SENA Elega Pouch Case Review

Hey all!

Thanks for tuning in to another edition of X1Zero’s Corner.

Today’s post will be a case review of the SENA Elega Pouch.

�Elega�� by SENA

As some may remember, I did a review of the SENA Slim Case a few months back which received an A+. Today, I have a review of the �Elega Pouch�, another case line-up from SENA.

The Elega Pouch is one a SENA’s most elegant cases. It has a very simple, clean, and slim design with an included ratchet (spins) belt clip. The outside of the case is made in fine European Napa Leather with a soft velvet inside lining. It is difficult to see with the pictures, but the entire outside of the case is padded so if you were to drop this case with your iPhone inside, the iPhone would survive (I tested this one with my own Elega on numerous occasions). This particular case is dark brown in colour, with a crocodile type skin design however the Elega line comes in both this type and just regular flat leather.

Once the iPhone is snugly fit into the case, the Elega provides almost 100% protection. The only exposed parts of the phone would be the very top by the silent switch (see pictures) but other than that, the iPhone is completely covered. The other design feature I really like with SENA are the two speaker holes along the bottom of the case. As you can imagine, when a call comes in, it would be difficult to hear the ringer because of the cushion of the case. Well, with the speaker holes cut out nicely along the bottom, every call/sound comes through nicely.

As I mentioned above, the case does comes with a ratchet clip and once you attach it to your belt or pant, it does not bulge out like some pouches. It is very slimming along your side and the belt clip provides a very strong hold. In other words, once this case is attached to you, it would take some serious effort to take it off if the case was in a situation in which it could fall.

The design of the case will also accommodate either the iPhone or iPhone 3G which is a bonus for those who either do not have an iPhone 3G or have both iPhone and iPhone 3G.

As you can see, SENA does cases right. I give the Elega line a solid 10/10. The Elega line, as well as the other iPhone case lines from SENA can be purchased from their online store.

Enjoy!

    Fantastic case! I give it a 10+. I have the case from the 1st gen iphone and am using it for my 3G. It worked just fine but then I put the Best Skins Ever film on and it is sticky now. Is the 3G case any better with the IS or BSE films on it? Like a bit wider is what I am asking or are they all the same?
    My 1st gen iphone with the IS film was just fine so I am wondering if it is worth getting a new case. I like your sample – want to have a contest?? 🙂

    I was using this case but in black with my 3G and the IS on it, and it was perfect sliding in/out. No problems at all. I think the issue may be with BSE.

    As for contests, stay tuned!

    No, same product exactly. It feels exactly the same as my IS did on my 1st gen iphone. And from other comments and writings I have read it is the same.Goes on the same too. I did have to stretch my case out a bit at the beginning when I got my 2G case.
    So your case is the 2G ?

    The one in the review is for iPhone and iPhone 3G, as per the box.

    However, I have a black one from way back when it was just iPhone and I have a new one that is black that is iPhone/iPhone 3G. As far as I can tell, they are identical.

    Nice case! Though I think I would probably choose to take one in flat black. Something about the brown and the “alligator” style just doesn’t quite agree with me. And, apparently it would fit my 2G! Sweet. Just curious about the previous case give-away. Perhaps I just haven’t looked or heard anything yet, but I was curious when winner’s might be announced… It was the first one I entered… does it take a little longer? (It’s alright if it does lol. No pressure!)

    Thanks for the review!

    nice case but i think I’m good with my invisible shield and ipod video case:). case are usually like 30 dollars(too expensive for me:/) and they hide the looks of the phone when using it.

    A friend of mine has the Elga pouch. I don’t mind this pouch but I had to mention that another friend of mine just picked a handmade leather pouch called the Super-Slim from ikonicedge. I’m going to go with this one as it’s made in New Zealand rather than China and the leather is much thicker and softer too.

    This guy from New Zealand is pathetic. He posts everywhere where Sena is mentioned and tries to advertise his cases.
    Please, be ethical and do your homework before posting. Sena is not made in China. It is Italian leather and handcrafted in Turkey.
