    I also have the carbon one, and love it! The leather gives it more of an elegant look...

    Your wife is awesome. I have the exact same setup. Though, I do wish I had a White Bumper instead. But black does look slick. :cool:

    And yes, only one leather skin comes per order. No need to worry, it's not that hard to apply.

    I have that leather back as well. Only thing that annoys me is that dust and crap tends to get onto the Apple part since it is exposed.

    Other than that I love the feel and look.

    Nice.

    For those with this setup, any issue with the bumper pulling up the sides of the skin? I've got a wrapsol orig/matte skin on the back right now. One side seems to get pulled up farily often (which is noticable because it's somewhat transparent).

    My plan, if possible, would be to apply the leather skin over top of the wrapsol.

    No issues with the skin + Bumper, but skin + Wrapsol + Bumper might be asking for trouble.

    Thanks. I just ordered one - been on the fence for a while.

    I'll report back when I get it. Out of curiocity, how long did it take you get it? I'm not sure where they are located. I'm in OH.

    I ordered mine on Amazon from TechNet seller. Got it in maybe 3 days, tops (don't remember exactly). Great seller, especially since my first SGP package didn't have any leather skin inside it! Just, the screen protector and squeegee/cloth.

    Does it scratch ur phone? I mean, can dust come between the shield and the phone? Is it removeable? How durable is this setup, does it protect drops`?

    Also have graphite back. Tip I picked up was to cut a small piece of an old clear screen protector and cover the apple on the back before appling the SGP skin.

    I added the retro logo to protect my silver apple. Also use the bumper or a leather holster when I go out. Looks really classy and feels great with the leather. Gonna buy another one for backup.

    Just out of interest, as i can't be sure looking at the photo, but does your leather go right upto the edge of the back, aka, can yo see any of the glass around the edge? I have the tear-drop style that the op posted, and i have about a 2mm gap all around mine that i can still see glass?

    Mine does not go right to the edge. There is a small border of glass left all the way around. Not enough that I consider it a problem though. I don't think either of ours are defective though -- just how they're made. Now that I've had it a while, I kinda like that little glass "border" -- it almost makes the leather look like it is inset (if that makes sense).

    I'm sporting the famous invisishield + bumper, any experiences with this? Any experiences with the leather skins you guys are using, does it protect somewhat from a small drop or anything?

    It's about 2x as thick as the SGP screen protectors, I don't know what you would expect from that in regards to protection. I don't have any hints of scratches or Knicks in the leather on mine

    I started out with the invisible shield and bumper and hated it, the front invisible shield lasted 10 mins before I removed it. I have one of the earlier leather backs that has individual cut outs for the flash and rear camera. I wasn't thrilled about the fit. Mine is centered top to bottom and left to right so the apple logo cutout is perfectly aligned, but both the camera and flash cut outs are about 3mm off. It's slightly grippy which is nice. I didn't bother protecting the apple logo tho, so far no damage.

    It leaves just enough glass exposes all teveay around that the bumper covers so no peeling issues. I purchased mine mid July and may just order another since it appears they fixes the camera cutout.
