This is my first Mapi case and I based my purchase initially on the features (the Alinda & Smyrna bundle). Mapi is the only company that I can find that sells the bundle in all leather. I have been using it for about three weeks and am very happy with the craftsmanship of the case. The quality of the leather will ensure many years of daily use. My only suggestion is that I think that the drawstring pouch is not necessary if you use your case every day.

I've had my case and cover for about 5 weeks. As expected, the leather and design are beautiful. My biggest concern about this case was the belt clip. I've always used clips that have a spring and hinge that surrounds the width of my belt. I was worried about a clip that only was spring steel and might slide or pull off. Happily, the clip on this Mapi case is more secure than the hinged clips I have used. My Iphone 4S fits nicely in the cover and slides easily in and out of the case.
In short, I am delighted with my purchase. Sure, it is the most I've ever spent on a cell phone case but quality costs more. I would buy this case again in a heartbeat and will shop with Mapi for any future needs.
As a company, they communicated every step of the purchase, and shipping. (Delivery was actually two days earlier than estimated)
