    Yeah. I'm not likin it either and I like worn, soft leather. Perhaps it's too thin and wrinkly.

    I agree it looks very thin... I think if I were to spend this much for a leather case, I would just add a few more dollars and get an Oberon. Those offer beauty and protection.

    From the pictures, the material is far from "thin" - this is not the type of smooth, sealed leather you find on jackets, belts and wallets. This leather is probably closer to the aniline leather you find on Oberon's covers (that's why it appears wrinkly - it's a lot tougher than it appears). It should easily outlast the lifespan of the device, especially if it comes from a place where leatherworking is a tradition. Their price point sounds about right for this kind of premiium handmade product.

    That said, the style of this cover isn't for everyone. I like leather goods, but the leather cord would be a bit too cumbersome, esp if using the device whilst commuting.

    If it can do what my yoobao is doing at the moment which is in it's writing wedge mode I would be interested. Having visited Spain many many times I know the quality of their leather work is second to none, I like the olde worlde look to it and it is quite a good price seeing it is made in Europe!

    I don't know if a leather craftsman hand-making a compendium from geunine full-grain leather would price himself that low. A premium product, especially the workmanship, is reflected in its pricing (and obviously not for everyone.)

    The picture in the article is not flattering, but the detail pictures posted in the later post look much better. I don't like the cord wrap. It's of a higher quality than my leather case I can tell just by looking at it, but mine was ten bucks.

    For ten bucks, though, is it genuine leather? I've realized that there are some vendors who will happily describe a product made from synthetc leather as "leather", in the hopes that the customer doesn't notice that the word "genuine" isn't there. (And the price is usually the giveaway.)

    I think this is a great and unique looking case. My only concern is how well it is able to act as a stand in both portrait and landscape. Does anyone have any info on that? I will probably get this case if it does a good enough job as a stand too.

    If it's a folio-style design, then it should be able to prop the device up easy in landscape mode; folio designs tend not to do too well in portrait mode.

    Thanks. I wrote to Vintcase and asked them as well. They basically gave me the same answer. I think I will get this case anyway. I love how unique looking it is.
