Review: PocoWallet Case for iPhone 5

March 26, 2013 — by Sette Capati1

Finally, I found the perfect case for my iPhone. It’s not just a case – it serves as my wallet – fashionable and stylish as ever. Pocomaru’s trendy mobile accessories and stellar cases prove that technology and fashion are perfect combinations.

Does elegance and functionality ring a bell? How about chicness with a dash of prissiness? Well, keep on reading.

Heres a hands-on review on Pocomaru’s PocoWallet by yours truly.

PocoWool Clutch and PocoWool Smart Cover Case for iPad were birthed out from Kickstarter projects spearheaded by entrepreneur and business development director Heidi Yu.

I received this unique case made from quality leather and wool a few days ago for review, and my impression? Totally, c-o-o-l and so c-h-i-c!

If you’re like me, an iPhone nudist who loves to use the device without a third-party bulky case, PocoWallet can actually give your iPhone the protection from daily use.

No need to worry about bruises and bumps – simply slip your phone and off you go – whether a walk at the park, run a few miles, out for a coffee, or to grocery shop – indeed, it’s an all around case.

What’s more, you can carry your credit card, a few dollars, IDs, or business card in the mini pocket. There’s also a space for the headset too.

If you happen to see the space flap where the stitches runs out, you don’t have to freak out. (At first, I thought it was a defect.) It’s not a factory defect; rather, it was intentionally unstitched for the hands-free headset.

I have three words to describe the PocoWallet – trendy – functional – intentional. It’s trendy because the designs reflect one’s personality and taste, functional because it’s more than just an iPhone case, and lastly intentional because it caters to a group of people, both men and women with common lifestyles and interests, which is a smart marketing approach to easily target the right audience.

Personally, I like the way it was designed. The stitches are consistent, and the wool perfectly placed on each side with elegance. The velvety texture on the inside flap protects your devices from scratches.

When I started using it, a lot of my friends asked me where they could find such fab case. I highly recommend it to users who are involved in normal daily tasks and light to moderate routines in an urban locale.

Though I have used it while running, it’s not advisable to use it in outdoor sports and extreme adventures.

On a more detailed note, you need to take the device from the case while charging it because its dimensions fit the iPhone 5 perfectly.

PocoWallet is available in six eye-catching colors: Blue martini, Apricot summer, Pêra-rita, Irish coffee, Yellow bird, and Bingo. It measures 6″ x 3.5″ x .75″ and has a buttonhole closure with magnetic snap.

The case can be matched with your #ootd or outfit for the day too. You may visit Pocomaru’s official website or Amazon and check out other cases. PocoWallet is now on sale for a modest price of $39.99.

Pocomaru is also looking for brand ambassadors. If you love fashion and technology, you might be the next model they are looking for.

How do you find the PocoWallet? Let us know what you think. If you happen to use any of their products, feel free to share them to our readers.

Disclaimer: I received this case free from the company, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own, and I tried my best to maintain objectivity in my review.

    Nice case, but I would recommend the Pong Research iPhone case over this. The World Health Organization has declared that cell phone radiation is a possible carcinogen. Ten studies connect cell phone radiation to diminished sperm count and sperm damage. Others raise health concerns such as altered brain metabolism, sleep disturbance and behavioral changes in children. That’s why I did research and found a case that can reduce radiation exposure. In the end though, I found a couple of reviews of Pong Research ‘s cases, that convinced me to give it a try. This case is built with an antenna in between layers of the back cover, which reduce exposure to radiation. Because Pong is the only technology proven in FCC-certified laboratories to reduce the exposure to mobile device radiation by up to 95% below the FCC limit without compromising the device’s ability to communicate.
