I love my iPhone. It’s with me 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and I never set it down for anything. It gets good use and deserves good protection. It’s something I’ve invested money into and something I consistently use. The absolute least I could do is buy something simple, gorgeous, and useful for my phone. I could go buy a case. but I don’t like the added bulk and unnecessary add-ons that are attached with owning one. However, the Puur sleeve helps fix that problem. Finally.
If you’re anything like me, you probably follow a similar cycle when it comes to cases for your iPhone:
- Find and buy a nice looking case
- Use the case for a week
- Miss the slim profile and feel of your iPhone
- Remove the case and never touch it again
I can’t count the number of times I’ve done this. Actually, yes I can, because I still have the cases sitting in my top drawer. This has happened with every case I have ever tried.
That was, until I tried the Puur iPhone sleeve.
Founded in 2012 by Martin Karasek and his girlfriend Susan, PuurCo creates handmade wool felt & high quality leather bags and sleeves.
I was lucky enough to win one of these babies while I was in San Diego for Valio Con 2012 and I was instantly impressed. It’s simple, stylish, soft (this is important), and practical. The combination of leather and felt is beautiful. The felt provides a soft cushion that doesn’t hurt when it’s in your pocket, and the soft padding ensures that neither the phone or case will break if you happen to drop it. The front pocket works wonderfully, allowing you to easily carry up to 4 cards and 7 bills at any given time.
Some may feel it’s a hassle having to remove the device from the case in order to interact with it. I disagree; I feel this is a feature. We all love using our devices naked and the Puur sleeve provides the best of both worlds: stylish and effective protection, and the joy of a using your iPhone naked without the unwanted bulk of a case.
I can’t recommend this product enough. The build quality is superb, it looks great, and it largely eliminates the need to carry a full wallet in your back pocket. It’s by far the best case I’ve ever used and that’s definitely saying something.
And starting at $36 (€29.00), you can’t go wrong. Seriously. Buy one. I promise you won’t regret it.
I’ve already ordered one for my iPad and can’t wait to get one for my MacBook Air.
