The case is made of two pieces of leather stitched together. The seams run down the length of the case, on each side. What you may notice after a while is that the seams can put some slight wear marks down the side of the iPhone as the phone is constantly slid in and out of the case. These aren't scratches. The material on the seams where it contacts the phone isn't as soft as the rest of the case, so after time you will start to see slight marks. This doesn't put me off the case at all, just something I felt I should mention.
Its a nice snug fit, which means the iPhone won't fall out of the pouch if its turned upside down. Great price too (£18.25 for the Sena Ultraslim is an absolute bargain considering the quality of the materials and the workmanship).
I found the easiest way to get the iPhone out of the pouch is to push up in the very bottom edge with your thumb. Then once the iPhone is pushed out at the top enough to get hold of, just pull it out. If you are struggling to get the iPhone in the pouch (when its new). Place both your middle fingers of both of your hands into the pouch, then pull your fingers apart against the sides of the pouch to stretch the leather.
If I had to be really picky. I would say the only criticism I have of the pouch is that it doesn't have the usual leather smell that a lot of leather products have. The Sena Ultraslim has more of a chemically smell. Perhaps this is a smell leftover from the tanning process.
The Sena Ultraslim would not probably give much protection if the iPhone were dropped. If you want more protection there are rubber/plastic surrounds/cases that you can buy for this purpose. But personally I think they look awful. I much prefer to have my iPhone naked when I'm using it, and when I've finished I can put it back in this pouch.
I suppose only time will tell how the Sena Ultraslim will wear. But I've read reports on forums that they can still look like new after almost 2 years.
Would highly rreccomend this, (when I lost my first one I ordered a second one immediately, didn't even think about other cases).
But do bear in mind when you first get it, it will be a very tight fit, this resolves itself after a few days as the leather becomes more supple, and is a good thing.
Only downside (and its a small one), is that one edge of the iPhone remains exposed as this cover is a pouch not an all encompassing bulky case.

As others have noted a tight fit at first but after a few uses fits snuggly. A very well made case that does not increase bulk of phone in the pocket too much.Published 13 months ago by Christopher N Roberts
