    I'm thinking about getting a custom designed case for my ip4.

    Thinking either I will get a green or a blue striped case from Vaja.

    Anyone has bought and custom designed their Vaja case for ip4 ?

    I am currently in the process of reviewing one of their cases. They have some of the highest leather quality and cool cases I have tested.

    I say go for it if you're into luxurious leather. I recommend the Floater leather instead of the flat.

    Why would anyone want that design? It looks like a huge PITA to open and use your phone.

    I had one for an earlier model and found the lip that goes over the bottom of the phone that locks the flap in place wears out fairly quickly. It did not last a year before the leather was worn off that area and the stripes came off.

    SGP makes something similar. I wouldn't spend that much money on that particular model as the leather does tend to rub off where the leather clicks in.

    It is. Terrible design that they just keep pumping out since it used to sell to PDA users years ago.

    i picked up a very nice new, unwanted Vaja for my iphone 4 on ebay for around 45 bucks (£30). It's a royal blue leather with a white stripe down the middle and the interior is all white. It fits the phone very well indeed. I've added a white carbon fiber sticker, front & back (juststickitskins.com) & the phone still slides nicely into the case. I like the fact that you can cover the screen at all times, especially in your pockets. It folds back well so that you can use it with one hand for calls, internet use etc.
    Some folks may not like the fact that the case has a section cut out of the back, which completely exposes the camera at the top left. I'm pretty careful with my phones so not a big issue for me.
    As mentioned above, the white leather has become quite dirty where it clips over the top of the phone when you close the flap. It looks as if it's picked up grease from the top metal band of the phone itself.
    Really nice case; feels quality and well finished. I wouldn't pay the full price for a new one (YMMV), but for the price I got mine I'm very pleased

    I don't like neither of them. The Floater leather is Vaja's pebble textured leather. When you go to customize your case, it will say what type of leather it is.
