Rene Ritchie's pick of the week on MacBreak Weekly episode 396 is the recently announced Traveler Case for iPhone 5 and 5s from Pad & Quill. This is a wallet case made of hand crafted, full-grain leather with parachute grade stitching.
The Traveler Case has a rear pocket for cards, with a tab to pull them up for easy access. The case has an opening for the camera, and allows access to all of the phone’s functions. The iPhone is securely held in place with 3M clean release adhesive.
The Traveler Case comes in two colors: Onyx Black and Whiskey Brown. The black version will ship at the end of April, while brown case will arrive early May. It’s normally priced at $79.99, but Pad & Quill is taking preorders now for $69.99. Pad & Quill is known for its “old world” wood, leather, linen, and moleskin cases. They have products supporting a variety of products including Kindles, iPads, iPhones, and MacBooks.
