The Week in iPhone Cases: Animal tracks


The Collatio (iPhone 5; $40) is handmade from cowhide leather, providing a soft-touch surface.

In addition to providing end-to-end protection for your iPhone, the case provides three slots for credit cards and ID, plus an additional pocket for storing paper money.

Bling My Thing

The Luminous (iPhone 5; €50) is a wristlet designed to fit your iPhone 5 perfectly. It’s made of an exclusive, snake-print-fabricated leather that’s water resistant and easy to clean. A strategically cut hole allows you to access the phone’s camera without opening the bag.

The case, available in gold; gun metal; pink; black and gun metal; or black and gold, also includes a credit-card slot and a pocket for storing paper money.


The Hexa (iPhone 5; $59) covers every side of your iPad in beautiful leather and is available in red floater, pink floater, black saffiano, grey liquid, or brown saffiano.

The front of the case flips open to work as a stand for viewing the iPhone’s screen in portrait orientation.


The HardCase (iPhone 5; $35) is a snap-on, hardshell case made of durable polycarbonate to protect your handset from bumps and scratches.

Like all GelaSkins products, the HardCase is available in a number of different patterns and motifs, most of them with a matching screen wallpaper you can download for free.


The Tion (iPhone 5; $50) is a beautiful leather case that protects your handset from bumps and scratches while ensuring that all of its ports, controls, and cameras are accessible.

The case, which is available in white, black, brown, red, or tan, also features three convenient wallet pockets on the back. These can be used to hold plastic cards or some spare cash.


The Mummy (iPhone 5; $30) is made of a soft-touch TPU material; its premium gloss finish makes it slide easily in and out of your pocket, while the woven-pattern texture helps you keep a firm grip on it.

The case comes in white, black, pink, purple, or green.


The Epic (iPhone 5; $35) features a futuristic design that’s available in red or white with black accents.

The case uses a symmetric construction with all the appropriate cutouts for accessing the iPhone’s ports, controls, and cameras.

Twelve South

The BookBook (iPhone 5; $60) looks like a vintage book on the outside, but sports all kinds of protection on the inside, keeping your iPhone 5 safe from the vagaries of everyday life.

As a bonus, the case also comes with four plastic-card slots (one with a transparent window for an ID), and a pocket for paper money.


Need even more storage space? The AccordFolio (iPhone 4, 4S, and 5; $28) is made from PU leather and, in addition to keeping your handset safe, provides plenty of extra space for your other mobile essentials.

The multiple pockets large are enough to store a charger, cables, and even other mobile devices. The case comes in black or brown.
