    No I haven't but that one looks nice too.

    Anyone ever see a "Wrapper" case in person?

    This comes in black as well, but I couldn't find a decent photo of that.

    I was thinking about getting a sleeve as well. I have mine in one of those Oakley sunglasses bags right now. I just ordered a case (SwitchEasy Capsule Rebel) but I would really prefer to keep it naked. It also depends on how smudgy the back gets too. It doesn't seem too bad so far.

    I really like sleeves. I'm still a bit uneasy when i take it out. I just can't bring myself to get a case that stays on. I love the look of sleeve cases. There are some really nice designs out there for these. I have one on the way but just looked at Fabrix cases and now want one of those too! Oriental Paisely. Totally different than the one i got though!!:D

    :D

    Thanks for all the great suggestions of similar sleeves. I still think I like the look of the "Wrapper" best. I guess I'll have to take the plunge and see if it's as good as it looks!

    well my 'wrapper' arrived today.

    initial impressions very favourable

    nicely made, i got the Alacantra one and the material is really nice and smart

    excellent fit

    one stupid thing i did was forget to order the one with the band outside for yoru earphones, but i think i'm too lazy to return it.

    I tend to chuck my phone in the rucksack when i head off somewhere and I think this will do an excellent job of protecting it from scratches

    hmmm, don't have a camera at home - could take some at work later in the week if you really want to see. But the photos on the site are very true to how it is.

    I'm pretty pleased with it. Only possible draw back is that if you are someone who takes you eyephone out every 5 mins then you'll get sick of taking out the wrapper each time

    OK, don't worry if it's too much trouble and there is no real difference to the website pics.

    Did you get the dark grey?

    How long was shipping to London?

    Does it come out of the case fairly easily, or do your comments suggest that it clings to the pouch in some way?

    Sorry for all the questions, but I do like the look of it.

    ordered it on 30 July and arrived today.

    I got the black. No I wouldn't say it clings, just nice and snug. Really the best thing about it is the Alacantra stuff material, looks smart and feels good.

    I'm tempted to get one for my MBP.

    In some ways its a lot of money for what it is, but it is well made and they've gotta make a living.

    But like I said, I think it all depends on how you use your phone. With me it tends to get thrown in a bag and then once I'm at work its out on my desk. A wrapper fits with that sort of useage.

    Also bear in mind the only protection this will give is against scratches - won't save it from being dropped from the 3rd floor onto the concrete....

    ordered a "wrapper" ... with the pocket and band. Hopefully it comes soon! I'll post up and new info / review if I find anything different. Looks like a great product.

    anyone in the US order one and get it yet?

    I ordered on 7/25 and have still not received mine. Google checkout was the only way to pay and I got notice from them about 5 days after the order that it had shipped, though 3 weeks later and I still havent seen it.

    Customer service seems non existent and there was no indication of a tracking number. I was a little leary ordering, but knowing others have gotten theirs makes me feel a little better. Should I be concerned?
