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.
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
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.
