Oh, and one more thing - I worried about heat problems with the colcasack - well - I thought to myself , winters coming and theres a tendency iPhones doesnt do well in the cold. So , hey , Colcasack is perfect.

Now the only thing Iam worried about is that the inner textures will scratch the phone but Ill have a screenprotector on too , hopefully.

Yep, if no top cover is a deal breaker, this is not the sleeve for you. But otherwise, I find it comparable to any of the many sleeves I have tried before. I will say that it's a tight fit out of the box, but after a couple days, it's been fine. Curious as to the complaints you've heard?

It was mainly that it was too fit but also the quality - it wears out after plenty of use. I dont know if the second complaint is true at all..

Unknown at this time. The first orders won't ship until 2-3 weeks from now. Dodocase sent out a message to all of use who have ordered today and let us know how far along in the process they are. Everything they do is handmade, so QC is at it's best there. Given their reputation, I would assume they won't make it so easy for things to fall out, but time will tell!

I began with an Elega, but found that it's somewhat subject to scuffs.

The Sena Ultraslim is thinner, has a very luxurious texture, is extremely scuff resistant, soft and supple.

The Sena Ultraslim scratched both sides of my 4S due to the inner seams rubbing the band every time i took it out/put it in.

You obviously received a defective case. I'm sure Sena would have assisted you in resolving the problem. My company buys them in large quantities and none of us have had an issue.

The insides of the two I have are soft and compliant. Nothing but leather and high quality stitching. There's no way for the ones I have to cause any marks at all.

I've been using the oldest one (iPhone 4) since that phone was released.

For traveling

I use this Element accessory case for my iPhone 4 while traveling, then take it out when I get there. Anyone see anything like this yet for the 5? It is big enough to have a slim case on the iPhone too.

Maybe scratched was the wrong word. The raw edges of the leather seam 'polished' the bands of my iPhone 4S. It probably wouldn't have happened if the case wasn't so tight.

Edit: Looked it up ! 10 Dollars!! wow!

Have you tried fitting your iPhone 5 in it? It might just fit well !

I ordered the waterfield designs suede sleeve sized for bumper with outside pocket. If nothing else, it will hold my headphones in my purse, but protect my phone as well. I had one for another device and like its flexibility. I do plan to do a bumper which should fit in this.

Also, the price is right and might ship tomorrow.

Well, when my phone actually gets here I might try it! This is thin enough to fit into a pocket. Zipper is OK, but a little stiff. But for $9 it's a steal. I will get one for sure when the revise for the 5.

Does anyone know where I could get a case like this, but cheaper? I've had a look on ebay but couldn't see anything similar.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gear-iPhone-...8757277&sr=1-1

Its like a bumper case, but with an added clear plastic back.

Cheers!

What do you mean by stiff? Isnt it soft?

Hows the inner lining btw - anything that could cause scratches to the phone itself?

Hi! The lining is a soft fabric. No scratches to date. The zipper is nylon, but I just meant it is somewhat hard to pull shut. Hopefully it will still lats, but for $10 not that big a deal. I like this for total dust protection!

Regarding the Zipper Case guys!


Hi,

Our current zipper case will not fit the new iPhone 5 since the new phone is longer. At this time I do not have any information if we will be selling them for the new iPhone 5. Please keep in touch with the latest news from Element Case on Facebook, Twitter and our website (www.elementcase.com). Thank you and have a good day!

Best,

Cristina Rodriguez
