"PU leather" is polyurethane (plastic) leatherette, not REAL leather,
This review is from: Bluecell Dark Brown color leather classic DC digital camera protection case/bag/cover for Sony Nex 5 Nex5 with 18-55mm Lens Camera,flash (Camera)I saw the 5-star reviews and was very interested and surprised at the modest cost, but then, in small print, I saw "PU leather." This case should be described as "leatherette" or "imitation leather" rather than "leather." Unlike real leather, polyurethane is subject to damage by heat and cold. I find this description deceptive.
I ended up buying a real leather case for double the cost from a buy-it-now Chinese supplier at another marketplace. Nicely done; smells like leather.

But do you happen to know that the "leather smell" from real leather is NOT from leather itself, but is artificial. However most people like the "leather" smell, definitely better than the plastic one.
