    Don't like the leather, looks like a $99. jacket leather.

    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.)
