JAVOedge Lumberjack Back Cover for iPhone 3G Review Listen to this article


Disclaimer: No trees were harmed in the making of this case.  Really!  Although it might look like wood from the outside, the Lumberjack Back Cover from JAVOedge is actually made from pressed cork.  Looking for an eco-friendly and stylish case for your iPhone 3G that doesn’t add much bulk?  This might be the one for you.

The inside of the case features a neoprene, which holds the phone securely and also prevents the back from becoming scratched by the dust or debris that sometimes gets trapped behind the phone.


This case is more about looks than protection.  The chrome of the iPhone is completely exposed eliminating any sort of lay on the table design. That’s not a bad thing for some.  If you like a minimalistic styled case that protects the back of the phone, but leaves the overall form factor intact, this fits the bill.


You have complete access to all of the iPhone’s buttons and ports while the case is on.  Even the SIM card tray is left accessible.


The dock connector is exposed, allowing you to both sync and charge your iPhone while it’s in the case.


The entire section that houses the volume rocket and vibrate switch has been cut away.  This makes it especially easy to access the vibrate switch, which with some cases is extremely difficult.

ThermoWorks Thermapen Mk4


The camera lens is fully exposed allowing pictures to be easily captured with the case on.


The eco-friendly cork offers a good degree of protection – as well as grip – when held in the hand because of its ergonomic design.

If you live a “green” life and want to carry it over to everything you do, even to your iPhone case, or if you’re just looking for something unique for your phone, then the JAVOedge Lumberjack Cover might be worth a look.

More information about the JAVOedge Lumberjack Cover can be gathered from the JAVOedge web site.

M.S.R.P – $19.95
