    I'm wondering what is the best slip case for the iPhone. The Sena Ultraslim looks amazing but is a bit expensive (around $40 with shipping). Is there anything similar to that but cheaper. Hows the incipio orion.

    Thanks

    The Sena UltraSlim is fantastic, mine arrived this morning and as soon as I took it out of the packaging I was taken aback at its quality; the leather is excellent and the cut is perfect; fits my iPhone like a glove. IMHO it's well worth the $40 I paid for it, that included shipping via FedEx to the UK, I only ordered it on Monday!

    if you can afford a 400 dollar cellphone...

    then u can afford the accessories....which is normally 5-10% of the original cost...

    someone correct me? u do want to protect ur investment right?

    We don't know the OP's circumstances but yes it should follow that if you can afford to purchase an iPhone then you should be able to afford the accessories that go with it; especially if they protect that investment as you say. I personally would like to see a Vaja pouch similar to the Sena UltraSlim but with the option to customize it as with other Vaja cases, I wouldn't mind paying the extra.

    I'm really liking the Sena SlimCase... I just might have to order one to replace the Qase slip case I already have.

    I have the Ultraslim pouch as well as Sena's Elga case/pouch. Both are nice. I use the Elga more so because it gives the phone a bit more padding as well as a nice clip. I posted pics in this thread: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=411074

    I received my Sena UltraSlim a couple days ago and I'm really impressed with it. Finally a leather case without a belt clip that easily fits into my pants pocket and doesn't add a lot of bulk to the phone. It also holds the phone pretty tightly, which is a added bonus over the iQase one I used before.

    Overall, well worth the price (especially if you use the 20% off coupon)! :)

    I think there was a spot at the bottom of the payment options page in the checkout system.

    Only saw a field for "Affiliate" or "Gift Certificate" -- that last one was on the credit-card page, which is that last page I saw because I didn't want to enter my CC info unless I could get the discount. :eek:

    I think the spot to enter the coupon code is after the cc page. I used paypal and the payal option was on the same page as the cc option. The spot for the coupon code came a page or two after that if I recall correctly.

    I sent my Sena UltraSlim back. It was ridiculously tight and scratched my phone a bit. It was able very difficult to insert and remove.

    I ordered an Incipio Orion to replace it.

    MyIncipio Orion arrived today. I like it way better than the Sena Ultra Slim. It slides in and out easily, has a pull tab in the back to make removal even easier, and is snug--I can hold it upside down and jiggle it and my phone doesn't slide out. Unlike the Sena, it's not so tight that I'm in danger of hurting myself or the phone while trying to insert or remove it.

    Shame on Sena for trying to sell their original iPhone products for the 3G.

    How do you like it? I'm considering going with a slip case kind of like this + some kind of protection film like the BodyGuardz and what have you. Basically a means of carrying the 3G around in my jeans pocket and the car without having to worry about it and without adding a crap ton of bulk.

    Do you like the inner material? I hate how you have to worry about cases sometimes doing more harm than good since just the material itself can scratch them up. But I'm with you on the design, it's loud but definitely unique... I'm fairly close to ordering one. I'd be interested in hearing your impressions on it.
