    Looks great. I hope the adhesive does not lift at the corners though.

    PU Leather stick very well, including the corners. Used on more devices before.

    Copied the DIY of the OP but used the Italian leather variety from Zagg for $5 at Amazon.

    Can you post a link of the item that you bought and perhaps brief instructions and how you cut it to scale?

    Just purchased that from amazon. Zagg for ipad. Cut it with the regular photo /envelop cutter.

    These look great but there's zero protection for the hard corners.

    I guess u just have to be careful with it. The phone has been with me 2 weeks and knock on wood, still immaculate.

    I got a small chunk in mine with a slight drop. It wasn't enough to cry about, but since then I knew I needed edge protection.

    I don't think it's accurate to call a skin a case. While they look great, and I'm ordering a couple of the Zagg skins myself after seeing them here, they don't really protect the phone from damage. It's a cosmetic choice.

    Did my own DIY. I'm not a fan of cases but I really wanted a leather back for the Passport so I dressed it up with an alligator leather skin. Zagg makes awesome products so I got their iPad skin off of ebay for like $10 then cut it to fit.

    So what happens when you want to change skin? Is it easy to remove? Are there adhesive stains?

    Wondering what the Zag leather skins would look like if they were glued to a hardshell case first so the corners are still protected.

    Loving my Passport!

    Let me see how mine goes.
    I need to find a couple other parts and actually work in it. But, if it is easy enough and looks good enough, I might make more flexible others.

    There is enough material for 3 Passport skins. See how long this first one lasts. Getting the camera cutout perfect is a little tricky.

    Used a black dry erase marker on the edges. Actually applied after the skin was on the phone and any excess marker wiped off the leather and phone. Probably easier to use marker before putting the skin on

    Purchased this one from Etsy. I like it a lot. I just need to get some magnetic tape so I can stick it on the inside so I can have the sleep/wake function.

    i'm working on an ideas of creating the flip cover like samsung note, which can answering the call without open the flip. I'm waiting for the hard case and make the flip over it as i don't like to stick directly to the back of PP.

    I'm thinking of getting the Passport in white and was tinkering with a few of my colorful passport holders. I couldn't figure out a way to get it to stick other than double-sided tape. Thanks for mentioning the hard shell as a holder that's a great idea.

    I am going to use a soft shell case and Gorilla glue it to the leather.
