Vaja Cases More Beautiful in Person

Vaja case for the iPod miniEven a few months later, you’re still able to smell the yummy aroma of leather from the beautifully crafted leather Vaja iPod case. I was skeptical when it first arrived – beautiful and a deep shade of turquoise. This case (for my iPod mini) looked too nice to actually use. However, the color and leather have resisted wear and tear much better than my previous plastic case did. It almost looks better with a little time. The Vaja case is solid and padded and although I have not dropped the iPod, I think it would help pad a fall. What I like about the case is that it is unique, like my iPod itself.
The Vaja iVod mini (US$60) features:
- Headphone access
- Screen protector
- Easy access to all touch functions
- Syncs & charge through travel cable
- 2 2/8″ x 3 6/8″ x 7/8″ inches
Vaja is famous for all kinds gadget cases and with the help of their site, it is easy to craft a great gift or choose something for yourself, including engraving and many color choices. The case is simple and has even stretched slightly to fit the iPod even better. The lines are simple and it adds protection, but without any clips or protrusions it fits nicely in my bag. The leather makes the slick surface more gripable, but it still slides into my pocket nicely.
Vaja cases are available from InnovaCases.
