The price is quite reasonable IMHO, but shipping to USA unfortunately doubles that. Too bad...
Usually it's the other way around. So let us enjoy once at least...

Please feel free to send me Goats, Pigs and/or Calfs, and I will be more than happy respond with tanned leather... (after dinner of course).

Not affiliated, but these cases on e-barf should fit a WP-34s. The person seemed reasonable, but I didn't discuss other size options.

That might be a lead to check before I have to BBQ Wilber...

FYI - I asked Valenta if the Durban could be made w/o the loop. They confirmed and pointed out that it would take about 4 weeks to make it.

It's the Durban Black 4XL. That does have a belt loop, unfortunately, but it is flat, so it's not in the way fortunately.
Depends. IMO it does have a belt loop, fortunately, and its dimensions suit my smartphone as well (no iPhone). :D

I think it's a shame that it has that hole, presumably to help with pushing out the device?

I think so. But I think/hope it also helps prevent corrosion, since it allows a bit of air flow (more wishful thinking than anything else maybe).

TBH, I never realised that one could ask for a model without the belt loop ;-) But in reality, it also doesn't bother me, since it's essentially a flat piece of leather.
