I am looking for a thin (but durable) leather iphone case that has a flap that comes over the screen and velcros.

I have seen a few but I am not sure which might be a good one. Anyone here have one?

how thin is the SPG

zdblue11, how thin is that case? i have the seidio innocase ii and it's thin...nice. i'd love to know if the SPG is pockable...thin enough. there is no clip so it has to go in the pocket i guess.

The SGP illizion does not have the fancy but the grain and inside felt are exceptional.

yea the inside is like the cleaning cloth material soft
i also like the fact that there are no stichings on the case which may wore out with a long period of use.

just got mine

the SPG illuzion legend black...it's really nice. and super thin. i thought the flap would be annoying but it's light and it really doesn't bother me either flap open or folded back. it's really pocketable too. the innocase ii covered the chrome and had a nice feel, but the illuzion just feels more secure as closed it's completely covered.

overall i like. takes a little getting used to but super nice quality and thin as can be.

thanks!!

I really like the way the SPG looks. The only question I have about it is if the flap can unfold all the way back behind the case. The reason being if I'm using my iphone in car holder and I want to be able to see the screen for Navigon or streaming music, do I have to take the iphone out of the SPG case or just bend the front flap all the way behind it??

I'm very interested in this case also....I also am concerned with the management of the flap....anyone with one of these care to comment?

I have the sgp vintage case and i normally dont bend the flap all the way because i am careful with the case. But at times, I do bend the flap over 180 degrees and have no problem. I am just a bit worried if i do this too often, i might wore out the leather. It's a leather strap afterall.
