Leather case for Nexus 7 ?

Has anyone found a case they like for the Nexus 7 ?

I have an excellent black leather case on my Nook ST and an equally neat leather case on my wife's Kobo
Both from SkinDigital, unfortunately they don't make a simple case for the Nexus7 only a triple folding type of case that is used for propping the Nexus 7 up on a table and I have no need of that function
We use the eReaders on the train or bus and want a leather case for the Nexus 7 the same as the Kobo and Nook cases
Has anyone got such a case or seen one available anywhere ?

Here's the type of case that I use. http://www.amazon.com/EXOTEK-Slim-Fi.../dp/B008MIQGTQ

It can fold out into a stand if you unhook the left side claws. I never use that feature. It's a very slim case with no bulky extras to get in the way.

got one from Logiix

"Logiix Roadster N7 is a slim fitting and lightweight case with no extra bulk made out of high quality eco leather. The reinforced fitted frame allows you to easily convert into typing and landscape mode, while the soft microfiber protects your Google Nexus 7 from scratches. As a part of the SmartLine series, your Nexus will automatically wake up when opening the cover and enter sleep mode upon closing."

Not the thinnest or lightest case - but these just ooze quality, and are a pleasure to hold.

I love the one I have for my kindle, and it has inspired purchases by my husband, brother, other brother, and sister in law!)

I love, love, love this case:

I love it more than my Nexus 7! Also comes in black and magenta. Oh, and it's only $5.

I wanted the smallest case possible for the Nexus, as a lot of the generic leather 7" tablet cases add a considerable amount of bulk to what should be a slim device. I settled on a Poetic Slimline Portfolio case and have been happy so far (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008NMCPTQ). I also have a Timbuk2 sleeve for when I want to use it nekkid, but keep it protected in my bag.

+1 on the Poetic Slimline Portfolio -- I have it on my N7 and love it. Minimalistic and fits perfectly with no added bulk. :thumbup:

I have had trouble holding my 10 inch Viewsonic tablet so I went with the MoKo slim fit for my Nexus 7. I chose the carbon fiber surface but what I like is the wide, soft hand-strap on the back which helps me hold the tablet on my hand.

They have multiple colors and I hated to get black (because so many things are black) but the other colors were a bit too bright.

+1 on Oberon. I have their Kindle DX cover (the 'Sky Dragon' in red, for those in the know) and love it (and get comments all the time). Spendy, but worth every penny.

I actually ended up finding a Nexus 7 keyboard.. price wasn't too bad either. Works like a dream, although it will take some getting used to the small keys.

Notice its $14.95 now $5.00 less than when I ordered it. To bad Amazon doesn't have a price guarantee.
