Default Fortte Vertical Pouch - Pics

Please Login to Remove!

Just got my Fortte case today. What I really like is the look of the leather because it doesn't look new. Their website called it "old fashioned chocolate". It's a really well build case so I'm pretty happy. The only thing I'm not diggin' is the Fortte gold logo thingy that I heard I could have removed but I'll live. Here's a few pics...

I wonder what the watermelon color would look like...

I know when I look at the order form it shows that black is the only option for picking the color...do you have to contact them to choose one of the other leathers?

If you scroll down the order page you should see the color options

Liv, I think they show some split colors too. You can email them and tell you what color you specifically want. I ordered one in Brandy that I really like. They'll pretty much customize the case anyway you want and the turn around time isn't that bad at all.

Hey Liv, here's a pick with the watermelon color. Not the same case but it gives you a good idea. Looks more red then watermelon if you ask me. Could be the lighting though.

Oooh! Thank you for pointing that out. I love that color. Red or watermelon, it is pretty and I like it. Yay for Girly Cases :D

Now that I finally was able to buy an 8700c I can get one now :D

Very nice. I'm glad I decided to wait until Monday to order because, I'm definitely picking up the 'old fashioned chocolate' over plain old black.

Okay, this is going to be kind of a dumb question...

But if I got the case without a belt clip - will I still have the sleeper function?

The weatermelon is a bit too red for me. The black is nice and the "old fashioned chocolate" also looks pretty good. The logo is acceptable but ya, would be better without.

Yes. The sleeper function in the device is "activated" by a magnet which is sewn in the body of the case. It has nothing to do with the belt clip.

You can order it without the logo or the shield. Just email them.

Yay, that is really good to know, because I really don't like the belt clip part. I just want to be able to keep it protected in my purse.

I actually looked at the colors again, I really like the chocolate but I also like the warm red, that is my favorite red color. Reminds me of my Chiefs :D

I can deal with the Gold shield because again - Chiefs! :D
