One of the negatives of being an early adopter of technology is the lack of protective accessories for the latest & greatest tech-toys. I started my search for a leather case immediately after buying an iPod Touch. At that time there were not many options out there. Beyza was one of the first to create leather cases for the Touch; the SlimLINE Vertical Leather Pouch and UniSR MN Lateral Leather Pouch.
Beyza Apple iPod Touch SlimLINE Vertical Leather Pouch Case
The Beyza SlimLINE Vertical Leather Pouch Case is very well made. The exterior of this slipper case is constructed of a thick, top quality leather. The leather is smooth, well finished and meticulously stitched. The interior lining is a smooth velvet that softly holds your Touch in place. The case is reasonably well padded while not making the extremely slim and sleek Touch too bulky.
The Vertical Leather Pouch Case is perfectly fitted for the iPod Touch. Even upside down, the Touch is securely held in place.
So much so that Beyza designed the access point on the bottom of the case to not only connect the syncing/charging cable, but also allow you to push the device out a bit to more easily remove it from the case.
Inserting the device upside down in the case allows you to not only connect the sync cable but the earbuds as well. The Beyza iPod Touch SlimLINE Vertical Leather Pouch Case comes in fifteen colors and three leather textures.
This slipper pouches’ minimalist design is both a positive and negative. The case leaves the Touch exposed at the top and could definitely allow it to be damaged or marred if dropped. However, it is perfect to slip into your coat pocket or purse.
Beyza Apple iPod Touch UniSR MN Lateral Leather Pouch Case
The Beyza iPod Touch UniSR MN Lateral Leather Pouch Case is identical to the vertical pouch in terms of quality of materials and workmanship, but provides more protection and versatility of use.
The horizontal pouch protects the Touch on all sides and the flap is held firmly in place by two sets of strong, embedded magnets.
The case has an integrated leather belt clip which is well engineered into the back of the case. Underneath the leather, there is a strong, rigid piece of metal that secures the case to your belt.
Depending on how you insert the Touch into the case, the earphone port is accessible from either side. The sync/charging port is not accessible while the Touch is in the case. This case does add some bulk to the Touch but not horribly so. The Beyza iPod Touch UniSR MN Lateral Leather Pouch Case comes in four colors.
Both of these Beyza cases are very nice and I like them both. I switch back and forth between them, depending on what I am doing.
