As I'm sure we all have I have owned a few different cases for both iPhones. Everything from a ruber case, extra battery to waterproof. Now I have purchased my first twelve south product bookbook for my iphone 5 and WoW this thing is awesome! The quality is top notch the feel of quality leather and the smell I can't get enough. If you are like me and looking to free up some pocket space this case is the trick! With a few cards a DL and some money placed in it, it folds up and looks as a thin book. About the size of a little black book (for those who know of such). I am pleased so far and wanted to share my happiness in case others were looking for a true users perspective. The people at twelve south were more than friendly and provided excellent customer service. It's nice considering some of the people we get these days to have someone from this country and even better my home state SC.
