Krusell is probably the best known case manufacturer for portable devices, providing quality products at affordable prices. Recently, we had the chance to test a genuine leather case for our Dell x50V and post our impressions. But first, let's learn a bit more about Krusell, the company.

2. A Closer Look
For our review, Krusell sent us the "Handit with Multidapt" Case that represents the latest innovation from Krusell. These PDA cases are sober, functional and designed for everyday use. According to Krusell's site, Item no: 75232 fits the
Dell Axim x50, x50v, x51 and x51v. Of course, there are other models for all types of PDA devices, so make sure you look up the right model for your PDA/PSP/Portable device.
The main feature of the Krusell case is the unique Multidapt carrying system,
and the Life time warranty.
The package is very small, and includes only the case itself.
The package opens easily by applying slight force.
After opening the case you will see the multidapt system:
Our Dell x50V fitted instantly and securely into the case. There is no play as the device fits snugly. All major buttons, interfaces are easily accessible:
The multi-adapt system can be easily installed/removed with the help of a pencil.
More over, two credit cards, one battery and two memory cards can fit as well.
There's really not a lot to say. Krusell's quality is well known and in our case, we were more than satisfied. The genuine leather is of top quality, and the PDA device fits in instantly, with all major functions accessible while there is room for two credit cards, two memory cards and probably a spare battery too. If you are looking for a quality leather case, Krusell has the answer. The case can be found for around €25~30 on the net, making it a simple decision to purchase.
