I’m not a huge fan of sleeve-style cases for the iPhone, preferring to have more protection surrounding my phone at all times. Still, there’s something about having a naked phone that is protected when not in use that is appealing. The Beyzacases Natural ID Slim is a great option if you are looking for a protective leather sleeve.
The sleeve is made with the beautiful leather and excellent craftsmanship that is the hallmark of the company’s offerings.
What makes this case the Natural ID Slim is the use of leather without a liner in order to keep it thin and light and the addition of a pocket on one side. The pocket, of course, can be used to hold a card, two or three. If you use Apple Pay this approach might be just the thing for a night on the town!
Here’s what the company has to say about the Natural ID Slim:
This elaborately handcrafted full grain leather Natural ID slim case does not have an extra inner lining, it keeps genuine leather touch inside the case. This provides safety from any scratches. With the no bulky surface provides ultra slim design with maximum comfort for smartphone. The soft and natural surface of the leather case makes it more original. Our designer created a cart slot on the backside of the case enabling more functionality for carrying your essential card, cash, etc.
The popularity of Natural ID Slim case derives from its sophisticated design. This is mixture of Modern and Traditional with unique saddle stitching. Due to this features, it became the favorite case of our customers.
The sleeve is sewn on three sides and, of course, leaves the fourth side open so you can easily slide you iPhone in and out of it. In order to make it easy to grab your iPhone when a call comes in or you need to check the movie schedule, Beyzacases kept about an inch of each side open. This lets you have wings that separate and make grabbing your iPhone a simple and quick process.
The issue with this, of course, is that it means a bit of each side of the iPhone remains exposed when you have the phone in the sleeve. It is a tradeoff that actually makes sense. After all, some sleeves actually make it difficult to remove your iPhone when the time comes to use it. That makes no sense.
Here’s a look at the case on camera:
The Natural ID Slim for iPhone 6 and 6s has an MSRP of $40.95. For that price you get gorgeous leather, Beyzacases fantastic craftsmanship, and a sleeve that will serve you well for a long time to come.
