Slim, snug, convenient, semi-padded, decent price
I had stopped by the TUMI store to take a look at their leather case and wasn't quite impressed because theirs is only leather on I had stopped by the TUMI store to take a look at their leather case and wasn't quite impressed because theirs is only leather on the back, but like an iPhone bumper on the sides. This one is more like the Coach iPhone cases (they looked and felt nice, but they didn't have any for the iPhone 5) in that it is all leather. I'm not sure if it is 100% leather (i.e., if the interior is supported in some way by plastic), but the leather is on the back and the sides as is clear from the pictures.
I also considered a hard case such as the rubberized Speck and the Adopted or Incase clear snap on cases. I didn't like the thickness and look of the Speck (rubber inside, hard shell outside) and didn't like the idea of simply a clear hard shell. So this case fit the bill the best.
1) nice look with the leather in a pebbled deep burgundy red
2) while not "cushioned" on the inside, I'm hoping that the construction of leather (rigid leather) gives it some cushioning without the added bulk like the Speck
3) it's stiff and a bit tough to put on the first time, but if you put it on multiple times I'd expect it to become more pliable, for better and worse. One thing I was concerned about with the harder cases is that they might put micro scratches on the metal band. So far, putting on the case and taking it off hasn't done anything noticeable, though the plastic cases shouldn't be so hard either to scratch the metal band.
4) The card slots really are for just two cards. They may become more flexible with use, but take the minimalist approach with the card slots, just as the iPhone seeks the minimal bliss. One ID, one card.
I've had a flexible case (perforated back) in the past that left some scratches on the back of an iPhone 4S. I'm hoping this closed back case does the job of keeping the phone free of scratches from trapped particles as well as providing sufficient protection when accidentally dropped on the pavement. With just enough lip over the front screen, close fitting edges, and all corners snuggly clasped, it looks good so far. And it should be easy enough to remove when I don't want the case on.
Concerning a sharpness comment by a reviewer, I did notice some variation in the finish of the cases. Most were rounded on their edges, but one did have a sharp rough edge near the wake button. So be sure to find one without sharp edges or simply file down the sharp edge to smooth it. The thickness of the sides of the case will still make operating the buttons a bit more difficult, but unless you have a case that covers the buttons, that'll probably be what you get with any of these open button snap on cases. …

Pretty for 9 months

It has enabled me to bring along my I've had the red version of this case on my iPhone 5 for 11 months, and I absolutely love it. It has enabled me to bring along my ID and one credit card (two if squeezed it in) without a purse. The front of this case is just high enough to protect my screen from touching a surface when laying my iPhone face down.
Normal wear-and-tear: About nine months into this case's constant use, one of the front seams lifted. I wasn't able to reaffix it, so I instead pulled it off. This revealed the hard, red case and isn't noticeable to the naked eye. However, this portion of the case is now closer to flush with the iPhone itself, lessening the raised protective factor. Also, the leather is now pulling from the plastic.
About 8 months in, the red dye started wearing off of the leather on the back of the case at friction points and areas raised by the inserted cards, revealing black coloration resembling dirt. Since I first thought the case was soiled, I tried cleaning these black areas with Kiwi saddle soap. No luck. I am able to scratch the black with my fingernail to reveal fresh red-dyed leather, but that trick only lasts for as long as the nap stays in that direction (i.e. a minute at most).
I have toyed with the idea of getting a black version of this case for my next purchase, but the truth is I'm a red-kind-of gal. So I'll just swallow the $40 to buy a new one of these every year or so. …

At first, it was difficult to fit cards in both slots of the case, but after a month or so, I'm able to slide both cards in easily At first, it was difficult to fit cards in both slots of the case, but after a month or so, I'm able to slide both cards in easily and still have it feeling secure. This is perfect for me as I only need my school ID and room key in most situations.
I love how the case does not add very much bulk to the phone itself and it looks sleek.
It seems to do a good job protecting my phone. I've dropped it several times and my phone is scratch and crack-less, but it was on carpet.
Still, it is overall an amazing case and I love it. …

Can I put a Oyster bus card or in Montreal, a Opus card in this case, right next to the iPhone. could there be magnetic problems? Or whatever?

I am assuming, you are talking about a "contactless" card?!
These cards are powered through an elec I am assuming, you are talking about a "contactless" card?!
These cards are powered through an electromagnetic field at 14 MHz (see ISO 14443).
The metallic (aluminum) back of the iphone 5 definitely interferes with this field (somewhat simplified: it absorbs energy from the electromagnetic field). As a result your card will most likely not receive enough remaining energy to work if it is fully pushed into the card slot of the case.
I have tried it out with my company badge and it didn't work when it was fully inserted. I had to push it out so it came off the top of the phone about half an inch.
But you must be aware that these results highly depend on the quality of the card reader (which delivers "the energy") - and the antenna design and the chip in your card).
Bottom line: you will have problems (either more or less). …
