Default New GizmoSkin Snake skin 8700 cases

Please Login to Remove!

Hey, anyone notice the new GizmoSkin 8700 cases made of snake skin?

They look pretty darn amazing.

I'm not affiliated or anything, I just own their black case.

I've never had anything snake skin so I may be totally wrong but wont these scales rub off after normal wear and tear?? Can’t w8 for the first review...

As silly as it is saying this about my own productxxx8230; They are extremely nice cases.

The pictures arenxxx8217;t the greatest, but we are getting professional shots in the next 2 weeks.

The snake skin cases wexxx8217;ve developed are more or less for a niche market. Those who like snake skin products REALLY like snake skin but they are certainly not for everyone.

To address a couple of questions/concerns that came up herexxx8230;

1) the skins used are no different than any other leather products in terms of environmental awareness; the type of snake used is not an endangered species. In fact they seem to be dong quite wellxxx8230; http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,171358,00.html (That one is for you Skrilla) ;)

2) Python skin is very strong and you will not see scales coming off. Ixxx8217;ve specifically tried to pull some of them off and the worst you can do is bend them in another direction if you pull hard enough.

One more thing...why is there no cut-out for the speaker phone? Or am I missing something?

EDIT:
I guess a speaker phone cut-out is not needed for a holster....it's still early...my only excuse.

LoL, you are probably right. Snake skin shoes seem to be coming back. Steve Madden has a whole line now.

I'll start with this combo.



For the interest of you niche customers, or apparently for the entertainment sake of everyone else ;) ... Here are the other models available

Actually, as someone else mentioned, crocodile or even leather stamped to look like crocodile in your open case style would be really nice. A nice really dark brown would be super looking.

Also, it would be great if you could do the open case without any belt loop or the metal ring as an option for those of us who want only a case and no clips or other hardware on the outside.

Ouch...I'm not a snakeskin fan either (and it costs 99 bones), but like was stated - there's a market out there for almost any style.

I do like to see GizmoSkin venturing beyond their base flap style to create a pouch since not everyone prefers a flap - variety is GOOD. Would be nice to see the pouch style offered in other skins: black, tan, brown leathers.

I just ordered a Fortte pouch in dark brown since I prefer that style, but would be interested in a GizmoSkin pouch in black as I think the leather looks nicer.

Good lord!! I'll never question anybody else's taste but honestly, if somebody was walking around the office with one of those cases, I would laugh at him. But, then, that's our office :D
