I have tried several of the Waterfield iPhone cases including the iPhone wallet. They are all fabulous in their own way; but I have finally settled on the iPhone Hint. It's slim & sleek with a see-through window that let's you do a certain degree of touchscreen function through it; and it has a pocket on the back that is just perfect for my transit pass & debit card. I love it so much that if the new iPhone comes out with a larger form, I won't be able to upgrade until Waterfield releases an iPhone Hint to accommodate it!

Hey Gary,

I just wanted to drop a quick note, and let you know that the sleeves I ordered (iPhone 4 suede sleeves) has arrived. And its a beautiful product! It fits the Iphone 4 perfectly, with no extra bulk. Exactly as advertised. I will definitely recommend your products to my friends.

Thanks again for the excellent service, and product.

I bought my iPhone the other day, and due to a screwup, Apple let me pick any case I wanted in the store, free of charge. Knowing I had a iPhone 3g Suede Jacket on the way, I tried to find something at any price that was better than the iPhone 3G Suede Jacket. I could not. The $35 case I ended up getting at the Apple store did not satisfy my needs.

Today I received the iPhone Suede jacket, which was less than half the price, and it is EXACTLY what I was looking for. It adds almost no thickness in your pocket, protects your iPhone against annoying scratches and removes fingerprint grease without the possibility of scratching the phone. The jacket fits tightly around the iPhone, and there is just enough fabric to make sure it's protected.

I am recommending the iPhone 3G Suede Jacket, as well as Waterfield, to anyone who buys an iPhone. Gary not only sells great products, but he also cares about his customers. Some online retailers treat their customers like order numbers. Gary treats you as if you were walking into the Waterfield store. Kudos Gary, thanks for the great shopping experience.


Dear WD

This is my first time dealing with Waterfield Designs and I did not know what to expect. I have to say I am extremely impressed with the quality and design of my new iPhone Suede Jacket.

In addition your customer service, great product, and delivery exceeded my expectations. I am recommending you to all of my friends and I look forward to shopping with you in the future. What a wonderful company to do business with!

Thank you!



I just received the iPhone jacket. It is exactly what I was looking for, and it fits great.

I found the website by doing a fair amount of Google searching. I was trying to find a sleeve or something like that. I didn't want anything bulky or with a clip. I also didn't want to hide the great color customization I got from Colorware, Inc. with a case. This will protect my phone and screen when in my pocket while allowing me to take it out of the jacket when in use. Perfect.

Thanks again,

Battle Pocket Bulge With The Hint for iPhone

The Mac Observer

"I have the tan and it's taken on a nice used look that makes my hard-edged iPhone 4 look less industrial, more earthy."

"The window also lets you see who's calling or texting without you having to remove your phone first. The thick leather provides good drop-protection, and the thick plastic window protects your iPhone screen from scratches from other pocket residents."

"The back is covered with a sheer, stretchy fabric that expands to accommodate a small amount of cash and cards. While your mileage may vary, I found that I can carry about ten bills, folded in half, and four cards comfortably, but the fabric will stretch to hold twice that."

" Take only what you need -some cash, a few cards, and your iPhone- and you reduce your pocket profile significantly. The case is well constructed and durable, and the touch-sensitive window is a welcome convenience."

iPhone Case Review: WaterField Designs iPhone Hint for iPhone

Mobile Tech Review

"Slim, nicely built, provides good protection."

"The case is designed for those who want to carry their phone and a couple of credit cards with some bills, easy and fast to grab while you are running out the door."

"Once you slide the iPhone 4S into the case, you can see the screen via the front plastic window and use the phone through it."

"The leather pieces are thick and the case lines the inside with soft suede like lining, so it won't scratch your iPhone 4S while putting it in or taking it out of the case."

"One nice thing about the iPhone Hint is that it's very slim. When you take the phone out, the case adds very little bulk in your pocket or bag; and you can still use it as a slim wallet."

"The case is subtle yet very sturdy."

"You can use your phone's screen while in the case, and make phone calls with a headset (wired or wireless). The leather case has nice padding on the bottom and seriously stitched corners, and will protect your phone from drops and bumps."

Waterfield Designs iPhone 4 Hint review


"Want a hint about who called, or what time it is and at the same time have the great protection of a pouch? With the spanking new Hint from Waterfield Designs it is a possibility. It goes beyond that by also giving you the opportunity to work with the touchscreen while inside the pouch. A genius idea in my opinion that brings a new level of usability of the basic pouch design."

"The leather is soft naturally tanned, and have a surprisingly good quality considering the low price of the pouch. The back of the pouch has pocket for credit cards in a stretchy material. The front has a large cut-out covered with a thin sheet of plastic."

"...the large cut-out in the front that allows you to see who just called, texted or emailed. It is perfect with the latest iOS 5 update since notification Center can be a nightmare in other covered pouches."

"For protection the Hint is good giving an overall good impact and scratch protection. It is also easy to extract by simply pushing in the middle of the bottom of the pouch. Inserting is also quite easy once you get used to compensate for the not so rigid structure of the pouch."
