The next case in line for a review comes to us from the premium casemaker, Vaja. They specialize in high-quality leather goods for everything from smartphones to passports, and they don’t skimp on quality. They are a member of the “Built for BlackBerry” program so you know their cases are engineered to the exact specifications of your BlackBerry smartphone or tablet. The case featured in this review is the Aero Grip case for the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930. Follow me past the break for the full review of this beautiful case.
Vaja’s tagline is “Make it Yours” and you can certainly do that with the Aero Grip case for the BlackBerry Bold 9900. The first thing I noticed from Vaja, before I even took the case out of the box, was quality and uniqueness. Each case from Vaja comes in a custom box featuring their signature rainbow coloring. The packaging is some of the most attractive and creative I have seen for mobile phone cases. Once I took the case out of the box and gave it a good once-over, I knew that quality was not only a feature of this case, it was in Vaja’s DNA.
This case is made of high-quality, full-grain, cowhide just like all of Vaja’s cases are. The leather looks and feels just like you would expect high-quality leather to. It has a matte finish that only gets better with use and age. Each Vaja case is hand made and designed to withstand many years of use with proper care. You can learn more about the leather used and the care required on the Vaja website, which is linked at the end of the review.
The case fits snugly around the edge of the device and allows for full access to all buttons, ports, and the touchscreen. The case adds little bulk to the phone and is perfect for pocket carrying. This is a luxury case that is meant much more for show than for protection. While the case provides scratch protection to the back of the device, unless you happen to drop your Bold square on its back, this case will offer little drop protection.
All in all, this is a beautiful case for those looking to add some additional style and sophistication to their Bold. It’s not recommended for those that are prone to dropping their phone. You can grab this case for just $75.00 from the Vaja website. They also offer tons of other options for BlackBerry Smartphone and PlayBook cases, so if you’re interested in a high-quality leather case from a Built for BlackBerry Partner, be sure to check out their website below for their full line.
