What is it?
This case from Snugg acts as a pouch for your iPhone 5/5S, and lets you hold cards and/or cash on the go as well. With a distressed leather look, this has a magnetic tab that once pulled up pulls your iPhone up too.
Look and feel
A good leather finish gives this a nice premium feel. Cotton stitches around the case hold the pouch together, while the inside of the case is lined with soft fibre, keeping your phone clean and shiny. A separate compartment holds items such as cards, credit cards, or a note or two.
On the front is etched the Snugg Logo, while the back features the pull tab, that has a small magnet in it to keep it ‘snug’ with the case.
At only 33g, this is extremely light, and adds no real mass to your phone.
Ease of use
The pouch itself is as easy as it gets to use. You will need to have your iPhone without a case, as even an ultra thin case makes it a real tight affair.
Just push your phone in, and pull it out using the tab as and when required.
Similarly, push your cards in, and pull them out as and when required.
Once your phone is in the case, it feels good and solid. The leather means that you won’t be scared of your phone slipping from your hand, and despite the extra exterior, there is very little extra volume to your iPhone.
While not really a characteristic of this case, there is and always will be the risk that as you pull your phone out of the pouch, it may fall down. I have seen it happen, and am just mentioning it as a warning, but as long as you know the limitations and are careful enough, it should not be a problem.
Having said that, while in the case, your phone is really well protected. All the corners have extra cushioning thanks to the nature of the pouch, and you wouldn’t be afraid to carry it in your jeans pockets or your backpack while travelling. A little bump or fall should be fine too.
