Best solution yet!
I think I have spent as much money trying to find the perfect case than I spent on my original Visor. The Rhodiana comes pretty close to perfect. For men, the Rhodiana case with the belt clip is a must have. The Visor is a little to big and heavy to fit a pocket, and most men don't carry purses. Hanging it on your belt solves the problem. It does have bit of a nerdy look like the slide rule cases from the 60s. But then I think pagers and cell phones look nerdy when slung on a belt.

Nice case
What a nice, well made little case. I'm still not sure if I am nerdy enough ;) to wear my visor on my belt, but the case does make it easy to do so.

Very very cool case
I've had the Rhodiana for a few weeks. I tried the Slipper III but the cover does not close well and the side trim leather is too close to the Palm Screen it obstructs writing - and it's hard to retreive your pen. The Rhodiana is every-slightly larger (still very compact), and the straps are more useful than you might think. When I run around the house packing or checking elctrical circuits, I stick my hand in the strap and run around all I like ! Cool ! Definitely pay the extra $2 for that lid-stiffening plastic Oh - and now the pen can be stored thru an outside strap - really nice.

Great Case
I've had the Rhodiana for a few weeks now. It is fabulous. I particularly like the elastic straps on the back -- great for when I'm using the Visor in the grocery store to check my grocery list. I also think it's cool that you can still see the color of your Visor while in the case (mine is blue). The only teeny little negative thing about it is that it hangs upside down while on the belt clip; you always have to close the clasp to keep the cover from flopping open while wearing it.

A+ Rhodiana
I am a teacher with little extra funds. So when I shop for a product I will do my research looking for the products that stand out from the crowd. (That's why I boaught a Visor.....no brainer.) I will always pay for quality and get what I want rather than spend less, only to be disappointed, then have to purchase another because of poor or shoddy workmanship. This is not the case with the Rhodiana. I've had my case for 2 months now and I'm very impressed. I feel confident that this case will last for a very long time. It is made very well and I feel safe in saying that my Visor is very secure. I love the belt clip. I've read that some people have had trouble with it but I think it is one of the best features of this case. I have another case that I purchased with my Visor and it stays in the closet only used on days I cant wear my Visor. You can't go wrong with this case.

BEST CASE SCENARIO
This case full-on rocks. It combines the best of all worlds: it's slim yet rugged; and using the Rhodiana-shod Visor is a pleasure. Get the belt-clip model and rock on into the Future!

Good for small falls, not for big
I liked the Rhodiana when I got it: snug fit, well constructed, nice belt clip. It protected my Visor around the house and in the car--from minor bumps and short falls onto carpet. But when I dropped the Visor onto asphalt, the screen cracked. For me, the justifying idea of a PDA is that you can take and use it anywhere, that it is ubiquitously available and utterly reliable. And for me, this means that it will be taken into ordinarily hazardous situations (like outside around pavement) with ordinarily casual use (i.e. not always carried in a bag or clipped to one's belt). So it will be dropped onto something hard sometime. This being the likelihood, the Rhodiana just can't cover the Visor across the normal range of situations. For me, that limits the case's utility absolutely. If I can't trust it, I can't trust myself with the Visor in it, and the Visor becomes at least partially something to protect rather to use. It was only because I could thoughtlessly use it that I switched from paper to begin with. So until PDA's are comfortably pocketable, I'll be using a sturdier case.

Great Case. Highly recommended
I have had this case for a few months and love it. I dropped my visor once while in the case and nothing happened! Not only does the case offer some protection, it also has a cool factor. Everyone who have a visor at work wanted one when they saw it. The only problems I had with the case at frist was getting the visor out of it. It is a bit awkward, but you get used to it after a while.

Visor back in my hand, where it belongs!
It won't stop breakage from over, say, 5', but it does feel good in the hand (with or without using the elastic handles). I don't use a belt clip, so that's important. For those who haven't, ORDER THE LEXAN PLASTIC COVER! Luckily, I work for a plastic company and found scrap to fit in the slot. Looks good with my orange Visor. You can stick the stylus in the Visor's slot AFTER you close the case cover, and leave the tip hanging out. Push it just far enough to grab, and it won't fall out! Someone still needs to make a small, hard plastic and foam protective casing that will survive a 5' drop onto a hard surface under $50. Put a 1/8" plasic casing between the foam and liner of this model, and a HUGE niche is filled! Wait, maybe I have something here... Buy this case and don't mess around, because Handspring will not fix your Visor for free anymore.

Poor Customer Service, Poor design of Clip
The Belt clip has grooves in it which weaken and break in no time at all. It took less than 2 months for mine to go. Customer service was no help at all. Am looking for a better case.
