Actually TOO tight
Only three card slots, and if you add any folded cash in the large slot, you've really got a bulge. That bulge turned on my Visor and ran down a set of batteries. I installed StayOff Hack, but that caused lockups requiring soft resets. I just needed a bit more space.

Decent case for my needs
It's a relatively small case which makes it easy to still stuff in certain pockets. It's attractive looking with the nice leather feel. Contrary to "Product Details" you can Ir in this case. The cover easily flips completely out of the way (and can even be held if the velcro strap is flipped all the way back as well) removing it out of the way for the Ir port. I've dropped the whole unit a couple of times (about 2'-3' high) each time the case has broken the fall nicely. The case isn't for everyone obviously. Limited storage for sure. The velcro closure continues to cause a head or two to turn during meetings (where everyone else is using daily planners). But the case is well made and seems to be intended for simple protection, small storage and people with shallow pockets like myself. Overall, I'm quite happy with it.

It needs to do more!!
Three credit card slots are not enough. How about five, especially considering ATM and License will take up two spots. How about a space in the crease for a pen/stylus.

Case waste of $$$
The case stinks...you can't subsitute it for a wallet. The credit card slots are a joke. The idiots at Handspring need to do more R&D

Case rubs screen
The case is a nice size/design, but they made it too small. Even with almost nothing stored in the card slots or pocket, the edge of the pocket rubs against the screen/buttons. This pressure can inadvertently turn on your Visor or just leave marks on the screen. One solution is to put the Visor in back to front so that the front is protected by the rigid back of the case. But then you can't use the Visor while it's in the case.

Good feel and look
A "no nonsense" case. There are more full featured cases and exotic finishes. Yet it's size, good finish and attractive look make it a good value. A snap would be more quite in business settings. However, overtime as you add and subtract items from the pockets and the case stretches, the "loop & hook" fastener always keeps the contents secure. The slim leather case is a good quality wallet and has the smell of real leather.

Recommended for lightening your load
I picked up the Slim Leather Case during MacWorld in January, and have been very pleased overall. By storing my driver's license, ATM card and auto card card, I have been able to forego use of a wallet altogether when going to work. Since I've been keeping my Visor in my pocket at work anyway, this allows me to keep all my valuables on my body without worrying about locking up a purse in my desk. I've even managed to insert a few business cards in the slot behind the plastic cards, with a folded bill or two. No extra room for things like change, but this is all I need -- it serves its purpose well.

Good case with minor flaws
Generally, I find the case effective and a good compromise in size and functionality. I,too, find the velcro annoying and wish the clasp attached front to back. Also, I've noted if the card slots are well stuffed pressure can turn on my Visor. Finally, unless properly positioned, the slots can rest on the screen creating small smudge marks.

Less cumbersome
I use to carry the Visor with it's snap-on cover in the leather slip case. Trying to navigate all those cases while standing on the street with your phone in one hand was nearly impossible. This is much easier to deal with.
