Griffin Elan Snap-In Review
Griffin’s Elan Snap-in is a leather-bound holster designed for those who want to carry their iPhone attached to their belt or bag. Mercifully, Elan wraps tightly around the iPhone so it shouldn’t fall out, but offers no protection for most of the device. Griffin provides a thin plastic stick-on face protector and a tough plastic belt clip, but we don’t think this case offers anything like enough protection for any commuter. We also reckon that showing off a device as heavily-hyped as the iPhone in a hip-attached holster is guaranteed to ensure someone robs you.
It’s probably fine for City gents and rich cats living somewhere beyond everyday society, indeed, we suspect well-heeled 40-something males may be Elan Snap’s target market. But it doesn’t protect your phone. It does ship with a screen -cleaning cloth, which is something.
