The Red Maloo iPhone Sleeve

Laure of ATLA sent us this review of her favourite iPhone accessory...

When I first got this felt magenta sleeve for my iPhone, I kind of just thought it was cool and pretty and would help keep my phone scratch-free. What I hadn't counted on was how much it would help me to simplify my life and save my back...

Soon after I started carrying the little sleeve, which by the way is really durable, I ran out to meet some friends and didn't feel like bringing along the ol purse. (And even as I girl I can't really tell you why i need such a big bag all the time, it's a bizarre habit). So I grabbed my phone, which I always need, and slipped my ID, a credit card and a $20 behind the phone in the sleeve.

Days later I was still using this system and able to just fly out of the house. If I was honest, I didn't really need to be carrying around all the stuff I was carrying, I could really just scale back to the essentials and travel a lot lighter each day. After all, isn't that the point of all this technology? To simplify life, not to get a bigger bag.

The Maloo Sleeve is especially perfect because it does have the space to slip a couple of things into it along with the phone and with the elastic band that holds it all in, I never have to worry about things falling out. The one drawback is that when the phone rings, you do have to pull it all the way out in order to use it unlike some other protective cases.

But since I was getting tired of lugging a purse around, I haven't found that I'm really missing anything. Any notes or numbers I need to write down I can do with my phone and anything else (like lipstick) I can really live without if it means a lighter load.
