Product combines style with functionality flawlessly.
Not too long ago I was introduced to the company DODOcase. They make some of the most high quality, luxury accessories for technology devices that I’ve ever seen. They strive to create a connection between craftsmen and consumer through their beautiful products. I’ve been fortunate enough to test out a few of their products (Apple Watch Charging Stand, Dual Charging Dock and Organizer, and Leather Laptop Portfolio) and have not been disappointed in any of them.
Based off of the success I had with the other products, I jumped at the opportunity to review the Leather and Canvas Phone Clutch.
The Leather and Canvas Phone Clutch is a very simple, but elegant pouch that you can carry your phone around in. While it’s large enough for most medium sized smart phones, it is marketed for the iPhone 6, which has a 4.7 inch screen. I had no problems with my phone fitting inside the clutch. I typically at least have a bumper style case on my phone and it fit like a glove. If you have a bulkier case like a defender series case or battery case, this may not work for you. There is a larger size that DODOcase makes, which is meant to fit the phablet size phones like the iPhone 6 Plus.
As mentioned in the description, the clutch is made from leather and canvas. The leather is genuine logger’s leather from American Tannery. The leather portion of the clutch is the top flap and the back. The remainder of the clutch is made out of canvas, with the interior being waxed canvas for added protection of your device. Like it’s big brother, the Leather Laptop Portfolio, the clutch has an antique brass snap closure. I’ve not had a problem with the clutch popping open once it’s been snapped close.
Because this is meant to be a carryall for users, there are places on the inside to carry credit cards and cash. There is some internal webbing that can be used to keep your cards separate from your phone. In addition to the interior, there is a large pocket along the backside that your phone should also fit into. I did not attempt this as I felt more secure with it in the main compartment.
Now that I’ve covered the basics, let me talk about functionality.
For about a week, I used the clutch almost exclusively with my iPhone. I really don’t have any complaints. It was great to be able to grab the clutch from my rather large purse or laptop bag and be able to run into the grocery store or pharmacy for a quick purchase. This clutch definitely wins for convenience. Since that initial testing period, I have continued to use the clutch to carry my debit card, rewards card for a local restaurant that I frequent and some cash. It’s great for this purpose, too.
This is a beautiful, high quality piece of craftsmanship that I can recommend wholeheartedly to anyone. It retails for around $70 and can be purchased directly from DODOcase. It comes in two colors – natural or black.
