iPod Touch 5th generation leather case

All,

I've been searching for a good case for my ipt 5g since I picked it up at the Apple store over a week ago. Does anyone know if any really nice leather cases are available or coming soon for the ipt 5g? Even if you know of a company that makes a good case for previous models, that would be appreciated as well.

Thanks!

J

Take a look at Saddleback Leather. I'm a huge fan and own many of their products. You'll have to ask their customer service if they have something that fits the latest iPod touch model.

Definitely like both companies products. I guess now it's time to make a decision.

Check out Piel Frama. They are available through Cases.com. Fine Spanish leather. I have one for my iPod Touch 4 and will likely be getting one for my iPhone 5.

Just checked the iphone 5 cases out and they are pretty sweet! If the ipod touch 5g cases are as nice, I may have to consider one. Only thing, they are a bit pricey, but they definitely look expensive

I love the products from Joli Originals, I bought a leather sleeve from them for my Air. I was in contact with them today and they are in the process of creating a series for iPod Touch which should be up for order towards the end of next week, I'm planning to get one:

http://shop.jolioriginals.com

Their customer service is excellent, so if you drop them an email you should get a response pretty quickly.

Sleeves are nice and I do like the way the ones from Joli look, however, I am looking moreso for a portfolio type leather case. My 4g ipt case was perfect, but unfortunately I can no longer use it.

I ordered a case from Splash, and their orders were backed up due to the fact that they were coming from the Eastern U.S. where they were having hurricanes, then nor'easter storms. They were more than helpful when I emailed and asked about my order. I have family in New Jersey, so I know what a mess they were in out there. I know this might not be the reason for your delay, I guess I'd cut them some slack just in case...

WTF is vegan leather? From cows that died a natural death? From cows that willed their skin as organ donors? Cows are vegan by nature, so i suppose their leather would also be vegan.

I have used this one with my 4th generation and ordered the one for my new 5th generation and it arrived today. It is book format, not a vertical flip.

Been very happy with it.
