Ordered two Sena cases yesterday for me and my wife. Black croc for me and Pink for her. I have tried just about EVERY single case they sell at the apple store and AT&T and returned them all but the GRIFFIN ELAN holster case. SInce these SENA cases were similar with a rotatable clip I figured I would give them a shot.

So far, out of the 10 cases I have tried, this is my favorite. Holds the phone snugly but not too tight and its padded with a nice cushy velvet lining. The Griffin is sort of cheap looking and feeling in comparison so that will go back today.

Anyway, great cases and here are a few pics...

BTW, YES, I ordered yesterday at 3pm and received today!

Looks well made. How would describe the added bulk? I currently have the Belkin Slim leather case...if you have seen/tried the Belkin, can you make any comparisons? Thanks!

I keep thinking about the Sena UltraSlim pouch, but one of the photos in the slide show on their site makes it totally craptastic.

How easy is it to get the phone out of the Sena case when it's ringing? There doesn't seem like much of the phone exposed to grab a hold of.

Comparisons

Taking the phone out of the Sena case is easier than the griffin and belkin holster cases but not by much. I just grab the top edges of the phone and it glides out. The padding on the inside of the Sena is much nicer than the other two options. Soft, cushy velvet.

It is a little more bulky compared to the belkin and griffin, but feels very nice. Doesn't bother me as its hooked on my belt or pants pocket. It's funny because i was searching high and low for a case I liked and as I said, I tried EVERYTHING available at the apple store and AT&T (almost kept the case mate but the top started to bow outwards and it looked bad.) and when I saw these Sena cases 2 weeks ago I though they were ugly. Now that I have mine, I love them.

What got me to buy them is a youtube review I saw on the case. Just put my wife's Incase pink leather case on craigslist for $10 as she likes the pink Sena better.

The leather on the Sena cases is top notch as is the construction. I was between the Orbino, Vaja and Sena. The Orbino looks nice but $100 and probably a few weeks wait. The Vaja looks super sweet but doesn't really protect the phone, plus 25 days to make it. I canceled my order for the Vaja's after realizing there really was no protection for the main part of the phone.

As for the Sena slim pouch, that one didn't really do it for me in the pics they have up. Maybe good for a pocket case though.

It's an old post, but very important. Some of us want to know how these old cases have held up over the years. Someone posted that their new 2011 Sena case scratched the silver band on their 4S. Has your Sena case give much (stretched out) or is it a snug fit?
My Sena case really fits nicely after all this time. and the cut is perfect still. i'll have to take a photo of it when I get home later. I don't use the case daily. its something I change out every other week or so. I think that's why its held up so long.
