    The Sena Ultraslim line of sleeves is great. Stylish, sleek, minimalist; offer good value for what they are. Just what I need; well: almost.

    Two concerns might come up for customers.

    1 - I understand they are made of high quality leather and probably not cost much for what they are. However, considering you buy new cases for every generation of your devices, the resell value of your older case with the obsolete device is not so high. So, it's just an expensive hobby to equip all your latest iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with the respective matching Sena Ultraslim.

    2 - Not vegan

    So, is there an alternative to consider which offers a similar, minimalist style which fits your device well (thinking of a separate model for the 5c/5-5s to match the different depth of the respective devices)

    Vegan products also tend to be cheaper; for obvious reasons. What are some notable alternatives for me?

    Clarification/update: I am not looking for fake leather but something stylish non-leather material: textile, (wool) fleece, you name it.

    Further clarification: the Sena Ultraslim is a slide-in - slide-out sleeve; not a skin on your phone. I am looking for similar as well.

    But thanks, anyways @decx!

    There are a number of pouches you described listed on Esty. But they would be around the same price range as the Sena.

    There are a lot of wool or fabric pouches/sleeves on etsy.com. Good luck!

    Really nice brand, however:

    - I am not looking for a skin onto my phone but a sleeve; just like the Sena Ultraslim is one

    - It comes only in iPhone size, not in the size of the whole gadget family; preferably with matching design; iPhone, iPad, iTouch. That's the whole point of this thread!

    Since you know exactly what you are looking for, your best bet is to shop around youself on Etsy. Many of the artisans there make sleeves for an entire line of gadgets. Some will do custom work.

    Wool is not considered vegan.

    Yes, you are right.

    I mean, some nice material cheaper than leather; including textile and wool/fleece.

    ----------

    Thanks. So there seems to be not a developed market for this, such as the Sena Ultraslim range covers all gadget sizes.
