    Why pay $30 for that when you can get the same thing from someplace like SGP for less than $20 and you don't have to see the ugly company logo on the product...

    I got the SGP leather skinguard but I don't like it at all. That worst part is that it doesnt fit the back because its 2mm smaller around all sides.

    BINGO!

    Exactly why I was asking about the leatherskins in another thread.

    And I ain't buying one unless I get a 40-50% discount coupon for it.

    The SGP leather skin has been a dissapointment.

    difference though is that sgp is vinyl, Zagg is real leather

    i took the sgp one off even with a bumper there was still exposed glass

    that zagg one looks to be too big.

    im happy with my carbon fiber 3m one, fits 99% of the rear glass

    Why would sgp create the carbon fiber skin to fit to size but not the leather?

    It's about 2mm smaller than the back.

    I love the Zagg Leatherskin, both for my iPhone and iPad. It feels and fits great, I have the black one on my iPhone. However it does interfere with the flash when taking pictures, the cutout for the flash is very small. I guess it's possible I didn't get it applied perfectly, but the edges and around the camera all look as good as I could get them. I did contact Zagg and they say it is not an issue. They are sending me a replacement, and I will just cut the replacement out around the flash before installing it.

    I did buy an SGP Leather Skin Guard also. Compared to the Zagg, it is garbage. Thin, feels like plastic. Not sure about fit, I could tell immediately it was not what I wanted so I never installed it. It does have the larger cutout for the flash though. I also contacted SGP ahead if time because I didn't want the Apple logo cutout, they still sent one with the cutout anyway:confused:.

    No, I just use the Leathersin without a case or bumper. I like the feel of the phone without a case, I just like the Leatherskin to keep the back from getting scratched when I set it down. Plus it always slides around when I lay it down on the glass back. It slides off my coffee table without something between the glass and the table.

    Thanks, should have purchased one of those backs instead of the ill-fitting SGP cube... plus they offer an apple logo delete option.
