    First of all I want to thank @DuarteFTW for his generosity by sharing his invite with me and I realize that it sometimes pays to be an active forum member. :D

    P.S. I dont have any invites whatsoever, sorry.

    So I placed my order on Friday and arrived today on Wednesday. Shipping was pretty straight forward since I live in California and I had to chase down the mailman as he delivered my package. Anyway I opened the package and was amazed at what I saw...

    Official Bamboo StyleSwap Cover



    My overall first impressions of the cover were pretty good. OnePlus really out did themselves with the Bamboo Style Swap Cover. I could feel all the grooves of the Bamboo and the OPO itself didn't feel too bulky despite what some people have said in the past. I find it bitter sweet that they did not make these covers more accessible to everyone. I was contemplating buying it from a 3 party retailer, but I'm glad that I waited.

    Is it worth the money?

    At $50 USD it's definitely worth it considering that only a handful of devices on the market offer this look and feel. The quality is exceptional, but if you're paying close to $100 USD because of custom fees I would say just keep your money.

    Thanks, I'll fix them.

    Edit:
    Extra: Here's a look my old early production Sandstone back cover


    I'm definitely holding on to this one since OnePlus no longer ships them with the CM logo or that specific text font. (From a June 2014 batch) Thanks for reading.

    Here is the funny thing if I met an opo user I probably would just look at him and possible talk but I meet an opo user with a bamboo cover than I would probably hug that person and talk way more

    I got mines for 60 dollars on ali express. You don't need to wait for invite to get them. I did wait about 3 weeks to receive mines from mail. They mail from China. Mine came with micro and nano sim tray, the instructions, and the blue tool to get the cover off. It came in Oneplus red/white box.

    Are you going to case it?
    I have my bamboo cased and take the case off only when I'm not likely to drop the phone on a hard surface.
