We all like to show our tech a little love and this case has to be one of the best I've seen for the iPhone 6 in this style.
The lovely folks at Proporta gave me one of these to road test and it's not left my phone since it's arrived! The case is made of a premium leather casing which has a firm structure under the hood which means you get the sense that this will both provide dent protection as well as scratch proofing.
The case features a nice pull tab on the back which snaps back into place through a magnetic closure which means you don't have a ribbon flapping about - or having to do any annoying tapping and squeezing to retrieve your phone when you hear it ringing!
Check out the gallery below and follow @Proporta over on Instagram to check them out for yourselves.
Proporta iPhone 6 Real Leather Sleeve - Boxed
The case comes in a neatly packaged and easy to unpack box which has a premium feel to it and really showcases the product.

The sleeve is made of high quality and study black leather. You can feel the structure and protection in the case!

The sleeve had a simple pull tab mechanic hidden in the back of the case which makes it easy to lift the iPhone 6 from the case with a simple tug on the tab.
What makes this a nicer implementation of this than on many of these designs I have seen is the premium tab closure that is on the end of the ribbon.

It's made of a high quality metallic tab which has a hidden benefit of being snapped back into place by the magnetic closure hidden in the leather case.
In the delirium of buying my iPad, I (like many other happy campers) flocked to the altar of Apple for a case to protect my new "Magical" product. Which was not an entirely bad idea. The Apple made iPad case is not all that bad. It's simple, does what it says on the tin. However one word that cannot be assigned to it is "inconspicuous" - mainly due to the big old Apple logo whacked on the front. This means, that if you are like me and don't fancy getting your last pay cheque nicked on the tube or bus, you will need to carry the iPad in a bag or cover - AKA - Not Practical.
The Griffin case is very well put together, making Faux leather actually look quite good, which is hard to do. It uses a sliding mechanism built into the security strap allowing you to give a gentle tug on the strap and it will lift the iPad out of the case, which from there you can slide it out quite easily.
There are obviously a few trade offs that you have to accept when using a Sleeve style case - the main one being, that whenever you take the iPad out of the case to use it, it is instantly unprotected from drops or scratches, however the case feels fairly well padded so when the iPad is in the case it feels fairly well looked after.
All in all, one of the better cases in this area that I have seen, and for £25 one of the best value for money!
Here are some of my own shots of the case:
