My Hard Graft All in One Case and Stand for 6 Plus arrived today and it exceeds expectations. I realize this case isn't for everyone, and some people don't understand this type of case for an iPhone. But for me personally it the perfect case. The quality is outstanding...one of the best quality cases I have ever purchased. The softness of the leather can only be appreciated in person, very soft to the touch and just exudes quality.
It has a small pocket under the flap that holds a few credit cards and cash, and also serves as a stand either vertically or horizontally.

If you like this type of case, or need a wallet/case...this is a wonderful choice. It costs significantly more than other options, but you truly get what you pay for with Hard Graf.

What's under the underside disk of the snap closure, to protect the phone when it's being closed or when then wallet is in use?

Also, the snap might require pressure to close, so there's that, coming down in two spots on the phone. No?

The leather is thick and the interior is felt lined. I don't think there is anything to worry about with the snaps, I have no concerns.

Very nice. I've been looking at one of these for my 6 or an Orbino case.
Do headphones work ok with it?

The price is insane

I bought something off etsy similar to this for $37 including shipping... from Poland. No I haven't gotten yet so can't vouch for it.

I wish Hard Graft would make a case that attaches /snaps on the iPhone like the Vaja ones do… would definitely buy it. Their stuff is great, just don't personally care for the bag / pouch style.

I think there is a big untapped market for this style of case when apple pay gets going. Most will still need some card storage at all times - but you don't want those cards attached when you actually have to make a payment (some times you will have to physically hand it to a clerk). I think people will start ditching their wallet/card cases for this style.

FWIW I looked long and hard on etsy and was able to find 1 similar style (full leather, felt, enclosed card holder). I intend for mine to be a wallet replacement.

How snug is the fit on these? Also eyeing the wild/field case. I have a ps air jacket I would like to keep on my 6, but that's a lot of money to shell out for something I'm not sure will work out.

Which one did you order?

Well guys, you get what you pay for. I have several Etsy cases and other very similar leather/felt cases...and none come close to the quality of the Hard Graft. You may be perfectly happy with a cheaper case, but if you appreciate a finely crafted case with the best leather available, this case can't be beat.

Does it have a belt loop?

Yep! Totally agree.

When you sell something 3-5 times the price of everything else on the market...

You expect to not to have to replace it in 1-2 years.

Phone cases inherently will be replaced every 1-2 years IMO

As long as the functionality is reasonably similar it is very hard for me to justify paying that difference in price for just a quality upgrade.

No belt loop...that would have been a nice addition.

Its a perfect fit. Its designed specifically for the 6 and 6 Plus.

As I said, the case isn't for everyone, only those that appreciate quality. If function is your only concern, this is not your case.

Great case had one for my I5. I also have a wallet that's about 3 years old and boy does this leather age well!

The quality of their leather is what makes the case...very soft, hard to describe without holding one.

The air jacket is very slim, but you've got me thinking it probably won't fit. I guess I'll hold off on the chance that maybe someone will have that combo down the line and could comment on it. Thanks

It might fit, as Ive used the case for past week its loosened up a bit. But its made to fit the 6+ naked...I would email Hard Graft and ask them.

Bought this case after reading this post. Pouch cases aren't for everyone, but if you like them, this case is perfect. This is the best and most useful case I have ever purchased for a phone. Needless to say, I love it. The ability to use as a stand on my desk is so nice. I also sit up in bed a lot at night and watch HBO or Showtime programs and using this case to hold the phone in landscape is perfect. The case is slim and easily fits in my pocket. My search is over.
