Incipio Leather Flip Zune Case
The Incipio leather flip Zune case is a stylish way to protect your Zune, without breaking the bank.
If you are in the market for a leather case to protect your Zune, Incipio provides two great options that look great, yet are relatively inexpensive.
The first option is the Incipio leather wallet which I discuss here.
The other is the Incipio leather flip case.
It's pretty much a toss-up between the two. They are both very similar. One of them will appeal to you more than the other depending on your individual taste. So look at both of them before you make a decision.
In terms of size the flip case is very small. It's just the right size for your Zune.
The lines on the flip case are "cleaner". It looks sleeker than the wallet.
It's also slightly less bulky when compared to the wallet. The wallet feels a little more padded.
The front view of the Incipio leather flip case. Sleek and clean. Invisible magnets hold the covers together when it's closed. So it stays closed until you open it.
The flip case uses the same magnetic trick as the wallet to keep the case closed. However, there is no clasp. Instead the cover has two, almost invisible, tiny magnets that hold it together. The lack of the clasp gives the flip case it's sleeker look.

On the back, you'll find a belt clip. This is the first major feature where the flip case differentiates itself from the wallet. The belt clip is quite small and does not bulge like we see with the Speck Dragon case.
The other major differentiator is the flip cover. To open the case, you need to flip open the front cover. That's why it's call the "flip case" (just in case you were wondering).

The flip design makes the hold switch inaccessible unless you open the case. This is a minor drawback of the flip case.
A look inside the Incipio leather flip Zune case.
The inside is identical to the wallet. There is a clear plastic screen protector. The buttons and Zune pad are exposed but are protected around the edges with leather.

The bottom is also identical to the wallet. You have a leather strip separating the headphone jack from the charging slot.
With the wallet I mentioned that the headphone jack was slightly covered. In the flip case, my headphone jack is clearly exposed. The leather strip touches the edge of charging slot but it does not hamper connection of a sync cable. You can easily charge your Zune without removing it from this case.
And the flip case shares a similar low price point with the wallet. I'm amazed how Incipio is able to provide these cases at these prices. They're a steal!
While black is the most popular option, these cases are also available in white and brown (or tan) as well.
All in all, the Incipio leather flip case is a great Zune case if you're looking to dress your Zune in leather. Highly recommended.
