    Beside Vaja, who makes kickass leather cases?
    None of the one currently available over at Vaja for pre-order really catches my attention...

    I thought Vaja cases were expensive until I saw these haha. Some cases come in stingray/ostrich/alligator. Crazy expensive though. I ordered a premium leather one for the wife :)

    I had a Vaja embossed for my 6s+ that I loved. Hard to justify for 1 year of use but they do have sales if you sign up. I had a couple of unfortunate drop incidents. The phone was well protected, but the leather on the corner took a hit and split.

    I'm waiting to see more about the Hardgraft Fuzzy Snapon or any other experiences with their other snap on cases. Hoping it comes out soon as each month is one less use for the investment. Their zip case looks cool too, but it's only in tan.

    The Ullu cases look very nice. I love that color red - the Apple red is too bright for my tastes.

    Is this a safe brand?

    Check out Nomad, I didn't know about them until recently and when I found them I bought a case for the 7+. Once I get my phone I'll take pictures but the case looks and feels great. Best Buy is selling them right now.

    NODUS is the best IMO. I must say after having every iPhone this case is top 2 I have ever had.

    Great quality, comes with magnet and metal backplate built into the leather case. I have gotten tons of compliments on it.

    Get the yellow one, starts to age to a nice bourbon/scotch color after a couple weeks of use.

    Please do update us with the case! I'd like to get the wallet one but I'm worried it adds too much bulk

    If you want something a bit different from other people, try Etsy. There's lots of independent leather item makers doing iPhone 7/7+ cases and pouches.

    Just got the sleeve. It's nice and very high quality. It's a bit thicker than I'd like and pulling the phone in and out is pretty difficult. I'm sure that'll get easier over time as the leather breaks in. One thing I'm already not liking is when the phone is out of the sleeve my credit cards fall out so easily since there's nothing pushing against them. We'll see if I decide to keep it or not.
