Before I begin, let me preface this review with a confession, I’m a complete and total klutz. For those of you who are unfamiliar with my stature: I’m about 6’3” and 160 pounds. Now match my gangly figure with the coordination with of an infant and you’re just starting to get the picture. I’ve come to accept that nothing in my immediate circumference is ever safe, and my smartphone is no exception. So naturally, I began to counter my boundless butterfingers with protective cases for my beloved iPhone. However, I’ve tried everything from Otterbox to IvySkin, and every case seems to meet the same fate: either falling off or falling apart.
Then, www.thesnugg.com contacted me, asking if I could I could do a review on one of their cases, and I thought, Sure, why not? I had just upgraded to the iPhone 5 and my anxiety was increasing alongside the deterioration of my short-lived Apple store case. While I awaited my Snugg iPhone 5 Suede Pouch Case, I began to do some research on the company.
To my surprise, Snugg tablet and smartphone cases had a pretty impressive resume. Their cases are the not only the biggest seller in the United States, but the best sellers on Amazon.com in the US, UK, Germany, France and Japan. Also, it’s not just anyone purchasing these cases, there are big names using Snugg merchandise including Justin Timberlake, Hugh Jackman and Simon Coweland. Plus, they’ve supplied custom branded cases to Cadillac, GMC and even more prestigious: The CIA. Basically, these things are selling like hotcakes, Snugg told me that they’re selling many as one every 90 seconds.
And sure enough, my very own Snugg case arrived in the mail. I picked out their Pouch Case Style for the iPhone 5, which comes in Tan Suede, Black Leather and Brown Leather. After I finished caressing the soft, creamy exterior of my Tan Suede case, I slid my phone into the pouch opening. Not only does case appear to mold to the shape of your phone, but once it’s in the pouch, it’s virtually unscratchable. Also, to say that my phone fit ‘snugg’ is an understatement, it’s practically impossible for your phone to fall out. And if when you do want to remove your phone (this is where it gets cool), the case has this little magnetic tab on the front that pulls out a retractable elastic band while simultaneously releasing your phone. Extra bonus: on the backside of the case, there’s an extra pouch that holds business cards and cash!
Overall, the Snugg Pouch Case, like their other products is luxurious, trustworthy and affordable. Not only does it feature high quality materials and craftsmanship, but it also comes with a Lifetime Guarantee. Normally, I believe their iPhone Pouch Case retail price is an affordable $34.99, but on Snugg.com, they’re currently at the insanely cheap price of $14.99. Visit www.thesnugg.com.
