User Opinions: Bi-Fold Leather case

KnightMUse it Daily, works great

Thumbs Up

I have been using the case for awhile now, and it has been great. For a student in school, the velcro is a bit loud and does call attention to you. Besides that, it works great and holds my pilot pentopia pen in there too ;)

SvZurichVery useful

Thumbs Up

I enjoyed having paper to write on, more pockets to store items, and I think this is a very smart design!

Lower expectation!

VisorUserNice but not secure.

Thumbs Up

I bought the $49.95 case with my Platinum. The case is nice. On the other hand, the way the visor "clips" into the bi-fold is not something I'd bet on holding my $300 plastic toy. The black sewn in clip holds the Visor about as secure as if I were carrying the visor around by the tips of my finger nails. Case nice. Method to secure visor in case - risky at best.

Anonymoustoo bulky

Thumbs Down

I bought this case because it was the only one available for my prism, i liked the fact that it doesnt use velcro, but once you start to put a couple of credit cards in it, it starts to get really thick really fast. A zipper option would be really cool.

Thumbs Up

I spent a lot of time reading about cases before I decided to commit to this one. I was disapointed to find that the case doe not hold my Visor as "tightly" as I had expected. My Visor will fall out if I move the case or the device a bit when it is open. Other than that, the case is very nice, it fits well in my jacket's chest pocket, and it is secure when closed. I think a zippered version would be a nice option.

ChipBulky, but it works

Thumbs Up

Here's a tip: Don't buy this case unless you really want to replace your wallet. If you do want a wallet/Visor-case combo, this thing can't be beat. It takes a while to break in, but it's worth the wait. Also, if you're going to gripe about price, then you shouldn't have dropped a couple hundred bucks to buy a PDA. Use a paper calendar instead.

AnonymousIt suits me

Thumbs Up

I work in the AV industry. I've gone through three Visors due to them being cliped on my belt moving gear & cases. Lean the wrong way over something and CRACK. Now that I use the bi-fold. This forces me to carryfully place it elsewhere to do extrenious work. With my DL and C-Cards in it, I never forget it.

NPSBulky, yes, but still useful for some...

Thumbs Up

I received my bi(tri)-fold as a gift so I really cannot complain... I feel this case would be better for women, or at least men who often carry around a briefcase or somesuch. It's bulky (b/c it fits nearly everything you'd need, sans change) but it does replace a wallet (unless you're hung up on your big-name status-symbol wallet of course) and I've enjoyed the way it leaves one less thing for me to search for: if I have my wallet I have my Visor, and vice versa. Keep in mind though, this could lead to a double-whammy if you lose your bi-fold or worse, it's stolen. Suggested improvements: yes, a coin purse area, and it should come in an adjustable snap or better yet, a roomy ZIPPERED version too, the velcro is LOUD and always calls attention to you. Depends if you're into that :-). I'd be interested in looking into slimmer cases for the heck of it. Men, I hate to say it but the Visor is bulky in general, and the cases only add to the bulk, my male friends fare better with Palms. Sorry.

AnonymousFifty dollars?

Thumbs Down

Is there an option to lease?
