For years, I’ve used Apple leather cases. With it being discontinued, I don’t know what to get for my new phone. Not looking for Speck, Otterbox, other hard shell types. I like leather &/or thin. I’m currently considering Nomad, Bullstrap, Apple Clear, Peak, Bellroy. Any suggestions?

@gdp How much bulkier (if at all) is it than the Apple one? That’s my biggest concern. And going without a case is also a contender at this point.

@gdp Good to know.

@Mtt wait, discontinued? I’ve never used any other case!

@Mtt I've always used Nomad cases. I think they're a pretty good option over the others, and it's a good team of people at Nomad.

@jthingelstad Yep, they have a new FineWoven version (it's more suede like) and are using that across all their former leather products (cases, bands, wallets).

@Mtt Contact @aa on Micro.Blog. He handmade my iPhone leather case to my requirements. Very happy with it still a couple of years on. Here's his site: https://amaiken.com

@Mtt also look at Spigen (thinfit might appeal?), and for leather Vaja cases are worth a look.

Thanks @miraz :-) @mtt my leather solution is more of a sleeve than a case, perfect if you intend to use your phone without a case but still want to have some level of protection when needed. If interested, amaiken.com/products/...

@aa That’s awesome! I want to be a sleeve person, but I know I’d leave it somewhere. I sent link to some friends though.

@DaveyCraney I grabbed a Nomad leather and one of the thinner MagSafe ones from Spigen. Trying both.

@Mtt Got my Peak Design case yesterday. I like it a lot. I'm still waiting for my iPhone. Construction / design wise, it's a great case. I like the texture of the fabric. I'm curious to see how the buttons will react in conjunction with the iPhone's.

@numericcitizen How does it compare in size to others? What did you use before?

@Mtt used Apple leather case.

@numericcitizen It is thicker than leather case?

@Mtt I would say comparable in size… Peak design might be a bit more chubby.
