Waterfield announces two slipcases for iPhone
There's are pretty much two camps when it comes to cases for the iPhone: case or no case. You're either in one or the other. The case camp further divides into several sub-genres, including skins, sleeves, holsters and pouches.

Waterfield Designs has released two new slip cases for iPhone, and one in particular has the potential to flip people in the no case camp. Their Suede Jacket is a super-simple, minimalist pouch case with a handy side pocket for your Bluetooth headset. People that don't want a case for whatever reason will appreciate its ability to protect the iPhone from scratches when you toss your iPhone in a bag or a purse.

The Suede Jacket isn't suede but is built from a thin, stretchy mesh material with an optional back pocket that is large enough to securely hold most small to mid-sized Bluetooth ear pieces and plenty large enough for ear buds. When it's empty, it lies flat against the Suede Jacket and you hardly notice it's there.

Specifications:

  • iPhone Suede Jacket Case US$9 / 2.5 " x 4.6" / 0.1oz
  • iPhone Suede Jacket Case with pocket US$13 / 2.5 " x 4.6" / 0.1oz  

If you're looking for a more substantial slipcase with extra protection check out the Waterfield Smart Case which fits both the 2G and 3G iPhone.
