As you can see from the video, the case is made from smooth, gorgeous leather. It looks… and feels… great. The unusual method of securing the iPhone inside makes the entire case incredibly sleek.

It is just about as thin as an iPhone case can be.

And it leaves the 3.5mm headphone jack, the Lightning connector, the speaker, and the microphone fully accessible.

One of my biggest issues with wallet-style cases is the flap. Simply put, it gets in the way. That is not the case here. The leather flap that is used to secure the iPhone inside the case is secured using a magnet. And it works both ways!! Yes, it can hold the flap closed OVER the iPhone or it can hold the flap open BEHIND the case. When used in this latter arrangement the flap is completely out of the way, and you have complete access to the phone’s screen. No more flopping flap to get in the flipping way!!

It is a fantastic design that address my main issue with this style of case; it is for that reason that this is one case I know I will continue to use.

MSRP: $54.95

What I Like: Looks classy; Gorgeous leather; Refined look; Cutouts for camera, flash and microphone are perfectly positioned; Closure flap secured with a magnet which can also be used to hold the flap on the back; Magia tape can be used and reused numerous times

What Needs Improvement: You’ll need to “trust” the tape since it holds your iPhone in place

Having a father who was heavily involved in early laser and fiber-optical research, Dan grew up surrounded by technology and gadgets. Dan’s father brought home one of the very first video games when he was young and Dan remembers seeing a “pre-release” touchtone phone. (When he asked his father what the “#” and “*” buttons were his dad said, “Some day, far in the future, we’ll have some use for them.”) Technology seemed to be in Dan’s blood but at some point he took a different path and ended up in the clergy. His passion for technology and gadgets never left him.
