eHolster Front Pocket Wallet iPhone Case Review

Since winning a recent bout with back pain, I’ve begun, at the recommendation of my chiropractor, carrying my wallet in my front pants pocket. It lives on the right side of my trousers, while my iPhone lives on the left. That presents a problem when it comes time to place my keys somewhere. I don’t want to put my keys in the same pocket as my iPhone for fear that they will scratch it, and there isn’t much room left in the pocket where my wallet is stored. The result? I often times carry my keys on my belt or ask my wife to stick them in her purse for me. Neither solution is optimal. When I saw the eHolster iPhone Front Pocket Wallet, I knew I’d found a good alternative.

The wallet allows you to store credit cards, coins, bills and other items along with your iPhone in a sturdy leather sleeve. If you know me at all, you know how much I love convergence. With the eHolster Wallet, I’ve combined my iPhone and wallet into one and freed up valuable pocket space.

Before using the eHolster Wallet, I carried this. It’s not a ton of stuff by any means, but it’s still enough to take up both the front pockets of my trousers.

iPhone and Wallet

When I transferred everything into the eHolster Front Pocket Wallet iPhone Case, I ended up with this instead.

The eHolster Wallet features two credit card slots on the front, each of which can accommodate multiple cards, one ID, and a see-thru slot. On the back, there’s a soft, expanding pouch meant for your iPhone. Expanding is important because it allows it to work with your iPhone 4 with a Bumper Case on or without one.

Once I had everything stuffed inside the eHolster, the result was certainly thicker than my wallet alone, but I’m now able to put everything into one side of my pants, leaving the other side free for my keys, receipts, gum, or anything else I wish to put there.

The wallet also features a zippered pouch along the top. I used this for my bills as it’s the most secure spot.

Here’s everything I had stored inside the eHolster, and I still had plenty of room to spare: my iPhone 4, cash, 2 credit cards, 1 debit card, Starbucks Card, Health Insurance Card, Driver’s License, 2 automobile registrations, and 2 auto-insurance cards.

If you carry your wallet in your front trouser pocket or have been thinking of starting to do so and need a place to store your iPhone (or another similarly sized device), too, the eHolster Front Wallet with iPhone Pocket is something worth checking out.

I’m all about combining things whenever possible, and the holster wallet allows me to take two precious items and join them together in a very functional way.

The eHolster Front Wallet with iPhone Pocket sells for $39.99; it is available directly from the manufacturer.

    This is exactly what I’ve been wanting and needing. I was just about to pull the trigger on it, but unfortunately the cheapest shipping cost to Alaska is $30.46. That is just ridiculous. I won’t pay over thirty dollars in shipping for something they could probably toss in an envelope and ship for a few dollars.

    This sort of thing just boggles my mind. I hate having my shopping experiences ruined by horrendous shipping charges.
