Fortte v3 and Smart Pouch Case Review

Fortte is a new a company that makes carrying cases for phones. The first thing you'll notice when you're creating your own custom case on their website is that besides the usual boring leather combinations you also get some pretty interesting ones like nubuck (suede) and what Fortte calls vegetal (vegan leather). Instead of killing an animal to make your case they kill a bunch of vegetables. The vegetal material looks similar to leather but feels much thinner.

Here's Forte's Vegetal v3 case in Mustard with their heavy duty clip. The inside of the case is lined with felt. While not perfectly exact, the fit and finish is pretty good. The stitching lines up for the most part and there are only a few loose ends. The cutouts line up with the exception of the cutout for the external LCD which is a little off when you close the phone.
