Phones Abroad, Featuring Knomo’s Leather Multifunctional iPhone Cases

By Eyeandpen @eyeandpen
Picture When I’m traveling, I always carry my iPhone on me, no matter what sort of trip, no matter what country, and it doesn’t matter whether I have service or not. Because the iPhone is my personal device where I work, I write (sometimes) and I take photos (when my full camera system isn’t necessary). It not only holds a great deal of information and media, but it also provides the savvy modern traveler with all the tools he needs to work on the fly, anywhere in the world. When I backpack Europe, I no longer take my camera to every location, often leaving it in my rucksack. Space and weight are big concerns for the backpacker lifestyle, but the burden improves with such a dynamic multifunctional device.
Picture Since I often lean toward the more rugged side of travel, it makes the protection of my mobile device that much more important. Sure, there are those huge box-like cases out there that are supposed to save your phone from the elements, as well as shock and drops, but I like something less bulky, and more stylish. One exception being that if I’m camping in the wilderness, I’ll opt for the waterproof beast of a case; which if I’m out in the wilds, I will typically only check the time as peace in nature is by far the finest travel experience one can have.
For the more stylish approach to phone cases, I like what Knomo’s done with their Premium Leather Folios, because they’re sleek, adding a double layer of protection, while also providing me with multiple options and features. Knomo’s latest edition is made of full ‘crazy-horse’ leather and the phone itself sits in a shock-resistant polycarbonate plastic casing, giving the phone an additional layer of support, especially where it counts: on the corners and sides of the device. There is a microfiber lining inside where two pockets give the user the ability to store credit cards, cash and receipts. These pockets aren’t large enough to replace a man’s wallet, but they sure come in handy on the fly.
Picture The folio opens to provide the ability of a horizontal viewing stand, while the overall build feels good, looks sleek and fashionable. The leather is thin but feels nice, and smells lovely, and overall, I found the build to be high quality, the leather the same, and the overall ergonomics of the case to be very satisfactory.
