Three iPhone cases ship
WaterField Designs has unveiled three new cases for Apple's iPhone: The iPhone Smart Case, iPhone Travel Case (shown at right), and iPhone Suede Jacket. Each case offers a different level of protection and accessibility while maintaining a light look and feel, according to WaterField. The iPhone Smart Case is less than an inch thick with a smooth material, and features rubberized textile flanks on each side to provide a better grip. A multi-layered padding system combines a high-impact, rigid insert with a soft "Ultrasuede" liner to prevent damage. The iPhone Smart Case also offers multiple carrying options which include attaching the case to a strap, clipping the protected iPhone onto a belt, or slipping the device into a pocket. WaterField's iPhone Smart Case is priced from $35-$40 in three styles, while the iPhone Travel Case is available from $35-$40 in three sizes. WaterField's iPhone Suede Jacket ships for $9 in just one size.
The iPhone Travel Case
The company's iPhone Travel Case is designed to keep the iPhone and its accessories together and tangle-free. The custom-sized case includes padded interior compartments to keep accessories organized as well as separated, while self-locking zippers ensure the contents don't accidentally spill out. All three sizes maintain a thin and compact shape even when fully packed, according to WaterField, and are easily stowed in a backpack or purse.
The iPhone Suede Jacket
The iPhone Suede Jacket offers protection from scratches without adding bulk. The basic "Ultrasuede" case fits snugly on the iPhone, and doubles as a screen cleaner.
