I really like the design of these two cases, and I understand both are well made by reputable companies. I am considering both and would like input from anyone who has used the Vaja, and since the SGP is not out yet, maybe those who have the ipod version of the same case? I like the customization available with the Vaja but I'm not sure I like the idea of a 2 part case. Plus it costs quite a bit more. Also, I worry a bit about the colors being true to what I see on my screen - I don't want to order one and then find the colors are significantly different. I have emailed them asking if they have a print brochure with accurate colors, and am waiting to hear back. My big reservations about the SGP are the fact that it is not stitched, just glued (lining might come loose), and the color of the leather. Not a fan of the initial cover, but would I be correct in saying that this case darkens quite a bit with use? I found one video review and it did look darker after use but that was not discussed. The reservation I have about both is my worry that the parts that snap on will get loose with time. Again, any input from those with Vaja cases or other SGP leather cases would be appreciated. Are there any other similar cases of these types I should look at in addition to these two?
