The Glide for iPhone 4 is a genuine leather sleeve that combines premium, attractive protection with the ability to quickly remove the iPhone when needed. This case was specifically designed to offer maximum coverage and scratch protection for anyone carrying their iPhone in a purse, bag, or a pocket full of loose articles that might otherwise scratch the device. As an added bonus, the Glide features an innovative dual-purpose pull-tab system that helps with securing and removing the iPhone. Here is how it works: slip the iPhone in the case, and the pull-tab recesses back into the case and then folds over the top. A secure Velcro closure system on the tab locks the sleeve closed. To remove the iPhone, simply pull upward on the pull-tab, and the iPhone glides partially out, making it easy to grab and remove from the case. The leather we use is RoHS compliant (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) and better for the environment.
