Hello,

I would like to get a cover/case which is like twelve south's surfacepad. I used to have this for my 4s, but it broke down very easily. It started to peel and was just not worth it.

With that in mind, I liked the style and how thin it was and some of the cheaper versions out there add some bulk. Are there any alternatives to the surfacepad for the iphone 5S? Or, has the surfacepad been improved since it's launch?

Thanks in advance!

The Surfacepad was improved, a lot easier to remove if you made a mistake. However, the glue (or sticky) is on the entire back versus Vaja version it's only on the middle of the back, which is easier for removal without touching the glue.

Hey thanks for this - it's good to know. Does that mean the leather won't start to split now?
