Minimal protection for the bottom and bottom edges from scratching is really all I'm looking for.All my (3) cameras have extra grips - I like the L-plate QR style. Half cases offer minimal protection but do look good .
Vertical Hand Grip Quick Release Plate Bracket Holder for Fujifilm X-E3 XE3 X E3 | eBay
I have a Gariz leather case for my X70 and a MegaGear PU case for my GX85. Some of the faux leather ones aren't that bad, problem is the MegaGear case for the X-E3 is $26, the Gariz is $110.Grip. All of my cameras have one save the X100F which sits in a leather half case.
Don't do PU. It's plastic...
VERY helpful, the 18mm give me a lot of perspective on the grip.I had a Gariz. Came with the X-E3 I bought. Nice aesthetic. Protection for the bottom. Matched my Domke/Fuji F-803.

Picked up the Meike. Arca plate on the bottom. I like the feel much better. The price is nice too.
