Remember the fat wallets our dad’s carried? Unfortunately, cash was rarely responsible for the back pocket bulge with things like receipts, business cards, a spare key, contacts list and of course an accordion fold-out of family pictures taking up wallet real estate and stretching them into a back-breaking burden.
Today, our iPhones can carry virtually everything, our memories, our money, our contacts and even a virtual key with the right Smarthome app. And what remains could easily fit in a case that serves as both a wallet and iPhone protection.
E-commerce accessories company Edward Field exists to merge wallet and smartphone and its latest line called Cordura strays from the usual Italian leather of their product lines to cater to people active in outdoor leisure.
The Cordura wallets are made with a grosgrain fabric and tightly bound nylon for durability and come in a variety of bold colors: Neon yellow, royal blue, black and a black with Jackson Pollack-like paint splatter.
There are tight, secure pockets for a driver’s license, credit cards, and cash, and inside, is the Edward Field-signature micro-suction sheet that bonds to your phone minus any residue.
Wallet cases can definitely be an efficient part of an everyday carry, but with them, a user should be extra vigilant of their surroundings when using an iPhone in public. If someone grabs and runs with your phone, the other things you carry go with it.
You can order the Cordura wallet for $69 on the San Francisco-based company’s website. While there, check out the work its artisans do with leather. The Cordura is available for the iPhone lines 5 through 7 and Edward Field can ship within seven days.
