Flip Top case (Prism)

Thu Feb 15, 2001 - 12:19 AM EST - By James Hromadka


Although my review case didn't have a beltclip, Vaja uses the same style beltclip across its entire line of cases.  The beltclip is quite small, and is a little tricky at first to press the small release button while pulling up on the Visor, but with some practice it gets easier to remove the Visor.  The beltclip swivels the Visor easily, and because the beltclip attaches to a metal knob, there's one less thing that can break on the case.  The only thing that the Vaja case could improve upon is the beltclip, as it is almost too small and narrow.

Leather contoured against back of VisorThe Flip Top uses a plastic covering over the hardware buttons, similar to the E&B Slipper.  This is a matter of personal taste as to whether you like this or not; it doesn't bother me, as the covering is soft and non-intrusive.

What I like most about the Flip Top is how well everything fits together.  I have access to everything I need on the Visor Prism.  Once the leather has been broken in, the only time you will need to remove the Visor Prism is if you have to use a non-standard size Springboard module.

There is padding on the front and back of the Prism Flip Top case, and the Visor is held in very securely when the flap is closed.  The premium quality leather comes at a premium price -- the price is higher than other beltclip cases, but the quality of the leather and the features of the Flip Top more than make up for this.

The magnetic closer version of the Prism Flip Top case is $69.90, while the snap version that has all the same features is $46.90.
