Tossed it last month - the entire case delaminated and I've replaced it with a cheap street-stall case. Thicker, but at least if it goes soon it's not a huge hit.
The only reason my case still exists is multiple copious slatherings of glue. (See previous comment 9/5/2013). The case delaminated so completely that the magnets are long gone, the thin steel strip on the side pokes out, waiting to take out an eye, and the leather flaps freely around the camera / flash hole. Definitely not impressed.
It is a very old request but I have not received any replacement although I had been promised to get a replacement unit but nobody cares after this point I think...
Really like this case, it's my regular use case. In my pocket every day for months now. Only issue I've seen so far is that it is having the same front cover corner peeling that others are experiencing. Back cover is not an issue. Pocket holds cards just fine. Love the case, just need to tack down that light front cover corner issue, and it's perfect for what I need.
I love my case but the leather is starting to peel off the corner so I applied japan glue no problem now. I do not understand such a good design built upon low quality glue material.. Really don't understand
It looked great at first, but the leather is delaminating, just with normal in and out of pocket usage. This is after, what, a fewmmonths usage tops?
GARBAGE! thanks for another crappy kickstarter reward
Same corner leather peeling issue for me. Love the case but wish it was built to last - it isn't. Part of the issue is the fact that the corners are longer than the case so can easily get caught going in and out of ones pocket. The concept is great and is exactly what I wanted in a case but 6 weeks before looking ratty is not a quality product. Hopefully they can rework their design and production issues to improve upon this. Might want to consider "upgrading" those of us having issues once you have fixed everything.
Been using mine since it arrived, sadly. the leather is starting to peel off the corner on front of case. :-(
Mines doing fine... There are a few small tweaks if make but other than that I'm really happy. I was dreading it arriving after reading the reviews. And they have faired better than other kick starter projects I've backed in terms of communication & timescales. Some are just shocking!
@CaptCase thank you so much. I love my 4s CaptCase. It holds everything I need. I have 4 cards in a (bank c.c.) protective sleeve. They have yet to fall out. The leather pocket is still pretty tight.
I have had it for almost a solid 6 weeks and it still looks brand new. Oh and it is used everyday.
I'm sorry that there are backers that are so unhappy, that they feel the need to share everything they dislike about your wonderful project. I feel sad for their family's.
Clearly, they must be newbies to kickstarter.
I'm still waiting for a project that I backed a very long time ago. But I have faith it will show up this year.
Anyways, thanks and please reply (privately) to the private message I sent to you.
Thanks, have a groovy day.
For all you folks that haven't received your cases, you ain't missing much.... After months of waiting mine was delivered last week (only after firm words in a message to Capt case) and it is AWFUL. I have an iPhone 5 case that doesn't fit. The leather is cheap and has a burnt/glued quality to the corners. The video that shows the products shows it in very good light. It's a great concept and many seem to have backed it with the idea of the magnet snapping shut, it doesn't. The entire product has a very amateur feel to it.
After production delays and what seems to be big delays in posting I think Capt case have rushed out the first batch to customers that still haven't received anything. One backer says the box it came in was the best thing but I wouldn't even go that far... The logo on mine wasn't even centred.
Anyone on here know what we can do with regards of contacting Kickstarter. I don't have money to throw around and I have backed a project that has done so badly that I have had to buy another case from another company. Contact with Captcase goes well until you encounter problems with the quality. After numerous messages back and forth about missing deliveries I am yet to receive a reply regarding my case not fitting.
Thanks Capt case, you were my first Kickstarter experience. I won't be backing again.
Albert I'd agree with you, the one for my 5 is holding up just fine and I'm really happy with it.
@Captcase are you going to send out another survey in a couple of months time? Would give you a true picture of who's happy and who has perhaps had issues?
I've been using the CaptCase on my 4s everyday since I got it at the end of May and it still looks good as new. That's pretty good for something that goes in and out of my jeans pocket all the time.
Your package has shipped, please check your messages for more information, thanks.
Still waiting to ship.....
CAPTCASE is total junk. Falling apart.
I have informed that the item is not shipped since one week passes still no info. moreover after reading the complaining comments, I have to say that the project team should correct the problems and resend the correct product if they have intention to enter the market. kickstarter is not an experimental place. indeed we are the real customers but having a little bit patience and intention to take risks.
Disappointed after two weeks of daily use. The back pocket is already starting to fail. I am not as upset as some of other backers. It is after all a crowd funding site for developing products. But a month would have been nice, rather than two weeks that I got out of it.....
Back to the drawing board for me....
iPhone 4S backer here. I waited over two months to receive my case. I was stoked when it finally arrived 15 days ago. Guess what?
The leather lining is already coming off of the plastic that's in between the layers of leather.
So bummed that this didn't live up to my expectations.
In the UK & not got mine yet...
Here's my two cents. (iPhone 5)
Have to say initial impressions weren't great, like others have said the magnet is flimsy and the finish in places is 'rushed' shall we say. In addition mine came with a big dent in the back cardholder so you've got some quality control issues to sort.
Having said that I'm coming round to it. A week in and the leather round magnet has loosened up and now it 'snaps' shut properly. The card holder is great for my work access card (but possibly no others) and I like the style of it. Have to say the fit is excellent as well, given that we waited longer for that is say that was the right call, I wonder though if your manufacturer got annoyed and rushed the corrected ones through.
So all in all I'd say 7/10 from me and ill carry on using it, but you definitely need to get the price down, this is a £20 case at most. My other suggestion would be to get something into the hinge to reinforce it, the lid flops around too much at the moment when its open.
Thanks and good luck for the future
still hasn't received anything.
Been using the case for 2 weeks now. And I'm not impressed at all. The leather is peeling off the holes for the back camera and front camera is not cut professionally.
The card slot is too stretched with only 2 cards. Looked great the first second I got it.
I've ah my case for almost two weeks and I must say the glue holding it together is already falling apart some of the felt on the inside has frayed and altogether the quality of this product is horrible. I had such high expectations and nothing. Even the slot on the back for cards already can't even hold two cards anymore because it's so stretched out from literally TWO cards. The case looks amazing until it's actually used for a week then falls apart.
CaptCase is a perfect example of why not to support anything on Kickstarter. I got mine today. very poor build quality and execution. The box it came in was the best part about it. I brought it into the office asked if anybody wanted it, nobody did. So it is now in the garbage where it belongs.
Huzzah! MIne finally arrived today! I'm impressed with the quality. My wife thought it was really attractive and stylish too. Great design Christopher! I'll be sure to spread the word about CaptCase.
I've been using my 4s case for almost a week now --- I like it; works and looks great!
I received my iphone 5 case and I really like it. It closes perfectly and I think the magnet is just right. Minimalistic and clean lines all while being functional. I'm a happy backer.
Gotta agree with some of the previous posts. I got my iPhone 5 case today and am pretty disappointed with the build quality. I can't believe that there isn't one stitch in the seams...it's ALL glued on! The cuts in the leather look like my 3 year old cut the case out...the leather even feels a bit paper like in places. Maybe I had my hopes a bit too high for this case, but it will probably end up in my drawer as well.
Good luck with version 2!
I got my iPhone 5 case yesterday, and I actually really like it. The magnet is a bit weak, but other than that, I really like the fit of mine. In fact, I think it will actually get better after it wears a bit and "breaks in". I don't have any issues with the cover staying closed.
Unfortunately I have to agree with James and Alex. The case is nice too look at. The portion that the iPhone (5) fits in is perfect. The cover leaves a lot to be desired. The magnet is virtually useless, and the fit is very loose/sloppy. Unfortunately it's not a case I would be willing to use. I happy the project was funded, and I hope the iPhone 4's case is a better fit, but they need to go back to the drawing boards for the 5.
Received my iPhone 5 case today, though it looks nice, overall a little disappointed. The front cover/flap seems too loose and flimsy, and the magnet is far too weak to keep the over closed securely. Not sure I will use this, as I don't feel as if it will protect the case if the front cover opens up so easily.
My iPhone 5 case arrived today, and I have to say... overall I'm pretty disappointed. The quality isn't that great, it's flimsy, and doesn't stay closed. Sorry, but this turned out the be a huge disappointment. Had I seen the final product in a store - I definitely would not have purchased it.
I'm glad the project was successful, but this isn't a case I'm ever going to actually use.
Got my case today and must say I love it!!!
Ich stelle noch mal meine Frage :)
Zufällig jemand hier, der sein 4S Case in Deutschland schon hat?
I received my iPhone 5 case in the mail today. Its a very nice case. Fits very well. I have several cases for my phone, Otterbox, Lifeproof, etc... but I wanted this case for when I am off on the weekend or on vacation. Thanks Chris, now my case collection is complete.
Hey, quick question. I know you've only just started shopping the iphone5 cases but when you do how long will the delivery be to the UK?
Another day gone by without a case :(
I've had my case for a little over a week now and I LOVE IT!!!
The only question I have is, Is there any way I can get a discounted iPhone 5 case when I upgrade my phone? LoL!
No, seriously...Is there?
Just received my Captcase today and I've gotta say I love it! Well made with that beautiful leather, looks amazing and well worth the wait! Thank you very much Christopher and everyone else, love it!
I have not received notification that you have sent me case.
And what about track number?
Got my 4s case a few days ago and not a huge fan :( If anyone wants it, feel free to make me an offer.
Hi Justin, Yes the iPhone 5 cases will begin shipping towards the end of this week and the beginning of next week, as we need to assure the quality of the cases before sending them out to you all. Thanks for your patience!
If you guys could check on mine too that would be great. Waiting on a 4s case :)
iPhone 5 cases getting shipped this week as planned? I can't wait for mine to show up!
Hi Nathan, please check your messages for an update on your case.
Can you check on my shipment please? I'm leaving Wednesday for holidays and it would be great to have it along with me. Thought it would have been here by now
Hi Sebastian, I will check on your shipment and message you soon. Thanks for your patience!
