Otterbox Introduces New iPhone 5/5s Case With Space for Credit Cards and Cash

Otterbox has introduced iPhone case/wallet combination, the Commuter Series Wallet. The $45 case includes space for 3 credit cards and a single dollar bill, while coming in black, white/grey and pink/grey color combinations.

The new case competes against other wallet cases like TwelveSouth's BookBook, as well as dozens of other wallet cases on the market.

Commuter Wallet
- Multi-layer case guards against damage to your device
- Slimline design hides contents, keeping them safe and secure
- Self-adhering screen protector guards against scratches and scrapes to the glass display
- Access drawer holds up to three cards and one bill
- Audible click closure gives you peace of mind knowing your items are securely enclosed
- Access Wallet drawer contents without turning case over

The Commuter Series Wallet case, for the iPhone 5 and 5s, is available from Otterbox and other retailers for $45.

So now when you lose your phone, you also lose your wallet at the same time! (And vice versa.)

A single bill? That seems... Useless.

I suppose you could say that with one fewer thing to look after, maybe you'd be less likely to misplace it or be careless with it.

Hilarious. I never understood why people by Otter boxes at all. They look huge and hideous.


*I* don't use an Otterbox. I put Otterboxes on hand-me-down devices I give to the kids, to protect them from the inevitable drops, etc. But they are also popular with people who need a ruggedized case due to their work environment.

Just in case putting your iPhone in a regular otterbox didn't make it bulky enough.

Somewhere, Jonathan Ive sheds a single tear.

What a Piece of junk. It transforms the slimest Phone to date into a qube. Why not put in a tent and sleeping bag and condoms and whatnot?

I used a BookBook for about a year. I liked losing the wallet, but it added a lot of unnecessary bulk. I switched to the Safe Wallet (http://www.bullettrain.com/SAFEWallet.html) a little over a month ago and love this case. It allows me to hold more than the 2 card limit most wallet cases have (I have 5 and bill) and it has a secret stash spot for emergency cash. Great case.

You never understood? You can't imagine that someone in the world might have different requirements than you do? It's not hard if you try!

I don't use mine all the time, but I do when my iPhone is mounted on the handlebars of my bike! A couple of years ago, I couldn't avoid a block of wood in the road and hit it going very fast. I managed to not wipe out but my phone went flying about 20 up in the air and came down on the asphalt. It didn't have a scratch on the phone and never even stopped playing the music through my Bluetooth headset!

Another Otterbox Defender defender
Saved my phone too many times to count over the years

My iPhone is one of my tools during the day
Sometimes in my tool pouch/bag
Sometimes stuck between seat and console again in the damn truck

I ain't tryin' to impress nobody, I just want my tools to survive my world
My iPhone is one of my handiest tools...

The approach I've always preferred over wallet/phone-case combos is to carry only as much iPhone case as you really need, and, separately, carry only as much wallet as you really need, avoiding the refrigitoaster syndrome. There are some really thin/small wallets available online. I have one from all-ett.com I really like, but there's also bigskinny.net , bellroy.com , koyono.com , and likely numerous others.

(And if you really want to drink from the firehose, go hang out on edcforums.com for a while - the folks there are very interested in finding the best one of everything that you might carry in your pockets - and can probably hook you up with custom leather workers who can make all sorts of interesting to-your-spec cases.)
