Important things go in a case. You got a skull for your brain, a sleeve for your comb, and a wallet for your money. If you suffer from Georg Costanza’s ‘Exploding Wallet’ syndrome, you may want to check out these iPhone 5 wallets and give your back a break!
It’s an Organizer, a Secretary, and a Friend
George knows the importance of a good wallet. Every man has a wallet, and every wallet has a man. However if your wallet has more cow than your burger, your doing it wrong. Or right… depends on your point of view. Here’s a few different solutions to replace your morbidly obese good friend.
Pad and Quill Little Pocket Book
Yes, we love this case. Sorry if we keep bringing it up. From the hand crafted, precision milled, furniture finished baltic birch frame to the genuine thick grained leather, to the 4 inner pockets, to the cute little bookmark and Moleskine elastic band closure, it’s our favorite wallet case and we don’t plan on changing that opinion any time soon. It’s available now for $54.99. Read our full Pad and Quill review if you need more convincing.
Marware Stash for iPhone 5
The Marware Stash is a super cleverly designed iPhone wallet that stores your credit card and ID, and also turns into a stand in the most clever way imaginable. Your cards are stored in the back of this case, and when you want it to become a stand, you pull one out and slip it into a horizontal slot on the side and like magic you now have an iPhone stand that works in both landscape and portrait mode! The other cool thing about this case is you can use your credit cards ‘quick pay’ feature without removing it just by waving your iPhone over the receiver. The Marware Stash is available for $34.
Kensington Portafolio Flip Wallet
Kensington has a nice looking Portafolio wallet available that holds your iPhone and is secured closed with a magnetic closure. The case flips down to reveal a couple pockets for your cards and ID. It looks pretty too and comes in green or blue faux leather. If you’re not a fan of the book style wallet cases then this is a good option as it opens along the bottom and won’t obscure any microphones or ports. The Kensington Portafolio is available for $29.99.
i-Blason Leather Folio Wallet
Here’s our budget choice for an iPhone 5 wallet. i-Blason has made a genuine leather book folio style wallet with a magnetic closure that has 3 different pockets for your cards, IDs, and cash. Your iPhone is held in place in a polycarbonate plastic shell. This case stays pretty slim, has a pretty brown contrasting interior, and is available in hot pink (pictured) or black. The i-Blason iPhone 5 leather wallet is available for $14.95.
