover to the back when holding the ipad in portrait position, the cover stays in position and doesn't fall off. The magnet is much stronger than apple smart case/cover

You need patience with wet-install but it's not difficult if you follow the instructions in the installation video. Some tips based on my experience.
1) use the solution liberally on the back screen protector when u peel it off. Make sure all areas of the back screen protector are slightly wet, like spreading butter on bread. This will make it easier to move around and adjust when u place it on the iPad.
2) wet your fingers with the solution before u peel off the protector, or you may get fingerprints on it.
3) don't worry about bubbles even after u have smoothed down the protector with a card/squeegee. They WILL disappear after 48 hours maximum, even if they look ugly at the time. That's what I mean by patience!
4) leave your iPad alone after installing the protector, at least for 8 hours, longer better. If you keep messing with it while the screen protector has not yet fully adhered to the surface, it will shift and there's nothing you can do about it later other than peel it off and start again. I did my installation at night and went to bed after that.
5) you will also need patience to press down the sides and corners because they have tendency to keep popping up during installation. But trust me, after 8 hours or so, they will stick. The photos I showed you guys was after 24 hours, and everything was fine.

I hope you ordered the matte finish, cos it feels really good and is like having a naked iPad. The original or glossy ones feel plasticky. Good luck.
Did you use a spray bottle or immerse the whole sheet into the bath? When you first place it on the ipad does it actually move around such that you can position and reposition it?
I put mine on, it was too sticky to move laterally, had to peel it off and reposition
