Vaja announces UMPC carrying pouches


In spite of the "carring" typo in this morning’s email newsletter, ultra premium case manufacturer Vaja unveiled its first-ever line of leather carrying pouches for UMPCs. Starting at $120 and available in hundreds of color combinations, the padded pouches feature anti-shock protection and come in four distinct sizes.

I’ve been using the iPhone classic urbano pouch since July and can definitely attest to Vaja’s commitment to outstanding craftsmanship using nothing but exceedingly high quality materials.

Dimensions Starting Price
Size 1
9.05" x 5.70" x 1.10" $140
Size 2
5.70" x 3.54" x 1.06" $120
Size 3
6.10" x 3.93" x 1.57" $120
Size 4
5.31" x 3.93" x 0.90" $120


The cases are available in four different sizes to accommodate most of the UMPCs currently on the market. Size 2, for example, is a nice fit for the OQO Model 02. The Fujitsu Lifebook U810, on the other hand, would have to slide around a bit in a Size 1 case.



What I love most about Vaja cases is their level of customization. Even though I chose a boring black-black combination for my iPhone case and would probably buy something like the black-steel gray combo shown above, the possibilities are virtually endless. Actually, I calculated at least 650 possible combinations; Vaja lists more than 1,000, but I think that’s taking into account the personalization.


Like all of its products, the UMPC pouches can be personalized with embossed text ($10 fee) or graphic ($30 fee) and are individually crafted by hand. This handicraft process takes 25 days to complete, so be sure to factor that into your purchasing plans.
