Close, damn you! This is a case that requires taming.
Kanam by Davarg Category: Cases Works With: iPhone 5 Price: $ 45
This is the first part of a two-part review. When you see the case Iâ€™m writing about, the reason will be obvious. Itâ€™s the Castello Davarg Kanam, and itâ€™s a wraparound case fashioned from full grain leather in the good old U.S of A. Fortunately, this doesnâ€™t mean that it was [Read More...]
Cult of Mac reader Derek Stein put me on to this hot hot leather case for the iPhone 5. It’s similar in intent to the TwelveSouth SurfacePad I re-reviewed on Friday in that it’s a simple wraparound leather cover. The differences are that it looks less functional and much longer lasting.
The case is called the Kanams and comes in a delicious variety of browns. It uses an [Read More...]
The Keyper isn’t strictly a Mac-related gadget, or even an iOS-related one. But I’m writing it up for a few reasons anyway. One, it’s gorgeous. Two, leather confections are a favorite of our esteemed deputy editor John Brownlee. And three, it actually is pretty iPhone and iPad friendly because it’ll stop your keys from scratching up their screens if you toss the lot n a bag or pocket together.
The Keyper [Read More...]
I used to use a sleeve-style case with my original iPad, and I loved it. Sleeves protect the iPad while you carry it, and let you experience the full slimline awesomeness of a naked tablet when you take it out to use. Then Apple made the iPad 2 and the Smart Cover and that was it. The only time I change cases now is if I need something rugged, or if I’m [Read More...]
Lovely, lovely leather.
Lisso by Skech Category: Cases Works With: iPhone 5 Price: $ 40-ish
Regular readers will know how much I dislike iPad cases, and that I only ever subject my iPhone to the confines of a miniature straitjacket. Theyâ€™ll also know that Iâ€™m a big fan of Skech cases in general. So what happened when Skech sent me some leathery iPhone covers to try out?
Surprise! I (quite) liked them.
The Beamhaus Pocket is a premium leather sleeve for the iPhone 5 thatâ€™s â€œinspired by old baseball mitts, broken-in leather jackets, and long-loved boots.â€Â Itâ€™s made from hand-selected leather from the Horween Leather Company, the oldest tannery in the United States, and itâ€™s built to provide your iPhone with complete protection from everyday scratches and scrapes.
On the front of the Pocket, thereâ€™s a little pouch thatâ€™ll hold up to three credit cards [Read More...]
We’re really stoked to show off this sleek and slim premium leather iPhone case from CaptCase. The all-round magnetically closing case encloses and protects your phone back and front without covering up the earpiece during calls, with a little slot for listening. It also has some other nice features such as a slender back-pocket for stashing in cards and cash, so you can ditch your wallet and travel light. If you are [Read More...]
LAS VEGAS, CES 2013 – It’d be easy to believe that CES is totally about the press, but the real reason its here is for device makers to hawk their wares to dealers, store chains and so on.
And that’s what’s happening at the iLuv booth, which this year has a neat Lightning iPhone dock (more on that in another post) and this super-stylish iPhone case.
This is theGOODbook. It is a book, and it is very, very good. It’s so hot that even though I’m a dedicated non-user of cases, I have the product page primed and ready to place my order.
The case is from Portland, Oregon, the home of bikes, beer and beards. It comes in black, or the incredible Saddle Tan colorway seen here, and has space not only for your iPhone but also for your credit cards, [Read More...]
An iPhone case has never “felt” this good (#rimshot). OK, I’ll stop with the puns already. This case for the iPhone 4 is fashioned from merino wool felt with a leather pocket (and strap, depending on the model). It comes in a variety of tasteful colors, and looks both tough and useful enough to be a permanent iPhone case, even for the committed bareback user.
Wool felt is one of my favorite materials – which is [Read More...]
