Kaza Deluxe makes some of my favorite leather cases and their leather half case for the Fujifilm X-Pro 2 is no exception. These cases are simply awesome and are without a doubt the best bang for the buck considering everything that you get.
Kaza Deluxe – Fujifilm X-Pro 2 Review
I’ve been using this case and the Kaza strap on my X-Pro 2 and couldn’t be happier. The cases are handmade giving each case some unique character and by no means are they perfect. Shipping also takes some time since they come from Hong Kong.

Build Quality & Materials
Build quality is good but don’t expect it to be perfect. You’ll find many imperfections in the cuts and in the edging which is to be expected when getting handmade products. Even Luigi straps are by no means perfect (but his are very close). That’s what gives these products character and makes them unique.
I’ve also been using this case a lot with a tripod and can happily report that the tripod mount at the bottom is very stable and secure.
I’m not sure of the type of leather they use. They just say cow hide on their website. I don’t think it’s as bad as genuine leather but maybe it is and that’s why they paint their edges. It might just be a top grain but is definitely not full grain. At least it doesn’t look / feel full grain and if it was, the strap would be a lot more expensive. But I could be wrong here.
This I think is the main difference in what you get with a Kaza case verses the LeicaTime / Luigi cases. Sure his cases cost 3x as much, but if you want a strap that will last you literally forever, the quality of Luigi’s leather is vastly superior.
Now, that doesn’t mean the Kaza case is bad, it’s totally fine and the case feels great and I have no doubt it will last the lifetime of the camera.
If you want something that looks cool, feels good in the hand and will provide your camera with some extra protection, this case does the job perfectly and the price is very reasonable.
The strap is so-so, I’ve been using it without any problems so far. There are some bad cuts and edging that’s now wearing off on my strap.
I wouldn’t buy this strap as a stand alone strap, there are much better options out there. However, they basically throw this in with the cases and it works totally fine plus the finish matches the case which just looks good.
The stitching is a nice addition but could use some better quality control. When I got my case it was beautiful but there was one spot were the stitches were slightly loose. I’ll have to see how they hold up over the next few years.
Kaza Deluxe Leather Case – The Bottom Line
If you’re looking for a great leather case to protect your camera, adds extra grip and just looks cool, the Kaza Deluxe is probably one of your best options at the price. There are more expensive cases out there and also less expensive cases that all offer different features and have different capabilities, but the Kaza case looks beautiful and provides you with a great combo at a very fair price.
