I recently bought a second case for my iPhone even though I was perfectly happy with the one I already had. Well, maybe not perfectly …
The problem was, that although I love the Nutshell leather case I have, it relies on my wearing a belt and there are two problems with that:
- sometimes I’m not wearing a belt
- on cold and rainy days jerseys and zipped up jackets may make it hard to reach the phone holster.
But let me backtrack a little. I’ve used a Nutshell case for years and years now. Well, not a Nutshell, as over time my iPhone has outgrown its perfectly good case. As the iPhone size increased I was forced to get a new case to keep up. Each time I bought a new Nutshell because it does such a great job of protecting my phone.
This Premium Leather Smartphone Holster is designed to accommodate the Apple iPhone 7. This provides the best way of keeping the smartphone safe and close so that it is instantly to hand and safely stowed when not in use.
That little flap at the top has a super strong magnet, so even if you turn the case upside down the phone won’t fall out.
The belt clip works well, though sometimes when I’m gardening my posture and the clothes I’m wearing can force the case off my belt.
The leather of the case protects against random scuffs and scratches, and each of the several cases I’ve used has endured really well, with years more life left in it. If only the phones themselves hadn’t outgrown the cases.
Anyway, last winter, as I walked the dogs and wanted to take a photo or check something on the phone I’d have to struggle against bulky jackets and jerseys, or deal with my long raincoat to get to the phone. After a bit I took to carrying the case and phone in a pocket, but the belt clip makes the case rather bulky in a pocket. I’d also have to extract the case, open the flap, take the phone out, and then do something with the case just to take a photo. That was a pain.
I searched the web a bit and read great reviews for the Pack & Smooch felt cases so I ordered one.
Pack & Smooch says:
iPhone 7 Plus / 6s Plus / 6 Plus Handyhülle aus 100% Merino Wollfilz handmade in Hamburg |
Our Elie phone case offers 100 % Merino wool felt for further protection and a high quality look and feel. Thus, with just one elegant phone case, you can look after your worthy possessions and keep your smartphone riskless. Comfortable in your pocket with its slim-fit, round-edged design.
It seemed a bit odd to order a merino wool product from overseas, since New Zealand is a merino producer, but I guess that’s how the world works.
It took a while to ship from the other side of the world, but I’ve been using it to carry my phone in pockets and it meets my needs very well.
I like that I can stow my ophone, in the felt case, in a pocket and not worry about other pocket items scratching the phone. If I want to pull the phone out it’s easy, and the case can stay in the pocket.
The felt slipcase was very tight at first, but as you’d expect, it has eased a little.
I’m now perfectly happy with my two iPhone cases.
