I just upgraded to the iPhone 6S from the 5. I have several sleeves for the 5 and the new sleeve for the 6 arrived today.. It's perfect. Not having the pigskin lining helps with bulk and the size is perfect to allow phone protection without adding significant weight. I get lots of comments about the sleeves. I love the new phone and, again, I'm sure the sleeve will outlast the phone.
Just received my iPhone 6 plus sleeve moments ago. I absolutely love it. Yes there are many people on these reviews stating they would rather have the pig skin lining. Yes that would be a plus and I would like it even more but when it comes down to the product at hand, its another great product from SBL. The lining that it has on the sleeve now is not so bad, its soft on the phone and will not scratch the screen. I would highly recommend this to anyone in need of a phone sleeve. As always with SBL products its going to take some time breaking it in and getting the phone to slide in and out. But that will come with time. Great product Im giving it 5 stars but would like to see the pig skin lining return to your products.
Ordered and received my new iPhone 6 Plus Tobacco Leather sleeve and Wow' with the craftsmanship, service and detail. I love it guys, and thanks for toughening up my city-slicker phone and making it a ranch hand! You earned my loyalty. Hope you all enjoy a Bull Year in the business and thanks for sharing your love with world.
It burned my butt when Samsung took away the removable battery and expandable storage to put a fancy metal and glass back on the Note 5, and then I had to get a case to cover up the fanciness. Not so fast, my friend! Saddleback Leather to the rescue! This case rocks, and I won't have to buy another one with the next phone upgrade!
Works great for my LG V10. Would be perfect if it was 3/16 of an inch taller.
Yes the SIII is an old phone, but it still works and I was in need of a new case. I opted for the iPhone 6 case knowing that my phone was significantly larger. And it was. It was super tight to get in and almost impossible to remove, at first, but after regular use and a few rounds of stretching it now fits like a perfect glove. I used multiple pieces of cardboard to stretch. I used the back of a legal note pad cut in phone-width strips and put as many in the case as I could fit. I did this a few times while leaving it overnight and it worked perfectly. As long as your phone is not wider than the stitching, or substantially thicker than the intended phone, I would definitely recommend this case as a potential option. I gave it a 4 because of the lack of lining. I think the case is fine as is, but my friend had one for his iPhone 5 and I was really impressed with the extra layer of protection. This case is really good, but it definitely lacks a little without the pigskin.
As the title says, I bought the case for my Samsung Galaxy note 5. It is a perfect fit and I do not miss the pig skin lining. The fit was a little snug at first but I just used my index finger through the hole in the bottom to push the phone out half way. This gave me room to grab the phone below the buttons and camera.
I've been a long time Otterbox user but with the size of the new Phablets the Otterbox makes them to large. I added a tempered glass screen protector and some silicone port plugs. I now feel my phone is fully protected.
I was worried about buying this because of some of the reviews. I owned the iPhone 5 sleeve and absolutely loved it. While I do miss the pig skin interior, this sleeve is definitely worth it. I feel confident that if I drop my iPhone while in this sleeve, I wouldn't be worried about a cracked screen. Plus it's sexy as hell!
I just received my iPhone 6 Plus case hoping it would fit my Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and I couldn't be happier! It fits the Note 5 like a glove, which I expected since the two phones are nearly identical in size. The tobacco leather is awesome like all the other Saddleback products I've ordered. And to top it off, I've always carried my phone in an OtterBox, which has cost me $50-$60 bucks a pop, and every time I upgrade my phone, I've got to shell out another wad of cash for a case. I wanted to start enjoying my phone without the big clunky box on it, but I also don't want to shatter it when I drop the phone unprotected. At half the price, for a case that will only get better with age, and will probably fit at least the next few phone upgrades I make, the decision is a no-brainer. Great case for a great phone!
After looking around for a leather iPhone sleeve of decent quality, I was pretty disappointed with most of what's on the market. Most options are either cheaply made, extremely expensive, or both. I eventually purchased this one from Saddleback despite some of the bad reviews here and I'm glad I did. The leather is thick enough without being bulky and it will definitely protect against damage resulting from impacts, scrapes, minor drops, etc. The stitching is also very well done and seems like it's made to last. My 6s Plus fits perfectly, even with the Tozo ultra-thin snap-on case I'm using.
I'd characterize this case as being somewhere between classy and rugged. It's nice. I think if Indiana Jones were going to bring his iPhone to a cocktail party, this is the case he'd use.
That said, this case isn't perfect. The cut-out at the bottom is too shallow for insertion of the phone in a top-down position without partial obstruction of the light sensor, which makes the hands-free "Hey, Siri" feature sort of spotty when the screen is off. It's basically fine when the phone is inserted bottom-first, but then there's no access to the headphone jack and the speaker grille is partially covered, muffling the speaker somewhat. Also, my sleeve arrived with a small line (maybe 6 or 7mm) where there is no finish, exposing the lighter leather underneath—not a big deal, but I'd rather put my own marks on it as time goes on, rather than having some right out of the packaging. Further, the cuts at the opening to this sleeve seem to have been done at a slight angle which makes them sort of asymmetrical, a problem that my Saddleback card sleeve—which is basically a scaled-down version of the same sleeve—doesn't have. Most of this is just nitpicking, but I figured I'd mention it for the sake of other nitpickers.
Also, for what it's worth, I don't think the lack of a pigskin lining (which I read about in other comments) is particularly detrimental, and I'm still satisfied with this case regardless. Maybe I'm just a lowly plebeian, though.
Overall, 4.5/5. Definitely the best overall option that I've come across. I bought and returned cases made by other companies that cost twice as much and weren't half as good.
I have to admit that I'm relatively new to saddleback, this was only my third purchase (fourth if you count a christmas gift I bought for someone) and I'm continually impressed at the awesome quality. I wouldn't want to drop my phone from any great height, but I would cringe at the idea of that regardless of the case it is in. The hole at the bottom is exactly the right size, it is big enough that the speakers and microphone are unobstructed, but not so big that it leaves the phone vulnerable. It's nice that I can just plug the phone in and use the "Hey Siri" feature while driving without having to even take it out of the case. It also is snug enough after breaking in that there's no chance of the phone falling out, but not so snug it is hard to slide the phone out. I got the tobacco and it's already developing a hint of a patina and the scratches make it look better all the time. I actually put a really good scratch right down the middle of the front of the case while putting my phone in a zippered pocket. I didn't realize it at the time but my wife said to me that night "Do you see what you've done to this?!" She was genuinely concerned and thought I had really messed up my beautiful sleeve. I was concerned too for a moment, but I rubbed it for less than 30 seconds and the scratch faded in with most of the rest of them. That was very cool. It looks so good that I usually leave it sitting out on my desk in front of me during class. If there is anything to complain about it is the fact that this case does make the already not-so-pocket-friendly iPhone 6 even less pocket friendly. I have to take it out to bend over and tie my shoes or it digs in to my gut. In all fairness, the phone already did that a bit before I had the sleeve. Plus, it's a case, it's not exactly going to shrink the phone now is it? I would definitely recommend, and would buy again.
I recently purchased the iPhone 6 Plus case to try with my Samsung Galaxy Note 4. I knew that it would be a little tight at first but after a couple days of breaking in the lather I already can see improvements. It fits the Galaxy Note 4 almost perfectly. So, this case is not only for the iPhone, it will fit Galaxy Note 4 & Galaxy S6/S5 with ease.
So dont be afraid to order this case! I would have liked to see some kind of sheep skin or other smooth material in this inside but it is still nice the way it is now, bare leather. It does not have any issues with scratching the phone, just a little snugger getting in and out of the case. So far so good with this case and I can see it working out nicely.
First off, I do not own this product yet. What I do have is the SBL phone case for the 5S, which I think is a perfect case in the finest SBL tradition.
My 5S case is unlined and inserting my finger in it reveals to me a soft, suede-like surface that has never scratched my phone for almost two years now and I use my phone a LOT. At first I was worried the case my loosen to the point my phone will slip out unintentionally by gravity. My phone case has held up well till this day.
I can imagine pigskin lining is unnecessary for this type of product. Better use the pigskin supply on other SBL products. Loved the generous pigskin lining on my Tank backpack.
Guess what prompted me to write this review? I dropped my phone onto the cold, hard ground today! Fortunately, the phone was in the case and as what Dave had shown in his videos, the case completely protected the phone by absorbing the impact. As the ends are slightly arched, the impact was transferred to the case as it hit the ground and the phone did not suffer any scratches or dent at all. Initially, I hesitated in buying the case after reading some of the reviews but proceeded to buy it anyway, believing the quality of the product. My trust in the product has not been misplaced after experiencing it. To those who thought the case is 'less rugged' and tough as it's not lined by pigskin (even though I love the dark pigskin on my old iPad 3), I really don't think it's true at all. It fits my iPhone 6 perfectly. Of course, you shouldn't be using this case whilst your phone is still married to another 'slim' cover. Obviously, three's a crowd. Loving the DCB every single day!
I actually like the new case, it took a bit to break it in to get the iPhone 6 Plus to slide in easily (basically left it in over the weekend and by Monday it was pretty much good to go).
The black looks great and goes great with the gold iPhone but there is one thing I noticed yesterday (and the reason why I gave the case only four stars vs. five). I can't speak to the reason why because I'm not a leather expert but I believe because the case is no longer pigskin lined and just raw leather, there was some black color transfer on the white antenna lines on the back and sides of the iPhone. I was able to get it off by using some rubbing alcohol but currently am not using the case because of it.
Bottom line, it's a good case but if you have a silver or gold iPhone 6 / 6 Plus and mild OCD (meaning things like color transfer catch your eye and bother you), you may want to try a different color. Otherwise I highly recommend it.
I have purchased three products from Saddleback Leather and I am very happy with all three (wallet, IPad Air sleeve, iPhone 5S case). Recently, I bought the IPhone 6S case for a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and it is of a lower quality.
First, the photos on this website are of the IPhone 5S, not the IPhone 6S. The photos show a thick leather but the case I received is a thinner leather which also lacks the pigskin inner lining.
Second, as mentioned, the missing pigskin inner lining gave the older sleeves a smooth, professional quality. The newer case is a rough unfinished appearance and texture.
Third, the thin leather does not offer the same protection as the thicker IPhone 5/5S case.
In closing, I'm happy with the case since it is much better than anything found at Walmart, I prefer the older 5/5S case and will buy a redesigned 6S/Samsung S6 case if it is produced.
I don't see what the big fuss is about the new sleeves not being lined w/pigskin? The sleeve is softer and more flexible and the inside is soft as well! Great case to protect my 6plus! The only annoying thing is the pieces of loose leather thread on the inside of the case gets all over the phone screen whenever you take it out :/
I wrote a review earlier about my iphone 6 case that you can scroll through and read. I'm unable to edit it so I'm writing a new review. Apparently the company sent me the wrong sleeve and it was actually made for the iphone 5. I gave it away to a friend and they're currently using it. Then, Saddleback contacted me and sent out a new sleeve. The new one fits perfectly and is the right size. It's still snug but I can tell it's made for the iphone 6. Leather is thick and sturdy but the inside is highly brushed and I don't feel there's any need for pigskin lining. It's very soft inside but the sturdiness of the piece really will protect the phone for transport. What great customer service! Thank you guys!
With the lining the 4s cover I have is more substantial. Don't get me wrong, this cover will still protect my phone better than some cheap plastic thing that only covers the back and absorbs no impact.
The lining, however, really added something to the feel (and no doubt, protection).
Bring it back for the next one Dave!
I really hope that some thought went into not lining this case with pigskin besides cost savings. The case that I bought several years ago for my HTC Incredible is still like brand new, even though the phone hasn't been used in ages. Please Dave, don't cut anymore corners with your products. Not lining this case was a HUGE mistake, and will make me thing twice before I by from Saddleback again.
Love my iPhone5 case.
The iPhone 6, notsomuch.
That is not to say it's a bad case, it's a very good case, actually. But when compared to the "old" iPhone5 case, it's not quite to the same quality standard.
The iPhone6 case leather is much more textured and feels thinner. It almost feels like pleather. The dark coffee brown is a different hue than all my other dark coffee brown items, and that is comparing it to a lot of items, let me tell you...
Still, all-in-all, it's a very good case. Just not quite to the high standard we usually see from Saddleback.
Won't stop me from buying anything else, I must say.
after a solid 3 years of service from my last saddleback phone case I was sad to have to retire it but excited about new leather, was I ever wrong!! The new case is flimsy and unlined, the stitching even seems less sturdy and the new logo stands out like a sore thumb. Now onto the leather, this is one of many saddleback pieces I own, all in tobacco, all close to the same in colour and feel except this case, it's dark and completely characterless, it just feels cheap.
So here's the thing, years ago when I found saddleback the first purchase I made was a phone case and it was amazing, it had all the same care and quality in it that I assumed I could expect from all my future purchases and my wife and I have since spent a couple thousand dollars with saddleback. If this case was my first purchase there wouldn't have been a second. Hopefully you folks can get it together, this was a waste of money for sure.
Overall this is a good case for the iPhone6. Like others, I was a little disappointed in the lack of the liner. Having used the sleeve for 4 months now I have developed a new problem. At first, the sleeve was tight and held my device comfortably. The leather has stretched too much now and my phone will free fall out of the sleeve if turned upside down. I am not sure if it's just the piece of leather I received or if others have experienced similar issues. I did not experience this problem with my SBL iPhone4 sleeve.
I had the case for my 5 and 5s and it was GREAT!!! It was/is very durable. This one for the 6+ is not lined with pigskin at all, its unfinished/unlined leather. Because its unlined it makes it a little tough to get my iPhone out, but I think it just needs time to wear in. I am still confident it will be just as durable as the case for the 5/5s,
I was driving through Wyoming one time in winter. Blue was in the passenger seat, It was 8 degrees, snow was blowing, the roads were icy. It was about 2 in the morning, and I thought because I had big mud terrain tires on my old Land Cruiser that I would be able to drive a little faster than everybody else. I was wrong.
I rolled the Land Cruiser, and when I came to my senses, I think Blue was dead. My toolbox had hit him and he was completely limp. I held him and cried out a short and loud prayer. Miraculously, Blue came back. Maybe he was just unconscious. Maybe not. Either way, I learned then and there that nature has no friends.
An hour later, my Land Cruiser was pulled upright again and I drove on. You can bend those Iron Pigs, but you can’t break ‘em. Maybe that’s where my obsession with over-engineering everything started. I like to play it safe just in case the worst happens. If you’re the kind of person who likes over-engineered things, and has a habit of testing limits, you’re going to want to have this to protect your iPhone far more than you need it to. You can bend it, but you can’t break it.
