    Just got the pinstripe one.

    Pros:

    - The fabric feel is great.

    - Fabric itself is quite nice.

    - That's it.

    Cons:

    - It is *huge* (overall case thickness) compared to every other case I've tried.

    - Because it's so thick, the Sleep button is nearly impossible to press.

    - Sharp edges at every seam, which totally ruins the feel of the fabric. It's soft against your palm, but then, ouch against your fingers.

    - Interior needs some soft material. It's slightly rubbery but some rubber strips for cushioning would have been welcome.

    - Did I mention how thick it is? Holy cow. The side buttons, headphone jack, Sleep button, they all feel like they're at the bottom of a well!

    Sadly, it feels completely rushed. It's *definitely* no SwitchEasy Neo, which remains the best case ever, next to the iSkin Revo2.

    No problems with mine...

    I've bought and used a few cases from Speck over the years, including their colored shells on my MB Pro...

    I just got their Fitted too in pinstripe and don't see the same fit/sharpness issues you mentioned.

    Agreed, it's not ultra-slim, but then again, it's got fabric over it and is why I bought it, so it's not gonna be the same thickness as a hard plastic of thin leather case.

    Anyway, I dig it. Mileage and style may vary I guess.
