- Soft Ultrasuede®
I had ordered three iPhone Suede Jackets - iPhone 6 (Naked) - size #5 three years ago and loved them - masterfully tailored and scaled to precision to embrace the phone; not too snug and not too loose. Unfortunately, with my recent order, the smallest size offered was #7. Size #7 is both too long and too wide a fit for the iPhone 6, which practically falls out of the encasement, having an inch of excess suede over the top. I do wish the size #5 was still available, as it would be ideal for the iPhone 6s, 7, 7s, and 8s I have currently.
My family has relied on Waterfield's suede iPhone sleeves since my very first iPhone 4S. Not sure how many we've gone through over the years, but we always keep coming back for more. :-) Here's hoping the iPhone 8 size becomes available again someday!
Why did you drop support for the iPhone 8?
I have had a suede jacket for my iPhone since I got one to cover my iPhone 6. That sleeve has been around the world, and never failed me. It's ratty, ragged, holes in the bottom corners and worn through in the top from thousands of pocket insertions and removals, but it still does the job of protecting the screen. I hate screen protectors, so this case had to do, and it did. The pocket has held train tickets, metro passes, debit/credit cards, driver's licenses, and served as a minimalist wallet more than once.
When I replaced the iPhone 6 with an iPhone XS, I ordered the suede jacket before I even ordered the case for the phone. The material is thicker, but still soft (and will wear in over time, I know). It is very tight, and yes it is a pain to pull out of the case. I find that pushing up from the bottom helps. The big issue is the jacket is a good 1/2" to 3/4" shorter than the old one, so even when inserted fully the phone's top is near the top of the material. This is not a major issue, but I liked being able to literally fold the old material over the phone in an envelope sort of way, tucking it in and making a little packet out of it. Can't do that with this one. Still, it's a fine case and I love being able to have my phone in my pocket in this case and not have to worry about screen scratches.
Clean, soft, durable and fits nicely in your pocket!
"The suede feels nice and the stitching is very well done."
"The suede is also soft enough that it can be used to clean the front and back glass on the phone, which I find very handy since I seem to get fingerprints all over the phone fairly quickly."
"When using a full fledged case, one of the things I enjoy most is that I can sit the phone down on a table (or really any other surface) and not worry about the bottom of the phone getting scratched up. I now find myself sitting the phone on top of this sleeve all the time while working at a desk, where I can see the phone in all its beauty without a thick case surrounding it."
"...fantastic alternative if you want to use your phone without adding any additional bulk. I feel no difference in my pocket with our without the sleeve on. It is very thin and will prevent things like change and keys from scratching up the phone while in your pocket."
"Great price considering the quality of this sleeve."
"Ultrasuede® hugs the iPhone making sure it doesn't spring out when you don't intend it to."
"The suede material is thin and light, but manages to add a solid exterior layer of protection to the iPhone. The Suede Jacket is available to hold the iPhone 5/5s/5c/ and iPhone 4/4s. There is a separate larger version which will slip over an iPhone when already in a separate fitted case, so it can be useful even if you should crave greater protection."
"The firm hug of the WaterField Designs iPhone Suede Jacket, coupled with its natural protection, creates a nice low profile protective solution when you want to keep your iPhone in your pocket or within a bag."
