    Default iPhone Leather Case - Saddle Brown

    Anyone owning one of these? How do they age? How is the patina? Would you recommend it above the silicone version?

    Our US friend has one. Looks cool.

    Left it outside the house on table after too much wine and weed...overnight rain.

    Took off phone next morning, dried it and still looks as the day before

    I looked at them too, but far to expensive for me.

    Any recommendations? There are ‘felt’ on the inside preventing grinding effect on the Aluminium.

    UAG is a bit too bulky.

    I had one for my IPhone 8. Best cover I had very durable. Worth every cent.

    For protection I like UAG - that is as far upmarket as my pocket allows!

    I have the blue apple leather one.

    They are expensive but worth it.

    Very good quality; Ages and lasts very long.

    Sorry for only commenting now, I had one on my iPhone 6 back then. My dad has since taken over the phone and is still using the leather case. It aged very well, bit darker in areas where it is touched the most.

    I also had the Apple silicone cover on my iPhone 7, that did not age well. It was quite slippery and the matt black finish rubbed off, therefor it started showing as shiny.

    Thanks for the feedback. I think I will go for the leather.
