If you’re constantly on the move, carrying around a backpack, messenger bag, or purse is going to get really annoying, really fast. You want to keep the essentials with you, but not burden yourself with too much extra weight. The best way to keep things together is with a case for your phone that can also be a wallet.
The Hex Axis Wallet for iPhone 5 is a natural leather case that is reinforced with plastic. It can hold three cards, and has a hidden pocket that will fit cash or a key. It comes in red or black, and looks like what you think a $45 case would. Of course there are holes placed appropriately for the camera, speaker, etc. Is it a bit superfluous? You bet! However, this is really nice for those of us that hate toting around an entire bag full of things we don’t need during the day. If you don’t like the price tag, you might be more inclined to go for a cheaper option.
