    I have the Sena leatherskin. Use the iSkin Solo now, but the case is solid.

    Sena cases has been around for quite awhile and they're local to me. I used to use their cases alot for past phones; Treos, BlackBerry, etc. but haven't used one for the iPhone. I've found their cases to be well made and very nice.

    Great quality, somewhat pricey though. I've had the slim pouch and now the one with the strap that pulls it out of the pouch. Beautiful leather on both.

    My wife bought the same model Sena you have linked first (wallet style) in your post and this one (Piel Frama) and sent the Sena Wallet back because the Piel Frama was made better, fit better and just overall nicer for just a few dollars more. She opted for the "flip style" wallet but Piel Frama makes a similar style to the one in your first post.

    Hope this helps...

    The beltclip knob can be completely removed (Piel Frama even includes the tool) and they give you a little color matching plug to replace the knob and is completely flat with the back of the case.

    Sena cases are nice!

    For the past 6 years, I have had many Sena cases (mostly for pdas). All have been excellent.

    At present, I have the Wallet skin case. It's great because I can carry my ID and credit cards with my iPhone. The best part, when a call comes in, I don't have to open the case; I just pick it up and talk.

    With the wallet case you mention, you have to pretty much take it out of the case, or at least, undo the flap. For a phone, that's a hassle.

    However, if that's the case you desire, I bet that you will be pleased with the quality and fit of the case.

    the wallet skin is the one that has the wallet in the back of the phone right? like the front screen of the phone is totally exposed

    Yes. Even though the front is exposed, I still feel comfortable with it. If I used the belt clip, I may not feel so secure. In want to be able to use my phone like a phone i.e, answer it when it rings as opposed to opening a case to get at it. Also, I have the flipper case; sometimes, I switch. It's pretty easy to flip down the cover. Unfortunately, it's got a magnetic closure and I don't keep either credit cards or my license in the pocket.

    if you remove the beltclip does anything slick out the back? would you mind posting some pictures of your case with some cards in the slots + phone in the case i would like to see how it looks when its stuffed and without a beltclip

    Pictures

    Here's some pics (taken with my 1st gen iPhone). It's not as thick as it looks. As far as the clip, I never attached the included belt clip. One thing, to use the camera, you need to unhook the wallet flap.
